We’re not sure why this isn’t already an Olympic Sport!
Really? A javelin? Who thinks that shoving a sharp metal pole up someone else’s behind will bring you closer as teammates?
Apparently four soccer players at La Puente High School in Southern California who have now been arrested on hazing allegations, while their coach placed on paid administrative leave because there are indications he knew and/or encouraged the acts. The school district is also being sued based on victims claims that the administration attempted to cover up the incident.
Here’s more from Fox News:
Three of the alleged victims have hired an attorney and are planning to sue the school district. Another victim may join the suit. Two of them claim they were sodomized inside the soccer storage room as part of a hazing ritual after making the varsity team. A third victim says he was able to fend off the attackers.
“A lawsuit is the only way to get any leverage over the school district and to force it change its ways,” said attorney Brian Claypool, who also represents dozens of parents in the Miramonte Elementary School case, where a teacher is accused of molesting students.
Claypool claimed two 14-year-old boys were “jumped” and then penetrated with a “javelin-like object” while a third, 15, “fought for his life” and managed to grab the pole away from his attackers, the LA Times said. The alleged abuse happened last year. At least one student sought medical attention for his injuries, the newspaper said.
It’s not unusual for fans of almost any sport to throw things onto the field when they’re unhappy with the game. Batteries, coins, water bottles . . . you name it, someone had probably thrown it in anger. Then there’s the fans of the Arab Football Champions league.
Here’s more from the YouTube description:
Wednesday night’s AFC Champions League clash between Iranian side Sepahan and Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ahli produced no goals, but there was certainly some explosive action at the Foolad Shahr Stadium. The quarterfinal first leg was temporarily interrupted when the referee ran to one of the sidelines to inspect debris thrown on the field by fans. Sepahan midfielder Adel Kolahkaj picked up a small, black object and tossed it away from the pitch. Turns out that object was some kind of mini grenade or firecracker, which exploded upon landing, causing the referee and his assistant to run for their lives.No one was hurt in the incident, and the game was cancelled initially but players came back on field after security inspection was made.The police officials are still investigating this matter.
