    I notice you linked only the Cullman side of things. Here's the Jasper paper. Our article is more informative and better written.

    Having been a former HS coach, this is inexcusable. These men are supposed to be an example to the young men they coach and the community they serve. This is what happens when football gets more important than life itself. This is only going to get worse unless someone gets a grip on this problem. Flame away if you want but this has been going on for 30-40 years. This is what happens when you have men who think they are bigger than the game and treat the game like every game is a National Championship. I told my wife the other night I miss the competition, the teaching aspect of coaching and relationships with the kids, but I do not miss having to deal with delusional parents who think their child can do no wrong and dealing with pompous opponents who are out of control.

    Were the players involved? I'm getting mixed reports.

    Whatever coaches were involved should be let go immediately.

    This is deplorable and I'm sure will be broadcast all over the country and give the state a huge blackeye (no pun intended).
    The district (or whoever makes the call) needs to act swiftly and powerfully and perhaps suspend the programs for the entire season or at least until a full review of the altercation has been made.

    Time for heads to roll. No excuses for any of this. Right after they are fired, criminal charges should be filed.

    I don't know anyone in their right mind that would flame what you said, so very well I might add.

    I hope whoever was involved coach wise is FIRED. There is no excuse for this crap, coaches are supposed to be the peace makers, and when they are not they deserve to be looking for another job.

    I have seen two videos and just out luck it seems the person with the oldest cell phone was filming it. Steve Savarese will have a field day with this one.

    Rumor I hear is after Cullman won they ran onto the field taunting and somehow the Cullman coach at Walker's Head Coach got into it. Heard there was a supposed sucker punch in plain view as well so who knows? I wouldn't take that as gospel either.

They were ready to kill the refs after we won 21-14, any tackle near the sidelines and you could hear them going nuts about late hits, if their WR didn't catch the ball it had to be Pass Interference, etc. We thought we might have to fight our way out of there but they were busy griping at the refs.

    I will admit though they got better with their last successful coach (Andy Keith).

    Preach on Rev!!! I agree fully!

    I coached at Talladega for baseball the past two years and we had a problem against our rival Munford in a game that got ugly after we beat them with the 10 run rule after the 5th inning. Words were going on the whole game and the umps never said a word and it only got worse after that. So we go to shake hands after the game on the field and of course MORE words come flying. While I didn't blame my players for some of the things they said after the way they were treated we still had to play peace maker as the coaches. In my opinion you ALWAYS have to play the peace maker no matter what. It all should be on video and let the AHSAA and the schools handle any kid that throws a punch, but as a coach I would have to make myself quit if I threw a punch period on the field, and any coach that DOES throw a punch IMHO should be fired and never allowed to coach in this state again. There is just no sense for it.

    The only way I could see throwing a punch is if a players life is in immediate danger (like a gun man on the field or something like that).

    Followed this last night as it broke. here's some amateur and sketchy video of the nonsense.

    "I didn't come to Alabama to win 10 games a year and be a contender. I came here to win championships. Conference championships and national championships. I love it here because that's just not what I want, but what this fanbase expects."

    I have no idea what happened but it's easy to say you shouldn't throw a punch and I agree, but emotions can get the best of us sometimes and if someone sucker punches you do you really know how you would react? I hope there is a better video so authorities can sort this out no matter who is at fault. I hate to see things like this because our kids need to be taught better.
