slo-mo close up of Bale deliberately tripping over his own leg.......cue studio anchorman:

'you can understand why Gareth Bale thought he'd been clipped from behind though'

You can't make this up

Poor dive from Bale. I would even try and defend him and say he clipped his own heels, but most of the top players are taught to clip there own heel so it's just as bad. Wish he'd cut it out or get hit with a ban, the only way to stop it is with bans, if someone is caught diving, give them a red card, get them off the field and then let the FA deal with the punishment.

Second time this week he has dived. I await all the 'Bale is ruining football with his diving' articles....oh wait I forgot the media only cares when it's Suarez

Not trying to defend the guy or anything since right now he is definitely the worst of the bunch but over the past week I've seen a bunch of stories of people just complaining about him even though diving was happening long before he arrived in the premier league and other players are still doing it right now. Why are people like Bale and welbeck not getting as much hate when they do it a lot too. Is frigging annoying I gotta say. FA really need to do something about diving so that it stops everyone from doing it.

Saying that though, James Morrison has actually come out and defended him:

Quote:
Scotland midfielder Shaun Maloney has defended Gareth Bale and admitted that he may have made contact with the Wales winger in the incident which led to the equaliser in his side's 2-1 loss on Friday.

Chris Coleman's team came from a goal down to win the fiercely contested qualifier but the post-match reaction centered around the hosts' equaliser from the penalty spot.

Maloney cleared the Tottenham man of taking a dive and apologised to his Scottish team-mates for his challenge which all but puts Craig Levein's side's hopes of reaching World Cup 2014 near to ruin.
"The penalty decision swung the game in their favour and I feel awful about that. I think there might have been a bit of contact, to be fair to Bale," he told The Daily Record.

"It wasn't a challenge as such, he just ran across me and part of his legs touched mine. I don't think he dived. It was just a coming-together.

"I haven't seen it again but I have to be honest – my gut feeling was that he didn't dive. I'm pretty sure I didn't put a challenge in but I think there was some contact.

"It happened numerous times in the game. I tried to track back and help Danny Fox, as that was my job on the night. It's just unfortunate that this one time he got in front of me and when he ran across me he ended up winning the penalty.

"I can only apologise to my team-mates. It's just one of these things that can happen in a match. But it's devastating after the effort that everyone put in and it's something I'm going to regret for a very long time."

Wales manager Coleman also came out in defence of his star player, whom he believes has wrongly picked up a reputation for diving.
He told reporters: "Don't get me wrong, I don't like to see anybody diving. The finger has been pointed at Gareth once or twice but I don't think he dived tonight. I thought he was running at great pace in the box.

"And watch the expression on Maloney's face because he knows there's been a little bit of contact. There's no reason for Gareth to go down because he's either going to square it or shoot, so I don't think there's a question of that [diving] tonight."

It's true. Bale dived last week and both Match of the Day 2 and Press Pass were saying that it's all fun and games. It looked so silly that it's only a laugh to them. But when looking at Suarez they wanted hell to open up and swallow him.
