School kids can be cruel. We’re not condoning it but there can’t be a school in the country that doesn’t have its share of bullies and innocent victims. But when these victims grow up, what becomes of them? They become refs and the bullying continues – check out this clip from the Argentinean league for proof. Ref walks backwards, player bends over to tie laces, ref topples over him. One of the oldest tricks in the school bully’s book, that.
