This isn't precisely the same wording as your quote, but the meaning is similar:

"Vitas Gerulaitis was a firebrand. Fined 1,250 in 1978 for indulging
in 'gross and obscene behavior,' he suggested that a line judge be
'put in a crematorium and burned'."

If this is the quote you're looking for, I'll be glad to post it as
your official answer.

in a crematorium and burned'..."
