I don’t blame him. What a ridiculous diving call. Ludicrous.

Well, Dougie got it right.

The ref f*cked up

That was the finest rant / tantrum I’ve have ever seen.  He screamed, “you fxcked up” in the ref’s face, about ten times.  He shamed him into a nearly instant make-up call in which another real penalty became another off-setting coincidental, this time the other way, and really brought out a wild west feel.  Classic moment.  Weight has been in at least 1000 more games than the ref, I’m sure, and he made him feel like a piece, while Capuano started to politely restrain him, an outrageous smirk dominating his face.  Down a goal late in the game to boot.  Good stuff.
