Nick Saban Yells at Child for Asking a Bad Question During Call-In Show

During last night’s Alabama football radio call-in show with head coach Nick Saban, Coach Saban took the opportunity to ridicule a small child for calling in and asking a bad question. “I don’t have time to entertain your ridiculous questions,” Saban told 8-year-old Tommy Chaire. “This game against Vanderbilt is more important than anything that has happened in your insignificant little life, and I would appreciate you showing a bit more respect.”

The question Tommy asked that prompted this response seemed to be an innocent one: “Coach Saban, how many touchdowns do you think we will score this week?” But the coach did not seem to take it so innocently. “Do you think it’s just easy to score touchdowns? Have you ever watched a football game in your damn life?”

The call-in show usually lasts an hour, but Saban walked off the set of the show after just 20 minutes because he was so aggravated by the child’s question. Saban then drove to Tommy’s parent’s house to continue to berate the boy in person. “Sorry, but we’re trying to beat Vanderbilt here,” Saban told Tommy’s mom and dad. “And if we win by anything less than 50 points than it will be your child’s fault.”
