    They are done.

    No doubt, no question. Probably referred to court for assault.

    We don't allow our kids to yell at refs, much less hit them, no matter how bad they are.

    Banned from the game for life.
    That was clearly intentional and planned.

    The school kicked them off the team. UIL is investigating and will most likely ban them in the state. School is looking into other punishment, and the ref has filed a criminal complaint with the police. They are in a world of hurt now.

    They need to be dealt with harshly. They need to serve as an example for any other wannabe thugs who think that it's okay to attack adult authority figures--or anyone else for that matter.

    Well said Think.
    These High school jocks get put on a pedestal way too early and they generally get away with everything.
    Violence, sexual assault, theft.

    They'll be charged as juveniles. Probation at most. Record sealed. Won't effect their lives past High School.

    You all do realize...these idiots weren't really "athletes", they didn't care about the game, or their team. They just wanted in on the internet sensationalism game. This is the equivalent of the knock-out game, polar bear hunting.

    They are loving the hits their video is getting on-line, their buddies are blowing up their phones about how cool they were, and how it was so worth it, and how they'll be legends...:rolleyes:

    Thugs. That's all they are.

    Did you see that hit? They weren't good enough to play past HS.:rolleyes:

    But seriously, very few kids play college ball, compared to HS ball. It's under 10%, 8% I think, and only 2.5 % play at Div 1 schools.

    Yep, I looked it up. The best way to play in college...lacrosse, ice hockey, and baseball, at between 11-13%. Number one...fencing at 29%. But there are only 650 of them in the nation.

    I thought "how bad could it be?"
    It was a pretty lame tackle, and spearing afterwards... :p
    I bet the ref is fine. But should still press charges!

    Heard something about this today. ESPN radio. They said he told (3) players to do it and only two followed the "code red" as they said. From what I understand also he told them to do it due to the ref using racial slurs on the players, which he denies.

    Those kids are old enough to know better as demonstrated by the 3rd player, but I cannot put the total blame squarely on them anymore.

    They get the boot as far as I'm concerned. No different than assault to me.

    Also heard on talk radio, that the so called racial slur, (which the ref's lawyer denies he said) was "You're in America, speak English."..... Also that the refs best man in his wedding was black, and his grandmother was from Mexico, so the BS factor seems pretty high here.

    The coach apparently told the school board that he told them to do it the next day. It is just now coming out..
    He resigned today.

    The coach, then, is a weasely prick for setting up two kids to go do his dirty work for him, while leaving them to take the highly publicized heat, alone, for so long. He should have come forward along time ago.

    Then again, is he trying to be a martyr for these two by just claiming to have directed the hits? The time between the incident and all of this coming out is pretty protracted.
