Its a pretty darn safe assumption and common sense if you read the quote from the district: “This action has had a immediate and dramatic impact on the Farmington boys hockey team and the entire Farmington community."
Now had they only cared about the flipping off they would have listed the reason for his suspension as using obscene gestures or the like. No they say that the action had an immediate and dramatic impact of the team and the community. So your telling me flipping the bird is an immediate and dramatic impact to an entire team but also a whole community. Thats BS. The only thing that impacted the team was the goal against himself. Now shooting the puck in your own net, while very stupid, is in no ways against the rules of hockey. Show me a rule where it says he cant? So if he does something in the game that is not against the rules of said game how can he then be disciplined for that action? That is the injustice.
You keep saying "you're telling me" as if I've actually said those things. I haven't.
If you really need me to explain to you why a high school hockey player putting the puck in his own net and flipping off his coaches during a game is something that should be punished by the school, then this really is a pointless conversation.
