One of the more common complaint football detractors make is that players have a tendency to dive. Rajiv Sethi, an economist at Barnard and Columbia, has about diving from an economics perspective. Does diving upset opponents? Are the incentives to dive greater than the costs of diving? As a fan, I lose respect for players that consistently dive. Jurgen Klinsmann may joke about it now, but I could never support Germany when he was consistently diving in the box.
