Ouch! Player sent off for having pierced nether regions

Following an inspection of his bits, Old Hill Wanderers player Aaron Eccleston was sent off for having a delicately situated piercing.

NOT SURE ABOUT you, but it’s a while since we’ve seen a good ‘ref sends player off for having an intimately placed piercing’ story.

Aaron Eccleston, who plays for the reserve side of Melbourne’s Old Hill Wanderers, saw red recently for having a piece of jewellery down where the sun doesn’t even get a look in.

Eccleston was escorted from the pitch by the particularly puritanical official for an inspection of his nether regions. The man in black, on the evidence of the video footage a descendant of Al Pacino’s Tony Montana, was in no mood to be trifled with and produced the red card to a mix of crude language, childish sniggering and indignant protests.
