I don't buy that. Whatever formation a coach uses, talent is going to win out. More likely, games at this level will wind up scoreless and go to PKs. I love football. But I hate it. It is mind boggling that people get so worked up over a sport where there is no scoring.
And yes, the diving is pathetic. It is so easy to spot that refs need to be more aggressive in handing out yellows to these people. And if someone is writhing on the ground in "pain" after being bumped into...PLAY ON!
