Consistent Diving Calls

from the Times Herald,
Now, with fines starting to be handed out, someone could make a good living off the financial penalties being handed out for diving in hockey games. In what has become a performance art of sorts, players all over the NHL - and every team has at least one - are doing their best Greg Louganis impersonations. Problem is, the league is inconsistent. For example, wunderkind Sidney Crosby must have seen an oasis on the Wachovia Center ice Wednesday, for he dove at least three times. He was whistled for it once, and started mouthing off to the refs. Did he get the letter in the mail saying, "You've been a bad boy Sidney?" Don't know. They're kept secret. But will Sid the Kid, the poster boy for the new NHL, see a financial fine? Doubtful.
