TORONTO (AP) — Newly released documents say Toronto Mayor Rob Ford once made players on a high school football team roll in goose droppings.

The scandal-plagued mayor was fired last year from a side-job as a volunteer coach at Don Bosco high school after he made disparaging remarks to a TV network about parents and their children.

The documents from Toronto's Catholic School Board come as Ford seeks re-election Oct. 27. His brother and campaign manager, Doug Ford, called the documents "fictitious rumors and allegations."

The documents also say he showed up intoxicated for practice just before a city championship two years ago.

Ford returned to work June 30 after a two-month rehab stint for drug and alcohol abuse.

The documents were released Thursday after a freedom of information request from Canadian media.
