Fairplay; that's what we try to show children by the use of sports. Be gentle with your opponents. When you make someone fall, go help him get on his feet. When a penalty is called against you, get the ball fast to the other team.

When the game is over, go home, watch television. See hockey players hit themselves for complete pleasure; see that baseball hitter run over the pitcher for that second throw to hit him; see that italian football player fake a fall, grab his knees, crying to death (and when a penalty is called against the other team, getting up and running faster than before to get to the ball).

Is that what we call hypocrisy ?
