The Flop

Michael Lynch of Australia's The Age has an interesting take on the role of diving / flopping in our game. This is part of our on-field culture that we'd rather not talk about, and its going to hear about the sport's governing bodies trying to find ways to crack down on it.

The phenomenon is definitely not limited to soccer (check out this article about all-time floppers in my other favorite sport), but diving is a lasting image of mine from the last World Cup. It's just one more stop from flopping to utter whining that sometimes gives soccer players the bad sportsmanship reps that we'll occasionally hear.


Stop the flop!
