Complaining about flopping in soccer is like complaining about burgers at burger king.
THE FORUM UPDATE KILLED THE GRADIENT STAR

Baltimore Orioles: 2014 AL Eastern Division Champions, 2017: 75-87
Baltimore Ravens: 2012 World Champions, 2017: 3-3
2017 NFL Pick 'Em: 52-39

Everyone in soccer flops, the whole sport is a joke

I've learned that for some reason it's "not okay" to complain about flopping in soccer and will typically get rolled eyes from Europeans.

It's like everyone passively supports this incredibly shameful act. Are Europeans just OKAY with it at this point? What kind of grown-ass adult can allow themselves to flop?

Who could possibly support it?
My God, it's full of stars!

Apparently you can't call a dive a dive on the off chance that someone is actually legitimately injured.

Missing the point must be your national pasttime

"See! Other sports have floppers too!"

Way to continue to passively support shameful sportsmanship

Keep crying about something that happens in pretty much all contact sport though. Cry loud enough and something nothing will happen

See post #12 for details.

you should be commending those guys for flopping

they are willing to look like jackasses to help their team win

that is a real winning attitude

put the team before yourself, not an idea you Americans would be too familiar with

Here's the difference between us two, pay careful attention to the words that I say:

It absolutely happens in other sports. It's shameful and disgusting when those players do it as well.

However, for the sake of practicality, we typically focus on soccer ("football" for nations-who-haven't-landed-on-the-moon), because the phenomenon is grossly more statistically significant, easier to identify, and thoroughly rampant.

Of course, some players, teams, and nations are more known for it (rightfully so) than others -- that is the benefit of specificity in further arguments. However, to deny the unsportmanship of flopping/diving and/or point at other sports, in which the phenomenon does indeed happen but not nearly to the same degree, is a blatant act of passive and sometimes active support of the act.
