We Knew This Was Coming

In a not-completely-surprising show of sports fan outrage, Spanish soccer fans are suing a match referee for costing their team a win. Valencia led world power Real Madrid 1-0 going into the final minutes of their match this weekend. A Valencia win would have moved them to the top of the table in Spain's top league. A disputed penalty call later, Real left the pitch with a 1-1 draw. Valencia fans are suing for an apology and nominal damages.

I'm only surprised that this didn't happen in the United States first.
