AFL lesson for diving divas
It isn’t every day that a Brazilian football star receives a lesson in resilience from an AFL goal umpire, but yesterday was just such an occasion. Sydney Swans fans watching yesterday’s victory over Melbourne recoiled at an accidental collision between 100kg Demons defender Oscar McDonald and slightly built Chelsea Roffey. To everybody’s great relief, however, Roffey immediately stood up and continued officiating.
Compare that with the diving antics of Brazilian forward Neymar during the recent World Cup. Let’s hope Neymar sees a clip of Roffey and in future thinks better of faking injury.
