There is an interesting article about Paul Jewells (Wigan manager) thoughts on diving. http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=354268&cc=5901 He says its becoming an accepted part of the game. He also says that people either view it as 'gamesmanship' or 'cheating'. I call it gamesmanship, Ive always said diving is part of the game. I think it takes a smart, clever player to know how to simulate being fouled and if its good enough to fool the ref, than there shouldnt be a huge uproar about it. Of couse you hate it though when it happens to you, f'ing Rooney. But when your own player does it, hes considered clever. Pires isn't a cheater, he's clever "gamesmanshiper."
