Orlando, FL - Orlando City fan Deryk Thompson turned to friend Steven Blazykowski and stated, "Actually it's a really difficult job" just after screaming, "GO FUCK YOURSELF AND DIE, ELFATH!" during the Orlando City game against Toronto FC on the 25th of June.
Reportedly, Thompson was made unbelievably angry by referee Ismael Elfath regarding a decision made by the referee during the game against Toronto to not award a free kick. This decision was deemed so egregious that Thompson routinely screamed profanities, heard only by the six rows that surround the area where he stands, at Elfath.
"I mean, it's an incredibly tough position to be in and you can't expect a referee to get everything correct," stated Thompson as he attempted to get a chant going of, "FUCK YOU, REF!"
The Nutmeg News interviewed friend Anita West about Mr. Thompson's outbursts and she stated the following, "Well, Deryk is always tough but fair. He yells belligerently at the people around him about the referee, but he also admits that it is a tough job to perform. We all feel that his gentle asides about the referee excuses his verbal assault on him at maximum decibel levels."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Mr. Thompson prepares for another week in the dichotomy of being a sensible and infuriatingly avid fan.
