  3. The level of cheating no longer surprises me when there is a lot of money involved. This also reminds me of the McDonald's Monopoly scandal from years ago. People will always try to find a way to rig the system when that kind of money is up for grabs.

    1. But they still claim they is innocent. Imagine if they were and this was just the way for producers not to give them money LOL

    2. I can see that too, but more often than not, they are as guilty as sin.

    3. Funny how a major has no morals. Or maybe that is the main quality they look for in army staff in the west given how many invasions they lead around the world. There were so many of British and American officers who quit their jobs after bombing my country and realising how unethical and criminal it was.
