This story's about a week old but I just read it today and it's truly a step in the right direction.
The Scottish FA will review video in an attempt to stamp out diving and fake injuries that slow the game down and are really a blight on the sport. The FA will hand out retrospective yellow cards to those deemed as having committed bookable offenses.
This is truly a revolutionary step forward and hopefully it will catch on throughout the world. I've always felt that the only way to truly stamp out diving was to go after those who did it. It's one thing to card a player during the match; a referee may bite or not. But if a player knows that he might get caught cheating well after the final whistle, he may think twice about diving.
Faking injuries really disturbs me as well. It brings the game to a crawl. I feel that if a player goes down and trainers have to go out to the field to tend to him, the player should be forced to wait on the sideline for at least two minutes before getting back on the field. That would cut down on fake injuries too, and if a player really is injured, he knows he'll have a couple of minutes to regroup before charging back out on the pitch.
Still, the latter is just my idea. The former is something that is already in place, and it's exciting that someone stepped forward and produced a real attempt at a solution for a problem that plagues the beautiful game.
