Olympic Controversy! 8 Athletes EXPELLED!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSad SadOlympics

Of alllllll the Olympic sports out there, the one we'd think would have the smallest chance of having a controversy would be harmless little badminton.

That's not the case.

Eight female badminton players are to be EXPELLED from the games for trying to lose matches to receive a more favorable draw.

They were found guilty of "not using one's best efforts to win a match" and "conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport."

Lame!

Apparently this has become a problem since they switched to qualifying rounds instead of just elimination rounds.

Why are people always looking for a way to cheat??

Check out the press conference (above)!

UPDATE: It would appear that it's official now. NBC tweeted that the International Olympic Committee has officially "laid the smack down" (our words; not theirs) and expelled eight badminton players from the Olympics!

How shameful.

Cheaters never prosper!
