This kind of behavior should not be allowed to go unpunished or it will only encourage others to follow. This is not a joke nor a harmless prank, it is a criminal offense.

I thought that coaches are supposed to teach sportmanship - not offer bribes to 8 year old players to _attack_ the umpires -- that is what Mark Downs admitted to in court. This type of behavior is what the lowest type of scum would teach. Shame on you Mark Downs!

What a douchebag. This is the kind of person who belongs in jail. It's hard enough for autistic children to fit in and be accepted, this coming from an adult is unforgivable. Hope you have fun in prison! The parents should sue him and leave him penniless for his dreadful conduct.
