Taking a Dive

  • Ty Long taking a dive is getting old. He is too talented to resort to such tacky behaviour Mind you, I wouldn't put it past Jeff Reinebold being in on it. This is the third dive I've seen him take. Not part of CFL.

Until there is an unsportsmanlike conduct or diving or embellishment penalty for diving, it is always worth trying to draw a penalty.

Fortunately, the referees didn’t buy it tonight.

Ottawa had to burn their only challenge to overturn Long's first "Neymar"!!! Blind-man Murphy looked like an idiot when he threw the flag!

Crap! I missed that.
I saw him do one later in the game.
The league would do well to have a chat with the Lions.

When Reinbold was the ST coach in Hamilton, I don't recall the punters diving. This seems to be Long's thing.

I think the bulk of that he had Medlock though....and he doesn't like hitting the turf.

Flopping is a pretty common thing for kickers...same as holding the leg up longer. Same thing goes for coverage teams...if you are in chase mode and you sense the opportunity/contact to back...flop time. Does not work a lot, but it definitely does draw the odd flag.

Don't remind me.
