There's a referee shortage in TN High School Athletics due to unruly parents. Bernard Childress of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) says the sideline harrassment has to stop. The shortage is causing games to be rescheduled, or cancelled. He'll join Ben Hall on OpenLine for a discussion on what effect this may be having on the kids.
