I'm glad it's getting some attention. Although I just read some of the comments (don't ask me why, lol) and some of them just really irritated the heck out of me.

This is such a terrible incident. I've got to admit, I'm glad the parents are giving the bad press this guy deserves. I also don't approve of what the coach did regarding Max's stick, but I've got to admit, I stand behind him on this move. Jeepers...what a mess!

I completely agree. There are at least 25 adult witnesses and yes, our stories are a bit different depending on where your seat was but the bottomline is the guy knocked/threw him to the ice unprovoked. There are 3 people with a different story, the 3 refs. And, like you Missi, I canNOT believe ALL the idiots who basically say he deserved it because he "probably" lipped off OR that his equipment was crap and that caused the injury.

IF he wasn't wearing his helmet correctly strapped or IF he wasn't wearing his mouthguard that also falls on the ref. The player gets a 10 minute penalty for safety equipment not being in place. If, at the very least he didn't do that part, he is NOT doing his job.

And, "we need to see video if this really happened". This isn't the NHL folks and even if a parent would have been taping, they would have stopped because play had stopped and we were waiting for the next puck to drop. BUT I do wish we had it so they could have ran that on the news.
