So, you put a kid in an environment where they're regularly being told what they can't do, with little room being left for them to let their wings fly, and you've pretty much got a situation ripe for rule breaking behavior. Naturally, this Twitter thread about how strict parenting can have the capacity for setting kids up for failure later in life, made some waves on Twitter.

Marshawn Lynch found himself in the middle of a heated confrontation with some angry football moms after they found out he'd been hurling "f-bombs" at their kids during a drill. In the footage you can see Marshawn Lynchexplain himself, and it looks like things ultimately get settled down and figured out by the end of the video. Definitely a little bit dramatic, but at least Lynch ran up there to make sure "they didn't throw dirt on his name."
