FA introduce diving ban from 2017-18 Can't Post or Reply Privately

Players caught diving could be suspended under a new ruling by the FA. Footage of any incident will be reviewed after the game by a panel and if a player is judge to have dived then they will receive a suspension but will be allowed to appeal.

This probably is only for PL and EFL games since video footage of games lower down isn't always available. I'm assuming this doesn't apply to goalkeepers.

Feigning injury should also be included. Holding the back of the head when an arm has brushed the face deserves it.

Good example of "diving" at Luton this evening. Fortunately Blackpool overcame it and got a draw to win on aggregate.

The FA statement doesn't mention the word 'diving' it says: A new offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ will be in force. It will apply if an act of simulation leads to the award of a penalty and/or an opposing player being dismissed. On that basis feigning injury could be covered.

And theoretically players appealing for throw-ins that obviously should go the other way.

Though can't see it being used in such a way



Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

As no one is going to manage to gain a penalty or have an opponent sent off by making a patently false appeal for a throw in it would not be covered, theoretically or otherwise.

Good.

Proper humiliation of the guilty should follow, especially for the face-clutchers.

And the screamers. They could be made to wear the word 'cheat' on their shirts instead of their name for the rest of the season!
