It looks like former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy just became the worst “sports parent” after he was seen loudly berating the referees at his step son’s high school basketball game.

McCarthy was seen in a video sitting in the bleachers during his step son’s basketball game last week at Notre Dame Academy high school in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

But after his stepson’s team lost the playoffs by a single point to Pulaski High School, officials say that McCarthy followed the officials out of the gym and into the parking lot where he yelled at them and berated them, according to Fox 11, Green Bay.

School surveillance video does show what appears to be an animated McCarthy having words with a referee who waves the former NFL coach away.

Officials filed a complaint against McCarthy with the WIAA. “This parent chose to follow the officials and berate them, which is clearly unacceptable,” Janel Batten, Pulaski’s athletic director, said in a statement. “Some things were said, some language was used that we don’t want in our gym, unsportsmanlike language.”

“Have you ever seen a parent walk after an official like that?” Batten asked Fox 11.

Notre Dame Academy Athletic Director Steph Mathu also confirmed that the WIAA contacted him about the incident.

“We have been contacted by the WIAA regarding last night’s basketball game, and we are currently looking further into this situation,” Mathu said in a statement. “We will continue to stress the importance of sportsmanship and respect to our students, parents, fans, and community members.”

No further actions have yet taken place over the incident.

LeBron James Discovers that Michael Jordan is STILL the GOAT in the Public’s Eyes

…And it wasn’t even CLOSE.

LeBron James may be the media’s favorite liberal athlete, but in the public’s eye, Michael Jordan still takes GOAT status, and it isn’t even close. James has been racking up more achievements every season and for the last few years debate has raged over whether James has finally taken GOAT status (greatest of all time) away from Michael Jordon. But while sports reporters and NBA statisticians may bicker over the particulars, it appears that the public still considers LeBron James a pretender to the GOAT. As Business Insider noted: Supporters of Jordan pointed to Jordan’s six championships, his undefeated record in the NBA Finals, and his overall influence in taking the NBA’s popularity to a new level as reasons why he’s the best. Fans of James point to his longevity, his eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances, of which he won three, and his overall brilliance on the floor beyond scoring. James is also still at his peak and passing Jordan in several statistical achievements. But a new INSIDER poll finds that James is a big loser in this barnyard battle. The poll of 1,082 Americans found former Bulls star Michael Jordan earned 66 percent of the GOAT vote while James only saw 10.4 percent support for top status. Others who found small numbers of supporters included Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Stephen Curry. Jordan picked up support across all ages, not dipping below 54 percent in any age range. Granted respondents between the ages of 18-29 were more enthusiastic about James, then again many of those respondents weren’t around for Michael Jordan’s great career.

Murder Conviction for Former NFL Player Aaron Hernandez Reinstated

With its decision, the high court agreed with state prosecutors who said it was not fair to vacate Hernandez’ conviction.

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has reinstated the murder conviction of former NFL player Aaron Hernandez in a decision that Overturns decades of legal precedent. The state’s highest court ruled that the practice of vacating a criminal conviction if the defendant dies during the case is a nonsensical practice and that the doctrine will be ended in the Bay State, according to the Boston Globe. Hernandez was convicted of murder in 2015 and was in the process of appealing the conviction when he committed suicide in jail in 2017. His lawyers then filed for abatement ab initio to vacate the conviction because he died during the appeal. But the state Supreme Court ruled against vacating the conviction. “We conclude that the doctrine of abatement ab initio is outdated and no longer consonant with the circumstances of contemporary life, if, in fact, it ever was,” Justice Elspeth Cypher wrote. With its decision, the high court agreed with state prosecutors who said it was not fair to vacate Hernandez’ conviction. During his arguments before the court, Bristol District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III said, “The practice of wiping out a jury verdict like it never occurred is not fair or equitable. Just to snap your finger and have that go away because the defendant died — it’s not fair.” The former New England Patriots player committed suicide two days after he was acquitted in a second murder case concerning the deaths of two men which occurred in 2012.
