Lightbulb Check now.

I am sorry, I cut and pasted the wrong url. My bad. It was not an AOL story. I did not notice the mistake. Now it should be corrected.

Peace

absolutely inexcusable.

11-year olds learning from the worst

Give him a prisoner uniform and make him sweep the floors before each of his son's games.

Would that be cruel and unusual or could that be classified as community service?

The man is definitely deserving of penalty/punishment.... Loss of his coaching position would be a start.

"since he was at the game as a parent...." blah blah blah. Doesn't matter. He's representing the school at all times. This guy should at least lose his coaching job.

Thumbs down

You don't really want to know what I'd like to see happen to this "teacher".

BTW - in my state (Oregon), assaulting a sports official is a Class A misdemeanor and will be prosecuted. Penalty is fine and/or imprisonment.

My state has the same thing, or is pushing for it atleast, last time I talked to a delegate he said he was pushing for it and he says that many states already have these type of rules.

How you act at an athletic contest as a coach is always relevant. It should not matter that you lost total control when acting in the capacity of a parent. It is unacceptable conduct regardless.

We had a peeping tom school teacher and the school system didn't care that the activity occurred when he wasn't at school. Can't have him around kids. while this is less severe, it seems that the same is true. I'm not sure I would say that he should be fired from the school system, but he should definitely be suspended from coaching.

That hardly sounds cruel, and if you give enough people the punishent, it won't be unusual any more.

Angry

The superintendent of Adair County Schools, Darryl Trease, says that since Shelton was at the game as a parent and not as a school he is not being suspended at this time.

So...under this line of thinking by the superintendent, Shelton gets arrested at his home for possession of illegal drugs, he wouldn't be suspended because he was at home as a parent not as a teacher. Time to load up the family and get tho this school system as quickly as possible. Oh the lessons that the children could learn...

According to a national publication, there are three sports officials assaulted everyday in the USA.

It's cruel to the kid. (I don't care about the father). I was shocked he wasn't being punished either-but was happy to see the last line "Trease did say that the school board is looking into the incident."

Sounds like a CYA statement to me.
