Maafushivaru is tiny - just 500 metres long - and I immediately made it my mission to walk the entire thing over the course of a week. I didn't make it because the bar is in the middle, but it's important to have goals.

Is Diving Cheating or Is It Part of the Game?

In the not so distant past, when football was a contact sport, the art of diving was almost non-existent. I am not saying it didn't happen, but that nowadays a player is protected by the referees so much that any touch by an opponent will allow the player to dive to the floor knowing that the referee will more than likely award a free kick.

I'm in a rumbling SUV on an icy highway somewhere in the French Alps. Margot, a pig-tailed PR rep, is behind the wheel. She navigates a series of high-elevation twists and turns like a veteran fighter pilot.

Car Crash Television is the New Black

Why was the gathering of 'slebs' in a diving contest so utterly appalling? And why did the citing of Tom Daley doing 'TV work' like Gary and Sue cause such a negation of British sportsmanship? We like to be united in our hatred of TV. But what we don't realise is we are dumbing down our own reputations.

Sensationalist Talk About Diving as a Cancer

William Barns-Graham | Posted 11.12.2012 | UK Sport
William Barns-Graham

So diving is a cancer in football. The other thing that's cancerous is stupid sensationalist responses to diving. There are two counts of this: firstly there's the lacking perspective angle of the likes of Tony Pulis who thinks that a yellow card offence is worthy of a 3 match ban, then there's the 'blame the foreigners' angle of any old school "hoof it oop t' bloody pitch" punter.
