"Move the goalposts" nghĩa là gì?

"Move the goalposts" = di chuyển cột gôn -> nghĩa là thay đổi luật lệ, thông số của một sự việc để phục vụ lợi ích cá nhân, khiến người khác khó thành công, khó đạt được mục tiêu hơn.

Ví dụ
First, we’ve grown accustomed (quen với) to Republicans clumsily (vụng về) moving the goalposts in the hopes of helping their scandal-plagued president, but Graham’s latest posture was considerably more ridiculous: the senator isn’t moving the goalposts; he’s eliminating (loại bỏ) them.

“I am being lied to. My son’s prescription (đơn thuốc) for Bedrolite medicine is actively being blocked. “You will continue to move the goalposts every time I find an access route to an NHS prescription for Cole. “While you all continue to play a political version of pass the parcel, I’m left to pick up the pieces of your failings.

And while a Utah-Ohio State semifinal doesn’t sound all that appealing (hấp dẫn), to move the goalposts on Utah now would be the ultimate dirty trick. If Utah wins out, it will have earned its way into the college football’s Final Four.
