Burley rants against diving -- and gets it badly wrong
Craig Burley, I must say, comes over rather well on TV. Down to earth, with an attractive (and understandable) Scots accent, and a lively personality to deliver his various views.

"At that time, when we began showing the games, nobody showed soccer. The rest of the bars around here, they would say it's a sissy sport. Football and basketball were sports."

-- Joe Javidara, owner of Summers Restaurant, the legendary Arlington, Va., soccer-viewing establishment that is shutting down on Dec. 31 after 30 years, in part because of declining patronage in face of the other viewing options available to soccer fans at home or at competing soccer bars.
