The second issue is a matter of consistency. Where is the sense in only reviewing or punishing these behaviours inside the box or after a red card? How is that an effective deterrent? Weíve seen plenty of free kicks leading to goals under dubious circumstances. Just last week the first goal in the Arsenal vs Spurs game was a dive by Sanchez. So...thatís ok because why?Itís just dumb. Do it right or donít bother.
I wonder if you'll see any retrospective bans being inflicted on Liverpool or United players this season?I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess no.
Wouldn't surprise me if they are. Tend to get more focus on their games so it's much harder for authorities to ignore a blatant dive if there is one. Much as Everton fans like to think the whole game is conspiring against us, it's not really the case.
I've said it for years now, referees should be looking at the foul itself and not whether the player being fouled falls over or stays on his feet. If they did that there would be no need for players to dive because they would be looking at what Dann does and whether it constitutes a foul.
Shall we place a bet?Whoever is proven wrong (as one of us will be by the end of the season, at the latest) has to be the other one's NSNO bitch for a week.
