Ben Roethlisberger Admits to Selling his Flop - Sports Gossip
Big Flopper

During an appearance on 93.7 The Fan, Roethlisberger admitted to doing a little acting but said he thought it was in service of a call that should have been made.

“I got hit in the helmet, which is a call, and people are saying that I flopped,” Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “That was [Pierre-Paul], and he’s got that cast on his hand. And the hand that he’s got that cast on is the one that hit my helmet. So it rung me a little bit. You know, I might’ve went to the ground a little bit to sell it, but it definitely got me. So I think that’s a good call.”

 “It’s hard for the officials. What do you call? Body weight? If you hit someone with your head in their head, things like that, those are easy ones. But when you’re asking a defender to come full speed at a quarterback, wrap him up and tackle them, but you can’t land on them? Man, I don’t envy what they have to do or not do.”  

It definitely doesn't help the refs making the right call when QB's are flopping. Let's hope this doesn't become a common practice.
