Urlacher said a Bears coach would simulate a swimmers’ diving motion with his arms from the sideline and the player “would get hurt


You'd think they could come up with a signal a little less conspicuous than a swimmer's diving motion.

In seriousness though,I assume all the people who are saying they have no problem with this also have no problem when players dive in soccer, or flop in basketball?


Players in soccer who blatantly dive can get a yellow card so they're risking missing the next game if they've got a yellow on them already. Basketball is also getting serious about habitual floppers. There are consequences, even if they don't get enforced enough.

I have a problem with it being a bitch tactic, but it's always happened and will continue to until there's a real reason not to.

I always considered this an open secret.
