Melodramatic Chilean Linesman Goes Down Like Sack Of Spuds After Having Ball Kicked At His Thigh (Video)

As far as football is concerned, the age of the wimp is truly upon us. Players are mollycoddled from such an early age that none of them know what genuine pain is any more, hence the reason most of them spend all game screaming in agony.

That’s our theory anyway.

Sadly, it would appear that the scourge is now spreading to the officials, with Chilean linesman Carlos Echeverria hitting the deck like a sack of patatas during the recent game between Huachipato and Palestino after having a ball poked against his thigh from close range…

Stayed down too!

Pathetic. Totally bloody pathetic, and a minor symptom of a much wider, more ingrained epidemic.

*Sigh* What is football coming to?

    Hideous. This has nothing to do with being weak, a wimp, a wuss or whatever other words can describe someone who is scared.

    This is PURE DECEPTION. And now the fucking officials are at it!

    Why? Just WHY?

    It truly does enrage me, and it sickens me to the core.

    If it doesn’t stop soon, it will become the norm. Much like taking the ball into the corner in the 91st minute.

    It will be ACCEPTED.

    Can you imagine that?

    So that’s where Rivaldo ended up. Running the line in Chile!

    Good grief! And the idiot referee red carded him!
