    Have you heard linemen talk about what happens when they "huddle up" to recover a fumble? Pinching, crotch-punching - every dirty trick in the book is in use.
    And have you already forgot about the whole Saints-gate?

    Americans probably know better. This is the world stage and you have different ways of sportsmanship country to country. This type of behavior is expected when different characters from different parts of the world are on display.

    yea I've heard, but you hardly ever see it, all I am saying is that soccer is starting to take off in the states, and you are seeing several high profile cheap shots.

    There have been some terrible corner kicks this World Cup.

    Netherlands still my pick to win. And everyone is jock-riding Robben to the fullest. He's my least favorite on the squad. All the talent in the world, but his play style annoys me. Constant diving and throwing his body all around.

    I'd take Depay and V. Persie both over Robben.

    As for soccer being nasty- it is. But so is the NFL:

    For instance...





    Then there are junk-punches/grabs, etc. Hockey is really bad about it. And then basketball has a lot of dirty stuff too.

    was it the Jest that had the double flop last year?

    that was some funny crap. The 2 DBs looked at each other and they both collapsed onto the carpet - LOL
