Tactical fouls and studs-up tackles dangerously overshadowed by diving hysteria
LONDON -- This fatuous business of turning simulation, or diving, into the worst crime that a player can commit continues -- and continues to have ridiculous side effects.

"I've always tried to be a guy who makes the right play in front of the goal. So if that means making the pass that leads to the pass that scores, if that means making the pass that leads to the goal, or if that means shooting when you need to shoot. I try and make good decisions in those moments, they come fast and it's not always easy to make the right decision, but I've tried to always make the right decision when I can."

-- Landon Donovan, who holds the MLS goal-scoring record and is the U.S. national team's all-time goals and assists leader. He is now tied for career MLS assist mark of 135 with Steve Ralston after his three-assist night in the LA Galaxy's 4-0 win over New York.
