VIDEO: Chinese ref cleans out Demba Ba - and the commentators absolutely love it
If anyone else on the field put in a challenge like this there would certainly have been a card.
Unfortunately for Demba Ba and his Shanghai Shenhua side, the offender here was the man with the book in his pocket.
The former Chelsea and Newcastle striker was taken out by the referee during this weekend's Chinese Super League derby against Shanghai SIPG in what looked like a pretty painful collision.
While we have no idea what the ref was thinking, the commentators certainly seemed to enjoy it.
