Hockey Coach Tells Team “We’re Not Women’s Soccer, We’re Not The NFL”, Don’t Disrespect National Anthem!


Certain women’s soccer and NFL players (cough, Kapernick…cough, Rapinoe…) are a disgrace to America as they refuse to honor our great nation and set a terrible example for the next generation of American sports players.

But, Hockey Coach John Krupinsky is not having any of it from his team players!

In a now-viral video, Krupinsky told his team, “We’re not women’s soccer. We’re not the NFL. If there’s anybody here that’s going to be disrespectful to either the American or the Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the f— out now because you’ll never see the ice in this arena!”

Since the Twitter account that posted the original clip has now been suspended (shocker), here’s the clip on Youtube that user Richard Roberts thankfully uploaded:

In response to the viral video of the patriotic soccer coach, fellow proud Americans stood up in praise for Krupinsky and the standards he is holding his players to.

Check out the reply tweets to Krupinsky's message on Twitter:


Todd Starnes of Fox News gave some background as to what prompted Coach Krupinsky to deliver the message to his hockey team:

It was the first day of camp for the Hat Tricks, the new minor league hockey team in Danbury, Connecticut. And assistant coach John Krupinsky had something on his mind.

Over the past few years, Coach Krupinsky has seen professional football players and women’s soccer players disrespect America by taking a knee during the national anthem.

He  wanted to make sure the young hockey players understood that sort of  unpatriotic nonsense would not be permitted on the Hat Tricks.

“We’re not women’s soccer,” he told the team in a locker room heart-to-heart. “We’re not the NFL.”

And then, Coach Krupinsky laid down the law.

“If there’s anybody here who is going to be disrespectful to either  the American or the Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the  f**k out now because you’ll never see the ice in this arena,” he said.  “We don’t have that problem in hockey. We’re better than that, but there  was no sense in wasting anybody’s time if that sh*t was going to  happen.”

That’s what we call a Make America Great Again Truth Bomb – on ice.

The  coach’s remarks, made a few weeks ago, were captured on video and  shared on Facebook. By last count, it’s been seen by more than 6 million  people – and counting.

“I thought it would get shared around town  – maybe – but I never expected 6.5 million people,” he said during an  interview on "The Todd Starnes Radio Show."

The coach, who works  for the Danbury Police Department, said his comments were about basic  stuff you should be doing every day as an American citizen.

“Coaches have a responsibility to keep their team squared away,” he  said. “We are fortunate to be in a place where we are a patriotic team  and city.”

In recent days, sports fans have expressed their disgust at some of the unpatriotic behavior displayed by members of the U.S. Women’s National Team.

Co-captain  Megan Rapinoe made headlines by taking a knee during the national  anthem in solidarity with disgraced football player Colin Kaepernick.

Are you with Coach Krupinsky?

Do you think THIS is the message we should be sending to young atheletes in all sports across America?
