    Think it's terrible tbh. Causes big problems at lower levels, young kids reffing being abused by players and spectators. The impression seems to be it's condoned at the highest level.

    Drogba's case in the CL for instance - appalling. How he didn't get 12 months is beyond me.

    **** I'd have loved to have refereed that game. I'd have dropped him like a bad habit if he'd abused me like that.
    I agree completely except that Drogba's case was a little different. Not saying what he did was okay (bloody entertaining, but) but he was screaming down the cameras at the end of the match. IIRC it was mainly Ballack who acted up on the pitch towards the ref.

    Assuming we're talking about the Barca semi that is, otherwise ignore me

    edit, you know what I'm tired and I think I may be remembering it all wrong anyway, Drogba probably shouted at the ref before the cameras. Defo Ballack who chased the ref around the pitch though, created some hilarious gifs

    Haha Ballack, yeah may well have been him tbh. Just can't believe they put up with it. FMD, must be tempting for a ref to just send the lot off. Someone should do it, you only have to do it once or twice and no bastard would try it again.

    And apologies for raising it again. Of course, there's no issue. Should just sod off and play colonial sport.

    I was disgusted by that Italy-NZ game. I'd dive too and encourage my players to do so - there's virtually no downside. But if I were an administrator, I'd clamp down pretty severely on that stuff. No one likes it, it adds nothing and in fact hurts the sport severely.
    Several years a go in a league game in Italy, the team Perugia, their English striker Jay Bothroyd (ask Marc, he used to play for Coventry City), failed to take a dive inside the box when if he had of gone down, it would of almost certain it would of been a penalty, and his manager Serse Cosmi gave him a right bollocking for it.

    You two would have a lot in common.

    Another reason why Fifa won't ever do anything about diving is that it could result in high profile players missing big games. Imagine if some posing, preening **** like Christiano Ronaldo was sent off for diving in a semi final. They'd bend over backwards to make sure he could play the final, as it would reduce the spectacle or some such BS.

    As many have already pointed out, it would be so easy to introduce some kind of review system after games that could punish cheats accordingly. The fact that they don't do it, and just pay lip service instead, basically says that keeping it in the game is in their best interests.

    I think there's enough precedent to suggest that FIFA would not "bend over backwards" in that scenario. What with their refusal to overturn red cards etc. in the past.

    Not to mention the Rivaldo ban from a previous world cup when he was a star turn.

    When referees do book for diving they're often wrong on that too.

    Not needed mate. As has been mentioned before, if you're unhappy with something a mod has said please do report the post or email us (moderators@cricketweb.net), but being abusive to a mod - or any member for that matter - isn't on.

    I don't think they care that much. They still have the moronic two yellows suspension rubbish that means we have to do without the world-beating talent of Jamie Carragher tomorrow. These days players get yellow cards from nothing to cynically hacking someone down when they're in a good position (Italy and Germany specialties over the years).

    Rightly so. If the administrators have their head up their ass, it's not the fault of the players. You should do what it takes to win for your team. I'd have suspended him for a game.

    I think the bigger issue here is Jay Bothroyd getting a gig overseas
