Brendan Rodgers Thinks Liverpool Might Need To Dive More

Because apparently Luis Suarez doesn't dive enough for the entire team combined, Brendan Rodgers might ask his players to dive more

Liverpool have been shafted by the referees so they need to dive more, or so goes Brendan Rodgers' logic.

After a string of calls went against them in recent weeks, Rodgers hit out at the referees and threatened to ask his team to dive for calls. Apparently, he is unaware that Luis Suarez plays for his team.

"We like to think we are a sporting team, I have always told my players to do the right thing, not to dive, to play fair," Rodgers said. "But the fairness we show, it seems the decisions pass us by because of it.

"It is not something we want to encourage, but if you're not going to get decisions because of it players may do that."

Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson admitted that Suarez's reputation probably contributed to his being denied a penalty against Manchester United, and considering Gerrard has a Ph.D. in Diving Arts, he would know best. But if the team would just dive more things would go their way, right Brendan?
