    I've long held the opinion that Mr. Ruud van Nistelrooy is a diver - anyone else agree?

    Perhaps these pictures go a long way to explaining his theatricals:

    Definitely a diver. Never seems to get booked for it though.

    Might not be a diver, but I bet he has some Jacques Cousteau books on his shelf :shock: :wink: :lol:

    Alright. Maybe just a little bit.
    Not as bad as Heskey or Owen though.

    It doesn't seem fair to single out Van Nistlerooy for this... there are so many players in the premiership and in this European Championships who have got away with more and worse dives... just because your team's defence can't handle him, doesn't mean you should resort to petty name calling... :wink:

    I don't think there is striker in the Premiership that can't be accused of diving from time to time. It's a sad trend in football these days.
