Douche Move

Home - by - February 14, 2013 - 23:45 America/New_York - 17 Comments

A high school hockey goalie, disgruntled about not getting enough playing time, puts the puck into his own net, gives the finger to the coaches and walks off the ice. Gee, I guess the coaches were completely wrong about this knob’s character.

The team lost the game.

    I got cut from my little league baseball team and from my high school basketball team.

    All my buds (and my older brothers) were good athletes and I SUCKED.

    I realized it, became successful in other endeavors, still have same friends.

    GROW UP, DOUCHENOZZLE! There are many other things you can do (be), without being an asshole about it.

    The pop up ads are definitely IOTW related. Haven’t changed my browser. Gotta go.

    We don’t know the back story on this. Not much honor in US what with gangsters paid millions to hurt opposing QBs, rampant doping, Obama, etc. I don’t jump to the same conclusion anymore about what people should do. No rules apply is the new rule.

    There is a LOT of favoritism in youth and high school sports. Though I do not condone what this player did, he could certainly be the victim (yes, I said the v-word) of that type of coaching. One of my nephews was playing high school football as a sophomore. The coach’s son (also a sophomore) got starting running back even though the other backs were bigger, stronger, faster, and better. The parents saw it, the players saw it, and even his coaching staff saw it. Didn’t matter. My nephew played that year as backup running back. When he got a chance, he outshone the coach’s son by a wide margin. Quit at the end of the season and never played again because of the favoritism.

    College and Pros are different. Colleges need money and if they have an exciting player, HE PLAYS! The Pros are there to win the Super Bowl. If you have a better player, he starts. It’s very rare to not see favoritism with youth football and high school football.

    I’m sure this hockey team is more of the same. I would have told the player to just suck it up. If he tries out for a college hockey team, this video will follow him wherever he goes. Not smart. Remember, the internet is forever.

    @Debbie — Remember, this is how BFH helps pay the bills. It’s just a click to close. Occasionally, I will click through to the ads so as to give the IOTW crew a few more shekels. It doesn’t hurt that much and it allows IOTW to continue. I consider this place a sort of cyber-home, as I’m sure some of the other commenters do as well. The ads are a minor inconvenience for the continuation of the site.

    My (0bama inflation adjusted) $20.

    No doubt the equipment belonged to the school, so he had one more trip to make to the locker room. If he didn’t make it there, he’s in for an ass-kicking. If he didn’t turn in the equipment, he’s a felon (senior= 18 y/o, yes?).

    Absolutely no good side to this, but teenagers do tend to be impulsive.

    And, yes, that video WILL follow him for the next few years.

    Re: popunders. Apparently these are not managed by Google because they are absolutely NOT interest-oriented, unlike the ads in the URC of the iOTW webpage. (And they’re only a burden if your computer is really under-RAMmed. If you’re running Win7, two mouseclicks dumps them all at once. Same ¢¢¢ for iOTW.)

    For example: I bought some underwear from Duluth yesterday. All of a sudden a certain set of ad spaces (here and elsewhere) all had Duluth ads in them. Dilemma: since the ads are a fact of life do you want them aimed at your interests or not (empty your cookie file)?

    Maybe the coach was a democrat progressive and the school mabye full of liberal asshats? I’d love to see the day when the Joint Chiefs finally give the finger to Obama and walk away taking most of the military with them.

    @SgtZim, unfortunately the Joint Chiefs are now career politicians. They should no longer be considered military.

    Spoiled little boy, no doubt “raised” by spoiled baby boomers.

    Just another incident in an America that grows more feral by the day.

    @Stranded good idea about openning the ads occasionally. If you can’t donate, then find other ways to patronize. I hope they track how long you look at the ads though. I guess I could just open other tabs for a spell and let the ad go for a while.

    Oh, yeah, and if I don’t get to play I’m going to quit this site and go over to the DailyKos to click their ads!
