In the video below a referee in Russia attacks some kid and starts kicking his ass after a youth soccer game.  We’ve all seen parents  go ape shit during youth sporting events, but I can’t remember seeing a ref go crazy.  Maybe he’s doing it for all the world’s sports officials who have gotten abuse from a player and just had to eat crow.  Or maybe he’s just a freakin’ deranged lunatic.  Either way the ref is now banned for life.  Here’s the player’s post fight reaction and video:

Reuters: “The ref blew the final whistle and I started walking to our bench, when suddenly someone came from behind, pushed me to the ground and began kicking and punching me,” the 18-year-old Amkar player told reporters. “Terek players then joined the attack. Someone grabbed me by the throat, another hit me… bloodying my face. “Thank God, my team mates came to the rescue. Special thanks to Vlasov from Terek. We had known each other from a youth academy in St Petersburg and he helped me escape.” Kadyrov said Krichmar had insulted him but the player denied the allegation. “We weren’t happy with the officiating, words had been exchanged but I had never said anything personal about him or his mother,” he said. “I know how sensitive Chechen people are.
