An amateur soccer match in Brazil erupted in violence* recently during the final of the Copa Sul dos Campeões. A player got punched and the referee issued red cards, ejecting both the puncher and the punched. The players chased the referee, but he managed to get away. Then a coach ran out and choked the referee. Later in the game fans tore down a fence and hit a linesman with a stone and then threw soda on him while he was on the ground.
*What else would a soccer match erupt in? Hugs? Puppies? Yeah, I’d watch that. #savehappyendings
