to think that Suarez's 10 match ban is totally justified?

I am not a football fan but the bite incident was shocking - it was like a toddler having a tantrum but a grown man doing it was just vile.

What pisses me off was that Liverpool FC saying they were surprised and disappointed with it? Wtf? What else do they expect? They should be fined too for not being able to control their player.

He may still be nominated for player of the season because he is so talented!

Entitled prick.

totally agree..
not sure why it wasn't a police issue..
if a random man bit another random man in the street it would be assault surely/.

Suarez, you naughty boy, you bit someone, take the rest of the season off........no it's not justified, it should have been worse in my eyes

I think he should be banned full stop. Nasty piece of work

McNewPants2013 Wed 24-Apr-13 22:38:42

If this was any other job, he would have been sacked.

I think he should do anger management course before being allowed back on the pitch.

can I just check... is that paid time off??

foslady Wed 24-Apr-13 22:39:49

On his wage/sponsorship deals it won't really make much difference Never

Totally agree that he should be banned totally but let's be realistic, this is football, it ain't ever going to happen.

Ched Evans got less for rape. Not saying its right just the argument my Liverpool supporting DH keeps making.

I said Evans went to prison and that if Saurez wasn't a footballer and did it to a man on the street, he'd be in the clink too.

I presume that would depend whether the victim made a complaint?

Anyway, the FA haven't had their hearing yet.

He got a 7 match ban at Ajax for biting. Wasn't also at the centre of the N -word usage on the pitch?

CoolCadbury Wed 24-Apr-13 22:41:06

Yup, holly.

If he had been in the stands he would have been arrested, because he was on the pitch he gets a slap on the wrist, it shows just how serious the fa are when they say they want to get violence ( and racism) out of football.

Runningblue Wed 24-Apr-13 22:45:40

Hasn't he got form for previous incidents? Sure i heard on the radio he'd bitten during a match before.

TiggyD Wed 24-Apr-13 22:47:23

Liverpool fan here. Totally agree with it.

I believe he should get a lifetime ban.

Fucking animal has no place on a football pitch.

He is obviously unstable. He should not be playing football anymore, he should have been dropped long ago.
Liverpool employed him and they make me sick, defending him and his actions. Like any other footballer / sportsperson in the public eye he (& the club) has a responsibility to sportsmanship, youngsters, fans and those who might want to follow in his footsteps.
Ban him from English football is what I say.

He has got form for previous incidents, which was supposedly a factor in the FA imposing what for them was a severe punishment. I also suspect that (as I heard on a radio discussion of this earlier today) they have accounted for the fact that the next 4 games are effectively meaningless. When you look at it this way he's actually serving a 6-match ban hmm

AnyFucker Wed 24-Apr-13 23:18:24

A nice little end-of-season holiday for him.

Expect paparazzi pics of him sunning himself on Necker Island (or similar).

he doesn't give a toss, and why would he ?

The ban won't mean anything.

He's bitten before. I mean what adult BITES someone? Even a seven year old wouldn't bite someone! A lifetime ban would be safer and better.

Oh dear. The baying mob is out. It was a shocking but ultimately trivial incident. He didn't even leave a mark. Some "bite". John Terry got a 4 game ban for racism.
Suarez never threatened anyone with a career ending injury. Grossly OTT. It's a pantomime in which he's cast as the villain, and the FA are going along with it.

AnyFucker Thu 25-Apr-13 07:14:23

"He didn't even leave a mark"

That's ok then.

BrevilleTron Thu 25-Apr-13 07:24:22

We expect toddlers to bite. They are small sometimes non-verbal children, who often struggle with how to express emotions.

Suarez is an Adult. Who is paid lots of cash to play football and whether he likes it or not this puts him in the position of role model for young boys.

He lost control of himself and should therefore be punished.

Hardly a 'baying mob' dear hmm
Just stating that maybe the punishment should be slightly more than a fine and a match ban.

Lazyjaney Thu 25-Apr-13 07:27:37

Last time he did this was 7 games, so 10 for a 2 nd offence seems about right.

Jengnr Thu 25-Apr-13 07:34:09

It's an excessive ban. Violent conduct is three games. I think this should probably have got a bit extra for the nature of the conduct but ten is massively OTT.

However, I'm a United fan so it is quite funny. smile

DesperatelySeekingSedatives Thu 25-Apr-13 07:34:34

The biting was out of order, damn right it was. However the FA blatantly have it in for him. No way would say, a player at Man U have got a 10 match ban.

"The racism thing" well that appeared to not be very clear cut. Suarez said "negrito" not "negro" which isnt a racist term. Sounds like Evra was a prized twat as well.

Life time ban for a bite? hmm seems a bit OTT when you think about how many other more serious injuries are punished by a fine and match ban for a few weeks til the furror dies down. Including injuries that ended careers.

Not a Liverpool fan per se but DP is. didnt care one way or another til it became blatant this was another excuse for a have a pop at Suarez bandwagon.
