While this issue may seem like a local issue, I think it is an interesting issue surrounding Business and politics, as well as sponsorship and armature teams.

No one has a right to play soccer for a private team. If she's actively undermining her sponsor, why should they support the team? It'd be like Dale Jr. saying on TV that he exclusively drinks Coke products even though he's sponsored by Pepsi. The soccer player wasn't being forced to eat the fish, she probably wasn't asked to speak publicly about her love for the fish, the article said she and her mother (probably mom's fault TBH) were interfering with the sponsorship agreement just because they personally did not like the fish and therefore have some kind of dignity interest in demanding that what they don't like goes away. Yes, you can protest, but don't expect some guarantee against retaliation, especially with something as trivial as a private children's soccer league.

I was not anticipating Mr. Reactionary to introduce 55 pieces of legislation in the South over the past week and a half, which is negating the rise in unemployment that should result from Irma.

Yep, Corporation's rights and corporate advertisements come before children.

The fun of all the other children who get to play soccer because a team exists come before one mom's weird grievance with penned fish.

We all need to learn that the world doesn't revolve around us, sad that it happened this way for the girl, but honestly this is a sport's club for young teens. I imagine that the coach is a volunteer or part timer and if he's full time employed, I doubt he make a lot of money. Imagine for him to have to deal with this kind of drama. I know enough people voluntering to work with children to hear the stories about obnoxious parents who suck the pleasure and time out of the coaches and the other parents.

Of course not. Why is this even a question?

That was my first thought. I coach basketball and have had parents like that. The mother seems like a bit of a pill.

Indeed. It's a travel soccer team, hardly a massive civil rights case.

If she doesn't like the sponsor the she shouldn't play for the team. The team can choose to have any legal sponsor.
