If you're going to criticize the diving then you're free to change the channel. Deception is a part of any sport. The problem with the American soccer fan (besides the elitism) is that they think they can barge in on the world game and all of a sudden change the things they don't like. The IFAB has taken appropriate measures to reduce embellishment. These kinds of changes are evo not revolutionary. Be patient and take baby steps.

Be happy your dreams will come to fruition with goal line technology for the 2014 world cup.
What did the IFAB do to stop embellishment and diving? I must've missed it.

And it wouldn't even need a rule change by the IFAB to stop this crap, but merely a change of policy by FIFA to allow post-game reviews of dives and handing out suspensions for it.
