He was certainly a man on a mission. No handshakes for the other team (other than the first player). He was heading straight for that player. I'm surprised it was only a trip.

What a douche.

Good job actually linking the video.
Sorry for the lame narrative of this video, but it appears the original has been removed.

Jesus. What an asshole! If he were in the U.S., this story would include him shooting someone.

Martin Tremblay swept out the leg of an opposing player while the teams were going through the typical hockey ritual of lining up to shake hands after the game.

Heh... Way to miss the point of the ritual and set an example for your players, Coach.

As a Canadian, I was extremely disappointed that a hockey parent or one of the players didn't pull his jacket over his head and beat the living snot out of him when he pulled that heinous act.

It was a cowardly act, and I'm glad the judge gave him jail time even though the prosecution didn't ask for it.

To be fair, the little kid flip him off. Offsetting penalties, skate 4 on 4.

In 10 years of coaching house hockey, we never went on the ice to shake hands. The players always skated past the benches. Good thing, probably saved me 15 days of jail time, because everyone except me and my players were complete asshats.
 
2013-02-27 03:28:17 PM
The failure of any member of the team or the parents to confront the coach after the trip makes them all perfect candidates to be drafted by the Buffalo Sabres.
 
2013-02-27 04:04:42 PM
As has been said before- if the kid scores a goal, he goes free, right?

Thanks for sharing. Wow, what an incredible ass. This guy should not be allowed anywhere near kids. I don't care what kind of attitude this kid might have been pulling during the game - this is not how you handle it. Dickbag.

Was the team they were playing from Chicago... my god that town can not let go of a grudge.
 
2013-02-27 07:25:52 PM
I guess since this is Canada, it's the best we can hope for. Ideally, he'd be taken out back and shot.

No one wonders why he was supposedly harassing that one kid the whole game? Or what he was saying to supposedly make the kid cry on the bench? I mean, how did the kid hear him? No one has a problem with the kid flipping him off or hitting him with a stick, I realize...but where's the evidence for the initial stuff?

While I agree that the guy is probably a dickbag...this is another step toward ensuring that no sane person wants to coach kids' athletics.

"Hey, I can deal with entitled parents and their asshole kids all day, get told to f*ck off all the time by people I'm trying to help...and if I ever do anything back to them, I will not only be fired and ostracized, but now I can do jail time, too!"

Actually we need more sane people coaching and less maniacs like this guy. My 10 year old daughter plays bball and softball. Her coaches are amazing. Unfortunately there are too many idiots taking kids sports WAY too seriously, almost trying to over compensate for there athletic failures as a youth.

I like the fact that the guy gets to serve his jail time on weekends, and will be free during the week.

That way, he'll still get his TimBits during the week.

But instead of doing this for 15 days, he should have to do this for 15 months...

Sure, we wonder out of curiosity but we think it is irrelevant to the story.

Feel free to give an example of what it could have been that justifies what the dude did.

Well, it makes me doubt most of the details in that story - haven't seen any athletes cry during a game on the bench at any level. Maybe the kid egged his house the day before. Who knows? Let's not act like it was the most vicious thing in the world. He tripped a kid. BFD. Maybe the kid was tripping his players the whole game and never getting called for it (I obviously haven't dealt with this on the coaching level, but I took up for teammates plenty in PE class when there was a small group of c*nts who liked to slash a ton in floor hockey, since there's no penalties and it's just for fun). Who knows? I can agree that he shouldn't have done it and, if the stories are true, is a consummate asshole, but I don't agree with the mindset behind "we need to ensure no one ever does anything to a child ever."

You know what? Kids can be assholes, too, and some could use a good comeuppance every once in a while. (Not that they're going to learn from getting tripped by an opposing coach)

Of course. But wait until they have to deal with enough assbag parents and kids that it's no longer worth it for them, because they can feel themselves spending more time pissed off about entitled assholes than they are about anything else.

It is a BFD. If you ever get to the point in your life where you feel it's necessary or justified to trip a kid after a game you should probably just go off yourself. Society certainly won't miss you.

No doubt.  There are constructive methods to deal with it.

There is no excuse for physically going after a kid, except to stop something worse from happening - breaking up a fight for example.

What if the kid's been cheap-shotting your own kid all game?

The "zero tolerance" mindset is probably the worst way to approach anything in life.

If he was targeting one kid to talk sh*t to for the whole game, then that makes me wonder what the history is between that kid and that dude and/or his family.

I totally understand what you're saying with the danger of "zero tolerance" mindsets, however, I'm ok having "zero tolerance" for assaulting a kid after a sporting event. There are proper channels to go through to file grievances and such in youth athletics whether it's dealing with a specific player or coach.

I've got little doubt there's "more to the story". That still doesn't make it ok to trip a player, especially when you're supposed to be going through the line shaking hands. If he was worked up to the point where he couldn't control himself he should have walked away and not gone through the line.

And I agree, he shouldn't have done it. But there's clearly way more to the story and covering it this way, with it having gone viral, has already cost him his job, wife, reputation, and ability to coach hockey...I feel like that's probably more than enough punishment on its own.

I just want to actually get as much of a story as possible, not hear from one side and have them heap on all this stuff about how he was saying mean things to the kid all game that made him cry, then tripped him...I mean, why that one kid? The kid was tough enough to score a goal after some of this trash talk and flip the dude off...don't really see the crying on the bench story as being likely. So I'd at least like to hear that dude's explanation for whatever it is.

Maybe he'll be like Sandusky, where he damns himself more and more as he continues to "defend" himself. But maybe that kid's been f*cking with him off the ice and it's mischief so the cops don't really care...it's kinda better to do this than to send his kids to do that work for him.

I mean, it's still wrong, but I don't really support giving the dude jail time that no one asked for, nor demonization of the guy on the internet.

Of course, I just went and found that link - okay, if the guy's on probation for other assault already, then yeah, jail's legit.

/though I wonder which kid was injured - kinda unfair to claim that he tripped both kids - clearly the goal was the 13-year-old kid and the 10-year-old was just skating close behind so he couldn't avoid the wreck.
//and since there actually was an injury as a result, it's also a more serious offense.
///here's a tip - if someone's on probation for a violent crime, you should probably not let them coach youth sports.
////though I suppose it was a gold-medal game so I guess he was a pretty good coach. Good to see that "you're good at your job, therefore we don't care about your criminal record" isn't limited to the USA.
