Flopping

by Regis Boff

I consider soccer flopping the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) of sports. It is a spreading virus that is showing signs of entering my beloved NBA with its increase in 3 point shot falling down. I thought, wrongly it seems, that Black men were immune until very recently, (they being the last real men remaining on the planet),
This is a plague worse that Islamic terrorism. Although it may seem altogether too acid to suggest this early in the tournament but this flopping business actually began in Europe during the second world war. Certain unnamed countries , ( France etc) would quickly fall down and pretend to have been shot until the Nazis went away.Unknown
