My daughter had a traumatic game over the weekend. The opposing teams male fans hurled insults at our gilrs, calling them out by name and saying they sucked, along with insults about their bodies and some sexual in nature. Our fans and parents were on the other end and had no idea until the game was over. Some people feel it's "spirited rivalry" and the girls need to tune it out and ignore it. Easier said than done when it is personal jabs at your appearance and abilities. My daughter cried for a couple of hours and said she had never been so humiliated in her life. Supposedly the school's athletic director finally put a stop to it after the fans insulted the referee's trying to stop it as well. I found out from some friends the same thing happened when their school played there.
Do you think we have a case to complain to our state athletic board about bullying, or is all fair in a "spirited rivalry"?
