Faking a Roughing

What is Faking a Roughing?

This occurs when a kicker, quarterback or punter acts as if unnecessary roughness has been used against them, when it actually has not. This results in a 15-yard penalty.

This can also be called "taking a dive", and many players and coaches disapprove of this type of behaviour in any manner.
