    The scourge of simulation in the EPL

    Thanks for your responses, John.

    I agree that a player has to protect himself first and foremost, but we shouldn't confuse a genuine attempt to avoid nasty tackle with diving. After all the referees are there for a reason. Most players don't set out to inflict injuries on the opposing players, therefore I don't buy into the self protection argument at all.
