Angry hockey dad yells insult while holding infant, tells another parent he'll cave his face in [VIDEO]

With adult role models like this, the real victim here might be the baby girl.
Since it happened in Winnipeg, this story isn't exactly local. Then again, Minnesota is the State of Hockey, and Winnipeg is almost as close to the Twin Cities as some of the NoDak shenanigans we've covered.

So with that caveat out of the way, we bring you the story of Jason Boyd -- a hockey dad whose caught-on-tape behavior embodies most everything that's depressing and scary about parenting and youth sports. During a recent game featuring 15-year-old players, Boyd, an infant in his arms, called one of the players a "midget" so loudly that everybody in the rink could hear it. But the "midget" player's dad happened to be standing right next to Boyd, and when he took umbrage about the remark, Boyd went off the rails.

"Don't touch me, or I'm gonna cave your fucking glasses in, you got that?" Boyd said, the rage visible on his face.

Here's the footage, which tells the story better than we ever could:



The bad sportsmanship didn't end there. The "midget" Boyd referred to ended up breaking his arm during the game -- and Boyd allegedly cheered! From the CBC:
Later in the game, Kitson's son Emerson [aka "midget"] broke his arm. Kitson said Boyd's outbursts continued even after that.

"He celebrates again. It was hard to watch. These are kids on the ice," said Kitson...

Now, the Lord Selkirk Minor Hockey Association wants Boyd banned from all of its playoff games...

Boyd issued a statement on Friday, saying he wanted to "sincerely apologize to Chuck Kitson and his 15-year-old son" for his behavior at the game.

He said in the written statement, "I cannot and will not try to justify or excuse my actions. I had a significant lapse in judgment and for that I am truly sorry."

He said he accepted the league's suspension and supported their efforts to reduce parent confrontations at games.

He added he would make an in-person apology to Kitson and his son.

Boyd's family has said the outburst was in the heat of the moment and the ensuing online backlash is unfair.
With parents like Boyd making asses of themselves and the players, it's surprising more kids don't conclude their youth hockey careers in the angst-filled way that angry Farmington goalie did earlier this week.

I attended several of these state hockey tournament games over the weekend, and not only was this a totally inappropriate way for high school students to act, but the whole student fan base was very unsportsmanlike. Chanting rude remarks and holding inappropriate signs and yes, of course, the white hair. Will not attend another Red River hockey game ever. Very disrespectful.

The situation was unfortunate but I am glad to see that Mr.  Boyd does not attempt to excuse his behavior when apologizing. To me that allows a little bit of faith in his sincerity but of course everyone is welcome to their opinion.

I do want to say that I find it quite frustrating that people seem to antagonize aggressive people with video proof. This doesn't excuse the original conflict by any means, but it does not help the situation to further confront and exasperate the original perpetrator. I do understand how emotions can influence this though.

thank you... an excellent write up on this situation.  my son plays on the team with the boy who was injured, and my husband, who was at the game, could barely restrain himself as mr. boyd bullied these boys for 3 periods.  it gives me hope to know that we aren't the only ones who find this mans actions disgusting.

What is funny is he thought his actions were fine until the backlash from the internet hit!  If it wasn't filmed he would be justifying this behavior today!  Also for the Boyd family to call the online backlash unfair - pot calling the kettle black.  How fair was Boyd when calling the boy a midget.  Boyd is a bully!  Shame on him!
