Santi Cazorla Should Be Suspended And Fined For Trying To Ruin The Game Of Soccer

I think the subject line says it all.   The video is here:

and here is an animated GIF of the awful dive that earned Arsenal the game winning penalty kick:

Cliff notes:

25th minute of a 0-0 game:  the defender makes NO CONTACT with Cazorla, but Cazorla dives anyway, earns the penalty kick, and rolls around on the ground clutching his ankle.

He should be suspended for at least 2 games and fined.   Soccer’s governing bodies need to crack down on this crap.

I love soccer.   I coach soccer, I play soccer year round, I watch soccer.

I think diving douchebags like Cazorla are the primary reason that soccer isn’t bigger in the United States.
