Fireworks: Frustrated hockey coach tells reporter 'f*** you'

BY Brett Smiley • October 23, 2014

Emotion got the better of Sudbury Wolves coach Paul Fixter after a 7-2 loss Wednesday to the Soo Greyhounds in the Ontario Hockey League.

From the moment reporter Lincoln Louttit began asking Fixter about the loss that dropped his team to an OHL-worst 1-10-0-0, it appeared that Fixter might combust.  

It kind of felt like a scene from MTV's "Boiling Points" where unknowing subjects got harassed, and viewers waited to see whether/when they would explode, only the reporters here were simply doing their jobs. About midway through the video (via BSO), Sault Star reporter Peter Ruicci took over the questioning, and that's when it turned into Frost/Nixon, plus an F-bomb.

Between this, Sean Payton (who yelled "BE QUIET" at a reporter) and Bill O'Brien of the NFL (also got a little hot during interview), it's been quite a week for tense coach-reporter exchanges.
