One of the complaints that I hear about soccer is that there is too much flopping. A lot of meat-and-potatoes fans don’t think it has a place in sports — the same ones who tune into Duke basketball with vigor. Irony alert!
In this case, however, I am going to side with the anti-flopping camp.
Brazilian midfielder Sergio Escudero shows us just how painful the linesman’s nylon flag can be — if you use your imagination.
