he admits to diving.

 

speaks well on it. seems a fair reflection of the way players think. it's rife. no one has the moral high ground on it really. not going to change it because it's more complex than players diving/not diving. shows incidents of players not going down and not getting decisions, and yellow cards for dives which aren't (including suarez).

 

it\'s the least hypocritical point of view to hold on this subject i think.

 

almost coming down to the fashion of the dive now. not whether you go down, but how you go down. young's face splash beyond the pale, but you're seeing players go down from that kind of contact all the time in one way or another.

he's arguably the best pundit out there...

 

hes weaker at in game commentary, but as a studio pundit he is generally spot on.

AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

WARNING - DO NOT WATCH THAT

 

He is actually a very good and very reasonable football pundet based on those 15 minutes. If he carrys on like that we may have to respect him (a bit) one day

 

EDIT - He is far, far better than almost all the ex-pros touting about in the media, based on those 15 minutes

he's a horrible manc c*nt. i don't really care what else he might be.

they should still be giving them retrospective punishment

 

1 game ban for 1st offence

 

2 games for the 2nd

 

and so on

 

i think getting into disseminating levels of contact opens a huge can of worms. there's a good example there of a player staying on his feet when there's a shirt pull. he's being fouled but doesn't get the decision. i don't think a game where there's no diving means it's suddenly more honest, it'll just balance the stretching of the laws more in favour of defenders.

 

you can't retrospectively award wrongly denied penalties.

no but you can ban perpetrators so they think twice before doing it again

 

 

I don't like diving, i'd ban play-acting t***s too

 

 

 

 

 

BAN EVERYONE! BAN MURPH!

Neville's bit was pretty good. And he (or rather Sky's team) highlighted the one where Suarez got booked although he had been fouled.

 

Whether he'll do a similar piece on why the FA has decided that this year's title should be decided on penalties, I don't know.

a spot on attitude

 

I'd never watch a cantona film

 

unfortunately I've seen Neville as a pundit and he is pretty good, I hate myself for actually thinking that

How can you call him reasonable when he says "Penalty? Yes?" about the Young dive.

 

he actually says "Dive? Yes. Penalty? Yes." i suppose you could just view it as an elaborate way of trying to substantiate the mancs' dubious penalty record.

 

i think as long as he is happy to concede the same thing every time a player looks for and gets contact with a dangling leg before falling over, no matter how easily, then fair enough. it's a consistent view. and just as, if not more, realistic as saying we need to outlaw diving completely.

 

the biggest issue in the game is that there is bias. bias in reporting and refereeing of these incidents. things like reputation, home crowds, big clubs come into it. i don't think that changes regardless of whether you think diving is part of the game or you don't.
