    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.

    amazing video bro loved it... this is a bit extreme but generally it becomes something tht develops inside u. U may wanna play Prince of Persia (2008) to understand "corruption"
