Bundesliga ref shows five cards in 12 seconds

When you’ve had enough of everyone’s shit and it’s time to lay a disciplinary smackdown
During added time of Ingolstadt’s 1–0 win over RB Leipzig on Saturday, referee Markus Schmidt reached his breaking point. Like a gunslinger in the Old West, Schmidt laid down the law with his trusty cards, first showing Mathew Leckie two yellows and a red in quick succession, then Davie Selke got a yellow, then Florent Hadergjonaj got one.
Leckie found the sequence quite amusing, but Schmidt wasn’t joking around. If the match didn’t end when it did, he probably would’ve started throwing yellow cards like ninja stars.
After seeing this, I’m 99% sure Schmidt tries to book other drivers on his way home from work.
