Last weekend, whilst here at the Latics we were bemoaning the reluctance of referee Mark Clattenburg to send off Manchester United`s Wayne Rooney for his sly, from behind whack on James McCarthy, one referee in Argentina had no such qualms when he issued 36 (thirty-six) red cards in one game.
The ref, Damian Rubeno, dismissed all 22 players, plus reserves and coaches when he was officiating the derby game between Claypole and Victoriano Arenas following a mass brawl.
Claypole boss Sergio Micieli, accused the ref of being, erm confused, Micieli said: 'Most players were trying to separate people. The ref was confused.'
Whilst rival boss Domingo Sganga had a completely different take on matters when talking about his opponents, Sganga said: 'They wanted to kill me.'
Very interesting, of course closer to home and we had players involved in a mass brawl just down the road from Wigan in Macclesfield, in the Silkmens game with Wycombe there was an explosion of fisty-cuffs following a clumsy challenge when it looked more akin to Rugby Union than football, that brawl resulted in just 3 players receiving red cards
I wonder what Mark Clattenburg made of it all?
