It's quite common to hear football fans refer to match officials as being visually impaired onanists who haven't got a clue what's going on. While it's not clear if Belarussian referee Sergey Shmolik is a fan of hand-shandies, it is clear that he wasn't with the program during the second half of last week's game between FC Naftan and FC Vitebsk. Old Sergey you see was drunk and had to be helped off the field.
It seems that someone had spiked the half time oranges with a few shots of vodka. Shmolik spent most of the second half off his tits wandering aimlessly around the centre circle like a lost child in a supermarket.
Unsurprisingly, Shmolik has been suspended from officiating after blood tests confirmed that he had indeed enjoyed a half-time skinful. Shmolik is set to face the music at a Belarusian FA disciplinary hearing this week.
