(The blunt edge of rugby on the web)
Flanker, this is why I watch a lot less football/soccer than I used to. I'm old enough to remember teams like Liverpool, Nottingham Forest and Ipswich town in the early 80's who had tough guys on the pitch. I'm so sick of all of the bloody diving and simulation. Around the time of the 2002 FIFA world cup, there was a great Nike commercial with Eric Cantona that reamed out the modern footballer's for being a bunch of whining pussies. This spot is not too far from the truth.
I stand corrected, the spot was before the 2006 world cup:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jispSNXH518
