    Like Ronaldo before him dinho has gotten lazy and complacent a few years back and put on some weight. He's still crazy talented but he's no longer an elite player.

    • Oh ok I get it, so I guess he can't even earn an honorary spot. I'm sure though that Brazil is loaded with young talent which will compete harder.

      • Kinda crazy to say when you put it in perspective, but Brazil has never really needed Ronaldinho. They have talent on talent, and they take the most dedicated team players. Horsey was always about partying and getting laid which is why he has lost a step in club play and is now a memory in International play.

          They may be taking the most dedicated guys now, but Ronaldo was always about the partying and fame and they kept bringing him along until he started running the risk of type-2 diabetes.

            The only difference between them is that Ronaldo performed like the best striker in the world regardless of what he did the night before. Ronaldinho got himself into trouble countless times with the coaching staff because he looked like **** on the field due to his partying.

            • Well, Ronaldo was not a great player by any means before the last world cup........it was a selection made mainly on the past. Kind of surprising they didn't do the same with Dinho considering he has been in pretty good form for Milan this season.
              When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

                  Sad Panda is sad. :(

                  But not all that surprising right now. I think if he was able to comeback at all it would have been miraculous. I'd rather this than have him force himself and try to play when he's not ready.

                    Ronaldo was still a beast at the WC but he had definitely seen his play and consistency at the club level faulter because of his partying and ever expanding waste.

                              I can imagine. They always have great talents on the field.
