    The grievance process does work but everyone must stand up in order for it to work. I have filed 2 grievances in 6 years. In both instances disciplinary actions were taken.

    There are a great deal of foreign players playing the Socal junior circuit and their cheating is just as prevalent.

    Some of the worst behavior I witnessed was at the OB this year.....
    Quite a few of the juniors were really disrespectful to the refs.
    What was shocking for me is the kids did it right in front of the parents, and the parents didn't bat an eye.
    There seemed to be a lack of respect for authority.

    It all goes back to the parents.

    Perhaps also generational and the schools are more lax.

    I have occasion to be at the public school, there is very little respect for the teachers and
    when I grew up that would not have been tolerated ( and that was a public school).

    I see the opposite. I sense a lot of respect for teachers and zero tolerance for bad behavior which was condoned in the past. It is just the opposite, with the educational establishment teaming up with the corporations to ensure production of respectful unquestioning slaves for the workplace. Today's kids are far better behaved and mature than previous generations, which also had much less competition. It is the intolerant older people who are the problem.

    Don't blame the kids.... it's a result of bad parenting.

    Is that your attempt at "dry humor"?

    Really? Your right?

    No, it's not a rule. If an umpire is called to a court by a player, it is ideal for the umpire to stay on that court for a few games, maybe more if there continues to be problems. Most tournaments where there are roving umpires, there is one umpire per 4, 6, or even 8 courts sometimes. Usually, they can't just be tied up on one match for the whole match. Of course, sometimes it has to happen. But, if after 2-3 games, there are no problems, they need to take care of other things on other courts. Obviously, after the umpire leaves, if there is another problem, they should stay there for the rest of the match.

    Agreed, but it does not help when the schools tolerate bad behavior. It now takes an act of congress to get kicked out of the public schools. At some point the kids will have to be held responsible for their own actions.

    I went to my niece's school conference ( not doing well). Public school.
    In the middle of the conference with the principal, guidance counselor, and three of her teachers,
    she pulled out her cell phone and started texting.
    No one said a word.

    No, just saying as it is. I have a 10th grader and see things as they are, not through some rosy lens view of the past. There are practically no discipline problems, school security is everywhere, bullying is zero. Students are grabbed and put into an electric cart to see the principal if they are seen outside a minute after bell rings. Standardized test scores are rising every year, and the exam questions are becoming more and more focused. Demeaning remarks and nicknames about teachers are a thing of the past.

    Wow, have you guys seen the recent film, BULLY?

    Mixed reviews in my house (and in my head), but I do recommend it.
