DTotD: Ref attack in Croatia

Dirty Tackle

We all know that the job of a referee is a thankless one. We also know that sometimes it's one that attracts violent outbursts from people who like to kick things. This is an example of both.

Near the end of a match between Rudar Siveric and Sabunjar in Croatia, the referee's decision to deny a penalty in the box caused several Rudar players to snap and go after the official with furiously flailing limbs. The ref remained calm even as the footballers tried to hurt him, probably because they were comically awful at landing punches. And once everyone eased up, it was time for the referee to hand out his revenge in the form of red cards.

The action in the video clip is actually a bit out of order, so the uncalled penalty is actually shown after the fight. I guess Croatian television knows what people like to see more.
