Arsene Wenger admits a strong dislike for divers in a football match and he posits that the actors will not stop unless punished.
Arsenal manager wants divers punished
Chelsea are top on the list of culprits fingered for diving offences.
The 65 year-old Frenchman called for a panel to be set up so as to look into the acts which have been become prominent amongst high-profile players.
"I am against diving, but the only way players will stop doing it is if they can get punished.
"We should punish after the game.
"The problem will be to decide when it was obvious diving or not. That is a big issue and sometimes it is not obvious."
Most notable on the list of diving offenders are Chelsea players who have been accused in recent matches by opposition managers.
Chelsea defender Gary Cahill was fingered for "something out of Swan Lake" in the Blues' 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge on 13 December; Diego Costa and winger Willian were both booked for the same act by referee Chris Foy.
Sam Allardyce also accused Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic of going down "looking for a penalty" when the Blues beat West Ham 2-0 victory on Boxing Day, while Cesc Fabregas was booked for going down softly in the penalty area in the 1-1 draw against Southampton on Sunday.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho responded by claiming there is a campaign to influence referees' decisions against his side.
