    Tevez doesn't dive. He sometimes gives up on staying upright, but only after fighting for the ball for a good 10 minutes.

    Davids.... 1 out of thousands that have played and play the game professionally. You just made an amazing point huh?

    I think when I say "all players dive" I'm also including players of the team that my family has supported since the 1930's.

    So let's make a correction, all payers dive except Davids The Pitbull, which means 99.99999999% of them dive/has dived.

    I didn't see much girly diving in the Germany / Uruguay game, which made it an interesting game to watch. In fact, there has been a lot less crybaby flopping since Italy got knocked out.

    There was actually very little diving at this World Cup but rather a great number of players were knocked down and/or disoriented by the power of the vuvuzela.

    So we can conclude that Italy is worse than Vuvuzela ?

    Not to mention pasta, gold chains, wide gestures, mandolins and mafiosi.

    How are your sheep? All happy? :p

    You could have fielded ten plastic trumpets against us this year, we would have struggled hollding the draw.
