It isn't going to stop anyone else from doing it lol, this was a coaching and parenting issue. The whole "make an example out of them" argument is stupid in this scenario. It'll go viral for a week and then something else will catch everyone's attention. There will always be athletes with anger issues and it's up to the coaches to know when to step in before something like this happens. This was shocking to me at first but then I learned he had a similar incident last year, it made sense from there. That should've been a red flag from the get go and the coaches should bear the consequences as well not the kids who fought hard all year to make the playoffs.
I hope Buddy has cleaned up EMCC by now, but when you take on kids with character issues for the sake of winning that's what you get. They came down on his program pretty hard after the incident that you're referring to.
