Why did the Malvasi's open the door to the Mooney boys in the first place? If that were my family, I would have identified the Mooney boys and called 911 without opening the door and charge them all with trespassing. Maybe the Malvasi boy knew he would get in trouble for hitting Jackett so he wanted the boys to hit him back to justify his actions?

Michael -- Bad decision to hit Dominic.
Mooney boys -- Bad decision to fight at a private residence.
Vindicator -- Bad reputation to put an edited video on the internet.
Michael -- Get better we have sympathy for you.
Mooney boys -- Learn from this mistake, we know youre not bad kids and we love you.
Vindicator -- Find a new cover article, it will be pretty pathetic if Cardinal Mooney is tomorrows header.

Boys, keep your heads up because I know you are all reading this and feeling awful. It's a really tough time and people are only talking so much about you because you attend Cardinal Mooney.
We all love you and we want the best for you. I know you have all learned a lesson and will think twice before ever getting in a fight again. Wishing you the best of luck for all you pursue in the future.
We have your back. 14-0 State Champs & Track State Champs is how you will be remembered. Not as thugs. MUCH LOVE BOYS!!

This is really getting old! All of the boys need to grow up and they all deserve a lesson. If the Mooney boys deserve to go to jail for assault, then so does the Malvasi boy. As we all remember the Malvasi boy initiated the fight. People are being very biased because this is not the actual video clip. The actual clip shows Malvasi Sr hitting a boy that had not laid his hands on his son. These boys were dumb to go to a private residence to fight because they got caught. If it were my best friend that got hit, then I would go hit someone else too. There are a lot more important things going on in the news such as killings, but this is the major article headlined from the past two days. THATS MESSED UP!

I never said anything bad about the old man. The Malvasi family is very kind to me every time I am over their house. And it's also very sad that this video and article had to be published because those Mooney boys that got in the fight received out of school suspensions today. It wasn't even a fight that is affiliated to the school but since the article was in the paper it gives Cardinal Mooney a bad name. What a shame!

Scooge, you dont even know the whole story so don't pretend like you do because Michael Malvasi is one of my best friends and yes he has admitted to causing trouble with this group of Mooney guys before so don't call them thugs because if you call the Mooney boys thugs you have to agree with me that the boys from Canfield would be considered as thugs also. Thugs use guns and knives to get their work done and none of this was present. Thug fights usually end in a killing and this was just an old fashioned fight being resolved. I agree with you that it was very dumb to bring 10 boys to fight and I warned the Mooney boys before that it was a bad idea, but young boys are stubborn and they dont listen. Malvasi has been in his fair share of fights and he beat up a boy that was 4 years younger then him, but since his family has money he was able to get out of it.
I am so sick of people calling these boys "thugs" when you don't know the real story about it. I know these boys, YOU DONT!
Wonderingwhy: I agree with you 100 percent. VERY WELL SAID. Both schools are good and it doesn't matter where the kids attend and both parties were wrong. Scrooge you should take note of that before calling Mooney kids "thugs"

I agree Canfield student. They live in my neighborhood in Canfield as well. I attended Canfield High School and I know a lot about all of these boys. I like them all, but they were just really dumb to trespass, but I mean the Canfield boys did the same thing, but they just didn't get caught..
