Tie Domi's Rink Rage
The article in the Sun says it all.
Former Leafs' tough guy Tie Domi was "like a beast" as he screamed obscenities at his 11-year-old son Max's peewee hockey coach at a North York arena last night.
Witnesses say Domi's profane tirade happened in front of a dozen stunned and scared young players, parents and fans.
An enraged Domi was apparently upset at Max's lack of ice time.
I'm not going to bash Domi in this entry, because that's just too easy. I'm going to put myself in his shoes. If my son James were 11, had forgotten his hockey gloves and didn't get enough ice time as a result, would I be upset enough to leave the stands and confront the coach leaving with "You're a fucking shitty coach. What the fuck do you think you're doing ... You're just playing two fucking lines"?
Of course not. I can't even imagine a situation of that nature that would get me yelling at James' hockey coach. It's peewee AAA and the players are pre-teens. There's no place for rink rage and there are no exceptions.
Tie Domi's rapid fall from grace has been startling, and I don't think it's complete. You've got to wonder what's next.
