Is it something about soccer?

I was saddened to read this morning about fraud charges laid against the former Executive Director of the Saskatchewan Soccer Association. Boyd Clark is accused of defrauding the provincial non-profit governing body of about $80,000 over three years.

Here's what's weird - of the past three Executive Directors of the SSA, two were charged with defrauding the organization! Methinks they need to review their hiring policies! Or, stop leaving bags of money lying around the office.

For the record, the only heads of the SSA in recent history to not be charged with fraud are Bjorn Osieck, who is currently the Executive Director of the B.C. Soccer Association (and a former co-host of SportZone on Access 7), and the current Executive Director of the SSA, Mark Richardson.
