Soccer has been rocked by another finger-in-bum attack on the field, known as an “oil check.”
This time the incident took place in Brazil following a number of similar wandering-hand moments in recent years.
Ponte Preta was up 2-0 against Vitoria in a relegation c battle Sunday night.
But center back Rodrigo took matters literally into his own hands by assaulting Vitoria opponent Rodrigo Tellez with just 20 minutes on the clock.
Rodrigo, who even grimaced at the force of his own thrust, was sent off, leaving Preta with 10 men for the remainder of the match.
And his absence cost his team, who ended up losing 3-2 to suffer relegation instead of Vitoria, making Rodrigo single-handedly responsible for a pitch invasion.
But even the angry fans will have a hard time trying to explain just why Rodrigo did what he did early in the match.

Just last month, the finger-in-bum controversy reared its head when Diego Perotti did it to Roma teammate Stephan El Shaarawy after beating Chelsea in the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Gonzalo Jara is so fond of it that he did it in two different games against Uruguay while playing for Chile, once to Edinson Cavani and once to Gaston Ramirez.
