Holy crap! Just heard about this on the radio...

Police in Brazil are hunting a soccer referee who reportedly stabbed a player to death during a dispute over a foul call.

The fight broke out during a soccer match in the city of Barreira on Sunday afternoon when Jose Ramos da Silva, 28, protested a foul against his team. After a heated argument, the referee, identified as 26-year-old Francisco Edio Gregorio Chaves, pulled out a knife and stabbed da Silva in the chest, reported.

Da Silva’s brother, 24-year-old Francisco das Chagas da Silva, was stabbed four times in the back when he tried to intervene in the fight, but his injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Da Silva died at the scene before he could be treated by doctors, the Marca newspaper reported.

Police are now searching for Chaves, who fled after the attack.

The South Americans are so volatile on the field. I remember a guy in South Africa playing Sunday league for the Italian side. Got blown up for being yards offside,a real no brainer, ripped his shirt off whilst charging the ref screaming abuse,before headbutting him. Broke his nose and who knows what else. His response to a minor infraction was just so OTT that it was kinda funny after the bewildering shock wore off. Not for the ref of course. Some people are just on the ragged edge.All the time.
What was the ref expecting that he was armed anyway?? Must have been previous. You would think if you have to arm yourself to ref a match you just wouldn't do it??
