Brazilian Soccer Team Cuts Four Players After Masturbation Video Scandal
Masturbation, video, and scandal are three words you never want to see lined up next to each other. And yet, thanks to four soccer players formerly employed by Brazilian club Sport Clube Gaucho, here we are.
Gaucho, a third-tier team located in the small Brazilian city of Passo Fundo, has voided the contracts of four players after a video of them masturbating in the team locker room somehow leaked and went viral. According to Spanish newspaper Diario AS, the video shows one first-team player “mutually masturbating” two others while a fourth records them.
“When I hit play, I deleted it, I think it’s disgusting,” club president Gilmar Rosso told Spanish sports website GloboEsporte. “Outside business hours, we have nothing to do with the situation. If they want to get drunk, [be] gay or not, that’s their problem.”
“What I have to answer as president is during a trip, office hours,” Rosso continued. “That’s my responsibility. The club is not a keeper of morals and good manners. The only thing we have to answer to is the making of the video inside the club dressing room.”
It’s unclear what in God’s name would possess the players in question to do something so stupid. Getting involved with co-workers is always risky. Getting involved with three of them at work and then filming it is career suicide.
Unfortunately the club declined to name the players involved, so until one of them steps forward their motives just have to remain a mystery.
As for the video, if you want to see that you’re definitely on your own.
