Hundreds Of Partizan Belgrade Fans Throw Snowballs At Assistant Referee
Winter is coming and to celebrate the festive period, Partizan Belgrade fans have decided to entertain themselves by pelting hundreds of snowballs at the Assistant Referee.
in a scene reminiscent of a school playground, a bunch of Partizan supporters clearly weren't interested with the 0-0 draw against Macva Sabac, instead doing this to the unfortunate official when the ball went out of play.
The game was stopped but the Serbian home support continued to attack the Assistant, while the referee approached to calm the situation down.
What a bizarre series of events.
On this week in 2017, the snow was so bad in Cologne that the referee had to re-mark the penalty spot in the game against Freiburg at the RheinEnergieStadion, but then again, at least he didn't get pelted with snowballs.
The hosts, who sat at the bottom of the table at the time, went 1-0 up in the 8th minute through Lucas Klunter and were awarded a penalty eight minutes after.
However, with such a heavy snow presence on the pitch - meaning the orange ball had to be used, penalty taker couldn't find the penalty spot.

And in a moment straight out of Sunday League, the referee had to walk from the goal-line and count the distance to where the spot-kick should be taken.

Goal! We are 2-0 up with Guirassy slotting away the penalty. Can we play in the snow every week please?- 1.FC Köln UK (@effzehUK) December 10, 2017
We can't wait for the orange ball to make a brief, but outrageous appearance in the Premier League come January/February time. It's always a delight.
