Violence in Sports

             There is a lot of violence in sports such as when people don't want to talk out their problems with the player or team member they use violence to solve the problem. The involved are not just athletes, but the coaches, parents, referees, and the spectators are also involved in the violence. The three sports most involved are hockey, soccer, and football. Noticed was that after the September 11th terrorism took an increase in importance. Almost all teens, have been involved in our have seen violence in sports. Anything between a fight after a game, a fight during a game, an argument during or after a game, or a dissagreement with a ref can lead to a violent act.There is almost no difference between rough and violent, most athletes and fans don't know where rough play ends and violence begins. Recently sports have become extremely violent, with the fact that young players are being encouraged to hurt the opposite team at any means necessary, just to win a game it seems very stupid, that you would hurt someone else to prove that you are on a better team, or are a better player or just trying to prove to your coach, family and fans that you are a good team player. If I was on a team with a coach who taught me that it was right to hurt someone to win a game, I would most likely quit. After all sports are just sports they are not war. People should be getting taught to compete fairly and should be learning sportsman ship. Some of the injuries today are ruining lives for some of the ex - players, when someone breaks a bone because another player is to violent, they should be charged or thrown out of a game or even the league, beacause no ones career should be ruined or set back because of someone else's stupidity.
             It isn't just athletes that are being violent but in the stands the players become rowdy when the team they are going for begins to loose, it becomes a vicious war and all the spectators get into an argument
