There is this thing called good sportsmanship and thats not part of it. But thats right playing the game the right way isnt cool. multiple top level teams from Italy were just sent down to the second league due to multiple match fixing and bogus ref assignment scandals. Thats why its a disgrace to have Italy has the World Cup Champs. The country itself is ok but the soccer program is a bunch of bums, racists, and plain crooked guys.

Baiting is part of sports. That's all it comes down to in my book. You call it bad sportsmanship (as if headbutting a player in the chest is not), I call it part of sport. To each their own.

IMO and in my experiences people that talk trash are bums that usually cant back it up. Shut your mouth get out there and play. Whooping the hell out of the other team is good enough. Ask Troy or Fitzy in AZ. No need to talk trash, just makes you looks stupid.

My thoughts exactly. I've seen Mario Lemieux talk trash. I've seen Hines Ward talk trash. I've seen high profile and well respected athletes talk trash in all sports. The idiots are the ones who take the bait and cost their team. Like I said..........tennis or golf.

It's still odd to me that some automatically know what was said on that field (as if it matters). Were they standing next to both players? It's a joke.

By the way, I also recall Troy losing it last season and costing this team 15 yards. Anybody else remember that? When he shoved the ball into the face of an opposing player. Was it a dumb move? Sure. He was baited and he took the bait. It's part of the game. Who knows what was said and done? Doesn't matter though. Somebody baited him and he took it. Hopefully he learned from it and realized that talking trash (no matter how harsh) is part of the game. Maybe baseball, tennis or golf is more "proper" for some.

Hell, while we are it.............

I've seen............

Michael Jordan talk trash

Jack Lambert talk trash

Jerome Bettis talk trash

Wayne Gretzky talk trash

Mohammed Ali talk trash (I must be kidding right?!?!!?)

So we covered two of the greatest and most respected hockey players of all time. We covered the greatest and most respected basketball player of all time. We covered one of the greatest LB's in NFL history. We covered one of the greatest RB's in NFL history. We covered one of the greatest boxers of all time. The list can easily go on.

I can see it now......................

Jack Lambert: "Well Mr. Poop head, I'm just going to come over there and tackle your little behind."

Roger Staubach: "Well you just try Mr. Pee pee head!!!"

Gimme a break.

One thing I was glad to learn was that none of the players were ever accused as being part of the scandal. It was all team officials buying out referees to steer the games in certain directions. So the system was corrupt for sure, but at least the players weren't throwing games.

If you play international soccer, you're going to hear some of the worst things imaginable on a daily basis. It probably would've been even worse had America made the finals. Soccer's an intense sport...the fans and players are crazy.
