The acting skill of footballers is legendary, whether it's Cristiano Ronaldo being knocked to the ground by mysterious forces, or Zidane pretending to be offended at the suggestion of his sister's loose morality, just so he could experience the sheer joy of headbutting an Italian. Calling out players who cherish the Golden Globe above the Golden Boot: The Diving Board.
Just launched by a group of fed-up footie fans, the Board seeks to improve the beautiful game by showcasing clips of potential divers, passing verdict on the legitimacy of their crashes to the pitch, and allowing Joe Public to do the same via a simple "Yes" or "No" vote, though these are occasionally spiced up, i.e. February 5th's "Yes", "No" & "Who the f**k cares, Man Utd. lost".
Precious moments of straight-up faking-it include Aaron Lennon snatching up a penalty against Bolton simply by letting gravity do its work ("Justice is served as Van Der Vaart puts it wide"), and Porto's James Rodriguez tumbling after a light shoulder tap, prompting the Board to wonder "maybe Maxi Pereira knows some military-style pressure points", though that's just pure Spock-ulation.
Less clear-cut are Blackpool's Luke Varney hitting the grass against Man U's Rafael, actually declared a clear foul by the Board, but not by the public; and Newcastle's Leon Best snagging a penalty against Arsenal, drawing Board castigation but public acceptance, probably Owen to the fact that they're used to seeing Newcastlers go down easy
The Board's also compiled a hall of "Classic Dives", where you can watch Blackburn's Penderson check behind him just to make absolutely sure he's a foot clear of any other players before just plain falling over, and Lampard laughing at the aforementioned Ronaldo as he skips nimbly over his feet, only to be felled by thin air -- apparently no tougher than the slightly-harsher-word-for-prostitute that is your sister.
