Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Fantasy Football has exploded since moving off the newspapers and onto the Interwebs. Nowadays every office lunchbreak has someone boasting about their league ranking or furiously trying to work out a last minute transfer.

With World Cup 2010 peeking over the horizon, a couple of bright chaps have come up with a pretty excellent twist on the typical fantasy football game - Fantasy Cheaters Football. Instead of a picking a team based on admirable criteria like assists and clean sheets, the aim here is to come up with 11 of the dirtiest players the world has to offer.


The genius points system takes into account diving, cynical fouls, waving invisible cards, stealing yards on throw-ins (a personal Spoiler peeve) and a whole range of other sneaky tactics employed by the beautiful game's worst offenders.

We've put together our own team of football's most talented bastards below (not thought of a keeper yet). Anyone we've left out?
