Video: Ref throws youth hockey player to ice in ugly match marred by fights

I’ve tried a million different ways to eloquently describe the following clip, but nothing sounds right. So here it is bluntly: players fight, refs fight, and coaches fight. Everyone at this youth hockey match comes out looking like crap, including the parents yelling obscenities.

According to Metro News, the 12-year-old kid slung to the ice suffered a broken wrist – so there’s that, too. It’s the ugly side of youth athletics. The video has a ton of cussing from the stands, so let’s call this oneĀ NSFW.
