Lawrie is tossed, spikes his helmet, which bounces and hits the umpire on the leg.

Lawrie gets four games for "aggressive behavior toward an official." Ump gets nothing for sucking at his job.
Insert "ref" for "ump" and you could be talking about the NHL (and probably every other sport known to mankind).
