Top 5 Coaching Meltdowns
The recent Schwartz vs Harbaugh MMA Fight..er, I mean coaches brawl isn't the only instance of coaching meltdowns. Actually it compares kind of mild compared to some that I've discovered recently. Sit back, relax and enjoy my top 5 coaching meltdowns most of which you'll find quite amusing.
First up: Huskies coach Jim Calhoun. Soon after a reporter brings up a “Mo' Money” question he begins with mild threats like:”Shut up” and “lets go outside” then it gets good. I think “Get some facts and then come and see me” is gonna be my new mantra.
Possibly the best post game rant by a coach ever. Coach Hal McRae of the Kansas City Royals goes nuts during a post game conference in 1993 after being asked a stupid question. Microphones fly, tape recorders fly and telephones fly. I'm starting to think the coach has a problem with technology. Oh well, it's great stuff.
Jim Playfair, coach of the Abbotsford Heat, disagrees with a ref's call on the ice and well….sadly, hockey sticks pay the ultimate price. WARNING: Hockey sticks are hurt during the filming of this video!
One of my favorite coaching meltdowns. Minor league Braves Manager Phil Wellman goes nuts and draws super huge strike zones in the dirt,throws bases and even launches a grenade at the home plate Ump. Well, it's a rosin bag, but still he looks like he's having a good time playing army man.
South Georgia Peanuts manager Wally Backman is never short on words and I don't mean regular every day vernacular. I speak of course about the use of the “F” word. BE WARNED: Lots of usage of the “F” word loudly and abundantly. You rock Wally.
