I saw the story about an AAU coach who was mad at a ref and argued with the ref and when the ref turned around to walk away the coach punched the ref and knocked him out. The ref was taken to the local hospital and the coach was arrested.
There is a picture of the ref on line. I saw it. I have a message to all coaches. Winning a Travel team AAU game isnt that important. IN my opinion, the coach who did this should be banned for life from ever coaching again. This is a game. Nothing more and nothing less.
Coaches who do this embarrass the coaching profession and they ruin it for all. In the story I read on line, the ref was making $20 reffing that game and was recovering from cancer and was using the money to pay for medical bills.
The whole thing is a disgrace, I hope the ref fully recovers.
