Soccer Ref Knocks Out Player, Penalizes Him With Red Card [Video]
While things can get dicey from time to time in American sports, it rarely compares with shenanigans that take place in foreign soccer leagues. For instance, soccer referee Saad Al Fadhli was working a game in the Kuwait premiere league. When one team began intimidating him, he took matters into his own hands…actually, his own fist.
Check out that KO punch from Fadhli. He must have a boxing background. Can you imagine if Ed Hochuli ever threw an uppercut at a helmetless Jay Cutler? SCANDAL. MAYHEM. INFAMY. In the Kuwait premiere league, it’s just another soccer match.
Right when you think things have settled down, a player kicks the ball at Fadhli’s head. More red cards. More of the norm in a foreign soccer league.
