    That bang on about diving and what not in football.

    Ever seen a football player use fake blood?

    Was reading somewhere that feigning injury is fairly widespread in rugby, and this has just lifted the lid off it.

    You think those poncy footballers would allow themselves to get in a position where they might get blood (even of the fake variety!) on their shirts....

    But football is supposed to be a non contact sport, Ronaldo has gone so incidences of players falling over like they've been shot should drop by about 80% this season.

    Yeah, I'm missing the essential footballing skill of being able to avoid a high flying boot while tackling

    It's not a full-contact sport though is it? Not like rugby, ice hockey or lacrosse...
