Referee Punches Player…Runs For His Life

Being a referee in soccer is not exactly a safe line of work.  One mistake and you may very well find yourself running for your life.  This referee from the Chilean second division learned that the hard way.  So what was his mistake?  Punching a player in the face.

Upon seeing their fallen teammate, several of the players rushed to his defense, stalking the referee before chasing him around the field.  Unfortunately, they were much too slow to catch him and exact any sort of revenge.  I guess their lack of speed explains why they are stuck playing in the second division.

With all due respect to the ref, it looks as though he barely touches the player, but we all know how good these soccer sissies can be at diving.
