Portugal: Footballers fined 40c for gay acts

Sat 13 Dec 2008 In: International News View at Wayback

New rules and punishments for 'bad behaviour' among a junior football team are amusing Portuguese sports fans. The rules, leaked onto the internet, include a 40c fine for 'homosexual acts' including 'slapping a colleague's bottom', reports the Portugal News Online. The list was originally posted in the changing rooms of the Caldas da Rainha 'Rainha D. Leonor' sports pavilion, and has since been rubbished by the head of Casa do Benfica, Joaquim Alves, who claims the bizarre list was a child's prank.
