A pet subject of mine for many years. It seems to me that only harsh punishment will change the players' behaviour. The referee should dish out a red card for a blatant attempt at diving and a referee commission should sift through the footage every week and ban players for serious unsportsmanship the ref on the pitch missed.

Fully agree! Especially that last would be extremely effective to get rid of it. Hopefully it will be done within 25 years :roll:

Thought I'd poke my nose in... This is part of the game, and as such should be applauded as a skill. Unfortunately that's what football has come to.
As for me, I'd like to see this done to them:

Why can players receive post match bans for tackles and punches (like dick joe Barton today) but not for Diving?

I don't get it!
