Now Even Soccer Refs Are Flopping? This Is Ridiculous (Video)


No sport is more forgiving of flagrant flopping than soccer. And now, it appears that the very people who have been put in charge of stopping it, the refs, are getting in on the sweet, attention-craving action.  Here we see a ref take a sideways tumble for no particular reason, perhaps due to a cramp, or maybe because he was feeling vulnerable.

The ball hit the ref in this Chilean game in the thigh, but it doesn’t seem to be an impact proportional to the response he makes. Take a look:

I’d like to believe that the tumble was genuine (not that I wish the guy any harm), just because it seems too damn bizarre otherwise. I mean, can someone give HIM a red card for that?
