4 big balls on top of the goals

From reading the rules, I don't see that this is specifically prohibited. The rules say that big balls must not be supported by a robot, and that they must be on top of the goal.

So, why not tip over the goal, and put 3 or 4 big balls on "top" of the goal, as it lies sideways -- like how they store bowling balls at a bowling alley. I'm guessing that as soon as I mention this possiblity, a rule will come out against it, but who knows.

So, from reading the rules as it is, do people think that this is legal. If it is, it could dramatically change the strategy.
