Newcastle midfielder Matt Ritchie calls referee a 'wee dick'

In Premier League soccer action, Newcastle United FC midfielder Matt Ritchie dressed down a referee during Monday's match against Brighton by calling him a "wee dick".

It happened in the 14th minute of the game as Ritchie was called for a foul as he appeared to take down a Brighton player near the sideline. With no fans in the stands, microphones at field level clearly picked up on Ritchie's frustration with the call.

With many pro sports playing in front of empty stadiums for the foreseeable future, there could be a lot more awkward moments like this over the days and weeks to come. Let this be a lesson for Ritchie, and hopefully he can treat the officials a little nicer next time.
