He said the coaches were in on the whole thing, this was juniors in the 80s where you could get away with all kinds of crap that would land you in jail today.
It's kind of a shame that happened really, I wonder how it would have turned out for him if he wasn't always getting roughed up. Last I heard he was working a regular 9-to-5 for the state government.
Balancing the budget is hard work.
