[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] This is definitely not the kind of scene we like to see on the soccer field, but unique enough we felt we had to share.

In Kuwait, referee Saad Al Fadhli awards a penalty kick to Al Arabi during its 4-1 win over Al Naser and resorts to extreme but effective self-defense measures when attacked by Al Naser players.

    Not to state the obvious, but boy was that ugly...the AR and the goalkeeper seemed to be doing the right thing. While the red cards were unquestionably deserved, I'm not sure the ref punching and kicking the players was helpful.
