The excuse is, he went down to avoid the contact... bollocks...Sid wrote:Lots of people being soft on England's Wayne Rooney
It's a dive, end of
There is no contact and he goes down, so it's a dive
"He was getting out of the way of the keeper" you can do that without falling to your knees though, and then turning around to look at the ref and ask for a penalty
It's ridiculous, he just fucking dives. There's even a clear moment when he remembers to dive - after the contact was supposed to have hit
Watch it... he jumps over the keeper to dodge the slide... then just falls down... could have just as easily jumped over and stayed on his feet...
It was a dive... and to try and justify it, is to condone it... which is just as embarrassing...
