A Ref's job

Post by catsrback76 » Mon Jul 08, 2013 12:06 am

Well, it just got tougher to be a ref these days. In Brazil, soccer fans stormed the field, killed, quartered, and decaptitated a ref, placing his head on a stake at mid field!

Wow, I thought I took the game too seriously!

The refs infraction? Killing one of the players with a knife!

Lets keep it under control this year....ok!? :) WOW

That was a bizarre story. Ref calls a foul, players assaults ref, ref stabs player, player dies on the way to the hospital, fans kill and mutilate ref. :shock:

Don't let this distract you from the fact that the griz blew a 22-0 lead.

over the top disgusting - Brazil can be a crazy violent place

A soccer ref was killed here in Utah last month by a 17 year old who didn't like getting a yellow card
