On Saturday, referee Andrew Keigans was assaulted by an assistant coach of the West Park Saints after he called an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in response to a derogatory comment that was made towards the ref. As you can see in the video, the call wasn't well received and things escalated when a cheap shot was landed on the referee.
Ironically, the guy that landed the sucker punch was Dion Robinson, "a convicted felon who over the years has had more than a dozen arrests." In the 1980s, Robinson served time for robbery while also pleading no contest to cocaine delivery, indecent exposure and unlawful use of a false name since 2003. Sounds like the perfect guy to have around your kids during their formative years, right?
Sidebar: It's just been a bad year for football referees in general.
