Dirty Tackle

DTotD: Stomping on an opponent’s leg and then punching his teammate isn’t nice

Good sportsmanship is a vital part of any athletic competition. And this is the exact opposite of it. After tripping up his opponent, the player in blue (or teal?) appears to stomp on the downed player's leg while trying to make it look like he was hopping over him. Though the ref blew his whistle, the captain of the yellow side confronts the offender and gets laid out with a punch to the face. This started a scuffle between the two teams while the referee blew his whistle in futility.

As ugly as this incident was, at least we know what Joey Barton is up to while he's serving his Premier League suspension.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
