Is this really a widespread thing? Sounds pretty disgraceful to an outsider.
It's fairly common. And it's annoying. The refs get criticized for calls/non-calls on fouls - but honestly from their perspective, it's tough to tell with these guys diving around the pitch. In hockey, diving is considered taboo .. in soccer, it's accepted for the most part.
