Brazilian referee stabs player to death during a match

A little warning to all football players out there.

Brazilian referee stabs player to death.

Brazil police are searching for a referee after he allegedly stabbed a player to death during a soccer match in Barreira in Ceara state.
Apparently the referee, Francisco Chaves, was attacked by a player, Francisco da Silva, after blowing for a foul against the visiting Boa-Fe team. Francisco da Silva kicked the referee who pulled out a knife. When Francisco’s brother Jose da Silva went to his sibling’s aid, he was stabbed in the chest and killed.

Francisco da Silva is in hospital with knife wounds to his ribs.

The refs in Brazil must be attacked on a fairly regular basis by players for them to start carrying knives to officiate at games.
