So You Want To Be A Referee?

Finally some authoritative dissent from China. During a soccer game Sunday between Beijing and Tianjin, the referee was chased and beaten by disgruntled Tianjin players after the referee, He Zhibiao, dished out three red cards. Can you imagine Philip Rivers and LaDanian Tomlinson chasing Ed Hochuli after that blunder last year in ...

Are We Really Doing This Again Norv?
