OHL Coach Paul Fixster Apologizes For Going All Berserk Canadian Dad On Reporter
Don't shoot the messenger. Also, don't stab, choke, maim, or generally berate him. Apparently Sudbury Wolves coach Paul Fixster never got that memo. (Chances are the messenger who was carrying it chickened out.)
"What's the fucking question? Fuck you," he said angrily, with a tinge of that polite Canadian affect that makes even their arguments sound cordial. "Don't fucking talk to me like that."
He's since apologized.
[CBC] "I lost my cool," said Fixter. "You know, for that I apologized publicly. It wasn't my finest moment ... that's for sure. I'm an emotional person, I'm passionate. I care about the team, I care about our players, and [you] can't crucify me for that."
Fixter said his players are feeling beat up about this losing streak, and that's made him defensive.
"I didn't appreciate some of the things that were being said and written [about the team]. So I had a little bit of an explosion, and for that I'm sorry that it was caught on camera."
In fairness, sometimes you just gotta ask the question instead of throwing statements out there about how the team played, in the hopes an angry hockey coach will respond with anything other than "Fuck you."
