Hey, Robert McCune.

You're a tough guy. You were in the U.S. National Guard and served in Afghanistan, Kuwait and South Korea. You're a hero who should be praised.

So I feel bad saying this: Stop diving!

In case you missed it during Saturday during the game between the Toronto Argos and Calgary Stampeders at Rogers Centre, McCune, a Toronto linebacker, dropped like he had been drilled with a Floyd Mayweather left hook during a post-play scrum.

No one touched him.

Maybe the former Stamp was trying to get one of his ex-teammates in trouble as a joke, but it looked like Euro 2012 had broken out and McCune was playing the role of Cristiano Ronaldo.

McCune got up with his arms flailing and looking at the referees for a penalty. Thankfully, the officials saw what was going on and didn't throw a flag.

Perhaps they should have thrown one ... at McCune.
