Falling to the floor holding their face (add another 3 matches for screaming in agony at the same time).
Picking up the ball immediately the opposition gets awarded a free kick.
Standing over or by, or walking over, the ball for opposition free kicks.
Putting their arms up claiming a goal kick/corner which they know isn't theirs
Rolling over more than once when being tripped.
Waving imaginary cards at the referee.
Shouting/swearing in the referee's face.

Perhaps these may be viewed as a little harsh, but how much better could the game be with the cheating taken out of it?

Which others have I missed?

Two recent ones, both against England.

Scuffing up the penalty spot.

Moving the ball back 3 yards from the white line painted by the ref as Sweden did yesterday.
You may wonder why but it gave the free kick taker a better chance to get it over the wall but fortunately he was a hopeless shot.

Shirt pulling should be a 10 match ban.

Oh yes, the scuffing of the penalty spot.
I hadn't seen that before the other night.

Spitting at an opposing player, 5 match ban and a kick in the Alberts for good measure.

any kind of simulation/diving/waving imaginary cards at referees should result in 3-5 match bans for players. simples

I never got this 'give him a 5 match ban' argument.
A player gets a ban he still picks up his 100 bags a week does he not?
The answer is this.
Lets take wayne rooney.
Say he gobs off at the ref every week for the season.
Dont ban him cos he still gets paid.
Fine him instead.
Every time he gobs off, two weeks wages fine.
But guess what wayne. You are in the team next week.
SO he goes out the following week and gobs off again.
ANother two weeks wages fine. And so on.
Even with the limited intelligence of the average footballer the message would surely sink in eventually..
..wouldnt it?

I'd agree with most of these.
Maybe not the scoring against Sunderland though, there wouldn't many footballers left Laugh.

I agree too, it should be a 5 match MINIMUM and NO wages.

Biting an opponent.

A rarity in recent the last couple of years, but should be punishable by either a 3 year total ban or the guilty player has an option to wear a muzzle for every game for 3 years.

Substitutes only: pour water from a bottle over their head before they even get onto the pitch. What's that about?
Report STUDYFORM July 9, 2018 1:38 PM BST
A 10 second limit to goal celebrations too, otherwise everyone gets booked.

I like the muzzle idea, Jack. Ratboy could have spent 3 years looking like Hannibal Lecter's apprentice.

The sign of the cross is a good point, imagine if a player suddenly dropped to his knees and faced east!

Could we also penalise the fans?

Team is 5-0 down going out the competition, fans looks sad and miserable about it, fair enough.

Fan sees themself on the big screen and immediately bursts into a big smile waving at the screen.

The attacking team kicking the ball into touch and wasting a promising attack cuz Ramos or Pepe are rolling on the ground "injured in need of attention".  No sanction is too severe for the player kicking it into touch.

Taking off your shirt should mean you have decided to the team and must leave the game.
Any player who approaches the referee (other than the captain) gets to sit for 10 minutes in the naughty corner facing the wall (and i do mean a real naughty corner).

Pretending not to notice when substituted - then taking an hour and a half to "run" off (diverting to shake everyone's hand including the bemused ref) who's yelling "get off the feckin' pitch" - doing that ridiculous running on the spot action - all arms and going nowhere - a sure sign they are winning -
When they are losing they jet off the pitch so fast they'd give Usain Bolt a run for his money.
