Its much worse with southern European teams

Its the Latin effect. same thing with the South American teams. You don't get as much of that crap with England, Sweden, Germany, etc.

I love Italian soccer for many reasons, but that isn't one of them. I was watching it with an Australian guy, and he said the same thing. Its stuff like that which is why soccer will never make it big in Australia for same reason as the US. People hate the diving and acting.
