Coach Sues 14 Year Old Over Game Winning Celebration

It’s a sad day I think when a coach seems fit to sue a 14 year old for celebrating after his game winning run.

The beauty of kids and sports is the pure innocence and playing for the love of the game. So when kids win games, especially big ones, they go nuts!  It’s a very common thing. Along comes Alan Beck, a California coach who is suing a former player for throwing his helmet after scoring the winning run and cut the coaches Achilles tendon.  It was an obvious accident and I personally couldn’t imagine suing the kid and his family.

Becks attorney issued the following statement,

He is a good guy who was volunteering his time and now he’s in a wheelchair. Who’s the victim here?  This wasn’t part of the game. To have someone throw a helmet in that manner, you just don’t do that – Attorney Gene Goldman

Actually Mr Goldman, it happens all the time and there are many YouTube video’s showing the raucous celebrations by thousands of kids.  Just because Coach Beck wasn’t getting paid doesn’t mean anyone should be held liable, in my opinion.  If you want to sue, sue the league. Oh wait, he’s suing them too.

I think it’s a total crock and hope he looses but I am more curious to know what you think. I am I right in my thought process or did I miss something here?

Sound off!
