Why doesn't FIFA do something about diving/players abusing referees?
Serious question here. People will give answers of FIFA being run by a bunch of spineless beaurocrats (which may or may not be true) but they will obviously act in their own interests most of the time.
It would be so easy to do something about abusing and surrounding the refs in particular. Only allow the captain to approach the referee and yellow card anyone else who does so. It'd quickly stamp out all the ridiculous intimidation of referees that goes on. Why don't they do it? Am I missing something really obvious.
If football got rid of its reputation of being full of overpaid ****s that dive, cheat and abuse referees, it'd probably have an increased fan-base, so why don't FIFA do it? It'd surely be in their interests...
