There was no way that was a dive. He had zero reaction time to have made that "look worse than it was" because he wasn't even looking when Boll came roaring up behind him and smashed into him, he went flying forwards uncontrollably. I was definitely disappointed in the refs for only calling a minor on that one. All I can say is that I'm glad Jordin is alright.
