I have never been a Soccer fan and this might be the main reason why... flopping!  These guys have it down to an art form and it's unfortunately part of the game.  A penalty can lead to a big advantage for your team so it's in the player's best interest to pretend like they just got shot with a gun.

But this example is shameful, I don't know if I could live with myself after this display of ridiculous over-reacting.  It takes so much away from the game and prevents me from every becoming a regular fan.
