Don't know if Germans but YIKES! (Ref beheaded)

Referee beheaded after killing player

By ESPN staff
An amateur football match in Brazil led to two deaths as a referee was beheaded by spectators after he had stabbed a player.


The shocking incidents occurred in Maranhao, Brazil, last Sunday. According to reports, referee Otavio Jordao da Silva fatally stabbed footballer Josenir dos Santos Abreu.

Dos Santos Abreu is believed to have struck the referee after questioning a decision. In retaliation, Jordao da Silva stabbed the player.

Having witnessed the incident, an outraged group of spectators turned on the referee. He was tied up, beaten, stoned and quartered. They then put his head on a stake and planted it in the middle of the pitch.

One man, Luiz Moraes de Souza, 27, has been arrested over the incident. Police are searching for two more suspects.

Valter Costa is handling the case and, in a statement, he said: "One crime never justifies another crime. Actions likes this do not collaborate with the legality of state law."

Not really a good time to lose one's head. It's just a game.

It was a heady call by the ref. The player deserved that yellow card

Referees need to be more head strong when making difficult decisions

The ref was sticking it to the player before he got headed off at the pitch?

hindsight is 20/20 but I don't think the ref made a heady decision stabbing the player. Definitely got ahead of himself.

I always thought that ref was a bit of a head case.
