Angry soccer player tries to trip referee, has to be carried off the pitch like a kid throwing a tantrum

This video is a work of art. A muddy game between Fortis Arezzo and Castel San Niccolò in Italy turned into a Three Stooges skit when a player was given a red card. The player was given a red card and lashed out, furiously hacking at the referee's calf in an attempt to trip him. It didn't work. The ref turned away and let the angry player get carried off like an upset 5-year-old who doesn't want to leave the park.

Castel San Niccolò lost 4-0, with all four goals coming after this sending off. Sounds like soccer karma.
