Clint Dempsey got so mad at the CONCACAF refs he ripped their patch off his jersey

Clint Dempsey does not give a flying f**k about soccer refs, and it showed during Tuesday's match between the Seattle Sounders and Club América. After a ref gave Sounders teammate Andreas Ivanschitz a yellow card for showing dissent, Dempsey tore off the CONCACAF patch on his uniform as a form of protest:

It's not the first time he got chippy with a soccer ref. In June 2015, Dempsey ripped up a ref's notebook because he was giving Michael Azira (his teammate at the time) a red card.

Of course, Dempsey earned a red card for that gesture. It bears repeating: Clint Dempsey does not give a f**k.
