World Cup 2014 Dives - Flops or Lightning?
Over the past few weeks, the 'Beautiful Game' has captivated the globe with its stunning displays of athleticism, stamina, footwork....and flopping! Yes, the drama a footballer brings to a fall is an art form in and of itself. With arms flailing, a player falls to the pitch, overemphasizing their 'injury', pausing for dramatic effect. With the ultimate final say, the referee can oft be swayed with a convincing dramatization, and this chance of a favorable call is what keeps the players tumbling with flair.
