Deadspin was among the first news sites to post the clip, which must be seen to be believed. Before an Oct. 6 game, the assistant coach screamed to his players on the Bantam A. Black U14 hockey team of the Littleton (Colorado) Hockey Association:
“I want to see you sticking your hands up these guys’ asses and working ’em like a f******* puppet!”
He later yelled about the opposing team, “I want to see you beat up Green Mountain. F*** Green Mountain! F*** their coaches! F*** their wives! F*** their friends!”
Told by those in the room he could be heard elsewhere, the coach responded, “I don’t care.”

The league was informed of the coach’s speech through a complaint from USA Hockey, the Denver Post reported.
“This unfortunate event is not a representation of our association and out of respect for the families and the sport we are diligently working to correct the situation,” league president George Stieduhar said in a statement to the CBS affiliate in Denver.
The coach issued an apology to both teams, according to the station.
