The Night Vale Scorpions did very poorly before Michael Sandero's lightning strike, as he had cerebal palsy. They had the worst season in their history, but Sandero's lightning strike turned their team around. The team faced off against their rivals, and won with Sandero's second head. The Desert Bluffs School District claimed that this qualified an extra player on the field.  The team also participated in the division title run, winning due to Sandero's second head.
Allegations of Cheating Edit
The Desert Bluffs Vultures have repeatedly accused the Scorpions of cheating, and made complaints to the Regional Football and Traffic Code Authority.
They alleged that the Scorpions have been cheating by praying for divine intervention. The school board held a hearing, but it's unclear if they care at all, because it was a front, put up by the City Council, to trap Angels. Several Angels had agreed to testify, but were captured. However, they escaped in a blaze of heavenly light. A decision is yet to be made on whether appealing to Angels is tampering.
The Desert Bluffs Vultures also claimed that Michael Sandero's second head qualified as an additional player, and this was under investigation.  However, Michael had his original head removed due to pressure from his mother.
