In news that surely nearly prompted another spontaneous hunters’ protest demonstartion on the streets of Valletta (or perhaps Paris), similar to the one that took place on the day the autumn hunting season was suspended, we learnt this weekend that Paris St-Germain striker Edinson Cavani was sent off for his trademark gun celebration and subsequent protest as the French champions beat Lens.

 

It was indeed a week of debatable sending offs, as we saw in the Malta vs Italy match closer to home. We also heard of the tragic death of an Indian Premier League player who died because of his acrobatic goal celebration very recently (watch the video clip below).

 

Uruguayan Cavani, a keen hunter (why doesn’t he buy a Maltese passport and come and play for us? He’ll feel right at home!), was booked after bending on one knee and firing an imaginary shot with an imaginary rifle/shotgun during a 3-1 victory.

 

He reacted by touching referee Nicolas Rainville's arm, with the official then showing him a red card.

 

PSG president Nasser Al Khelafi backed Cavani and said the 27-year-old "did not deserve" to be dismissed.

 

While staying clear of the controversy, SWAG’s put together a list of 10 other memorable celebrations that have made us smile – or perhaps p****d us right off – over the years.

 

  10. The Crazed Run
