    Five soccer players were given red cards in their dressing rooms after a post-match brawl, according to Reuters.

    The unusual move came after the Crawley Town beat Bradford City 20-1 in an English League Two match.

    "I can't believe this has happened," Bradford manager Phil Parkinson told the BBC. "I have never been in a situation before where a ref has come into the dressing room, pulled players on one side and sent them off. He wouldn't allow me in there."
