        Football is not the only sport people fake injuries, just the most popular. Me having played football knows that when you're running at such speeds like the pro's do, a very faint touch can bring you off balance and make you trip. Some players do act to make it seem more of a foul than it rly is. Is it bad and wrong? YES! Is it the only sport that has it? definitely not.

        Football is a world sport and will always be more loved and is in my opinion funner to play. Unlike american football which is only loved in the U.S with some small pockets of support outside the states, because outside the states they love rugby instead of american football.

        Let's see how the U.S does against Spain tonight.

          Do these faked acts of drama actually get any penalties? Does soccer/football not have instant replay for the refs to review like American football?

              In NHL hockey players get penalties for faking/dramatizing fouls or injuries. I wish it was the same in every sport.

                    Diving can incur a yellow card if it is detected. However, there is no instant replay, only one referee that can call it, and, as mentioned, someone running full tilt down a field while exhausted can actually fall in a pretty dramatic fashion when their legs come out from underneath them unexpectedly. So, you don't see cards too often for it, but FIFA is trying to increase the penalties. Everyone diving in the manner seen above would almost certainly be carded.
                    I can ADS using more than a 2x without significant stutter! This was a good patch.

                          Watching the WC last year really turned me off to the sport because of this.

                          At least at the international level, soccer seems to have devolved to something just above professional wrestling.
