The flop is why soccer will never be a primary sport in America.  Every thing about the flop should be distasteful to us.  A blatant flop should be reviewed and a penalty kick awarded for each one.

 

Also the raised arms screaming at the ref should be penalized with a yellow card.

 

That will turn that meow meow sport into something interesting.

The flop definitely takes away from the game. The Pulisic kid was getting hammered in (I think that was their strategy) but it got lost in all the other flops and moshing to the refs. 
 

And why do the refs let them argue every call before the yellow card or the final call? Even the NBA doesn’t allow that garbage.

Flopping is a major PG activity. 
tim starts flashing yellow cards and red cards to reward the behavior.

Didn’t Saudi Arabia check the population of Argentina before they went out and beat them? 

Did Liechtenstein beat India yet?

Soccer will never be a primary sport in America because it's freekin boring to watch.

 

And we got way too many other more entertaining sports to watch.

Disagree. Soccer is actually a pretty good watch. Certainly better than baseball and probably on par with basketball. Plus, no commercials and it's all done in two hours. 

 

The flopping is annoying though.

Neither one made it to the World Cup…despite their populations 

Did Jamaica make it?  One of their soccer players is robbing banks on Martha's Vineyard.

The game vs Wales has just gotten underway. Whether Team USA can advance from this game is to be seen. 

 

USA played well but Wales has a better national anthem and pulled even at the end,

both have 1 point more than Argentina who were beat by the saudis.

 

This is akin to the NY Yankees getting beat by a farmers league team.

 

Yesterday Japan beat Germany, strange times.

the rule is fairly simple, in the penalty area especially, if you touch the player before contacting the ball its likely to be a penalty. both attacker and defender know this but still get caught out.

 

Gareth Bale draws a few penalties because he is capable of the spectacular.

The rule is not what I am talking about…the unwritten rule where players are allowed 45 seconds to plead their case before play starts again is ridiculous, even by NBA standards

a question was posed. 

a point was being made. 

a discussion was invited. 

if you have to ask, well, that's your issue. 

 

 

and it is just a little creepy that you can respond within a couple of minutes of this being posted, you must be tracking my every utterance here even though you claim I am skippable. 

FnM feels vulnerable based on the rate you increase your post count. If you surpass him, he would have wasted nearly 25 years of his life.
