    Brazilian Soccer Referee Obliterates Player (Video)

    This weekend the NFL preseason got underway, giving us our first taste of hard-hitting gridiron action in six whole months. The great irony, however, is that the biggest “football” hit of the weekend didn’t occur on said gridiron. It occurred on a “pitch” in Brazil, and it was delivered—believe it or not—by a referee. That’s […]

    Remember the good old days when it was just soccer fans who were batsh*t insane? Back then, if somebody got viciously attacked on a soccer field, whether it be a player or a referee, you knew some lunatic fan was to blame. Today, that’s not the case. When you hear about some crazy attack at […]

    When it comes to soccer, it’s not only the fans, or even the players, who sometimes go a little loco. Every once in a while, the refs lose their minds, too. And no, I’m not just referring to blown calls. I’m talking about referees attacking players. It’s happened before, and now, in Russia, it’s happened […]

    NBA referees may not be quite as hilariously awful as the replacement referees who worked the first few weeks of the 2012 NFL season. However, over the course of an entire five-month basketball season they’ve given us just as many awkward moments. We’ve seen a guy accidentally keep a ball inbounds and give the Heat […]

    If you’re a hockey fan, then you probably heard a lot of pundits saying we should expect some pretty sloppy hockey to start the 2013 NHL season. They said that with the extended lockout and the six-day training camps, there was no way teams would start out as well-oiled machines. Of course, this line of […]

    I’m sure there are times this season when NBA players have wanted to whack a referee upside the head with the basketball. After all, the refs have done some pretty bizarre stuff. One guy used his foot to keep the ball inbounds for a Miami Heat player; another guy did a goofy dance just to […]

    Maybe Mark Cuban is right after all. I always thought the Mavericks owner was just a hotheaded loudmouth spouting ridiculous conspiracy theories about how refs fix NBA games for certain teams. But I now have to admit that, after seeing the following play, at the very least I can kind of see where the guy […]

    We all knew baseball umpires like to jazz up their punch-out calls. It’s a long-standing tradition. But did you know that some NBA refs are trying to add some pizzazz to their officiating as well? It’s true. Look no further than last night’s Pacers-Lakers game in Los Angeles. It was a tight, low-scoring affair that […]

    Remember when everyone was like sooo happy to get the real referees back, and they got standing ovations and hugs from the players and whatnot? Yeah, well, the honeymoon is officially over. And if by some chance you require visual proof of this, you’re in luck, because one rather angry Steelers fan gave it to […]

    Soccer referees are frequently the targets of nasty invectives and violent outbursts, both from players and fans. I mean, how many times have we seen a soccer official get run off the pitch by players, or suddenly attacked by a deranged fan…or angrily headbutted by a player? Answer: way too many times. Well, back in […]

    Just one week after being a part of the most controversial games in the history of the NFL, the Green Bay Packers once again found themselves being negatively impacted by poor officiating last Sunday. And this time, they couldn’t even blame it on the replacement refs. One play in particular got the players, coaches, and […]
