Posted by Andrew Hush

The topic of diving was the dominant discussion point on Tuesday's show and there were varying points of view...

Alexi Lalas explained why he doesn't find diving offensive.

Gab Marcotti looked at how diving has developed over the years.

ESPN.com NBA correspondent, Marc Stein, compared attitudes in different sports.

Taylor Twellman insisted that fines are the only way to eradicate the practice.

Meanwhile, Craig Burley suggested that independent committees should be set up to look at incidents.

Former referee, Peter Walton, agreed and suggested that retrospective punishment is the way forward.

The diving debate continued with Taylor and Craig on #FCextratime.

In a special segment called 'Ask the ref', Peter answered viewer questions about being the man in the middle.

Peter also addressed a controversial end to New England and New York's clash last weekend.

Ahead of the USA vs Jamaica, Taylor and Alexi discussed some of Jurgen Klinsmann's selection options.

Gab had his say on reports that Francesco Totti could return to the Italy squad.
