Default Taking dives in football

I don't know if there is a thread about this, but this happened during the Oregon-California game last weekend:

Does anybody remember when Willie McGinnist stalled on the goaline against the Colts with an "injury" (possibly a cramp I don't remember) and then made a game winning tackle a play later and proceeded to sprint like 75 yards in celebration? That's what immediately came to mind for me.

This has happened every single week to the Ducks since the Stanford game when it happened like 5 times. I personally think its stupid, faking injuries is for ******* and has no place in football. Leave the flopping/acting to soccer players and Derek Fisher.

Both of those are lol worthy. I think it's "fair" but certainly frown upon it. I guess you do whatever you have to, to stop them. Definitely pathetic though.
