funk_soul_bubby: I hate to say it but bmckenna makes valid points. And this is not in defense of the guy. This goes on. It goes on in athletics, in your military, in your law enforcement. The necessity of it has been debated for years. What discipline is not necessarily most acceptable but most effective? This was a major issue when I was at USMA and they were under some fire for hazing, during the Nineties, when political correctness became more of an issue, mostly due to the access to things that technology provided. I remember them showing the Colonel Jessup scene from A Few Good Men and having a discussion with plebes about what is acceptable and what is not. But it didn't change the fact that some of those kids had an idea of discipline that they already bought into.The video is painful to watch, and I assert again that I in no way defend the guy. But this is a leadership style that is not new and won't be going away any time soon.
Third Leg: Ooops wrong thread.
HotWingConspiracy: C'mon guys, he was just being "intense".
WhoopAssWayne: Time for some GenX geezing. I've been watching the videos of his 'abuse' on ESPN for the last half hour, and he hasn't done anything that my middle school basketball coach didn't do back in the 80s. All the cursing, gnashing of teeth, and sideline gymnastics? Check. Throwing balls at players? Check. All the head games? Check. And the kid on the team who always got the worst end of everything? Yep, the coach's son.

Killer Cars: I really, really want to see this jackass throw a basketball at LeBron's or Kobe's head and call them a derogatory slur at practice. It will not end well...for him.
