Judgment call on the ref's part. What I find disconcerting is the amount of people who don't like holding kids/adults accountable for their actions. Feel bad for the kid all you want for losing out on an opportunity given he is clearly a great wrestling talent, but don't use those feelings to cloud the need to hold him accountable for his actions. Best case scenario is the kid learns from this, the parents learn from this (doubt it as they are probably the root cause of the kids behavior problems), and he becomes a better behaved young man. Kudo's to the ref for making a judgment call and holding the kid accountable for his actions.
