RE: Poor sportsmanship in competition: I'm sick of it
You are viewing a single comment's thread:
They call it gamesmanship and you are right it is cheating and bad sportsmanship. See how far that gets you in other sports as a proper contact sport like rugby will make you a target and you will be seriously injured. How many times have we seen some footballer receive a slap or an accidental elbow and they drop like they have received a haymaker. One rugby player tried this a few years ago in an international match which the referee called him out saying this is not football and warned him. Footballers have come across as real woesies or pussies and it is there own fault as this is no longer a manly sport. I blame poor officiating or rather weak officiating to allow it to get to where it is as red cards should have been given to stamp this out.
Kikiki,gamesmanship they say. Rugby will do that? Football seems to be so different with @sports.guy55 mentioning as much as four other sports he has been involved in,yet not as dubious as football.
Yet @jasperdick brings in another angle.
I just think,nay I know that these dirty things in the field of play are offshoots of corruption in football which is systemic,so the player tries to survive anyhow,since he seems to be isolated from an opportunity to correct the system. And it's not even just about poor officiating. The officials have a leader, that leader has a leader...I'm saying the problem is traceable to FIFA itself, it's systemic.
In rugby if you play act you are dead meat as players will not put up with nonsense. You can die playing rugby and there is no time to play games as that would not be tolerated. One would be stupid to act like they are injured and are not or falling over because you have been slapped or pushed. Football is not seen as a manly sport anymore due to these antics.
Oh okay,I see on rugby. Indeed so different from the round leather game.
Hoping football addresses these flaws to it's very roots, everybody doing his own bit in rejecting what has now become a norm.
As far as I'm concerned even comments like ours,are part of the war against this cheat syndrome.
Best regards sir
I like the sound of this tactic of targeting anyone who tries to get fouls based on acting. That's mob justice right there and is likely more effective than any booking ever could be!
I have seen it first hand and it works. It may be harder in other sports besides rugby as there is not that much physical contact involved. When you are playing a sport you can be killed in there is no time for fake shit and cry wolf tactics. When you are injured you don't roll around and that is what the footballers fail to understand as that tells me they are talking shit again.
