I think if we DID teach Tykes how to fight we'd have a bigger problem with the parents. They'd want to join in too! (lol). They tend to be the loudest group of parents. They calm down as the years go by but many get loud again when the fighting starts in Jr. It's an endless circle!
You raise a good point. Why is fighting acceptable in Jr. when it's not in Bantam for example? The players change during that time. Some of the parents just go with the flow. I guess it's up to the long time fans and the ADMINISTRATORS to effect change if that's what we want. As pointed out by xxref's good points above, we may have that choice taken out of our hands.
