As a soccer fan I can understand the idea of going down to get a free kick.  I don't like it, but I can understand it, especially if you have a talent like Messi who can put a free kick into the goal up and over a wall of defenders.  What I can't understand is the rolling around, writhing in supposed agony, it's just embarrassing to watch.

SigmaAlgebra: More shredded knees and broken bones than concussions, to be fair. I am not advocating a return to the days of Norman Hunter and company, but I think there is a median to be found between that era and the one we have now where referees are so eager to blow their whistles that players find it worthwhile to dive upon any contact

The last thing you want is more players having their legs taken out.

All you need is the 4th official reviewing fouls and giving out cards for dives.  He's not doing anything most of the game anyway.  You don't even have to stop the game, he can radio to the ref that #8 gets a card for flopping 5min ago and it's done.

I say auto Red for a flop in the box.

UNC_Samurai: Chewy Luis gets a whopping 9 matches/4 months? What the fark, FIFA?

It's easy to justify anything when you're a group of corrupt assholes willing to do anything for the Benjamins.
