    How's this ? They fake cuz their sissies who love the attention and can't wait to take out their stupid sweaters at the end of a game. They don't only run all game they  do lots of walking too

    [/QUOTE]

    So... wasn't going to take the bait on this one, because I've had this conversation with many people who are ignorant of soccer. "Faking" happens in every sport. Every. Sport. If you think you're a "tough guy" (as opposed to those "sisses who love the attention") because you're a hockey fan, I'd be happy to provide you with video of hockey players diving to get a call. And they won't all be Canadiens videos (although to be sure the Habs would make up a good 75% of them Wink).

    It happens in basketball, hockey, football, soccer...basically any contact sport where the officials have to use their judgement to make a call. And the reason soccer players "dive" is the same reason basketball players flop under the basket, or why wide receivers fall down and throw their hands up (or make the "air flag" motion), or why hockey players fall down and grab their face when a stick gets near their face: they all do it to gain some kind of call/advantage for their team.

     

    Now, I don't condone diving in any sport. I've played soccer for 35 years and at a pretty  high level, and I can't stand the diving that happens, even if I understand it for what it is. The same is true of hockey, although I started playing later in life, it still makes me nuts when people flop and get away with it.

     

    So I would adivse you (and 49thparallel too Smile) to be careful about painting with a broad brush. Soccer is a pretty physical game, is played by some of the best athletes in the world, and has seen its share of gruesome injuries - without the benefit of protective gear.

    I appreciate all athlete's, but I think hockey players get a pass for traveling at 30mph when they fake over athletes who travel at 10-15mph. And the the % of soccer players who fake seem to be a lot higher. And how ANYONE who can enjoy a sport that has this

    Or

    Soccer is a horrifically boring game that involves a ton of walking around and flopping.

    If I were Paille, I'd find you and beat you for talking soccer on a Paille post. I still might find you just for talkin' soccer at all here (funny as it is.)

    I don't care how many youtube links you use. Soccer players, the sport & it's fans who go to them to create a bees nest are ridiculous! You should take this here. I'm sure you will find plenty of brain dead people there that agree with you.

    Re: Paille Update

    It doesn’t sound like Paille should be out for long however, and perhaps he could even be back in against the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre on Wednesday night.

    “The doctor told him he couldn’t go back in. I’m told it’s not very serious, but those are hard to comment on,” said Claude Julien to reporters following the game. “He felt pretty good after the game, so you never know. Hopefully it was just a minor bump.”
