Ultimate Soccer Dive tessellation

It is a shame that the game of soccer has been sullied by “dives”. Then again, a “game” does imply deception of the opponent or referee. Regardless – I still don’t like it, especially when the two players don’t even touch! This is the case here. The player reaches forward to pull the other player’s hair (a copy of himself), looks back to see if the ref is watching, then as usual, falls to the ground to roll too many times. Many leagues, many instances of these characters. Entertaining?
