  1. On the diving topic, for me it comes down to one thing. Diving is a pervasive problem throughout the sport. Retrospectively banning proved divers would go a long way to getting rid of the practice. There are benefits to the punishment outside the 90 minutes.

    Note: I’m talking about diving not embellishment. Exaggerating contact will be much harder to get rid of.
