Theres a big difference between winning a free kick or penalty and diving, which is if you are touched minimally fall in such a way as to make it difficult for the ref to not give you the foul but diving is when you are not touched at all and you go tumbling down
In layman terms, its winning a penalty when its your team and its diving when its against your team

Del Piero is a good faller.....i think after so many injuries, he took courses on how to fall and not get hurt..Aparently, the Ref thought him spinning meant that there was a lot of contact!!!
seriously (always notice how dp falls, he usually roles his body with his legs spining like a fan)......
check it out.....specially clips from last season and the one before when DP was a lot slower.
DP seems to be a LOT tougher than last seasons. The first time i noticed it this season was when juve played Milan in the Burlesconi^1 trophy, he had a mini-war with Laursen. He even returned the knocks by tackling laursen back.......
