The holidays are a time for giving and love and good vibes, which is why today, we will be saluting the game's dirtiest fighters. 

Here we have a salute to the play-actingest, crotch-kickingest, red-card-receivingest scuzzballs to ever play the beautiful game. As this is a 50-item piece, we've got your standard-issue dirty tacklers, as well as your floppers, divers, play actors, bad-attitude-possessing players and just plain mean ladies and gentlemen.

If there's anyone we forgot or you have any thoughts on the selection, as always, have at it in the comments.
