The notion of going to war when you do not want to is a very scary concept ... particularly when you are a soccer player. So some players on the South Korea soccer team decided to do something about it.

To avoid being drafted into the South Korea army, 92 soccer players purposely dislocated their shoulders. It didn't work out that well.

The players, including 15 professional K-League players, dislocated their shoulders by methods such as swinging their arms while holding heavy weights or having fellow players jump on their shoulders.

Local media said if they are found guilty, they will most likely have to perform community service for two years, but some could be forced into the military or sent to jail.


That's unfortunate, though we have no doubt whatsoever that a couple of those players acted like someone jumped on their shoulders, and winced and screamed in pain regardless.
