South American Linesman Hit With Roll Of Paper, Milks It Like Brawny Bavarian Dairy Maid, Gets Game Called Off

By Chris Wright

Here we see linesman Milciades Saldivar, flat out on the touchline after being pelted with a projectile during the South American Cup game between Universidad de Chile and Nacional in Montevideo last night…

The ‘projectile’, as can clearly be seen in the photo above, was nothing more than a rolled-up paper streamer – a missile that would weigh no more than a few grammes even if it were wet-through.

Still, that didn’t stop Senor Saldivar from milking the incident for all that it was worth, lying ‘unconscious’ on the floor until he was carted from the pitch by paramedics and loaded into the back of an ambulance while the referee was left with no option other than to call the match off with 43 minutes of the second-half remaining…

Here’s the video of the whole ridiculous debacle…

What a prune.

    is he related to Busquets?

    Those things can hurt. A lad at my school took one in the eye and it did him serious damage.

    The toilet paper nearly broke his neck…

  4. gamblino says:

    It looks like it might be one of those receipt rolls which would be a bit more painful.

  5. CFC_Jay says:

    @ Coolie………Yeah Chris…..Way & Weigh……….lol grammar not your best subject matey :)

  6. CFC_Jay says:

    oh and it shows how heavy that “missle bog-roll” was………it almost floated to the floor after “poll-axing” the linesman! Rivaldo 2002 world cup against Turkey springs to mind hahahahaha!

  7. JJ says:

    Even the referees dive in South America. I remember when they used to throw oranges and rocks and the refs took it better than this guy.

  8. Chris says:

    @Coolie/CFC_Jay: I think you’ll find it’s the exception that proves the otherwise immaculate rule!

  9. Rover_Dan says:

    It was a cash register roll, which I imagine would hurt a lot more than a loo roll. Still, he does make a meal of it.

  10. Murray says:

    Pro Wrestling referees don’t even get knocked unconscious by shit like this!

  11. Chris says:

    Yeah, a cash register roll would definitely hurt. But hospital hurt? Still, not against teaching some assholes a lesson about behaving badly when you go to a match.

    Dweeb

    make a drama.. sue get money.. simple as that

  14. KingEric7 says:

    Yea those receipt reels have a hard plastic or metal spool in the middle which I can imagine would smart a bit. On another note which nobody has addressed yet, what a shot!

  15. Varun says:

    Delayed reaction.

    Been there…seen and felt that…..while officiating in the NASL, I was hit by a 1 litre coke bottle(plastic thank God) that was about 1/4 full…now THAT hurts. Also had a pitcher of beer poured over me…that was more fun!
    In South America they’d throw old batteries, water bottles,road flares and the like so why do you think they have 40 ft. high fences surrounding most of the pitches there?
    This guy did make quite a drama out of it but the Laws clearly state that the referee HAS to abandon the game when the safety of the players,spectators and/or officials is threatened by natural or crowd events.

  17. Petty Pete says:

    Domhauille – those were some great anecdotes. Do you have any more? Maybe you could sell the film rights? Great times, great stories.

  18. Colonel Kurtz says:

    Death by toilet roll.

  19. alex says:

    Definate contact, seen them given

  20. John says:

    A full roll from an adding machine thrown from close range would be like a block of wood. The people having a go at the guy should perhaps try it one day.
