….and anti-diving whiners who think such behavior typifies soccer should also, for the sake of consistency :

a) consider college football a huge fraud if Bill McCartney is allowed a 5th down,
b) set their baseball caps ablaze with every phantom tag of 2nd base on a double play,
c) projectile vomit each time Manu Ginobili flops to the floor,

d) realize that Americans are hardly alone in their distaste for diving.
