A review of the QUALITY of the show, NOT if I agree with the content
I am surprised to see this show getting such low ratings. I believe what is occurring is users are rating the show based on whether they agree if youth tackle football is "good" or "bad." The content that the show depicts indeed shows some horrible behavior by coaches and parents (and plenty of good things in my opinion), but don't rate the show poorly because you don't like what you see! For example, one of my favorite shows in the last decade was "To Catch a Predator." Did I rate the show poorly because I hate child molesters? No ... it was a good show that exposed an interesting (and horrible) part of our society. I'm in no way comparing the subjects of this show to the monsters on "To Catch a Predator," by the way!
For "Friday Night Tykes," each episode (I've seen three so far) has been highly entertaining, and yes, provocative. There is almost no narration from the show; the characters do their own talking, and the audience can draw their own conclusions. Although at first I thought this might be another train-wreck of a show (like "Toddlers and Tiaras" or "Honey BooBoo"), but it indeed sparks worthwhile conversation and debate and is more worthwhile to watch and discuss versus most of the lousy mindless reality shows out there. Sure, there are plenty of train-wreck moments, but I see a greater point and purpose for the show.
In summary, I plan on continuing to tune in, and I hope others do the same.
