Letter: Moorhead fans disrespectful

During a recent volleyball game between Sartell, Minn., and Moorhead, while the Sartell team was being “introduced,” Moorhead fans stood up and turned their backs on the visiting team. This type of behavior should be totally unacceptable to the principal, athletic director, teachers, parents and children. Is this not just another form of bullying, not to mention unsportsmanlike and anti-social behavior, that needs to be eliminated from our schools?

The Sartell students, coaches and visitors are due an apology. The Moorhead fans are due a lesson in civility.

Where is the pride/dignity in representing our team/schools? Children get expelled from school for behavior such as this. Are we breeding haters? That was very disrespectful.
