Bring It stars get bashed for being horrible examples for teens

There's no dance battle quite like a field battle, but the competitive football stadium atmosphere has a way of bringing out the worst in each team's coach. Tonight on Bring It, the coaches let the pressure get to them. Their behavior was completely uncalled for — not to mention a terrible reflection on their respective teams.

Bad parenting is nothing new on Bring It, but the coaches aren't much better. Arguably, the most mature people on this show are the young dancers. They managed to conduct themselves with at least a little decorum during tonight's episode, which is a lot more than you can say about their coaches.

During a very important competition, Dancing Dolls coach Dianna and Lowndes County Dance Company coach McCoy got into a huge fight about whether their respective dances went over the time limit. Dianna made a point of counting LCDC's battle dances carefully, and according to her calculations, the team went over the time limit. But according to McCoy, it's really not a big deal if a performance is a few seconds too long. The LCDC coach assumed (perhaps correctly) that Dianna just needed something to nitpick because her rival was just too darn good.

Interestingly enough, while Dianna was the one to bring up the issue of timing, this same problem ultimately ended up biting her team in the butt, as the reason for their loss was mainly their super-long entrance with the marching band. Next time, Dianna better think twice about approaching another coach and yelling her head off, as this just makes her look like a huge hypocrite and a poor sport.

Twitter fans can't seem to agree about whether the Lowndes County Dance Company or the Dancing Dolls looked better. The Dancing Dolls brought challenging choreography and an ambitious concept to the football field, but the LCDC's performance was very clean. Fans have differing opinions about who deserved to come out on top, but most agree that the coaches were out of line.


It must be very embarrassing for the dancers to see not only their parents but also their coaches acting up. It's amazing that, surrounded by so many poor examples, these young ladies are so professional. It's time for Dianna and McCoy to observe the dancers' good behavior and follow suit. If they continue to scream at each other, it's only a matter of time before their impressionable young students do the same.
