An always controversial issue - this diving thing.

Robert Pires have been accused of it, so's Ruud van Nistelrooy & Crisitano Ronaldo, now Arjen Robben's the latest dive king.

And of course, there's a big list of "honourable mentions" of divers out there as well.

The purists say it's cheating, and realists say it's part of the game.

What do you think?

This brings to mind another question - The referee and linesman - are they BLIND to the playacting when it's obvious to us watching on TV? Are they just being anal in applying the laws of the game literally? Should there be more specific rules to guide the men in charge to handle these incidents, or should it continue to be left to *interpretation*?

If a Derby player does it and wins a penalty, it's psortsmanship :D

Someone does it against Derby it's disgusting cheating and he deserves to be hung :D

if Rooney does it everyone shuts the fuk up about it within minutes.

they all do it, until the refs start giving red cards for it though they will continue.
