    I think is instint too. Just unlucky Ghana miss the chance.
    If you guys saw the match against Sooth Korea. Saurez 2nd goal is nice.
    Even if it's instinct, I think it's wrong to brag about it. Just be happy that he got away with it with just a red card, dunnid act zai say simi hand of god

    Generally, through the responses in this thread. I feel that Singaporeans are too upright - play by the rules and sportsmanship. Lost the basic survival instinct. Throw into an environment, without the protection of rules and policies, sure first to die one.

    I am watching a documentary about Taiwanese businessmen in China. One claim in hokkien, "I am not literate, I only know when to grasp the opportunity". I think the case for Singaporeans are the reverse. Everything must be laid down properly in black and white.

    I would think your mind was made up on the issue even before you started this thread

    You're entitled to your opinion of course, but I don't really equate playing by the rules and sportsmanlike conduct with a loss of survival instinct. There are ALWAYS rules (many are unwritten). Indeed the survival of the human species owes a lot to the development of language and the subsequent ability to define rules and laws -- before that, the biggest caveman would just do what he wanted. More and more we're discovering that social animals (e.g. a pride of lions) has a set of 'rules' that benefits the continued survival of the species, and not just the alpha male.
    Similarly, it would be in the interest of football as a whole if the rules improved to eliminate cheating (yes, I know it will never be perfect). The more cheats get away with it, the more disenchanted the viewing public will get.
    Can we call the increased use of performance enhancing drugs in sports an issue of survival instinct? Sure, but at what cost. Look at the Tour de France.
    Or should we chalk up the attack on Nancy Kerrigan (ice skating) to an overabundance of survival instinct on the part of Tonya Harding?

    BTW Singaporeans cheat all the time -- how many drivers do you know who have not added a few minutes (or not so few!) when tearing their parking coupons tabs?

    Luis Saurez is definitely way smarter than players who try to use their heads to reach the ball...
    but come to think of it, he really has very poor sportsmanship!

    Why everyone in the world have praised Maradona, but cursed Luis Saurez for his "Hands of God" ?

    It's a bit unfair, isn't it ?
