...other teams? Sure. US plays about as straight up as any team I've seen in this WC.

But yes overall the BS faking is a tough part of the sport to take.

: The penalty in the box depending on type of infraction is way too punitive with a penalty kick when there are so few goals scored.

: It encourages not stop acting, and then up to referee mercy.

: Play for nearly 2 hours for 1 goal scored. Meanwhile countless crying, whining, and faking.

: Give me American football every day.
