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.
Luis Suarez, Uruguay
The forward is a biter and a malcontent who famously received a suspension for making racists remarks on the field (an activity usually reserved to the grandstands). He also happens to be one of the best attackers in the world, the type of player who makes your jaw drop once, twice, or three times a game with the audacity of the move he attempts and the skill he shows pulling it off. Suarez is an ass, yes, but he’s also one of the most entertaining players on Earth. Oh, and he’s a diver.
