Ref Slapper Banned For Life

In a total break with precedence Pieter Rumaropen, the Persiwa player sent off at the weekend for slapping the referee, has been banned from football for life! The ref's shirt was covered in claret and he needed stitches following the assault.

Pelita Bandung Raya defender Nova Arianto had steamed into the penalty area only to be felled by a two footed challenge. The ref gave a penalty, Persiwa protested and Rumaropen lamped the official from behind.

What remains unanswered is what the hell Arianto was doing on the overlap anyway!

Fair play to the ISL for acting swiftly but Rumaropen still has two weeks to appeal.

The incident can be seen here.
