    Watch People Flopping Like Soccer Players in Everyday Life (Video)

    We’ve become so desensitized to flopping in soccer (and basketball) that we just consider it part of the game now. No longer is it a trait that’s definitively “European.” And that should sadden us, because flopping is ridiculous and cheap. It’s also very funny. Funny because it’s not like athletes are stuntmen who know how […]

    Amateur Soccer Coach Pulls Shakespearean Flop (Video)

    The art of the flop is always subject to refinement and evolution, and now it’s taken a German (?, possibly Austrian) soccer coach to take the flop to the next level. It’s unusual enough for a coach to do this kind of thing rather than a player, but this guy adds such a theatrical flair […]

    Last year the NBA instituted a series of penalties for floppers, and it resulted in 13 fines, including eight in the playoffs. Players get fined $5,000 for the first offense, $10,000 for the second, $15,000 for the third, and $30,000 for the fourth. Has this reduced the amount of flopping? Of course not! Players who […]

    Listen everybody, you may want to sit down. What I’m about to tell you might come as quite a shock. Last night, during Game 2 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals between the Pacers and Heat, LeBron James, the greatest basketball player on earth, flopped to draw a foul. Go ahead. Pick your chin up […]

    Flopping Youth Basketball Player Obviously Watches Too Much NBA (Video)

    Earlier today we showed you a mix tape featuring the prodigious ball-handling of 8th grade basketball player Jordan McCabe. It was awesome, and you should go watch it. However, before you go do that, you might as well take a look at this video starring another kind of young basketball prodigy. We don’t know his name. […]

    LeBroning is the First Great Sports Meme of 2014 (Videos + GIFs)

    Everybody knows LeBron James is a flopper. He can deny it all he wants, but this isn’t some theory. Nobody has reasoned that the man flops. We’ve all seen it with our own eyes. Not once… Not twice… Not three times… Not four times… Not five times… Not…well, you get the idea. Dude flops all […]

    21 Ridiculous Football Flopping GIFs

    To be honest with you, I never really thought this list would be possible. Flopping? In football? American football? “Ridiculous,” I would have said in 1990…if I weren’t just a kid. But alas, unless you’ve been living under a rock (and that rock doesn’t have the NFL Network), you know that flopping has become a […]

    17 NHL Players You Just Want to Punch in the Face

    You know what I love about hockey? I love the way certain players just piss me off. I know that sounds crazy, but I really do. “Hating” other teams and players, which isn’t real hate (usually), is fun. It gets your blood pumping and your juices flowing, and that makes you feel alive. Can players […]

    You know what’s really great about LeBron James? He’s complex. You can’t just slap one single label on the guy. He’s not just the greatest basketball player on earth, or a big whiny baby, or a nice guy, or a douche bag, or a hero, or a villain, or a clutch shooter, or a choke […]

    More LeBron James Flopping Parody Videos? Yes Please!

    Sometimes I wonder whether we’re being too hard on LeBron James. I really do. I mean, when it comes down to it, he actually seems a lot nicer than Michael Jordan. So why do we give LeBron such a hard time about his character even though we basically gave Jordan a free pass? Then I […]
