    Re: Postgame Brawl Overshadows Last-Minute Cullman Comeback vs. Walker

    Holladay was in the middle of a skirmish with Cullman defensive coordinator Matt Hopper following the Vikings’ emotional 13-10 loss at Gambrell Ki-Ro Field. After punches were thrown, Holladay was tackled to the ground by a Walker assistant coach while Hopper was restrained by several police officers.

    A Cullman school board official told The Cullman Times that no discplinary action is planned concerning Cullman coaches or football players after Friday night’s post-game incident.

    What MegaVars said was tongue-in-cheek...He grew up in Walker County also...so did I. My brother was on the Walker coaching staff up until this year...glad he wasn't there Friday night to be involved...

    I know he was. I edited it and put a smiley in it. I was a Carbon Hill Graduate in 67.

    Wow, anyone that is proud of that needs to have their head checked. Bye bye Walker coach, he probably just ruined his coaching career and rightfully so. Now I see how the Cullman DC got his face screwed up so badly, he was kicked by quite a few players. If anyone from Walker thinks this is o.k. there is no way I would take a football team to play them.

    You have better eyes than me, no way I could tell from that video if anyone kicked him. I did see the punch to the face...

    You can't really see it, but as the players rush him after he hits the ground it's kinda obvious. Did you see the pics of his face? It didn't get that way by those few wild punches. Dude was kicked by somebody.

    i dunno. I didn't see an obvious kick or anything like a strike from a player. The Walker coach, though, definitely was the aggressor.

    Do you really believe the Cullman coach went over to "speak" to him? I'm not defending the Walker coach's actions and I believe he should be fired, but the Cullman DC instigated the whole thing and should be fired as well.

    The video also shows a Cullman player run and tackle a Walker player. He should be identified and suspended.

    That can't be...
    “Our superintendent, Dr. (Doreen) Griffeth was at the game. I talked to her and I understand there is no need to reprimand our coaches and players, that they acted with class and dignity during the situation,” said Suzanne Harbin, president of the Cullman Board of Education.
    Shortly after the Bearcats rushed the field to celebrate their victory, a full-on brawl broke out.

    It does look like the Cullman DC mouth wrote a check that his backside couldn't cash..

    I don't think he "instigated" anything. I believe it is common courtesy to shake hands after a game am I right? When he saw the Walker coach didn't have enough class to do that and was obviously headed to the locker room he should have just left him alone however. That was his mistake. To fire a man for being attacked would be an injustice IMHO. I'm not saying that because I live in Cullman. I'm not from here originally, didn't go to the school and don't know anyone involved. My hope is the ASHAA does the right thing because the kids deserve better.
