Guess I watch a different team because the US flops and whines and fakes very little...

...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.
