Next time an adult forgets to act like a good sport at Little League, grab your camera. That video could earn you some money.

A referee is fighting back against parents who behave badly at youth sporting events by shaming them on social media.

Brian Barlow, of Oklahoma, is a longtime referee who is fed up with parents bullying officials.

He started a Facebook page called "Offside," where he's encouraging people who see parents behaving badly to shoot video, then send it to him.

Here's the incentive: he's promising to pay you $100 if he posts your video.
