    Reuters - Friday, February 8 04:48 amBANGKOK (Reuters) - A Thai soccer referee was beaten up by an entire team after sending off three of their players during a match to decide promotion to country's second division, local media reported on Friday.

    Referee Prakong Sukguamala needed 50 stitches and also broke a finger after being attacked by the Kuiburi FC squad, furious at being shown three red cards during a 4-1 loss to Kasem Bundit on Thursday, the Thai-language Thai Rath newspaper said.

    The angry players charged into Prakong's dressing room at the stadium in Ayutthaya, north of Bangkok, and started to kick and punch him. They dispersed after police fired gunshots into the air.

    The players then chased Prakong into the stadium's office, where the hapless official ran into a mirror, leaving him with cuts all over his body.

    Prakong told Channel 3 television he was forced to lock himself in the room to escape his attackers.

    In the same interview, Kuiburi's coach accused Prakong of biased refereeing but said he had urged his players to show restraint when tempers flared.

    Prakong, covered in bruises, insisted he had refereed the game fairly and had been told by Thailand's soccer federation to press charges against the Kuiburi team.

    Thats not being a sore loser, thats trying to persudae the ref to look at things with a different point of view.

    Sore losing is the columbian football team that killed thier goal keeper after he let one in that caused them to lose the game!

    Makes it look even more pathetic when the England team complain about the "bad media" attention they get!
