Powerful stuff. For ordinary folk, the NHS is this nation's single most important institution. It saves our lives. Funding it is a political choice. Who would chose not to save lives?  https://twitter.com/UKLabour/status/953695925351866370 
@dannytaylor92 If you deliberately "go down" you are cheating. Whatever the mechanics of the situation. If you ARE fouled but dive then you are still cheating. But the point remains that pundits habitually condone it.
@dannytaylor92 That's not the point I'm making. The point I'm making is that pundits repeatedly say a player "has a RIGHT to go down". They don't. Week in, week out pundit come out with this phrase. It is normalising (and encouraging) cheating.
@dannytaylor92 The point is that pundits - ex-professionals - think "contact" gives players "the right" to dive,. That is the problem. They all condone cheating. They frame a narrative that it is admirable to con the ref.
Pundit speak: "Morata is well within his rights to go down"... Translated: to *cheat* #CHENOR
