    scapegoat

    Hi teachers,

    They will make you a scapegoat if you lose the game. Correct?


    Many thanks.

    Re: scapegoat

    not a teacher

    It is correct English, but without more context I can't comment on whether the meaning is appropriate.
    It usually means something like: You will be blamed for the loss, whether it was entirely your fault or not.
