The coach is to blame here and he should be reprimanded for his actions. He's in charge of the team and even if it was a, "miss-communication, " he should have immediately sent the team back on the ice. I'm not buying into the miss-communication crap.

all that needed to happen here was the coach or the parents should write a letter to the editor, either explaining what happened or an apology,whatever is appropriate don't stick your head in the sand. And to "momma" yes your kids act like they are better than everyone else and if you don't get a grip on it now you will someday be sorry. High school sports has lost it purpose and thats why many districts are cutting sports programs. What I mean by that is that it was designed to teach kids to have character, to keep them moving and to get along with others. It is not necessarily about winning. Our coaches seem to put winning above everything else, and yes "misunderstanding myass" is right and you know it, every tournament has an award presentation at the end of the game, I am ashamed that your kids represent the city of Rome. You and your family are spineless as you hide in the shadows and hope this goes away, I don't think it will..

I'm not her. As the name states, I am a former parent. We've probably watched the same games from youth hockey on up. From your response, it is also obvious that I probably know a lot more about RFA hockey than you do. Of course, you don't know me so you don't know whether or not that's true.(It's interesting to think that we actually may know each other.) What has prompted me to write on this forum (for the first and only time) is the attack on a family. It's so sad that high school sports drives reasonably decent parents to irrationality. It makes me wonder what it is that prompts you to repeatedly attack these people and why is it so important to you? I hope that you are happy in your own life. If you are, be grateful and let it go. There is life after RFA hockey.

Knowing what I know, I do believe that the coach did indeed make a mistake and that it is his responsibility to rectify it. It is an opportunity to teach the team about good sportsmanship and respect. I also wish that they would stand at attention during the national anthem - but that's my thing. They are good kids and will learn well when taught the right thing.

You are an ignorant fool...her son was a very good hockey player and baseball player. They were smart and sent him to prep school where he did very well. I think he also played for the Syracuse Crunch. Get your facts straight before you make a dumbass comment. Also she is totally right about the situation.

Cuthberson is a piece of S*it!! His players all hate him!!! He had a great team last year and blew it!!! And you can say what you want about their record this year but they haven't played a team that has any talent. And will go no where again this season!
Black Knight 88 - it really sounds like you need to grow up and get over it, you are on here all the timing downing the coaches. I don't care how good of a coach you have thru out life, your athletic abilities comes from within...your either born with it or your not. Everybody wants to be an athlete, but sometimes it just doesn't work out that way. Instead of being negative all the time about this Hockey team and its coaching staff why don't you stand up and show ppl you can be an adult and not just a overlooked previous high school hockey player that didn't make the A list!!

I agree hes awesome.That's the problem these useless parents spoiled kids rule their home.Heaven forbid they get disciplined.They need discipline.Parents with spoiled kids your the ones looking like idiots.Be a parent.

"RFA hockey, coaches, players, apologize for actions" http://romesentinel.com/news...

The players and coaches did the right thing in writing what I believe to be a sincere apology.

That was such an insincere pathetic so called apology is was embarrassing for the school district to have let them put it in writing. Stamboly and the head coach must go.

In their letter, the players and coaches:
1. Expressed regret
2. Took responsibility for their actions
3. Resolved never to repeat the behavior
4. Attempted to repair the damage their actions caused.

In any book, that's a sincere apology.

Notwithstanding the cynicism expressed here, it is up to Rick Lefevre's family to determine whether or not it is sincere and whether or not they accept it, forgive and move on.

I am shocked at these posts. I was a guest at that game and it was clear that the kids did not know what was going on. I also remember getting a program as I walked into the rink and it did not state anything about awards being given out. I have been to may tournaments in my life and there is not always an award ceremony. I also think if you are going to bash people on a forum you should learn to spell that person's name. It is spelled Cuthbertson!!!

Many of the sports players at RFA are self-righteous and believe themselves to be much better than everyone else. I blame both the players and the parents: nice job teaching discipline and not living through your children.

The only people who care about stupid rome hockey are the A-hole parents who think there special because they got their kid into hockey or have the money to pay for stuff like that.
Do you realize all the high and mighty hockey parents who think there so well off are upto their eyeballs in debt and credit card debt.
