North Queensland’s Fowler keen to stamp out diving
North Queensland Fury striker Robbie Fowler is all for Football Federation Australia’s new ruling on diving.
FFA have introduced a video footage system that can see players miss games if they are found guilty of simulation, which is a rule that Fowler definitely agrees with.
“I’ve never done it (diving); it’s not my game,” Fowler said.
“It’s a form of cheating and I want to play the game in the right way.
“You know the people diving are everywhere and it’s not helped the game at all.”
“It’s a bit out of the box (the new ruling),” Buckley said.
“Yes we’re pro-active but we’re very keen to make sure Australia sets the standards worldwide.
“It’s not the spirit of the game and we don’t want that to become a prevalent part of the A-League.”
