Have Gun, Will Travel

Perhaps the Boxing Day Match at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Aston Villa could have used a referee better able to control the match. Somebody like this guy in Malaysia that won't take guff from anybody.

A Malaysian referee took out his gun and fired warning shots in the air after a local soccer match turned unruly following the suspension of a player, a newspaper said on Tuesday.

The referee, who was also a policeman, ran to his patrol car to get his gun after players mobbed him for showing the red-card to one of them, the New Straits Times said.

This ref could probably even get Ronaldo to stop flopping.
