Player Hits Fan Over Head With Stick Sending Him to Hospital



In the Belgian Division 2 league, a game between Olympia Heist and HYC turned ugly when one of HYC's players turned violent towards a fan. The referee had just called penalties on both teams, and the play was dead while things were being sorted out. During that time, you can see the player from HYC hear something said by the fan, turn around, and use his stick as a weapon.

Team Known for Doing Stupid Things



Other teams in the league are now refusing to play HYC because of their bad rap for incidents like this. The team's executive had the following response to the incident, condemning it.

"This is absolutely not acceptable, we cannot condone this in any way," said HYC Chair Frank Van Reeth. "We as a club therefore want to offer our sincere apologies to the supporter involved."

"The player who dealt the blow will soon be called to the carpet. Meanwhile, he himself has already sent a letter of apology to the federation to express his regret. He allegedly succumbed to the tirade of insults from some supporters and is now incredibly sorry for it. The fact remains, of course, that this should never have happened."

We will see exactly how many games this player gets, and if the team decides to take any action of their own to punish him.
