9. The South County (Va.) Raptors football team was disqualified from the playoffs after the league commissioner fired the team's coach. The coach's offense? Shifting the commissioner's son from defense to offense for a game. "I own the league," the commissioner reportedly said, and "the entire league exists so he can play defense."
The commissioner offered to hire another coach so the team could compete in the playoffs, but the kids rejected the offer. According to 13-year-old linebacker Michael Holland, the fired coach "is nice. He listens." The commissioner subsequently backed down, rehiring the coach (and his staff) for the playoffs.
