The EPL May Want to Rethink Its International Game Strategy

As previously reported, the EPL (suck it, Barclay's) hopes to embark on an international three-hour-tour with League games. The referees for these matches may want to have a world with the league if any games are scheduled in southeast Asia. In Thailand, a referee was assaulted after the team took issue with his calls.

A Thai soccer referee was beaten up by an entire team after sending off three of their players during a match to decide promotion to country's second division, local media reported on Friday.

The angry players charged into Prakong's dressing room at the stadium in Ayutthaya, north of Bangkok, and started to kick and punch him. They dispersed after police fired gunshots into the air.

Don't let Chelsea know that these sorts of actions are tolerable on the road. Who knows what will happen? The refs should start arming themselves.
Update: More evidence of southeast Asia unruliness.

Did the ref not have a gun in his car? I thought that's how they all dealt with this stuff.
