I realize I'll probably get **** for this, but whatever.

See, this is one of my biggest problems with soccer.

I decided to watch some of the Germany/Portugal game earlier today, and I see Michael Ballack get hit in the collarbone, then promptly falls to the ground. Guy barely got hit.

The other one was with Cristiano Ronaldo (who happens to be my favorite soccer player, BTW), where he got tripped up, falls to the ground, looks up and then he decides that he blew out his knee, rolling in pain.

Still was a great game, though.

SECgamecock453
06-19-2008, 06:40 PM
What pissed me off was when the game was in stoppage time, a German player came in for a clean tackle on the ball and the Portuguese guy just flopped to the ground and rolled around ridiculously. Once he realized the ref wasn't going to call it (and Germany were moving on with the ball), he immediately came up from his tuck and roll ball position and flailing to standing up straight and chasing the guy with the ball. The crowd booed instantly, was pretty hilarious.

It's annoying. But the way game is, they do it. Some refs will hand out cards for obvious flops. I guess it's the price we pay for no commercial interuptions. ;)

Ronaldo got stepped on after the play...but that Ballack crap was BS...if you have to leave the pitch you should have to sit out at least 2 minutes or something...only way to stop the faking.

The flopping isn't as bad as it used to be, as FIFA is cracking down on it and players are starting to see cards for the worst offenses. Either way, I don't see it ever completely going away.

I feel like every sport has its issues, and I'll take diving as an issue any day over the steroids, spygate, and match fixing scandals that plague the MLB, NFL, NBA, cycling, track & field, etc. Diving is annoying, but doesn't really challenge the integrity of the Beautiful Game.

French coach Raymond Domenech knows exactly why his side failed so miserably at Euro 2008. It was the team's hotel. "The layout of the hotel was all wrong," he said. "It was in a kind of cul-de-sac with only one route in and out. Plus, there were no proper directives from the Swiss about gatherings of people watching us eat." (Daily Express)

What a dumbass. lol

Sorry, Vinny, but I'm 1/8 spanish - from my great grandmother Maria Sanchez (her dad was in the Donalsonville Artillery that served in Lee's Army of Northern Virginia).

I got home from a bike ride just in time to watch the PK round. I didn't get to see any of the rest of the game, so I can't comment on officiating, or play, or anything other than to say that I don't like the looks of the Italian goalkeeper - he looks like a thug from a monty python skit...
