F23 - Seb Ryall didn't dive vs Melbourne Victory!

Sport: Football Category: Diving
Submitted by: Anonymous
Context:

Sydney were losing 2-1 to rivals Melbourne Victory when Sydney's Sebastian Ryall runs into the penalty area and flies to the ground on contact with the Victory defender,  Gui Finkler,  in an A League game in 2015.

Outcome:

A penalty was awarded, which Sydney score, to level the tie at 2-2.  It looks like the final score was 3-3.  However, Victory beat Sydney to the title by 3 points and beat them again in the Finals Series, so revenge was sweet.  Replays showed that Ryall kicked the heel of Frikler but did he do it deliberately?  It's easy to get in a tangle if you want to.  The dive looked theatrical.  A disciplinary panel took 2 hours of viewing the video to decide that Ryall didn't dive, so no action was taken against him.
