WHEN I CAME ACROSS this sentence just now, I was pleased to see it; I like new words. And I had to go to the dictionary.
There have been three public kerfuffles over rules violations in recent years.
Informal chiefly Brit commotion; disorder; agitation
(tr) Scot to put into disorder or disarray; ruffle or disarrange
[from Scottish curfuffle, carfuffle, from Scottish Gaelic car twist, turn + fuffle to disarrange]
