We’ve all been there. You are playing the best god damn game of your life when the referee suddenly decides he doesn’t like your face. Before you know it, you are being called up for everything including being too popular and you find yourself being sent off.
Pity then, Italian amateur soccer player, Andrea Biondi. Mr Biondi is a very keen soccer player and he and his team Albereta 72, were in a nail biting play off against rivals Sancat, the score was 2 – 2.
Obviously the referee was a Sancat fan, as he took offense to everything Mr Biondi said and did. The ref seemed to particularly pick on Mr Biondi after the player called him a ‘Stupid, fucking shit head.’ It wasn’t long after that that poor, innocent Mr Biondi was handed a red card and sent off.
Understandably upset by this turn of events Mr Biondi didn’t take the decision lightly and having left the pitch, he returned to have a quiet word or two with the ref. It was then, after putting a friendly arm around the official’s neck, that he tried to force the whistle down the surprised man’s throat.
It took several players to break the resulting fight up and several more to remove Mr Biondi from the pitch, who continued to hurl threats and insults. Apparently, there are other places Mr Biondi would have liked to shove the ref’s whistle.
