XFL Part Deux?

I'm sure there are about 500 soccer players who will be rushing to defend the flopper.

First, what was that guy doing in the ring with Ray Edwards in the first place?

/and if I was that guy, I might flop too
//rather than get my head broken
///look at the reach difference, height difference, holy hell

The article does not, in fact, feature an image of the Ric Flair Flop.

For shame.

If the ref was from Azerbaijan, the short tubby guy would have won.

Soccer players at least make an effort to make it look realistic.

Well, unless you're Ekanga Amia.

Vlade Divac is not impressed by that amateur.

Probably should have stayed one more year at Purdue, Ray.

2013-02-11 06:27:12 PM  
I would've taken a dive at the first opportunity too.  Who puts two mismatched fighters together like that?  It would've been ridiculous if the guy was fit and that short.  But short and fat?

neuroflare: At least someone touched this guy


There was one like that, a huge pile up and a ref went over to pull guys off to figure it all out. The very large football player must have thought it was someone on the other team of equal stature, no, this little ref pulled this huge guy off and he just sends himself sailing backwards to his back. I wonder what that flopper was thinking when he realized, even the guys calling the game on tv said something about that clown.

I was surprised when the Vikings let him leave, and even more so when Atlanta did earlier in the year. Looks like they knew what they were doing.

Man...  I don't think we'll ever see a flopper of Vlade's talent again.  He was the Michael Jordon of flopping.

promoters pay guys to take dives to build up impressive looking X-0 records and match up two of those fighters in a big matchup and cash out? who knew
i bet taking dives pays big bucks but not if you suck at it like this guy

Yeah... Ali Liston was definitely NOT a flop.

Clearly and understandably most of you have never been punched and certainly never been hit with a punch you didn't see coming.

If you want to debate Liston's willingness to get up that's one thing.  But he definitely got tagged.

Seriously, without the Fosbury Flop, nobody would give two shiats about sports like high jumping and pole vaulting.

Biggest flop in sports history, it is.
