World cup is happening and id like to get interested but to me its just too boring like slow motion hockey and the diving is epic,its a shame to have some games decided on how well a player fakes injury.

I know its ridiculous, it needs 5 second plays and more ads than playing time and cheerleaders. Yeah, thatll make it better.

Futbol/Football - the game played with the feet, not the hands - is fine without adds and cheerleaders. There are already plenty of beautiful cheerleaders among the fans. If anything, having a second referee on the pitch would be nice.

I agree with penalizing players who take those overly dramatic dives at the slightest touch. I call that the "Kick-and-Roll." The slightest kick sends some players rolling 4 to 5 times. Half the time, they don't know which body part to grab once they stop rolling. Interesting how the Kick-and-Roll phenomenon is practically non-existent in women's futbol.

Women have no desire to act like 11-year-olds.
