The World Cup is full of AMATEURS!!!!! At least when it comes to flopping ... because none of the fake-injury-having, soccer cry-babies could hold a candle to the greatest of all time ... Vlade Divac

Vlade's former Sacramento Kings teammate Doug Christie was out in L.A. the other day -- when we asked how he thought the King of the Crumble would fair with all the fakers in Brazil. 

You gotta hear the kind of high praise Christie bestows upon Vlade -- it's clear, if there was a Mount Rushmore of Floppers ... it would only consist of Vlade, Vlade, Vlade and Vlade.

What the heck is this "flopping" exactly? Not a term I've heard outside the USA, and I've watched football for decades.

Kevin: Flopping is sometimes called simulation. When a player barely gets touch and flails around like he got hit by a truck. It is a disgraceful form of cowardice. "I can't beat you, so I will fake being fouled to win a penalty."

IMO any player caught flopping should be ejected for cheating. Attempting to deceive the referee is a form of cheating.
