That guy - 2015-09-24

I could absolutely swear this was on the site, and now it's gone.

Anyway there's been an update that an assistant coach says he told them to do it because of racism:

So why does Texas take high school football so fucking seriously?

Discordia - 2015-09-24

I remember reading something recently that said since Texas is so damn big there are a lot of places with limited access to major sports teams. So they use the local HS football team to fill the void.

Searched my history. From cracked:

Impotent, frustrated rednecks live vicariously through the machismo of their offspring.

This is news?

Anaxagoras - 2015-09-24

When I first heard about this, it was described exactly as That guy describes it in his Description.

Turns out that's not an accurate summary:

http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/13721638/john-jay-assis tant-mack-breed-admitted-ordering-players-hit-referee-response-all eged-racist-comments-bad-calls

Summary: it sounds like the players were ordered to take out the ref not because of his in-game calls, but because he repeatedly called black players "niggers", and he also used a slur to describe hispanic players.

I'm not sure I agree with the assistant ref's actions.... but I understand.

Except he recanted his story saying he was just trying to protect the players from expulsion.

That guy - 2015-09-24

....all I said is what the assistant coach claimed to be the case.

Anaxagoras - 2015-09-24

I wasn't criticizing you, That guy. I just thought you had heard the same incorrect backstory that I had.

I missed the recantation, though. Seriously? The assistant coach tried to smear the ref just to protect his players? Wait... why am I surprised? This is fucking Texas. Of course he did.

That guy - 2015-09-25

yeah, that's crazy
even the fact that he admitted that he did that is crazy...

badideasinaction - 2015-09-25

I'm guessing he recanted it because when the locals heard the refs used racial slurs they liked him even more.

If anyone ever says anything racist, you can get physically violent with them. It's the law.

Scrimmjob - 2015-09-24

The ass. coach must have played too much mutant league football!

The awkward milling around of #12 after the hit.

That guy - 2015-09-25

Pro tip: hold your helmet with both hands and act like some kind of horrible confusion has happened.

If this was pro wrestling, they would have gotten away with it.
