Youth Hockey Coach Trips Opposing Player

Video provided by TYT Sports from You Tube

Tremblay, a youth hockey coach in British Columbia was arrested for allegedly tripping an opposing player during the customary handshakes that follow hockey games. The coach's team was the winning team and the coach claims he slipped and that it was an accident. I'll let you decide. You can watch the video above.

I watched the the video and it doesn't look like an accident to me. The kid that was tripped injured his arm and will have to be in a cast. There is absolutely no place in hockey, especially youth hockey, for incidents like this.

It's my guess that the Canadian Mounties will charge the goon coach with assault after their investigation is over. Coaches are supposed to respect the game and teach their players about honor, respect and sportsmanship.

It's safe to say that this moron didn't take these things into account. If I were a parent of a player on this coach's team, I wouldn't feel safe allowing my child to play hockey for him. It's obvious that this coach should receive a lifetime ban from all levels of hockey and also go to jail.

Not only are the actions of Tremblay unacceptable, it's unacceptable to batter a child. From the video, that's exactly what it looks like this guy did. If you see anything differently from watching the video, please provide me with your comments (Comment link is at the bottom of the post).

As a hockey fan, I'm disgusted by the actions of Tremblay. I think he is a disgusting person and is a poor role model for young men. This guy should be ashamed of himself. He is a disgrace to hockey and sports.
What I'm confused about is that I have no idea why this guy would do what it looks like he did.

It's absolutely ridiculous. If this moron is found guilty, having a prison sentence handed out to him would be an example for any other coach who would think about doing something this stupid and asinine.

Update: 10:20 AM 02/27/2013 - The coach in question, Martin Tremblay was sentenced to 15 days in jail for assaulting the youth hockey player.
