A clamor against divers resounded throughout the soccer world when Arsenal's Eduardo dove and won a penalty against Celtic a few weeks ago. As a result, UEFA handed down a two match ban to the Croatian hit man. And as usual, the ban was appealed by Arsenal. Many were glad to see UEFA take that stance against divers.
However, Arsenal's appeal turned out to be successful and Eduardo's ban was overturned today. While Eduardo appeared to dive, if UEFA were to actually uphold this standard for every single match to issue a retroactive ban, it would open itself to review every contentious decision that they might have to overturn.
What do you think of UEFA's decision? Think they were wrong to suspend Eduardo in the first place? Have they completely undermined themselves with these decisions?
