The only person who can stop a referee with a whistle is a club owner with a gun

Whoever thinks 0-0 draws are boring has never been to a match in Greece.

A disputed goal at the end of a match in the Greek Superleague between PAOK Salonika and AEK led to a pitch invasion by PAOK’s owner who was carrying a gun.

Cue chaos. Paok’s owner, Ivan Savvidis, entered the field twice with his bodyguards and a revolver on display.

Greek football authorities have suspended all matches, kind of proving one bad guy can ruin it for everyone.

    Did they disarm him and lock him up? I guess club owners in Greece don’t have to go through security…
