    I just watched this:

    What is it with football and faking injuries? I know it happens in almost every sport, but it just seems to really stand out with this particular one.

    That said, it's a major reason why I don't like football- too much showboating and bad sportsmanship although I do admire the skills that most players have.

    NOTE: This is not meant to be a flame / flamebait thread. I'm just curious as to when football came to this stage and why.

    They do that so the others get flagged.

    That's all I know.

    This is what i call self-fault, it happens a lot, i do love soccer but sometimes some soccer players deserves an Oscar award for faking it.

    Haha, so true. To them, it's just another way of winning.
