You've got to do better.
You're teaching and molding young people.
You need to set the right example.
Be a role model for good sportsmanship.
You're not supposed to throw punches and slug it out after a close, emotional game.
On the opening night of Alabama's High School Football season, we had a thrilling game between Cullman and Walker marred by a fight among the coaches.
The videotape shows the bloody brawl as teenage players moved off the field.
It's not a good example for those kids who just played their hearts out.
In fact, it's a prime example of poor sportsmanship.
The Alabama High School Athletic Association has penalized both schools and coaches,
coming down hard on these school and these coaches who couldn't control their own emotions-- coaches who now must be turned into an example of the consequences that come with poor sportsmanship.
