    And that would get you kicked off most teams or at the very least a long suspension. Your tough guy attitude wouldn't fly in my wrestling room for long.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    The kid may be a wuss and the parents may have an axe to grind, BUT the coach should know that in this day and age, you just can't grab kids like that.

    Arrested? - no
    Fired? - no
    Warned that if it happens again he could be fired? - yes

    It is what it is.

    How about if he had not stepped in and a player was hurt.

    What lawsuits would he have faced for not acting to protect his player?

    My reaction if I were that school's Principal would be to tell the coach he did the best he could under the circumstances and to tell the parents if their son cannot maintain his composure on the field he cannot play sports.
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    This stuff happens in wrestling too. At this year's olympics the Canadian women's wrestling coach victor Zilberman was rough with a female wrestler in between rounds of a match. One story says he shook her, another says he slapped her, Martine says she didn't think anything of it. Zilberman was investigated, though eventually not penalized.

    LMAO. I guess your a tough guy. Sounds like you have a
    discipline problem.

    As for the young man on the team, his parents over reacted IMO. When I played i thought the face mask was there for the coach to grab and chew your A$$ out. Kids today are way to soft and sensitive.

    They are callling for a coach to be fired for this, they are CRAZY, that kid with parents acting like that would have never played when I played. MY coach Mike White who ended up coaching at the University of Tennessee for a stint and still coaches, stood about 5'4, was a corner back at Tennessee at one time, and took me by the face mask once, and almost knocked the crap out of me for hitting our star running back, Clark Duncan once during practice. Clark ended up playing at Tennessee and for those who know of red or yellow shirts, Clark had one and bottom line, I shouldn't have hit him, Coach White about tore me a new one. If football players and parents think this is tough, it is why some like myself will say that when I or we played we were men.

    I totally agree with Champ Kind on someone who would retaliate against a coach, they wouldn't be in my room at all after that. As to doing that to a coach, when I played, we seemed to respect our coaches enough that if someone would have retaliated or said crap like has been said against this coach, forget the coach, they would have had to answer to another 60 or so players who would have found a way to knock the crap out of you and you would end up quitting the team if you weren't kicked off the team first.
