Bobby Cox Would be Proud

by Ryan Hudson

Admittedly, I do not watch that much soccer. I'll closely follow the World Cup and the European Championships, and maybe catch an occasional EPL or MLS game, but that's usually about it, so, forgive me if this happens a lot, but I've certainly never seen it before.

Today, in the match between Austria and Germany, both head coaches were sent off by the referee.

Andy Gray (I'm pretty sure that's who the color commentator is for this match) does a fine job of ripping into the referee.
"This is a nonsense. A complete and utter nonsense. It's not them that should be going -- it's him! What is his problem here?!"

Soccer referees with an ego can be rather bothersome (almost as annoying as the French flopping).
