Abuse In Sport Gone Too Far

In the world of dumb and dumber relating to sports we are now hearing about the football players that charged the ref as well as a hockey ref that slapped a player.

Fact – the players that deliberately charged the football ref on September 4th and now we hear he will be back playing in January.

According to a sideline source and accounts provided to Outside the Lines of four John Jay players, game referee (Watts) used the N-word twice during the game.

One occasion was before and once after the infamous hits that were captured on video and has been seen on YouTube by more than 11 million people.

Assistant coach at John Jay High School in San Antonio told his school principal that he ordered his players to hit a referee in a Sept. 4 game out of anger that the official used racist language, according to evidence obtained by Outside the Lines.

The players 15-year-old sophomore Victor Rojas and 17-year-old senior Michael Moreno attended disciplinary hearings at the Northside Independent School District headquarters in San Antonio.

In a signed statement detailing his interactions with the head coach after the game, John Jay High School principal Robert Harris says the team’s secondary coach, Mack Breed, admitted he “directed the students to make the referee pay for his racial comments and calls.”

Watts has declined to comment, but his attorney, Alan Goldberger, said Watts denies he used racist remarks of any kind.

Gutierrez eventually met face-to-face with Harris in his (Harris’) car in the school parking lot and was told that “Coach Breed had disclosed to him [Gutierrez] that he directed the players to take out the referee.”

Gutierrez also stated that Coach Breed initially asked him what was going to happen to the players during their ride home from the game.

After Coach Gutierrez informed him that the players would be removed from the team, he informed Coach Gutierrez that he directed the players to strike the referee.”

That meeting, in the early-morning hours of Sept. 5, was followed by another meeting in Harris’ office, at 6 p.m. that same day.

Coach Breed stated he directed the students to make the referee pay for his racial comments and calls and now wants to take full responsibility for his actions.

Head-Coach (and I use that term loosely) Mr. Breed at one point stated that “he should have handled the referee himself.”

Acting as the class clown or coward he (Breed) declined to comment publicly about what he told his players.

A hearing is expected to take place at the University Interscholastic League when the governing body of Texas high school athletics could sanction Breed and John Jay’s football program.

Rojas and Moreno already have been assigned to an alternative school and are prohibited from even watching John Jay games as spectators.

Next we hear about a hockey referee in a video that has just surfaced of an incident that happened in January (2015) during a high school tournament game in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, not Ontario.

Two players from St. Mary’s College were suspended for the incident, which involved a ref smacking a player in the face, resulting in his teammates coming to his aid and attacking the ref.

Parents who were present during the incident accused the ref of using excessive force against the one player, as a blow to the head, they felt, was completely unnecessary.

Watch the footage and judge for yourself. We only see the last part, but it would be great to see the entire game for two reasons.

First to see how it was played and what tactics the coach used and second to see how much the game officials called or let go, so as to have it played without anyone getting injured.

Solution to both situations

Remove the football coach as he is more of a harm to the team and society and you have to ask how he acts at home

Suspend both of the players as well as the football referee and yes – refs actually make comments like he is said to have made.

For the hockey video

Suspend the ref for his hit on the player and suspend the players for their action on the referee.

Yes the ref should never have hit the player, but you have two teams in a situation such as this.

If the player is asked or directed to leave when asked to, the league has to come down harder on the coaching staff.

If it’s a concern in the NHL about concussions and fighting, when are the governing bodies of minor hockey going to stand up and be counted?

Respect is a two way street and everyone has to get on board or do something else!!
