SEATTLE (AP) - Two Seattle-area youth football teams for players 9 and 10 years old have been banned from the playoffs - not for anything they’ve done wrong, but because of their parents.

The council for the Greater Eastside Junior Football Association banned the Renton Five Stars and the Bothell Cougars after a brawl in the stands at an Oct. 4 game in Bothell.

KOMO reports (https://bit.ly/ZEU3Mn) police cited two Bothell parents and recommended assault charges.

The Bothell Cougars did not qualify for the playoffs this year, but the Renton Five Stars did. The Renton parents feel their punishment is especially unfair.
