    Icon13 A Perfect 10

    The thing I don't enjoy about Soccer is the constant diving, is the ref allowed to yellow card a player for deliberatly taking a dive?

    Although the way we Aussies tackle they may not be actor when they go down

    Yeah, they are. Unfortunately most referees have enough issues getting real fouls right...

    Avery's 2nd challenge...

    Grella got one amazing tackle in though. Came in ridiculously hard and absolutely crunched Nakamura front on but had nothing but the ball. Nakamura went miles while Grella just stood up with the ball

    I just hate the general softness.

    They take a tiny knock to the face and they're all over the deck wanting treatment.

    It's not being soft though. It's being cheats.

    They do it in union as well. The forwards always have a lye down so their team gets a rest. Footballers do it so their team gets a foul.

    Some don't see it as cheating, some think it's part of the game. Maradona has described his famous handball as "a subtle chess manoeuvre" and I'm not sure many Argentinian fans would disagree with him, it's a cultural thing, beating England this way was something to be proud of, and I can sort of see the logic behind it.

    The diving and fake injuries are certainly the worst part of the game, by a long way.

    When Mansfield played Macclesfield, we were down 3-0 and 3 times late on we made a tackle and their player went down and stayed down for awhile...we thought they were play-acting, then it turned out one guy was actually then out for 6 weeks.

    There's a fine line of interpretation and it's almost impossible for a referee to not make a wrong decision during a match, especially when some players really big up the nothingness of a tackle.


    At least it cost him 5 grand....

    Roberto Rojas, and it happened during a qualifying match for the 1990 World Cup.

    The blood was indeed genuine, and it was indeed his own. Chile were losing 1-0 in Brazil, a game they had to win, when Rojas fell to the ground with blood streaming from his face. The game was abandoned.

    The wound, however, was self-inflicted as was later proved. Rojas was banned for life and Chile received a suspension from the following World Cup.

    How is for example that saints player going down like a girl after Barry Hall 'tapped' him in the semi last year, any different from Nakamura going down from a cruching tackle from Gella. Its all the same thing, just some Footballers do it more often.
