NOW we know why soccer is so popular with the kids. It’s the well-endowed streakers!
Video is slightly not safe for work. But you’ll watch it anyway, won’t you?
On what planet does this ever really work? Heck, it didn’t even work for arguably one of the greatest professional football players of all time, Brett Favre, why would you think it would work for you, Mr. New Zealand Youth Soccer Coach?
Here are the basics of the story: Steve Cain, 52, coached New Zealand’s under-17 World Cup boy’s soccer team. The mother of one of his players allegedly started flirting with him over the phone, sending suggestive and increasingly explicit emails. At one point, in what Cain now calls “a moment of madness” he drunkenly sent her a picture of his body that included his junk. Farved!
Things might have stayed all quiet except that Cain decided not to add the boy to the final squad (oops!) and in retaliation, his mother sent the naughty picture to Cain’s bosses. In the end, Cain resigned just weeks before taking the team to an international tournament.
On the plus side, Cain is one of only two licensed professional soccer coaches in the entire country, so likely he’ll get another job at some point, away from angry moms, of course.

Parents are naturally protective of their children and this rings exceptionally true in Australia, where a fight broke out at an Under-11 soccer match. Playing time–or the lack thereof–is believed to be the root of the problem between 2 fathers & a coach, who all took it to the level of a prison yard brawl when keys, scissors & a chair were used as weapons. (What, no one had a filed down toothbrush handle ready?)
Is having your son get more time on the field worth fighting over? A better question would be, why did one of them have scissors in the first place? Was he cutting coupons in the stands? Or does he always carry a pair around in case of a shanking emergency?
A ground marshal helped break up the fight and described one the combatants afterward: ”His hands were battered and bruised, he had cuts and abrasions, his shirt was torn, there were cuts on his face, neck and back.”
The Sydney Morning Herald has the details & remember, all this happened in front of kids 10 & under:
Parents called police, who took all three away and charged each with affray and common assault. Two were charged with carrying an offensive implement [a chair and scissors]. Children of both teams witnessed the altercation, including those whose parents were involved. The father of one of the Liverpool Olympic players said his 10-year-old son was ”frightened and upset by what had happened” and said there was a lot of swearing. He said the son of one of the men involved was begging his father ”please don’t” and trying to get him to stop.
