WEST POINT, N.Y. -- The U.S. Military Academy removed a video clip of the football teams postgame locker-room celebration after its upset win over Temple and is investigating whether a team prayer violated the religious freedom of the players.West Point spokesman Francis J. DeMaro Jr. said Thursday that a third party made allegations the video violated the First Amendment rights of some of the cadets. DeMaro said the video, which was posted on social media, was removed pending the inquiry, which was first reported by Army Times.Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said head coach Jeff Monken crossed the line after the game last Friday night in Philadelphia when he asked a staff assistant to conduct a prayer that ended with Jesus.In this case, Coach Monken chose the wrong time, the wrong place and the wrong manner, Weinstein said Thursday. He cant tell anybody, put your hand on someone and lets pray. You cant do it, particularly when youre the head coach (of a public school).Weinstein said the video received 232,000 views and 2,000 Facebook shares. He said he started getting inundated with phone calls, texts and emails, including 44 from West Point graduates, 40 members of the academy faculty and staff, and six football players, prompting a call to West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Robert Caslen.Weinstein, who said the video was replaced by an edited version, said he was expecting Monken to offer an apology later Thursday.We assume that theres going to be an apology from the coach to the team, Weinstein said. We are assuming theres an admission there was a misstep.Weinstein said Army athletic director Boo Corrigan was putting procedures in place with all coaches at the academy that will prevent a similar situation from happening. Because of his relationship with Caslen, Weinstein said he does not plan to file a third-party inspector generals complaint on the issue.The MRFF, which claims 47,300 clients, questioned a practice by the Air Force Academy football team late last year after players began kneeling in prayer prior to games. The academy found it was within regulations. Dedryck Boyata Belgium Jersey . Vettel was 0.168 seconds faster than Red Bull teammate Mark Webber around the Suzuka circuit.
