Unfortunalty cheating has and always will be apart of the game. Defenders trash talk and play very physical to try and make attackers lose concentration and attackers dive hoping to get a call in their favor. It will always be like that because it always has been like that. Football or any other sport requires having an edge on the opponent (besides with skill) and thats how football players get an edge.

Of course Messi can be stopped. All you need to do is get a good Outside back and keep him isolated at the wing and force him to pass into the center and have your Center backs intercept them and clear that sh*t. Or just play his puny ass physical by sticking someone like Terry or Gattuso on him and just keep battering him until he starts to whine and breakdown. Players can only take so much. You can knockem down a 100 times and they will get up a 101 so knock em down again. :twisted: And if you say that he is to quick and agile to be knocked down, wrong, in pro football it is about respect or no respect they either try to mark him the honorable way or they slide in hard trying to hurt him. Just get into his path and hip check. Hip checking with good technique is a good excuse and way to truck someone.

More or less if I were a pro defender and I had to mark Messi I would just keep on hip checking him, step on his feet, hack his ankles, and talk smash to him. On the field it's a war, there are no friends on the battlefield, but when it's over, shake hands and say good game.

I've said it before, Messi will be stopped by the Maradonna syndrome, that is to say, he's already proven that he's a cheating, diving, lying scuntrag, so it's only a matter of time before he starts taking cocaine and eating Micky D's every day. He can't help it, it's in his blood.
