Don't cry 4 -3 Argentina
30 June, 2018 21:48
The South American players in particular, but it applies to all teams in the World Cup, seem prone (a subliminal choice of word) to acting as if every little touch of an arm or brush of a boot by an opposing player, demands a paroxysm of demonstrable affected pain. Furthermore, should the actual point of physical contact be anywhere above the sternum, then the "injured party" must then hold his head in anguish and roll around on the pitch. TBH, this is really starting to irritate me. How can officialdom introduce measures to stop this play acting which is a blight upon the so called beautiful game?

retrospective bans are the only way it will stop.

there's no culture of shame like there is in rugby or combat sports where feigning injury is seen as a reflection on your masculinity and moral fibre. the players arent sorting it themselves. the managers have no interest and even the fans are hypocrites who will support their own players. with no bottom up emergence, it simply has to be retrospective action and bans.

This has to be the best strap line for a post that I've seen on the forum.
Made me laugh.
Ps Mini Andy---Could really good subject titles be highlighted somehow ?

Alternatively introduce chunky fines.

If a player gets £200,000 a week and bonuses, their pay would be around £11,000,000 a season.

In Britain 45% tax would leave around £6,000,000 of net pay.

Any player wishing to prat about and roll a million times, might eventually get a fine in the future worth £20,000 or something like that, so they would not be put off from cheating.

If the fine was worth 20% of a seasons pay, then a fine of £2,200,000 might deter more of this sort of thing.

us fans could put a stop to this virtually overnight if we wanted.

all it would take is scorn and contempt to be shown to our own players. racist chanting was not stopped by fines it was stopped when we collectively decided we would shame people making monkey noises.

how many of us lapped it up when scotty ran down the clock when we were a goal up? how many of the same people later came onto the boards or got irate when visiting teams did the same?

footy fans are hypocrites. to the point where the sport is going to have to rely on fifa for strong moral guidance. that says it all.

I just don't get it. They must know they will be found out from the first replay. Have you seen the way they check their hands for blood, it's absolutely comical. Thing is they don't seem to care

Chunky fines eh! Might cost a couple of our players a bob or two.....

Cesc Fabregas saying he was ''speechless'' was funny. Also Ramos blubbing.
