A hard competition between the Inzaghi brothers and Totti but I chose Pippo.

Totti or Simone Inzaghi...let's say Inzaghino. At least Esposito of Cagliari and Tedesco of Reggina are right there with them, though.

Di Canio dives quite rarely...from Lazio Pandev or one of the Filippini twins is the biggest diver.

The way he "met" the leg of Palombo during Lazio-Samp makes him a professional of the dive/cheat in the PK area. He is a refined diver not a blatant diver. :D

Simone by far. Pippo doesn't dive half as much as he did during his Juve days

Oh you had a personal grudge. :)

Yeah, he did seek Palombo's leg with that run. But he really doesn't do things like that often...and after Samp got that phantom penalty he had to try it, didn't he? ;)

Nedved and Inzaghi by far.

Simone Inzaghi by far. Pippo's doing it a lot less lately (presumably because he's been playing a lot less :D) but everytime I see Simone he's flying.

Inzaghino would rather dive than shoot on goal. At least with Pippo it's the other way round. ;)

Nedved comes in second, because he not only dives but stays down to make sure the opponent is carded. Low, very low.

Third is Totti, who goes down before he's fouled, but at least you know he was indeed going to be fouled. He's a preemptive diver. :D

Wow, S. Inzaghi seems to be the runaway leader here, a notion with which I fully agree. He actually had the potential to be just as good as his brother but is totally obsessed with diving.

Well petite Inzaghi got all of the acting ability but none of the skills that his brother has. Can't be easy for the poor guy.

Totti's a bit of a diver as well isn't he. But as Ruffian has correctly pointed out, he's almost always fouled in the midst of going down so that does validate the going down a bit.. :D He's just a smart footballer player who knows when an illegal tackle is coming in so he just makes sure it's given. For Simone Inzaghi, though, he's got nothing much else in his repetoire of skills..
