While watching World Cup coverage and watching players writhe on the ground in agony after collisions the slow mo playback reveals never happened I'm reminded of other moments in sports where a player took a dive in order to have a foul called on the opposing team. The referee has to make a call the moment it happens and, lacking the benefit of multi-angle replays, can often be suckered into calling a foul incorrectly. A player crashes to the ground, apparently tripped by an opposing player. Foul! Only the camera shows later that no part of his body ever made contact with the other person. A player has his arms outstretched preparing to take a shot when another player runs neck first into his arm. It may look like a deliberate clothesline but it isn't. I'm not an avid sports fan so my questions to those who are is just how often does this happen? Are there teams or players who are notorious for this tactic? When did you start to notice that game playing was becoming just as important as playing THE game? Isn't this anathema to true sportsmanship?
