Man, they are shameless floppers. If you go down like your leg needs to be immediately amputated, you should sit out the next ten minutes or something - after all, safety first.
Every time I watch, I am reminded why I am a bemused football observer and not a fan. The NBA took steps (somewhat unsuccessful, but still) to eliminate shameless flopping, why can't they do it in the Champ. Cup?
Dani Alves = shamless flopper. The rest of Barcelona not really. Henry sometimes. Iniesta goes down quite a bit, but he doesn't flop. It's more because players like him and Messi tend to draw a lot of fouls. But if you're insinuating that Puyol was flopping, that's absurd. And Busquets almost got his leg amputated by yet another horrendous, shameful Scholes "tackle."
