I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often, the behavior at rinks has been an issue for years. It's worse now than it was 5 or 6 years ago, and it was pretty bad then.
People do not understand it is a game. Sure those PLAYING THE GAME may get heated. But the parents and spectators losing it is terrible. That is what the zebras are for on the ice. Yes, I know your feelings about them. They are human. That is why these places/rinks are getting Live Barn. It is not just to watch Junior play but to watch the knuckleheads in the stands and around the glass. It is sold to rinks as extra security.
There is no reason for anyone to put hands on another person's kid. Even if the kid maybe act like their parents in the stands on the ice.
Are we going to need a Detail Officer in every rink, every weekend?
People complaining about tuition fees now. Just wait until you are paying for a detail officer at the rate of ($28.00 PLUS AN HOUR) and a union contract 4 to 8 hours minimum.
It will be cutting into their profits. There goes tuition up.
Just relax and watch the game (sit on your hands and shut your mouth).
If you read the post. It says zebras handle the stuff on the ICE.
If you are going to reply to a post read it first.
Problems like this should not happen, you are ADULTS?
If you cannot act mature and be respectful don't go to the kid's game. Also do not partake in adult spirits before the kids/youth event.
Then the Police get called.
When and where will the next rink rage incident happen? Long overdue.
Please tell me it was the 'Wait until the hittin' starts' dad who got his butt whooped.
BJT u16 played Boch Militia u15 in Foxboro on Monday. BJT won 5-1.
oh I see... he punched his own kid
It was the Fall Classic tourney
Heard police were called and the father who punched the kid got arrested. Also, heard the father that hit the kid got taken out in an ambulance. Anyone know the real story? Any BJT U16 or Militia U15 people here??? Bueller, Bueller, Anyone, Anyone???
Did this happen or not? I expect there would have been more outrage and coverage if it was as the original poster described.
Sorry your dad got punched.
Yes it did happen. Was precipitated by an end of the game skirmish on the ice between a few of the players. As Boch skated off the ice, a BJT dad slapped a Boch kid and got mauled by two dads and a couple of the players.
Was that the end of it? Cops involved? Sounds pretty serious.
Doesn't matter. Foxboro is supposed to be a "zero tolerance" facility.
whos got the initials of bjt Dad
