Sounds a little low coming from someone who either taped or watched live EVERY SINGLE MATCH of the 2006 World Cup....
The flopping was often quite disgusting we should all watch and clamor for FIFA to adopt what is currrently being done in the Premiershiep THIS season. The rule is that will teams will play on despite all "INJURIES" and will stop the run of play only if the ref determines that the injury IS sincere and is also serious enough to merit the immediate stoppage of play to allow medical personnell onto the field.
MUCH MUCH MUCH smaterter policy and FIFA had better adopt it as their own for the European Championships coming up in a couple years as well as subsequent World Cups. This will move a L O N G way towards stamping out the play-acting injuries that oft-time sully an otherwise joyous performance of football.
::Yes, Christiano Ronaldo and Mikael Essien... I am looking DIRECTLY at you, and with a disapproving grimace on my face::
