It's all because of the rules. It's the only sport where a player can be ejected from the game and cannot be replaced, giving the other team a permanent power play. So, it encourages dives.

I didn't know Tom Brady plays soccer too.

Wow.  So soccer really is gay.  And here i thought i was just being prejudice.

Re: The Violence in Soccer HAS GOT TO STOP

So it's boring AND ridiculous.  Can someone be ejected if they're caught diving?

There's an easy way to solve that.

Sha-zam.

(Announcers are wrong on this one... you can hear "unsportsmanlike conduct" was called on Thornton, not "roughing". They called the slash, and still called diving on the dude that got slashed. Love it.)

Down by 2.
Ten minutes left.
Ball goes out of bounds and.... the ball boy jumps on it? He won't give it back. He's a fan of the leading team and an INCREDIBLE DOUCHEBAG. He's keeping the ball way from the opposing team to kill the clock.

Then it gets weird.

And I thought diving was strictly for players.

Nice try. Cry all you want, Mojofinger. No one cares...
