NJReds and dabvu, you are both right in the players you select, but the fact that you can name the player, and in dabvu's case even the specific time shows that it is not that common of an event. There's not doubt it happens, but it also happens in (american) football, a contact sport. Its just a lot more noticable in soccer. To me, the biggest difference is that in soccer they don't just act like there was contact, they act hurt.
