Dad Goes Nuts After Son Loses Wrestling Match, Attacks Opposing Coach

Thanks dad! Nothing says you really love me (and don’t care just about winning and losing) like you attacking the opposing coach after a match.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: adults are ruining youth sports/

A Warren County man, furious that his son lost a youth league wrestling match, stomped onto the mat and tackled a coach Saturday during a tournament in Belvidere, police and witnesses said.  Robert Spezza, 40, of Great Meadows in Liberty Township, faces charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and disorderly conduct. He was released on $7,500 bail, Belvidere Police Chief Kent Sweigert said.

Spezza allegedly knocked down Dan Shamsudin, a Parsippany Police Athletic League wrestling coach, immediately following a match between Parsippany and Hackettstown.  Several witnesses said the 2 p.m. attack sparked chaos inside Belvidere High School, where wrestling matches were being held for a tri-meet involving teams from Belvidere, Parsippany and Hackettstown. Parents spilled onto the floor to pull Spezza off the 28-year-old Shamsudin, they said, and the tense atmosphere threatened to transform the attack into an all-out brawl.

According to the witnesses, Spezza also knocked over an 11-year-old Parsippany boy, Chris Gentile, a member of the Parsippany wrestling team who had been sitting out because of a broken wrist. “He just went ballistic,” Kathy Gentile, the boy’s mother, said of Spezza. “It took a while to break it up.”
