UPDATE: Diamond Bar, Diamond Ranch bracing for what could be heavy suspensions after brawl …

STORY: Chaos in the Hacienda League typically comes from the wacky scores that roll in on Friday nights and wreak havoc on the standings.
That isn’t the case this week, however. Schools officials from Diamond Bar and Diamond Ranch high schools, along with CIF-Southern Section officials, are trying to sort out the aftermath of a brawl that ended Friday’s game between the Brahmas and Panthers with just over three minutes remaining on the clock.

    Aram I don’t see how you can suspend multiple players in a high school game and not suspend the coaches. Their inability or their encouragement to let their teams lose control is directly on them. They fed this hatred for one-another making it much more than a game. I would hope the schools themselves would act first in exacting discipline and not just wait on CIF. We all Know CIF is just a political pawn as Simmons said in his interviews.

      Dranch should not have fell into this trap. Win the game and get out of there. They should be able to beat Rowland, but it depends on how many players get suspended. DBar and Mtown got into it in passing league..and everyone was talking about that. Now you see who lacks discipline and the the real brawlers of the SGV….

      • PatrickHT

        I never saw anything about the Mtown passing game, atleast nobody was really talking about it

        • GP AKA Green Machine

          It was in the summer…if was not a fight, but they were talking as if they were. Alot of people came on here saying that both DB and Mtown were ghetto etc… It’s funny to see DB have this issue carry over into a actual game.

          • PatrickHT

            Your right ! Its funny considering all the talk about how soft and weak DB supposedly was!

          • SGV_FOOTBALL

            So are you saying that Diamond Bar was being called weak? I haven’t read anything like that on the blogs…
            It also sounds like your trying to say Dbar isn’t weak anymore because of the brawl?

            If that’s the case now I know why fans were jumping the fence from the Dbar side. You must have graduated from Dbar as well.

          • Get a clue

            Those people jumping the fence were off duty Sheriffs that were called to duty. There were at least 4 off duty Sheriffs in the DBar stands on Friday.

          • reality

            Verrry in-ter-es-ting. And if they all were cops did they identify themselves? How were kids to know if they were friend or foe? Did they show badges or did they say ” Badges, we don’t need no stinkin badges”

          • Nomoredrama

            Thats hilarious! Lmao

          • Nomoredrama

            Hmmm, who called them? Lol

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            They still lost, so if you can’t beat them on the field, beat them in a fight. Along with the Noodles situation, DBar looks a mess. Everyone is picking them to be the team next year…But I don’t know…Is Dbar stacking it’s program with the wrong kind of kids. When I think of Dbar, I think of nice homes, great academics and smart people… This wasn’t so smart… and their image is trash right now…It does not matter because once Broadus, Bell, and Noodles graduate, no one will want to go there for football…They can’t win league, and next year, someone will snuff them out again.

          • Get a clue

            Really? I seem to remember you posting that you weren’t able to attend that passing league tournament. I was there and it was the entire team, coaches and parents from MTown talking all sorts of trash for about 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the passing game and for 1 minute into the game at which time DBar tore MTown apart and blew the and shut the MTown trash talkers up real quick. Come to think of it the MTown mob and DRanch scurge are very much alike.

  • inlandfootball

    What tape was Maine watching? Broadus clearly punched a DR player from behind. I was watching that game game on fox, even the announcers said a Diamond Bar assistant coach began taunting the DR side before the game started and they had to separated. Both teams should forfeit, but players throwing punches should get a 2 game minimum

    • reality

      It is clear from the excuses from both coaches that the fuel and blame game is still on. Rather than showing leadership and character and manning-up and accepting responsibility these childish coaches are pointing fingers at each other. One thing for sure these coaches are not men.

      • inlandfootball

        I agree, one game for the kids that left the bench, an extra game for those throwing punches and the coaches for both teams.

    • Bryan

      I was there too and diamond ranch coaches were heckling diamond bar, in fact one player on diamond ranch did something very disgusting in front of diamond bar people. It was horrible. Also, dranch staffing press box were shouting and harassing db parents.
      Another opinion I have is discipline does start at home so all you people that bash administrators, they can only do so much with kids. Just like a captain of a police department can not always control the actions of his department. I should know. A family affair.
      I have watched football in area for many years and will say I have never seen the aggression from player number 29 and 2 from diamond ranch that I witnessed. Don’t know where it came from, but heard the same kid fights at school all the time. If I had a player on the team, I probably would of wanted to stop number 29 from seriously injuring a player.

      • PatrickHT

        Brian, most of these poster either werent at the game or even saw the whole vid, they are going off what other DR bloggers and supporters are saying…They clearly dont except ANY responsibility for DR actions either!

        • inlandfootball

          You clearly have an issue with reading comprehension. As I said earlier I WATCHED THE GAME, I WATCHED THE PUNCH FROM BEHIND. I WATCHED UNTIL FOX SPORTS WEST TOOK IT OFF THE AIR. I personally don’t have a dog in the fight and don’t really care who gets suspended, fact of the matter is both programs need to be held accountable, but if the DB people think it’s only the DR people and vice a versa, both sides have a lot of growing up to do.

          • Stephen Carter

            #fact

      • Southeast follower

        Exactly what is be taught at home and now school tells you a lot about the players.

      • socalspeed

        Bryan, if you never witnessed aggression from a player like you saw from 29 and 2 on DR. Watch after #54 pushes the QB, Take a look at #21 on DB punch #29 in the back of the head!!! OH YEA THE PUNCH THAT STARTED THE WHOLE THING! let me guess he was trying to pull his players away from the fight. How about #24 punting the football after he gets tackeled.. Nice try!

        • Bryan

          I saw pushing on that not punching. I also feel with a situation that exploded so quickly, diamond bar coaches and administrators did a great job getting it under control. It really could of gotten ugly. I never saw a coach on either side getting into it, they were all doing what they needed to do to stop the problem from causing injury.
          Some of you grown men, I presume sitting behind a computer calling out men that give countless hours and time that hide behind a computer calling these coaches and admin names..take a look at yourself, your soul and ask yourself some real soul searching questions. Go out and do something productive.

        • Bryan

          Remove me from your list.

    • PatrickHT

      you werent at the game clearly!

  • Valley Athletics

    Rowland’s next 2 games might be against a jv team .

    • reality

      Right now Rowland would be a better representative for the Hacienda than DB or DR. They suit-up and play hard every Friday night though over matched and injury plagued.

      • Valley Athletics

        Same as Walnut .

        • OuttaYourMindTrib

          BOTH teams should not be allowed to participate in playoffs. Take the next group of teams instead. Sucks for the kids that didn’t leave the bench but you know what? They should have held their own players back if it was that important to them. Just about every law on the books is there because of a few bad apples. This case should be no different.

    • GP AKA Green Machine

      Lol, if that is the case…DBar will be out of the playoffs and Dranch will Still be #1 in league but has a dangerous final game verses Bonita

  • socalspeed

    This is not new for Diamond Bar as of late. Their JV team got in a fight over at Los Altos, 2 weeks ago. If you see the film from the game this past week, #54 pushed the QB and walked away. A 15 yard penalty at best. DB #21 throws a Haymaker to the back of the head of #29 on DR. That is what started the brawl. Not #54. Pushing and shoving happens all the time. Throwing punches doesnt. #21 was obviously upset that he hardly got thrown to and when he did, #29 broke up majority of the plays. Then after the skirmish, DB Parents running on the field, what a joke!!! Also after the scuffle, DR coach had team in control and on a knee while the DB sideline was out of control, kids spread out milling around. Including #21 and #24 acting out to their buddies how they were punching and swinging during the fight. I dont know much about DR or DB but from what i saw DB is a program lacking class and their head coach appears to have no control over his players and staff!

    • PatrickHT

      DR is always the one talking about DB bein soft, NOW they are whining because DB players were sticking up for their teamates…Give me a F’N break! Thats fine you are a DR supporter , but quick leaving out facts !

      • socalspeed

        I did leave out facts, I also forgot to mention before the game a DB coach standing on the sideline making comments to DR Players, DR #17 to be “FACTUAL”. That is when DR’s Defensive coordinator came over to tell him to quit talking to his players. The DB coach took offense and an arguement ensued. Those facts my friend are backed by the comentary of the fox sports reporters. What coach heckles other players?? Look PatrickHT if anybody has been biased over this whole event it has been you on these blogs. Its obvious you have a dog in the fight at DB and your biased rants over the past weekend shows such. You know as well as I do that a shove in footbal does not warant full blown punches and fighting. If you believe that than obviousely you are part of the problem at Diamond Bar. I will tell you this much, John Martin may not have had great success at Diamond Bar but this stuff never happened under his regime!! Let me guess you need more facts?

        • PatrickHT

          Right! and most of what happened took place over by the DB sideline, and thats exactly why everybody is assuming its ALL DB

        • Get a clue

          Maybe DR should fire Layton and hire Martin so that Martin can clean up your program? By the way, #17 was the one trash talking the DBar Assistant before the game and coach told him that he should learn to be more respectful. #17 was also the kid taunting the DBar sideline just moments prior to the fight. You should stop listening to his Mommy’s propaganda.

          • INTEGRITY

            YOU’RE RIGHT!! HIS MOMMY ALWAYS THINKS THAT HER #17 DOES NOTHING WRONG!! SHE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT WRONG HER KID DOES – SHE JUST LIKES TO LIVE ON “MY KID DOES NO WRONG AVENUE” IN DIAMOND BAR!

      • Joey C

        sticking up for someone is one thing, being a coward swinging at someone when they have their back to you is another. Who does that? not real smart when the other kid has a helmet. Suspend him for rest of the season. If that was my kid he was swinging at i’d but up in his and his dads face.

        • PatrickHT

          and that somehow makes you a mature adult i take it?

    • PatrickHT

      Furthermore, if you were at the game , your facts would prove otherwise, your injecting a biased opinion!

  • Southeast follower

    Lets see what HS administration does to the students and coaches. Most High School have policies that deal with fights. Doesn’t matter who starts it but if punches were thrown they should be suspended from Football Activity. My concern is that both schools have demonstrated a culture of bad sportsmanship. Remember this is educational environment not training kids to be gladiators. Coaches need to be fired and required to attend anger management classes if they demonstrated acts of aggression or failed to calm others. CIF needs to impose sanctions on both of these teams, who wants to play at these schools during the playoffs…really. Come on parents both schools and coaches are at fault, lets deal with punishment and teach these kids what consequences they will suffer from bad behavior, I am real concerned that this will be overlooked by the school Admin. I know that there good parents and student that don’t deserve the punishment that the team will suffer but it has to be done.

  • AramT

    Consider this: What if neither D-Bar or D-Ranch can field a team when they play Rowland? Then Rowland will have already played its last football game and turning in its pad.

    • GP AKA Green Machine

      Interesting….if you DB or DR..you bring up the JV’s if they are allowed. Won’t Dranch still be #1 in the hacienda even if the have a another L on their record?

      • TruTH

        Interesting point you bring up. If they do indeed have another L on their league record then they would be tied with Los Altos with one loss. Thus both would be co league champions

        • GP AKA Green Machine

          head to head goes to Dranch right? They would only have a loss to Rowland which is not in the playoff hunt..

    • Valley Athletics

      The video on Freddy’s blog shows that no one on D ranch sideline stormed the field . So all those players should be playing . Would like to see a video from diamond bars side to see if they stormed the field .

      • GP AKA Green Machine

        storming the field is just crossing the inbound chalk..one step across that line is the same as running 40 yards… Keep that in mind too…However can they suspend a entire team or entire coaching staff? That look awful and it was webcast too…Cif may have to make an example.. They had schools with gang infested neighborhoods in city section, and this hasn’t happened.
