I Am A Soccer Player, I Cry

From the "no shit sherlock" files comes this report from FIFA that soccer players fake injuries during the game to gain advantage or stop opposition attacks:

"At this World Cup, the deplorable habit that involves players staying down for no apparent reason after minor collisions, thus causing frequent breaks in play, was increasingly in evidence"

No kidding. It's the absolute worst part of the game and it's embarrasing. This commercial dubbed "The Secret Italian Training Camp" highlights how pathetic it's gotten :-)
