California Pop Warner program accused of Saints-style bounty program for big hits



In a stunning turn of events, before the New Orleans Saints' "Bountygate" scandal became national news, a youth football team in Southern California was already employing similar tactics, offering payment for big hits and injuries that knocked opposing players out of games.

As reported by the Orange County Register, the coaches of the 10 and 11-year-old Tustin Red Cobras Pop Warner squad offered cash payments to players who successfully knocked out specific players for teams from towns like Yorba Linda, Santa Margarita and San Bernadino. The practice was confirmed to the newspaper by Cobras assistant coach John Zanelli and three different players, all interviewed individually.

Incredibly, this isn't even the first set of allegations about a bounty program in California youth sports, with a San Francisco-area youth rugby program accused of a similar plan in May.

While the newspaper has moved forward on the allegations with determination, all other Red Cobras coaches and the Tustin league president denied the practice when confronted about it by the Register. One of the coaches went so far as to blame the allegations on sour grapes from parents who were forcing their children to lie; "It's amazing what disgruntled parents will put their kids through,"

Those denials fly in direct conflict with the comments of the parent of one Red Cobras player who "won the prize" following a big hit in a Cobras playoff game against Yorba Linda.


Full articled here.
