Ha ha. Quit your race baiting Shannon, it's disgusting. (Were you the lady sitting beside the two loud mouths in the first few trows?) Nothing that happened in the stands had anything to do with levels of melanin.

Anyways, dude down front was taunting Mavs kicker/DB Guistini as he came off the field.
Guistini's dad, who is on the Mavs staff, politely asked the taunter to take it easy.

Dude and his sidekick (easily recognizable guy to anyone who has been at a Hilltopper game over the last few years) immediately take offense and situation begins to escalate.  Other fans start shouting too.

A Mavs fan went up to the booth and asked a league rep to come down.
Rep came and talked to the dude, and both he and his sidekick were able to leave the Mavs players alone, and cheer for their own boys for the rest of the game. Situation resolved. Hilltoppers go home happy.

What is disturbing though, is you accusing the Mavs fans of being racists. That is NOT okay. Abhorrent and disgusting.

If this is true...
If any Coach wants to turn toward to the stands and correct anyone from their association. I applaud that.

To Guistini Dad/Coach
BUT anyone who thinks they can correct any stranger for razing. ? Who do you think you are. The moral barometer for the world!

Hey Mavericks Coach. Shut up. Face forward and Coach. You are not the moral police for all fans. Just because you are a youth football coach you think you have the authority to shut the mouths of the opposition and control what they say?

Arrogant prick

Arrogant prick? I can see that someone's feeling got hurt at being called out for their behaviour.

Correcting a stranger or standing up to someone taunting his son....I guess the that depends on perspective.

If someone was being defensive about their man getting asked to tone down his juvenile behavior, yeah, it might seem like the dad was correcting and policing.
If someone was less emotionally involved in the situation, they'd probably be able to acknowledge that a dad asking someone to leave his son alone is okay, even when the taunters happen to have a lot more melanin than the dad does.

BTW, if any fans want to turn to the field and taunt the kids, I don't applaud that, but if they must, then taunt someone in their own organization.

Speaking of correcting within an organization, one of the Mavs fans did tell the other Mavs fans to leave the clown alone. It worked.

Hilltoppers have a brand new reputation that will follow them around. They act obnoxiously, taunt opposing teams teenage players and post poorly spelled racist insults towards white caucasians on public football forums.
They hate Calgary and say it is a "terrible place" and insult "old white people".
All involved in Youth Football in Calgary have taken note. In the future Hilltoppers will be watched closely and dealt with as this behaviour arises. Your team is not good enough to taunt anyone by the way. That reckoning will be coming.

I guess you are not a Bulldog or Colts fan.

I say this bc...This crazy, loud, annoying, fat, sh1t for brains dad had his kid playing for the dogs last year. Now he moved his kid to the Colts. The worse parent I have ever seen. He yells at his sons team like he is the sworn enemy of his sons team. He makes fun of all the players and coaches other than his precious son. A few times he has been asked to shut the f$&k up and a few Dads held back to knocking the fat F*&k out.

Look for this guy next time you play the Colts. He usually stands alone, no one can stand his comments. But you can still hear him

Sounds like the Hilltoppers are regretting coming online and posting unrelated topics, try to steer the silly thread they started in another direction. it is called "deflecting" - to try to defuse tension or avoid answering a question by trying to steer the conversation in a different direction. Another form of deflection is to try to turn the anger or at least the heat away from themselves. They may do this by showing that they meant no harm or by blaming someone else. The blame game can end up making them look guilty or at least treacherous.

How about this for a solution: if is that big of an issue then the league should make sure opposing players to the Hilltoppers are on the opposite side of the field where there are not stands. The second solution is that the fans just ask each other not to taunt the opposing team.
Any time you even have the appearance of taunting an opponent there is a possibility that the other team may take it the wrong way.
It also depends on how bad the taunts are. We are talking 20 feet away from the bench. The opposing coaches can hear everything.

Teams will have a parent liaison in the stands. The liaison will warn the parent. The liaison might ask the parent to leave for a bit and cool off. The team will shame the parent by having the parent understand the actions with the son present!

If it still fails the league steps in and starts banning the parent. 1 game, several games, a season. I have seen it go for 1 full drop your kid off see ya in 3 hrs. Have a nice day

at the end of the day this topic involves one team the Hilltoppers whose parents came on the board apparently and were posting comments that can only be taken as conflict oriented and pointing at the Mavericks for some sort of verbal response that looks like they thought it was a taunt, it's a small group of people, here it gets magnified and blown up beyond all recognition, cheer, yell but don't taunt opponents
here is a bet, the hilltoppers game tonight happens without a single problem in the stands, get a life people, acting like there was a stabbing

Wow. Wow. Wow. Leave it to you mean and you create something that did not happen. No one taunted anyone. My husband was cheering and was basically told to shut the f up. That simple. I am 1000% percent sure no one taunted anyone. The men were getting excited about the game and kept on cheering The coaches thought because there team were losing that they should not cheer and that is where all this comes from. I was sitting right there. I was shocked when the long hair guy looked back and asked them to be cheer less because the other tram was losing. That is ridiculous if you ask me.

You have Bi-Polar Disorder

Bipolar disorder, formerly called manic depression, is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression).

When you become depressed, you may feel sad or hopeless and lose interest or pleasure in most activities. When your mood shifts to mania or hypomania (less extreme than mania), you may feel euphoric, full of energy or unusually irritable. These mood swings can affect sleep, energy, activity, judgment, behavior and the ability to think clearly.

Episodes of mood swings may occur rarely or multiple times a year. While most people will experience some emotional symptoms between episodes, some may not experience any.

Although bipolar disorder is a lifelong condition, you can manage your mood swings and other symptoms by following a treatment plan. In most cases, bipolar disorder is treated with medications and psychological counseling (psychotherapy).

Bipolar disorder care at Mayo Clinic

There are several types of bipolar and related disorders. They may include mania or hypomania and depression. Symptoms can cause unpredictable changes in mood and behavior, resulting in significant distress and difficulty in life.

Bipolar I disorder. You've had at least one manic episode that may be preceded or followed by hypomanic or major depressive episodes. In some cases, mania may trigger a break from reality (psychosis).
Bipolar II disorder. You've had at least one major depressive episode and at least one hypomanic episode, but you've never had a manic episode.
Cyclothymic disorder. You've had at least two years — or one year in children and teenagers — of many periods of hypomania symptoms and periods of depressive symptoms (though less severe than major depression).
Other types. These include, for example, bipolar and related disorders induced by certain drugs or alcohol or due to a medical condition, such as Cushing's disease, multiple sclerosis or stroke.
Bipolar II disorder is not a milder form of bipolar I disorder, but a separate diagnosis. While the manic episodes of bipolar I disorder can be severe and dangerous, individuals with bipolar II disorder can be depressed for longer periods, which can cause significant impairment.

Although bipolar disorder can occur at any age, typically it's diagnosed in the teenage years or early 20s. Symptoms can vary from person to person, and symptoms may vary over time.

Mania and hypomania
Mania and hypomania are two distinct types of episodes, but they have the same symptoms. Mania is more severe than hypomania and causes more noticeable problems at work, school and social activities, as well as relationship difficulties. Mania may also trigger a break from reality (psychosis) and require hospitalization.

Both a manic and a hypomanic episode include three or more of these symptoms:

Abnormally upbeat, jumpy or wired
Increased activity, energy or agitation
Exaggerated sense of well-being and self-confidence (euphoria)
Decreased need for sleep
Unusual talkativeness
Racing thoughts
Poor decision-making — for example, going on buying sprees, taking sexual risks or making foolish investments
Major depressive episode
A major depressive episode includes symptoms that are severe enough to cause noticeable difficulty in day-to-day activities, such as work, school, social activities or relationships. An episode includes five or more of these symptoms:

Depressed mood, such as feeling sad, empty, hopeless or tearful (in children and teens, depressed mood can appear as irritability)
Marked loss of interest or feeling no pleasure in all — or almost all — activities
Significant weight loss when not dieting, weight gain, or decrease or increase in appetite (in children, failure to gain weight as expected can be a sign of depression)
Either insomnia or sleeping too much
Either restlessness or slowed behavior
Fatigue or loss of energy
Feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt
Decreased ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness
Thinking about, planning or attempting suicide
Other features of bipolar disorder
Signs and symptoms of bipolar I and bipolar II disorders may include other features, such as anxious distress, melancholy, psychosis or others. The timing of symptoms may include diagnostic labels such as mixed or rapid cycling. In addition, bipolar symptoms may occur during pregnancy or change with the seasons.

Symptoms in children and teens
Symptoms of bipolar disorder can be difficult to identify in children and teens. It's often hard to tell whether these are normal ups and downs, the results of stress or trauma, or signs of a mental health problem other than bipolar disorder.

Children and teens may have distinct major depressive or manic or hypomanic episodes, but the pattern can vary from that of adults with bipolar disorder. And moods can rapidly shift during episodes. Some children may have periods without mood symptoms between episodes.

The most prominent signs of bipolar disorder in children and teenagers may include severe mood swings that are different from their usual mood swings.

When to see a doctor
Despite the mood extremes, people with bipolar disorder often don't recognize how much their emotional instability disrupts their lives and the lives of their loved ones and don't get the treatment they need.

And if you're like some people with bipolar disorder, you may enjoy the feelings of euphoria and cycles of being more productive. However, this euphoria is always followed by an emotional crash that can leave you depressed, worn out — and perhaps in financial, legal or relationship trouble.

If you have any symptoms of depression or mania, see your doctor or mental health professional. Bipolar disorder doesn't get better on its own. Getting treatment from a mental health professional with experience in bipolar disorder can help you get your symptoms under control.

When to get emergency help
Suicidal thoughts and behavior are common among people with bipolar disorder. If you have thoughts of hurting yourself, call 911 or your local emergency number immediately, go to an emergency room, or confide in a trusted relative or friend. Or call a suicide hotline number — in the United States, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255).

If you have a loved one who is in danger of suicide or has made a suicide attempt, make sure someone stays with that person. Call 911 or your local emergency number immediately. Or, if you think you can do so safely, take the person to the nearest hospital emergency room.

Request an Appointment at Mayo Clinic
The exact cause of bipolar disorder is unknown, but several factors may be involved, such as:

Biological differences. People with bipolar disorder appear to have physical changes in their brains. The significance of these changes is still uncertain but may eventually help pinpoint causes.
Genetics. Bipolar disorder is more common in people who have a first-degree relative, such as a sibling or parent, with the condition. Researchers are trying to find genes that may be involved in causing bipolar disorder.
Risk factors
Factors that may increase the risk of developing bipolar disorder or act as a trigger for the first episode include:

Having a first-degree relative, such as a parent or sibling, with bipolar disorder
Periods of high stress, such as the death of a loved one or other traumatic event
Drug or alcohol abuse
Left untreated, bipolar disorder can result in serious problems that affect every area of your life, such as:

Problems related to drug and alcohol use
Suicide or suicide attempts
Legal or financial problems
Damaged relationships
Poor work or school performance
Co-occurring conditions
If you have bipolar disorder, you may also have another health condition that needs to be treated along with bipolar disorder. Some conditions can worsen bipolar disorder symptoms or make treatment less successful. Examples include:

Anxiety disorders
Eating disorders
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Alcohol or drug problems
Physical health problems, such as heart disease, thyroid problems, headaches or obesity
There's no sure way to prevent bipolar disorder. However, getting treatment at the earliest sign of a mental health disorder can help prevent bipolar disorder or other mental health conditions from worsening.

If you've been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, some strategies can help prevent minor symptoms from becoming full-blown episodes of mania or depression:

Pay attention to warning signs. Addressing symptoms early on can prevent episodes from getting worse. You may have identified a pattern to your bipolar episodes and what triggers them. Call your doctor if you feel you're falling into an episode of depression or mania. Involve family members or friends in watching for warning signs.
Avoid drugs and alcohol. Using alcohol or recreational drugs can worsen your symptoms and make them more likely to come back.
Take your medications exactly as directed. You may be tempted to stop treatment — but don't. Stopping your medication or reducing your dose on your own may cause withdrawal effects or your symptoms may worsen or return.
