rjakobi: Of note, 139 of those incidents were done by Luis Suarez.
Shame Us: A conservative estimate of 10 penalties per game in the NFL playoffs would put the total of "cheating" instances at 110. When are they finally going to rein that crap in?
Rev.K: Are players "cheating" when they grab a ball over the touch line, knowing full well the other team has the throw, and pitch the ball out of reach to buy a few seconds to get their teammates back into position?I don't think you call that cheating.
StRalphTheLiar: They should try doing this type of study on travelling in the NBA.
IAmRight: Rev.K: Are players "cheating" when they grab a ball over the touch line, knowing full well the other team has the throw, and pitch the ball out of reach to buy a few seconds to get their teammates back into position?I don't think you call that cheating.It's not cheating to knowingly and intentionally obstruct your opponents illegally in order to gain an advantage? Well, okay.
NeoCortex42: Is this only player cheating? Or does it include FIFA itself too?
Neeek: Kuta: 390 instances of cheating in 64 games, three-quarters of which were professional/tactical fouls which most soccer players, referees and fans consider to be a normal part of the game. Usually those fouls result in yellow cards which can have a significant impact on the game. There were 241 yellow cards in the 2010 World Cup, and I bet three-quarters of those were for tactical fouls. It's quite common.That leaves ~92 real instances of cheating in 64 games, or about 1.5 instances per game. I think that is not a large number even though zero is best.Well, at least one of the red cards issued was an instance of real cheating, and not a professional foul. And the card wasn't issued to the guy who was cheating (See Kaka, Brazil vs. Ivory Coast http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u60GVxmcp6M). I'm guessing quite of few of the other yellow cards would be dives that the ref thought were professional fouls.
hammettman: Is it just me, or do they flop more in futbol than my dick after a pint of Jack? Every tackle. It's like they'd been hit with Ty Cobb's sharpened cleats.
