And how much of the Liverpool thread have you read? When Suarez goes down easy he's not exactly getting praise from us either. But at the same time he's vilified to such an extreme measure by non-LFC supporters we are quick to defend the man as a human being. If that somehow means we are OK with "cheating", then I no longer have an argument.

Also to come back to the suarez thing, i've admitted before he does get the short end of the stick a lot but I think it's mostly due to his extreme embellishing of every contact (I guess he thinks he's making sure the ref notices) but it makes it looks like he's diving even when he actually does get hit.
