Move The Goalposts. That's A Suspendin'

First came performance enhancing drugs and then came Bloodgate. Both shocked the sporting world however no one involved in either scandal had the cheating balls shown by Swedish goalkeeper Kim Christensen on Thursday night.

The IFK Goteborg keeper is facing a fine and/or suspension for moving the goalposts closer to each other before a match against Orebo.

If you're going to cheat, it's probably best not to do it in front of TV cameras. The referee noticed after 20 minutes and moved them back to their original position. No card was given at the time as he didn't know who moved them.

Christensen should also be commended for his honesty or stupidity depending how you look at it. He admitted that he had moved the goalposts in several previous matches. Someone should have hired Jackie Chiles before talking to the media.
