Yeha, all the time. Especially in La Liga, kinda cool if you get away with it but it's not good for the sport. Kaka' and C. Ronaldo do this the most.

Yeah, I'm surprised that you don't know that rule. It is called 'diving'. Ring any bells? It's one of the biggest things in football at the moment, and they talk about it all the time on tv and radio etc. Obviously you can't be watching/listening to any football shows. So why are you writing on this 'football' site if you aren't interested in football!!!
P.S. You do know what "offside" is don't you?

I have no respect for people who dive. I just cant. they're playing wrong and ruining the game i think. They should just get on with the game. They are wimps and they want to get all the calls when one day when it really is a foul the refs wont call it and i'm gonna laugh histercally.

I don't remember that, I remember C. Ronaldo diving almost every game.

it was probably the worst officiated game in wc 2002. that and korea v spain. no wonder south korea made it so far, they had the matches fixed. i also wanted to ask this: there's a difference between going down easy and diving right? i don't mean falling when someone touches you, but like if you could have kept your balance, but you let them push you over, that's different than diving, isn't it?

I agree, I felt as Korea went far because they were at home.

Did anyone see Crespo's against Manchester United in the Champions League (Second Leg)? That was almost the perfect example of a dive. He just launched himself forward. I can't remember if he got booked. But I agree, disgraceful.

Hah none more so than Pires.

Arsene Wenger- "I didn't see it"

Lol pires should join the French olympic diving team.


Actually C.Ronaldo doesn't exactly fake a foul in my opinion, he just goes down too easily after a light touch sometimes. But then most of the time, players hack him down.
