TWO COACHES BANNED FOR LIFE AFTER LETTING THE FISTS FLY
Children's minor hockey is a part of every hockey player's childhood, and even for the parents who were just as active as the kids, it was just a great experience all around.
However, because it's a hockey game, things can often get quite heated, in most cases that is in regards to the players, or even parents, but rarely it is the coaches who are the ones involved. If it does not involve players in the game, certain matters should be handled off the ice.
This is in relation to an event that recently occurred in Canada, as 2 grown men are permanently banned from coaching after a tense game allegedly led to an altercation between the two coaches.
When CBC News Canada covered the story, the following details were disclosed:
''The coaches from the La Lièvre de Gatineau Minor Hockey Association allegedly fought with a third coach after a stormy under-15 A game between Jets 1 La Lièvre and Remparts Gatineau on Nov. 20.
An independent disciplinary committee made its decision Nov. 27. The two suspended coaches can no longer coach minor hockey anywhere in the country.
One man suffered minor injuries in the altercation and did not need to be taken to hospital, according to Gatineau police. Police confirmed to Radio-Canada by email that they're investigating the alleged incident, but have not formally laid charges.'' Said CBC News.
CBC News, and Hockey Canada's email exchange can be read below:
''In an email to CBC, Hockey Canada said it's aware of the incident, and that the bans imposed by Hockey Outaouais extend to any minor hockey association within the purview of the sport's national governing body.'' Said CBC news.
"Hockey Canada will recognize and enforce that disciplinary penalty, subject to any appeal rights that the individuals may have," Said Hockey Canada.
Was this a fair punishment to the fighting grown men?
