    don't you dare

    Does this sound natural?
    (Given situation: One of the not so important members of the staff, e.g. the assistant greenkeeper or so, disturbed the tactics talk during the last training session before an important game. The assistant coach or a senior player then responds to him.)

    Mind your own business, buddy. Don't you dare comment on players or tactics ever again. Now go pump up some balls, clean the locker room or whatever.

    Re: don't you dare

    Once again, why do you have to be so rude?

    It only sounds natural coming from a loutish bully.

    I can't believe this sort of aggression is typical of most German people.

    I thought it's a realistic scenario in most countries' football/soccer teams. But maybe I'm wrong, I don't know...

    Re: don't you dare

    Are you posting these things from your personal experience? Are these things that you are really going to need to use in your everyday life? It seems like you're just assuming rather a lot about people you know nothing about. So far most of your posts have been fairly rude, impolite and, on occasion, downright offensive.
    Even your use of "not so important members of staff" is really quite unpleasant. The assistant greenkeeper has an important job (if such a job exists on a soccer team!). In fact, every member of staff is important in their own way.
    I suggest you spend a couple of days thinking about lovely things - fluffy bunny rabbits and rainbows. It might put you in a happier frame of mind and your posts might seem a bit less rage-filled!
