What they should do is fit players with a tazer so if the officials think the player has gone down too easily, they then taze him.

It's been trialled this week as it happened, Frank Ribery and the much maligned Didier Drogba both spotted having involuntary muscle spasms just seconds after hitting the deck.

As distasteful as it is, Drogba was merely doing a job for his team.

He won fouls, broke up play, frustrated the opposition and slowed the game down.  It was a tactic that worked from Chelsea point of view and was little different from Young's exaggerated fall at the weekend.

Easy to stop.  Refs shouldn't stop play every time he goes down.

I don't think Barca are the best team in the world because of their gamesmanship (to give it a name). In Spain it's not such an issue, but I'd like to think our game is a bit better than that, at least from the common man in the stands. It's clearly less of an issue though as time goes by which I find very sad.

sj re ashley young. Why would he dive? Look at the last penalty.....he is changing direction at speed. Contact is all it needs for the defender too put him down. Side stepping is great when you get past cleanly but if you get a nick its usually over and on both occasions he got nicked. Show me a player who would have been able to stay up and I'll say his name was probably Messi, the only one with the sort of balance and agility needed to stay up.

Dress it up how you like, speed , agility, light frame etc. But your comments and those of the PFA Clark Carlisle are an insult to the intelligence of football fans.

Well noticed, Rugby is indeed a different sport than football. Of course mostly it isn't impossible for football players to stay on their legs when they get touched lightly while running at full speed. Football rules and regulations just makes it more attractive to drop rather than to keep on running.
