Referee sends himself off
« on: February 02, 2005, 10:07 »
    LONDON, Feb 1 - A referee has sent himself off in an English amateur league match for eyeballing a player who disagreed with a decision.
    Andy Wain had to abandon the Sunday league match between Peterborough North End and a Royal Mail side in the 63rd minute after throwing down his whistle and marching up to confront North End's keeper.
    "It was totally unprofessional. If a player did that I would send him off, so I had to go," Wain, 39, was quoted as saying by the BBC.
    "I heard the keeper say 'It's always the bloody same with you, ref. We never get anything'. It was the last straw, but fortunately I came to my senses."
    Northamptonshire Football Association refused to comment.

that is rather weird i might say ..could he have swapped places with the fourth referee instead?
