    Who's the Worst 'Diver' in Soccer?

    My vote goes to Pipo Inzaghi (sorry, paulie)

    I hate this guy with passion. He either scores, or fakes a foul and gets the penalty call. It's sad, because on talent alone, I'd put him in the top 10 in the world, even though he's getting old. Always in the right spot, right time.

    Pippo is a pretty flagrant diver, you're right.

    He's no where near as bad as C. Ronaldo, though. The kid is extremely talented, but if anyone gets near him his first instinct s to get a face full of grass. Not a good habit when you have a long, successful career ahead of you.

    Good call. I thought he'd calmed down with that crap after the World Cup incident with Rooney?

    In any case, he's in the running for player of the year.

    Chrissy Ronaldo gets my vote, but I watch a lot more of the prem than any other league...Emmanuel Eboue is pretty bad with it as well though, which is sad because he's a defender...

    I'd definitely say Cristiano Ronaldo...and probably throw the rest of the Portuguese national team in there. Bunch of whiners and divers on that squad.

    The Portuguese team is shameless, good point. They top Italy and everyone else as far as diving goes.

    Good call. They deserve an honorable mention for team effort. Playing them has become torture to watch.

    Deco can be a baby when he wants to.

    Definately Ronaldo and Drogba as well!
    Remember when Ronaldo did it to English wonderboy Wayne Rooney who was shown the red card because of it..? I think it was in World Cup and he had to go back to United afterwards...LMAO! That was great!
