Is diving an accepted thing in football/soccer? It is a disgrace to see these grown men, ffrom all the countries, falling down like they have been shot, when they have hardly been brushed! All countries are guilty, some much worse than others. Is this accepted, because to me, this is a joke!

Ha ha Football diving could turn into a sport in itself - there should be a World Cup Oscar for the best dive!

This is madness and anoying for me and I dont really even like the game too much.

If the rules were changed to allow refs to watch instant replays of 'diving' episodes and they were allowed to red card anyone who was guilty of falling on purpose, the practice would soon come to a halt. Guaranteed!
