Hockey Referee Versus Parent Fight
We Came For Blood!!! Another Hockey-Related Ref Versus Parent Fight.
Youth hockey continues to rule in the "violent parents attacking refs/coaches" category as evidenced by this awesome video from London, Ontario.
It seems that a few parents got a little bent out of shape after a Kitchener player was injured when checked from behind by a London player, which sparked an on-ice fight. When the referee went to announce penalties - the London player was thrown out of the game and suspended for three more - the linesman was attacked while leaving the ice by a Kitchener parent. I demand a 100 game suspension!
You'll hear wonderfully colorful language in the video, including a hysterical woman yelling "Do your f****** job!" to the refs.
Anyway, no charges were ultimately filed against the attacker, and no one was hurt in the fight. I know, I'm disappointed too.
