(Warning: Full moon)
Losing their first Euro 2012 match to co-host nation Ukraine was an embarrassment for Sweden and while they've taken a beating from the press in the days since, it appears they've also taken a beating from themselves. Video of the team trying to keep the mood light in training by firing shots at backup keeper Johan Wiland's exposed rear was released by Swedish paper Expressen and now it's causing the players more problems.
It's a game played at training grounds around the world (although perhaps more often with less nudity), yet a Swedish anti-bullying organization has claimed that this was an act of bullying.
This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
