It wasn't a dive. He avoided the tackle stupidly because the tackle would have been a clear cut foul. But with his forward momentum and then sudden movement of his body away from the contact he fell. He wasn't looking for the penalty. If he was, he would have just taken the tackle as the tackle was idiotic. The ref however blew for the penalty which J-Rod did not appeal for or look for. Bad ref decision, stupid Villa player for sliding in, but hardly a con job by J-Rod.

Not just Saints bias mind you

Should add, we thoroughly deserved to win. We were the better team for 70 minutes and survived the predictable onslaught at the end. J-Rod should have scored at least once as he had chances one on one and Puncheon hit the post.

There's no such thing as avoiding the tackle, if he goes down and he hasn't been touched then it's a dive. Football is a contact sport, if you can't take a tackle then don't play the sport. I'm not saying every tackle should be done in the style of Roy Keane but "it wasn't a dive, he avoided the tackle" is fucking disgraceful and I'm hearing it all the time.

He fell because he readjusted at the last second to avoid the tackle. I'm not saying that it is a foul. There was no contact hence no foul. But to take a dive is to imply he went to ground on purpose so as to con the ref into a decision. J-Rod didn't do that, he merely fell and it was the ref that blew for a penalty. No one appealed for one, Jay wasn't looking for one. If he was, he would have just allowed the tackle to hit him because had he not moved out of the tackles way he would have been fouled. A player can fall to the ground all he wants, it's not a dive unless he is doing it to look for a foul.

He's hitting the floor when he doesn't need to, he shouldn't have been avoiding anything. Whether it was his intention to do that or not is irrelevant, he's still done it.

Just saw the incident. It was a clear cut Dive no two ways about it. Don't see how anyone could have argued against that. The way he went down is the same kinda manner we have seen guys like Suarez Bale and Young go down this year.

It's becoming evident to me that the definition of diving is alien to some people.

That was as clear cut a dive as you'll see, he fell after the defender had already swung past him so trying to use the Bale excuse of 'was just trying to avoid a tackle' is even more irrelevant than usual. Quit being such a homer.

It's cool that your team has a no-good, cheating scumbag within the ranks. We've all got one. Or two.

Although if we're going to use "avoiding the tackle" as the guideline, I want to retrospectively clear Suarez, Bale, Young and Ronaldo of all wrongdoings. Good, clean, tackle avoiders.

At least Rodriguez is a successful scumbag. Those three extra points will be absolutely crucial come May. Besides, would you rather be watching Southampton Vs. Buckland Abbey with a team of do-gooders.

Not expecting anything from our trip to Castle Greyskull. I'd be ecstatic with a draw but we tend to surrender at the first sight of trouble in this fixture. As long as we look somewhat threatening going forward and give it a real go. Hopefully everybody gets along famously, with hugs and kind-words for everyone.
