Soccer Referee Continues To Be The Most Dangerous Job On The Planet

Police in Argentina are searching for a footballer who is said to have shot and killed a referee after being sent off in a match played in the Córdoba province.

According to local reports, the player retrieved a gun from his bag after being shown a red card, returned to the pitch and shot 48-year-old César Flores dead.

A police source told the Efe news agency: “It all happened during the football match. We don’t know [exactly what took place], but it appears the player was angry, fetched a gun and killed him.”


 I wouldn’t be a soccer ref for all the tea in China. I feel like there is at least 1 Soccer Ref a month that loses his life on the pitch. If they aren’t getting their head chopped off then they are getting shot to death. RIP Soccer Referees.
