Do you consider football to be a "macho" sport and do you believe that most players try to project a â€œtough guyâ€ image? I am completely opposed to footballers who attempt to hurt their opponents (i.e. those who are not averse to bone-crunching tackles or engage in violent conduct), but I donâ€™t mind â€œpestsâ€ like Van Bommel and Dario Silva who are difficult to play against due to their ability to break up play and uncompromising demeanour, as they are not brutal and have no intent to injure others. Do you have any favorite players who could be considered â€œhard menâ€ (in a positive sense)? Are there any footballers whom you find annoying due to their dangerous/overly physical play and wish that they could tone down their act?
