Watch: Ex-Packers HC Mike McCarthy Goes Off On High School Referee | Follows Them Out Of Gym| Complaint Has Been Filed, What’s Next

Written by TrevStone

This is the greatest thing ever to type. I hate Mike McCarthy. I cannot stand him and his arrogance, and well… Last night, I was at a high school basketball game, and well the referee’s stunk, I was up in the crowd booing, and yelling.

But I couldn’t imagine being so mad that after the game I followed the referees out of the gym…. No, I wasn’t at this game.

I hope all those referees made a joke about McCarthy being fired from his position as the Packers head coach.

According to Fox 11 Green Bay:

 Mike McCarthy was involved in an incident after his stepson’s basketball game last night. McCarthy’s son, who attends and plays basketball for Notre Dame Academy, lost last night to Pulaski High School by one point as their season ended with the loss.

McCarthy, who’s a regular fixture at the games, went after the referees after the loss and was seen shouting and chasing the referees out of the gym.

The referees had to be escorted out of the gym by Pulaski officials to get away from McCarthy.

Pulaski Athletic Director Janel Batten said:“This parent [McCarthy] chose to follow the officials and berate them, which is clearly unacceptable.”

“Some things were said, some language was used that we don’t want in our gym, unsportsmanlike language.” 

A formal complaint has now been filed to the WIAA (Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association) to inquire further about the incident.
