I tried... doesn't quite do it for me. The 2002 Brasil World Cup Team was mildly entertaining, but I cannot bare it. To each his own.

What about the flopping in football and basketball?

Does football suck when the counter pretends to get clipped on a punt?

Or in basketball when a center flops to draw a foul?

A punter flopping doesn't count. Technically, most of those guys are just soccer players anyway, so its in their DNA.

NBA players flopping is absurd and really detracts from their product, but the continuous action makes up for that somewhat.

The response about the punter likely being a soccer player is a good point, no matter how much you don't want to hear it.  It's more pathetic to flop in soccer because every single foul is precious, it can stop momentum and can change the game in that a player can get a yellow card and can be too careful to not challenge anyone for fear of getting a red card, and a flop can get an innocent player a red card and take the guy out of the game. 

It's worse to flop in soccer too, because there are MUCH fewer scoring chances in a soccer match.  In basketballl you have many more opportunities to overcome a guy that gets a foul because someone flops.

Don't get me wrong, I really don't mind soccer too much, but there is a reason why some soccer players are termed "foot fairies."
