“Make no mistake about it, Harold Dawson and Louden Downey are sitting before you in judgement today because they did their job”
I am not going to pretend there is a baseball angle here, but there is one helluva “Few Good Men” angle here, so I am going with it.
Two High School Football players in Texas blindsided a referee last week. If you never saw the video, you can find it here. It takes all of 2 seconds to realize it was intentional. Shocking. Appalling. Reckless.
Now the players in question say it was a Code Red – they were ordered to hit the ref! Okay, they never said Code Red, but they did say the team assistant was mad over a series of calls (bad calls in a sporting event??) and several alleged racial slurs, and ordered them to take revenge. The refs attorney unequivocally denies any racial slurs.
Did the kids do what they were ordered to? Should they have ignored the coach? Did they have a choice? Do the alledged racial slurs make a difference? Discuss
