Having seen three games at the fourth and fifth level in Germany this weekend, and also recently seeing Didier Drogba's performance in the home game v Barcelona - namely the 'legitimate' tactic of falling over at every touch to interrupt the flow of the opposition's play - then I feel consideration should be given to just allowing a trainer onto the field (as they do in rugby) to attend to the player whilst the game continues.
I think this has three advantages
1. If the player is genuinely injured then he can be attended to more quickly
2. Particularly if the play is at the other end of the pitch then there is no interruption to the game. If the trainer and injured player are in the way, then stop the play and you are no different to the present situation
3. If the player is either faking an injury, or more likely over playing it when being 'hit' in the face, then he gains no advantage by his theatrics.
