    Is it Sugar? It sounds like it could be a name- the person who is critical of the cheats.

    I thought it might refer to Alan Sugar but I have Googled the headline and various parts of it which might refer to the story but without success. We will definitely need the OP to post a link to this headline!
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
