IF you want to see two grown men fight about something pathetic, go to a children’s Sunday league football match, experts have confirmed.
The Institute of Studies found that children’s football matches had surpassed pubs and clubs on a Saturday night as the place to experience a proper British barney.
Sunday league football dad, Martin Bishop said: “I just want my son to have the football career that I definitely deserved.
“So if some other kid puts in a bad tackle and risks that, then it goes without saying that I have to punch his dad in retaliation.
“Or his uncle. Or his older brother. Or his mum’s boyfriend who’s just trying his best to show the kid he cares by coming to watch him play football.”
The Institute’s Professor Henry Brubaker added: “This is probably symbolic of something or other. Work it out for yourselves.”
