OFF THE POST: Not such a clever way to fix a game

MOST COMMENTED

During a Cameroon First Division game, Bamboutos FC's coach calls Federal SC captain Nkoun a Rim to the sideline for a chat late in the second half after Federal tied the game, 2-2. Shortly afterward, Bamboutos captain Koss Roger hits the floor and acts injured. In full view of the spectators, already suspicious because of the sideline conference, Bamboutos' trainer hands Roger an envelope. Roger returns to action and hands the envelope to Nkoun a Rim, who makes a lackluster effort in the play that leads to Bamboutos' winning goal. Cameroon's federation has relegated Bamboutos FC two divisions and has banned the officials and players involved in the incident for at least two years.
