 Subject: football faces of pain  Dear
 Colleagues, We are working on a project
 to automatically classify pain/non-pain faces in football
 players faces.  The idea is to build automatic
 classifiers to help the referees during world cup games
 distinguish "real" facial expressions of pain from
 "faked" expressions of pain, thereby helping to
 book players more fairly.  Our methodology was to
 gather expressions from world cup videos, and then assign to
 positive (real pain) or negative (faked pain) class based on
 whether the player in question stayed off the field/on the
 ground for more than 30 seconds.  Although we have
 found large numbers of negative class examples (see below
 for examples), we are having some difficulty identifying any
 positive class facial expressions.  We therefore seek
 input from the facial expression research community into how
 we can adjust our methodology while gathering this important
 dataset of facial expressions.    Thank you for your help with
 this matter,  Jesse
