Cheating Indian football teams :D

Indian soccer clubs face bans after 116-goal spree
5:44 PM February 18
Two Indian soccer teams each competing for promotion to a premier league scored 116 goals between them in separate matches after their opponents had clearly been paid off, press reports said on Wednesday.
The clubs in western India's Goa state, Curtorim and Wilfred, could be banned for life - along with their opponents - after notching up basketball-like scores of 61-1 and 55-1 respectively in a bid to sneak past each other, newspapers reported.
The Goa Football Association (GFA) had ordered simultaneous kick-offs for the two matches played at different venues on Tuesday night, as the team scoring the most goals would be promoted to the premier league.
But club officials posted at the two grounds kept in touch with each other by mobile telephones to report progress.
With the matches clearly fixed, play turned into little more than target practice as the two teams scored goals almost every minute-and-a-half, thanks to their respective weaker opponents liberally feeding them loose balls.
Even the goalkeeper of one of the teams joined in the scoring feast, the Indian Express said.
GFA secretary Savio Nessias suspended all four clubs, saying "they made a mockery of football."
"We had anticipated foul play and had sent observers to both matches."
Fans in Goa are mad about soccer and the state has some of the best clubs in the country.
Two years ago in Kolkata, another football-crazy city, a team won 114-0 to avoid relegation.
But it was not banned since officials "did not find enough evidence" of foul play.

That's insane. It's amazing how stupid some people are. Like if you score like 60 points, you think they wouldn't be suspicious. Rolleyes

But they didn't have enough evidence for the team that won 114-0.

No. The games were quite even at half time but in the second half it all started. One of the players on one of the teams that were losing even missed an open goal on purpose.
