    Sounds like he certainly deserves it. I'd hate to get to the point where police stand around at games waiting to arrest kids, but...

    "It was clear from the tape that he planned to hurt the player from Coshocton, and you saw him look around to see where the officials were."

    During a dead ball, T.J. Helbling was flagrantly fouled by Malloy, taking an elbow to the mouth and damaging four of his teeth badly enough that he won't be able to finish the season. Helbling underwent oral surgery to straighten his lower teeth, which were jammed backward at a sharp angle, and to set his jaw which was broken in two places.

    Sounds like a perfect prospect for the D.C. United youth system.

    Bull sh!t. The next law suit that is going to be filed is against the schools for allowing such behavior to happen. The precedent has now been set and we are going to have greedy urchens coming out of the woodwork.

    180 days?!? WTF? Sure, 178 of them are suspended, but still a half a year's sentence seems a tad extreme.

    180 days is way too much. However can the kid get expelled?

    I freaking hope so. There's nothing that the school can do to that kid that's too harsh of a punishment.

    I saw the tape and he deserved every day he got, plus all additional penalties imposed (monetary compensation to the victim to compensate for all medical bills). The victim did not sue and all was result of the criminal action filed against the kid from Zanesville.

    His behavior has no place on a soccer pitch - or anywhere else. Unless you're a DC player for which all seems to be forgiven and forgotten by a gutless organization and a gutless league.

    i hear that ray hudson and bradley are fighting tooth and nail to get this kid. bradley needs someone to replace ABMOD and figures this guy will fit into his system well. hristo and dema think that this prospect can be one of their best pupils. i can't wait to see who wins this DC-NY bidding war.

    Yep, justice can be a b!tch. Some people get the death penalty for a murder. Then there's a guy who kills 48 women and gets life in prison without parole. Same comparison could be applied to the Zanesville kid and the Bulgarian Butcher.

    I just gotta say, this is maybe the best line I've read here all month.

    Normally I don't think the courts should get involved in what takes place on the playing field of any sport. But, ONN showed video of the incident, and I must admit that it was the most flagrant and malicious thing I've seen on a soccer pitch in years. It tops anything Kovalenko, Stoichkov, or half of the Mexican national team could ever have done.

    The kid throwing the elbow was actually playing for Albany Alexander H.S. (near Ohio University) and he had just turned 18 within the last week or so prior to the incident.

    Um, this was during a stoppage of play. That makes a huge difference. This kid deserves whatever he gets.

    So if your favorite player gets elbowed and injured during the run of play, nothing should be done.

    But if he gets inujured by an elbow during a stoppage, he should run for the hills?
