Football fans call it diving.
Actually. It should simply be called cheating.
The whole diving scene is promoted by pundits on all the TV networks that perpetuate the myth that "winning a free kick" is acceptable.
We all know who the worst culprits are. They get the bird at most games but still nothing is actually done.
It's time that those same authorities clamped down and started banning serial offenders and then if their club can't stop it, start fining and deducting points.
Diving isn't simulation it's cheating.
