The 36-year-old dad explained: “I was watching the kids play the other day, it was the younger kids of Romeo’s club, and there was a penalty given, and the kids are seven years old and he sent the kid off. And I was like, ‘Come on, he’s seven, referee, you can’t send him off.'”

The referee wasn’t having it. “He looked at me and was like, ‘Yes, I can.’ And he came over and gave me a red card. He told me to get out of the park. For real. The gate was only 20 yards away and I waited and went back in when my son’s game was on.”
