Some people argue that Premier League referees are too trigger happy with their cards, but Phil Dowd and his ilk have nothing on this nutcase in the Brazilian top flight.
Flamengo took on Vasco da Gama in the Carioca 1 this weekend, and came away 2-1 victors, but both sides ended the match a little light on personnel.
A bust up erupted during the game, during which the ref just stood back and soaked it all up. And instead of breaking it up to restore order, he took his notes and busted out the reds.
Performing a wonderful pirouette with the dreaded card, he dismissed Pablo Guiñazú and Bernado from Vasco, whilst Anderson Pico and Paulinho were sent off from Flamengo.
