And that's a nice sob story Vaxjo. But He goes down easier then a hooker at a bachelor party...you could flick his nose and he'd crumple to the ground screaming because he thinks its broken lol
Ilya Kovalchuk was a defensive train wreck when the Devils acquired him. But before we stray too far...

I don't agree with what Vaxjo said. Does Suarez dive? Yes. Does he do it more often than his peers? That's debatable. He gets more attention than many of them because he is more talented. More talented athletes in any sport are the ones under the magnifying glass.

Diving is a tactic of footballers everywhere. The penalties it brings put teams at an advantage. If everyone on your team were boy scouts and didn't go to ground, you would be at a disadvantage. That doesn't make it any less frustrating to watch, though.
