This summer, the World Cup comes to Brazil, the country that perfected the "Beautiful Game." You know what we say to that? Blah, blah blah, blah blah. A rich tradition of excellence is great and all, but the best way to get into soccer is to take an aggressive dislike to someone on not-your-team. You can have your fancy passing and your gorgeous freekicks; we'd rather spend our time screaming at these 14 divers, cheaters, and all-around dirtbags.
Arjen Robben, The Netherlands
Petulant is the word that comes to mind. Robben is a terror for defenders on the flank, cutting in from the right and ripping a shot with his left. But man, does he complain non-stop about fouls, perceived fouls, teammates who give him the ball in the wrong spot, teammates who don't give him the ball, pretty much everything. In the words of Officer Farva, he's the type of player who probably deserves to have his face punch-a-sized.
