New documents show that Rob Ford’s football coaching was as out of control as his mayoring

Earlier this morning, the Star and the Globe both published stories with new details about Rob Ford’s time as volunteer coach for the Don Bosco Eagles, a football team at an Etobicoke Catholic high school. Among the revelations: Ford organized an unauthorized practice session, swore at and threatened a teacher, showed up intoxicated to a football practice before the Metro Bowl and forced players to roll in what the papers demurely refer to as “goose scat.” (That last thing was evidently punishment for what Ford considered subpar performance during a game.) The information comes from documents reluctantly released by the Toronto Catholic District School Board in response to freedom of information requests.
