Almost sounds like an Onion story, doesn't it? It ain't, though.

Here's hoping Versus/NBC boots his ass out the door after this.

Not alot of details of what happened exactly. Im gonna guess its something to do with pushing kids too hard, as most coaches do. Just another whiny parent.

Thats just speculation though.

Nothing says class like an adult hitting a child.

Well at least he didn't hit him with his shoe.


Seriously though, it sounds pretty bad. I'm trying to reserve judgment until more details come out. It's hard to tell for sure if he was just angry at some kid who was screwing with his son and maybe grabbed him (still inappropriate, but not as egregious). Or if he really lost it and was screaming and shook the kid hard.

I don't like the lack of details in the story, so there's really no telling if Milbury actually assaulted someone or it's another case of a crazy parent seeing dollar signs.

In this day and age where a parent giving their child a swat on the rear end is considered child abuse, nothing's out of the question.

Definitely need more facts but...

Am I the only one who thinks "shaking" someone isn't exactly the worst crime out there?

My dad "shook" me several times as a kid (I deserved worse, probably :hehe: ) and I'm not terribly scarred by it. Again, I don't want to pass any judgement too soon but I can't help but think the parents of the kid saw it was Milbury, a guy on TV and former sports star, and thought they'd go for it.

If he did this on the ice at a game, I have to think the chances of someone filming it are pretty high, I wonder if any footage will come out?

Apparently there's video evidence, and for me to throw Milbury under the bus - I gotta see it...Until then I'm of the opinion it wasn't as bad as some are saying.

Way too many people out there today in our society of litigation who are looking to make a quick buck by sueing others.

I don't think a parent should vigorously shake their child, let alone someone else's child.

There is a difference between being stern and going over the top. This is over the top.

I am really shocked, if this proves to be true. Shame on him, and I hope he gets what's coming to him. :no:

We live in a country where throwing cake at someone is an arrestable offense under the term 'battery'. What do you expect? I'm not condoning anything, just saying...

If you put your hands on someone else's kids, I can't imagine what that person must be doing to their own kid or wife.
