    Crazy Ukrainian Soccer Fan Attacks The Referee (Video)

    In America, football fans were busy celebrating their game’s officials over the weekend, as the NFL referees made their return to the field after missing the opening three weeks of the 2012 season due to a strike. In the Ukraine, on the other hand, it was a much different scene, as their football fans (you […]

    MMA Ref Knocks a Dude Out Following the Fight (Video)

    Anyone with half a brain knows that it is never a good idea to pick a fight with a mixed martial arts fighter.  Just ask the dude who got knocked out by former UFC fighter Roger Huerta during a brawl in the streets of Austin, Texas. As for mixed martial arts referees, they typically don’t […]

    76ers Coach Doug Collins’ Drops F-Bomb On Live TV (Video)

    After beating the Indiana Pacers by a score of 109-106 on Saturday, the Philadelphia 76ers moved one step closer to clinching the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.  It should have been a feel-good moment for the entire organization, but 76ers head coach Doug Collins didn’t seem all that impressed, as he unleashed an […]

    Rajon Rondo Throws The Ball At The Ref (Video)

    Today we were at TPS are celebrating “Family Day” – it’s an Ontario (Canada) thing.  As a result, we will be going light for the day, but we’ll still be taking the time to bring you some great clips from the weekend, like this one, which features a disgruntled Rajon Rondo throwing the ball at […]

  • Sumo Referee Gets KO’s (Video)

    Sumo Referee Gets KO’s (Video)

    Upon first glance, sumo wrestling doesn’t seem like a very dangerous sport.  However, it is quite amazing how quickly that perception will change after watching this referee (or “gyoji,” as he is referred to in Japanese) get flattened by a 300-plus pound wrestler. While attempting to avoid the two giants squaring off in the center […]

  • Joe Thornton Picks Henrik Sedin’s Nose (Video)

    Joe Thornton Picks Henrik Sedin’s Nose (Video)

    With only seven goals in 34 games this season, Joe Thornton’s hands have had a difficult time finding the back of the net.  That is probably because they have been spending too much time searching for Henrik Sedin’s nose. Thornton’s hands would find Sedin’s nose on Wednesday night, as the Sharks’ captain continued to poke […]

  • NHL Referee Chris Rooney Sticks His Gum On The Glass (Video)

    NHL Referee Chris Rooney Sticks His Gum On The Glass (Video)

    A 20 minute period can be a long time to chew a single piece of gum, especially when the game is being delayed by a bunch of penalties.  NHL referee Chris Rooney ran into that problem while officiating last night’s game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Los Angeles Kings.  But rather than simply […]

    Referee Stephen Walkom Lays A Big Hit On Kimmo Timonen (Video)

    There were plenty of hits being dished out during last night’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Philadelphia Flyers, as the teams delivered a total of 22 and 21 hits, respectively.  However, their combined 43 hits were largely overshadowed by the single check delivered by the officiating crew. That hit came late in the […]

  • Wild’s Cal Clutterbuck Punches A Referee (Video)

    Wild’s Cal Clutterbuck Punches A Referee (Video)

    One week ago I said that soccer, not hockey, may be the toughest sport to officiate.  After watching NHL linesman Darren Gibbs take a punch to the face from Cal Clutterbuck, I think I’d like to retract that statement. The incident occurred during a fight between the Wild’s Clutterbuck and the Vancouver Canucks’ Maxim Lapierre.  […]

    Soccer Player Punches Referee In The Face (Video)

    As tough as it may be having to break up a fight between two giants on skates, I still say that the toughest sport to officiate is soccer.  After all, soccer players tend to be loose canons at times, and you never really know what they are going to do.  One second they are rolling […]

    Let’s Watch Shonn Greene Run Over A Ref (Video)

    The New York Jets’ ground attack has been rather weak throughout the first five weeks of the 2011 season, as they have averaged well under 100 yards rushing per game.  This comes after finishing first in the league in rushing in 2009, and ranking fourth on the ground in 2010. They were looking to regain […]
