So what you're saying is either the league is ******** for implementing rules and telling the refs not to call them, or the refs are ******** for not calling the rules?

If he's such a diver that he's recognized as a diver, he'd have more then 1 diving penalty. If his "dives" were not worthy enough of penalties, then he shouldn't be labeled a "diver" and have calls go against him with bias. Just like if i was gonna call someone hitter, i'd make sure they have more then 1 hit in 3 seasons. If the hits weren't big enough to register as a hit(like his dives not being blatant enough to register a diving penalty), then i'd have to think twice about calling him a hitter(or diver), no?

I don't know how you can defend the ref here. It's not even about the play/non call. It's about his claim. Either he's a diver and he should get diving penalties, or he's not and don't call him one. You can't have it both ways.
