Junior players told: ‘F*** their wives’
AN assistant coach was kicked off a youth hockey team in America after giving a deranged, sexually charged pep talk to his team, telling the teens: "F*** their coaches! F*** their wives! F*** their friends!"
The unidentified assistant coach for the Bantam A. Black hockey team in Colorado was let go on Friday by the Littleton Hockey Association after the profanity-laced pregame pep talk on October 6 surfaced on social media last week, Denver7 reports.
"I want to see you sticking your hands up these guys a**** and workin' them like a f***** puppet," the coach screamed. "I want you to control these motherf****** like they ain't been controlled in their life!"
The coach then calmed down momentarily, telling the players he intended to watch warm-ups prior to the game against Green Mountain Fall before getting back into the pep talk, which he recognised was quickly coming unglued.
"And then you're going to beat 'em three-none!" the coach continued. "God dammit, I have no idea where I'm headed with this, but I want to see you beat up Green Mountain! F*** Green Mountain! F*** their coaches! F*** their wives! F*** their friends!"

A player off-camera can then be heard telling the coach "they can hear us," as others in the room urge the charged-up coach to settle down.
"I don't care about none of them," the coach continued. "We're going to beat 'em up so bad ... Let's go!"
In an email sent to parents, the director of hockey operations for the Littleton Hockey Association apologised for the "inappropriate language" heard on the video and confirmed that the assistant coach had been immediately banned from the team and would not be welcomed back to the league.
"He was very embarrassed and issued a letter of apology to the opposing team and apologised to his team," Brian TenEyck told parents in the email, according to Deadspin.
"It was not until I witnessed the video did the severity of the situation become apparent. The coach has been removed from the staff and will not be returning to LHA this season, nor in the future. Littleton Hockey does not condone this type of behaviour."
