Ball hits ref, ref loses wig
This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.
When this clip begins you’ll feel a little disorientated due to the NFL-style grid markings (although not as disorientated as the linesman will by the end). Ball gets kicked out and knocks official over, so far so good, and it gets better. Is it just us or does the fall actually knock the ref’s toupée off? Brilliant. We have a theory though, after Pierluigi Collina’s mandatory retirement we reckon he’s making a secret comeback via US collegiate football. He just can’t shake the refereeing bug. Sussed!
