I think the coach of this team is showing incredably bad sportsmanship. Rather than appologizing, he is basically saying the young man deserved it and he can't fight. Is he really the person we want moulding our youth and showing them the values to exhibit? I don't think so.

I would ask that Mr. maples resign from his coaching duties. He should be held accountable for part of this outrage and be charged as well.

I totally agree. We put grown men in jail for fighting, why would we allow someone to lead a team of growing young men who favors violence.
