More Disgraceful Than Saban
After reading NYBobby’s article about that scumbag Nick Saban I had no idea that another coach would out do Saban’s douchebaggery. When I woke up this morning I stumbled upon an article about a Canadian Youth Hockey coach who got sentenced to 2 weeks in jail for assaulting a 13 and a 10 year old hockey player. Yes you read that correctly, a grown man who is supposed to be shaping our youth through positive athletic programs ASSAULTED two boys that only Jerry Sandusky would have been willing to lay his hands on.
The Vancouver pee wee hockey coach, 48-year old Martin Tremblay, was clearly upset with his opponents and he decided to take that anger out during the post-game handshakes as he stuck his foot out and took down two kids at once. The most astonishing part about Martin’s assault was the fact that his team actually won the game. Here is the video of this horrendous act taking place.
If you laughed at that video it was probably because of the reaction of the man filming it or because you are a sadistic SOB who enjoys watching kids get hurt. This ‘trip heard around the world’ occurred last summer but Trembley’s sentence was given this morning. I find it hilarious that this confused Canadian will have to explain to his cellmates that the reason he is incarcerated was due to him tripping two children. It doesn’t seem like that will give him too much street cred.
The Judge of Trembley’s trial, Patrick Chen, went on to say “The tripping of the boys was akin to a cowardly sucker punch on an unsuspecting victim.” I’d agree with that but the fact that it was an adult assaulting a 10 and 13 year old makes it even worse. If I saw this move at the end of an NHL game I would be thrilled because the player who got tripped would stand up and fight back. There is never a reason that an adult should lay their hands on a kid and the fact that this adult was in a mentor type position takes it to a whole other level. I do not agree with the punishment of 2 weeks in jail.
I feel that instead of 15 days in jail, Trembley’s punishment should 1 week in jail but the whole time he is locked up he needs to wear a shirt that reads “I touched little boys.” Then on the day he is released I think the 10 and 13 year old boys that were tripped should get one free shot with their hockey sticks to hit Tremblay anywhere they want. To me, that would be a sufficient punishment. All of that being said, Martin Tremblay is a HUGE piece of trash and he never deserves to be within 5-feet of any kid under the age of 18 ever again.
