A day in the life of a hated ref

Of course, the death threats. The smuggling out of the country via police escort to avoid those threats being realized.

The changing of hotels to avoid being noticed.

Having the 'you have more hair than brains' chant become the anthem of millions of fans instead of just the Norwegian ones.

Being told by UEFA not to talk to the media.

All this for a paltry $7,500 paycheck. I'm sure you never would've guessed he's on the shortlist for World Cup refs.

Good thing he's a psychologist.
