Coach Punches Referee During Iranian Youth Soccer Game

By Mike Cardillo

Anyone with passing knowledge of global diplomacy knows the United States and Iran don’t exactly see eye-to-eye on most topics. Perhaps one way we can bridge the gap is through youth sports, or specifically how crazy they make adults.

Here’s footage from a recent youth game in Tehran where a coach walks onto the field and takes a couple swings, well slaps, at the referee. The referee himself isn’t without blame, as he showed the coach before the blows rained down on him. [via 101GG]
