Acting is the world's most popular sport. Soccer is just the theatre.

That was horrifying, subby. And they way they just replayed it over and over in slow motion...

I'd like you to remember this moment when you hear someone going on and on and on about how TOTALLY superior the rest of the world is to the U.S.

Pretty sure I'd be embarrassed to be one of those players. Let me know when it turns into a game played by men.

Yes, we should really take European Football seriously. It's a great sport. Mmm hmm.

Now THIS is a flop! (Watch the Bengals' #89)

It's just like when a punter or a returner who called a fair catch gets brushed, and goes down acting like he got bricked by five defensive backs.

I gave up soccer when I broke a childhood friend's leg with a misplaced kick. He didn't even have to feign flopping, his leg just done broke. Freaked the living shiate out of me. So I stuck with American wankball until I saw my neighbor friend speared, get a spinal injury, and one of those skull halos.

BASKETBALL IT IS!

This reminds me of that time Butters killed people every time he dared to tap-dance. This guy needs to be put away before any more people are crippled.

Do any of the larger leagues review shiat like this and then issue fines or suspensions for players guilty of flopping?

Two Amway Canadian Championship for the Voyageurs Cup threads in one week? Now I've seen everything.

Exactly why the Us doesn't buy into soccer, sorry footballers to you pasty europeans. I can admire rugby players, but footballers are like the bulk of kids that got picked on in school but were fast enough to run away before getting their asses kicked.

this popped up on the web yesterday:

25 ridiculous NBA flops (animated gifs)

it's a 25-page animated gif slideshow, but it really shows the brutality of the sport.

I like how 1/3 of the posts in this thread are trying to draw some false equivalence between flopping in soccer and football/basketball/whatever.

Soccer is the sissiest and floppiest major sport on the planet. Little anecdotes about football/basketball players flopping occasionally don't even compare. Deal with it.

It's slowed down recently but ESPN.com was doing an NBA Flop of the Night feature. I think they should keep it up for an entire season.

Here's the question: why do so many refs feel the need to call a foul when they have only seen the aftermath (sometimes a flop) and not the actual infraction? Is it simply a defensive measure to call something (anything) in the hope that people won't assume that they're too blind/incompetent/etc. to have seen the foul? Are they secure in their knowledge that if it is in fact a flop or a dive that all of the blame will be placed on the player instead of the ref who didn't see it?

Just looking at this thread, most of the responses fault the player but not the ref who should have never removed a player from the game if he didn't see the infraction.
 
2012-05-25 11:58:49 PM
The thing that amazes me is just how gullible the referee is. He's clearly looking in a different direction when the incident happens. In any other sport, the ref calls what he sees and doesn't call what he doesn't see, which sometimes results in unjust non-calls but avoids truly ridiculous outcomes like this one. Here, his peripheral vision catches some arm activity, he turns and sees a player down on the field, and he reaches a verdict based on circumstantial evidence -- even though everybody knows about the widespread flopping phenomenon. That's why players flop: because it works. The referees are stupid enough to go for it again and again and again.

Because the ref can't see everybody at one time and only sees the result? That is why they do it.

Greenlighting ridiculously trolly "articles" so that closed-minded people who have already made up their minds on a topic will come in and backslap each other?

There's loads of trolly headlines in sports. However the attitude of some of the people here really shows how ignorant people are when it comes to sports they don't like.

Like we needed further reasons to not watch the most boring sport in the world.
As a Bengals fan anything that happens to the Browns is a good thing.

Please watch Bengals #89 in this flop.

Oh, I see you've been in a Fark NBA thread.

Out of curiosity, does it happen in hockey, MMA, WWE, NASCAR, or boxing threads?

Because I don't really follow those sports so I - stay with me here - don't participate in the threads.
