Hilarious Flop Leads to Kaka’s Red Card

Brazil beat Ivory Coast 3-1 Sunday guaranteeing themselves a spot in the Knockout Stage. They were up 3-0 thanks to two goals by Luis Fabiano, one that could have involved the use of his hands, and the other set up by Kaka. Kaka was sent off in the 87th minute after getting his second yellow card which resulted in a red card. Ivory Coast’s Kader Keita ran into Kaka and flopped but somehow the penalty was called on Kaka. Check out this video of Kaka’s red card, the result of an embarrassing flop job:

All I have to say is it’s a good thing Shaq wasn’t on the receiving end of that flop otherwise you have no idea what might have been said.

Give Andrei Kirilenko an Oscar for This Flop Against Dirk Nowitzki

It’s kind of hard for me to believe that a Dallas team that’s 17-12 and playing good ball would lose by almost double digits against Utah. Consider that Paul Millsap, Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur are all hurt, leaving the Jazz with a starting five of Deron Williams, Andrei Kirilenko, Ronnie Brewer, Kosta Koufos, and C.J. Miles, I really start to wonder. You could certainly do worse for a starting five, but that’s definitely not the Jazz’s best lineup. But when you see Dirk Nowitzki getting called for an offensive foul on a play like this and then you see that he later got ejected for a love tap on Matt Harpring, you figure something may have been up with the refs. Check out this brilliant acting job by Andrei Kirilenko that got the call:

I’m telling you, I hardly think about this despite the Tim Donaghy stuff, but a nine point loss for Dallas, a 10 free throw disparity, and Dirk Nowitzki getting ejected doesn’t sound right to me. If I didn’t know any better I’d say the refs had some action on this game.
