Hockey Coach tells players ‘disrespect the anthem Get the F**k Out’
A video is going viral online of a hockey coach telling his players, “If there’s anybody here who is going to be disrespectful to either the American or the Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the f**k out!”
Hockey Coach Goes Viral For Telling His Players To ‘Get The F**k Out’ If They Don’t Respect The National Anthem
An unidentified hockey coach has gone viral on Twitter for a speech about the national anthem.
“We’re not women’s soccer. We’re not the NFL. If there’s anybody here who is going to be disrespectful to either the American or the Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the f**k out now because you’ll never see the ice in this arena. We don’t have that problem in hockey, we’re better than that but there was no sense in wasting anybody’s time if that sh*t was going to happen,” the unidentified coach told his players in the viral video posted on Twitter on Monday night by Wojciech Pawelczyk.
“Coaches have a responsibility to keep their team squared away,” he said. “We are fortunate to be in a place where we are a patriotic team and city.”
In recent days, sports fans have expressed their disgust at some of the unpatriotic behavior displayed by members of the U.S. Women’s National Team.
Co-captain Megan Rapinoe made headlines by taking a knee during the national anthem in solidarity with disgraced football player Colin Kaepernick.
After U.S. soccer implemented a rule requiring players to stand during the “Star-Spangled Banner,” Rapinoe protested by refusing to sing or place her hand over her heart.
During the World Cup, she spoke profanely about President Trump and refused to attend a White House celebration honoring the team’s achievement.
And moments after their championship, one of the players dropped the American flag on the ground.
Team member Kelley O’Hara raced in to save the flag from further desecration – earning her great praise on social media.
“I feel bad for the team,” Coach Krupinsky said. “Even Megan – she could’ve been one of America’s most beloved players.”
Instead, some of the squad chose to use their platform to make a political statement.
“It’s too bad,” the assistant coach said. “I don’t think everybody on that team is reflective of that. Pretty sad.”
Fortunately, hockey is one of the few sports that has not been infected by Trump Derangement Syndrome. No snowflakes, just ice.
“We’re the most patriotic sport they have out there,” the coach told his players in the locker room video.
Well, that and NASCAR.
The coach has received a number of accolades for his patriotic message to the guys, but there was one that was especially meaningful.
The comments come after national anthem protests swept across the NFL and more recently Megan Rapinoe refused to properly honor the national anthem for the women’s national soccer team.
This is why hockey coaches are awesome. There’s no fat on the bone with them. They just cut straight to the point, and it’s why I love the sport and the coaches so much.
I can’t get a read on the logo on this guy’s jacket, but I’m guessing he must be a coach at some level of junior hockey.
Otherwise, why would he say the Canadian and American anthem? It’s either that or he’s coaching a low level pro team.
Either way, that guy clearly loves America.
He’s also not the first hockey coach to say similar stuff. John Tortorella said he would bench players who didn’t properly honor the national anthem.
Again, hockey coaches couldn’t care less about your feelings and things of that matter.
