Threats don't make the sport

Over enthusiastic parent/sports involvement make the news:
In October of 1995, Richard King, 36, pleaded guilty to making threatening and obscene phone calls to two boys who were star players on his son’s Little League team in Blue Springs, Mo., to get them to reconsider their plans to quit the team.
According to prosecutors, King called the boys several times while he was on a business trip in China and threatened to kill one kid and his parents and to commit sex crimes on the kid’s whole family.
He’d skipped
out of town
on tip-toe
The most notorious fetishist toe-sucker of the last 20 years, Michael Wyatt, now age 50, who had been arrested in the 1990s in Conway, Ark., and nearby towns, returned to the news last August.
Two Conway women reported in separate incidents that a man had approached them, complimented their toes, and asked to suck them — and in one case, to imagine out loud doing violent things to the toes.
Both women picked Wyatt out of a police lineup, but a third woman, reporting a similar incident, could not identify the perpetrator.
Wyatt earlier served one year of a four-year prison term but was last heard from, according to news databases, in 1999.
