    Well, from what I understand from THIS coach's story, he just hit him in the arm, he didn't go all "Woody Hayes" on him.

    But yeah, could you imagine someone hitting say, Bobby Knight back!

    They are scary enough when they scream and throw things. It's the kind of thing that escalates maybe the more press they get.

    The players should carry firearms to defend themselves. If the coach hit them they could justifiably shoot him.

    I think the player involved will know what the intent was,and if it was meant in an abusive way. The bad thing about these situations it that one bad coach/teacher can turn your child off of a sport they love to play.. which is sad. My youngest daughter used to love soccer until she ended up with a coach that made the game unpleasant for her,with his yelling and putting players he had no patience for in the same positions (never giving them a chance). I've been trying to get her back into it but she refuses now.

    Coaches seem to revert to a 2 yr olds tantrum in times of stress.

    How awful! Did the parents complain about this coach? The fact that an adult "bullies" little kids for the "Win by any means necessary" train of thought makes me livid. Who do they think they are? :cuckoo:

    Hitting someone who does not have the option to strike back should be grounds for firing.

    If a player struck a coach, what would be the penalty?
