The only way it’s going to stop is if it starts getting carded. They’d think twice about doing it if it came with cards/suspensions

What about matching yellows? Like hockey…

But if the player didn’t do anything that resembled a foul in the first place, you’re penalizing him for another guy’s actions.

What about matching yellows if there are two offenses (a foul and a dive), and only one yellow if there’s only one offense (a dive)?

Yeah, the bottom line is that FIFA has to take a stand on diving and start carding it. I’m sure there will be an adjustment period, and there will be some controversial cards given for perceived dives, but it’s for the good of the game.
