We’re not sure how an arbitrarily sectioned off mass of land could have feelings of any kind but if it could we’re starting to suspect that Iran hates football. Last week we had the two players who were fined, banned and now face public flogging for some over exuberant celebrating and now we have this clip of an Iranian league game descending into farce as players, coaches and fans gang up on the ref and give him a right good kicking. Two negative incidents in one week? That’s all the proof I need. Quit hating football Iran!
