Brilliant display of sportsmanship
« on: November 14, 2013, 10:44:15 PM »
These two teams Al Nahdha and Al Ittihad of the Saudi Professional League were tied at 2-2 when Al Nahdha Keeper made a save and was about to kick the ball upfield.  He hesitated noticing his shoelace untied but couldn't put the ball down to tie it, with the Al Ittihad striker (the Brazilian, Jobson) lurking.  Surprisingly Jobson went up to the keeper and tied his lace for him.

Then the idiot ref whistled the keeper for delay just as he released the kick... awarding Al Ittihad an indirect free kick.  Sportingly Al Ittihad decided to do their own thing anyways.

Superb! This kind of behavior sets a great example to supporters.
Shame the ref nearly spoiled the moment, but inadvertently he made incident even more special.

Too much book sense and not enough common sense by the ref
