    Hypocrisy is saying one thing and doing another. it's different to a double standard, because it is the act of not following your own standards.

    Calling people hypocrites for holding different standards to different rules etc is going a bit far.

    I mean you can then argue I'm a hypocrite if I dislike drunk-driving because I often speed (I don't really, it's just an example ). It's not what hypocrisy is.

    Haha, wouldn't judging people differently for similar acts (i.e. cheating) because of arbitrary distinguishing criteria (lousy weak foreigners etc...) be hypocritical though?

    In any case, even if it's not, Murphy is dire.

    I don't think so. People who dislike diving may prefer a 'physical' game and hence not have the problem with cynical foulings.

    I mean we can really go down the line of semantics here but I guess it comes down to what Murphy says. If he slams diving for being 'cheating' then I suppose that is hypocritical. If he dislikes diving but is okay with other forms of cheating, that's not in itself hypocrisy.

    That's as far as I will concede. So if Murphy has condemned diving because it's cheating I will accept that it is hypocritical. But just because both are types of cheating doesn't mean condemning one and not the other makes you a hypocrite.

    That's all for today folks.

    Yeah, that is what I was getting at really.
