Luis Suarez proves himself to be a disgrace again!


I've been the 1st to praise Suarez on this site, backed him up on a number of occasions, but enough is enough, it's no longer a one off occurence. This is his 3rd!!! biting issue, the man is an animal. Disgusting, should get a HUGE ban from football! Surely no Liverpool fan can back him up now, no matter his talent.

@releasethekraken he's bitten people 3 times now and hasn't learnt his lesson. He needs tough punishment. I think he should have been banned longer.

@releasethekraken it's because it's a bite. disgusting, vile conduct.

It's the 3rd time he's done such which shows he isn't learning, 3rd time just for biting he's done plenty of other things to add to that.

It also seemed quite calculated in the sense that there didn't seem to be any provocation but I wasn't close to the action so I couldn't say that for certainty.

Let's not forget the fact that it's on the biggest stage being watched world wide too

@Doozers20 yeah i know, and i agree. but 4 months worldwide??? as well as a 9 game international ban???? FOUR MONTHS?!? it's pretty much an unprecendented punishment in terms of violent conduct... and it's for a bite that barely left a mark. can't understand that at all.

@releasethekraken but it's his 3rd time, it needs to be made abundantly clear that what he is doing is disgusting, he just doesn't seem to be learning, or indicating at all that he thinks it is wrong.

@paulison I disagree on Cantona, I think what he got was fair, he didn't go out with a pre-conceived idea to end someones career, Keane did, that's the difference for me. Plus Cantona's was hilarious.

@Doozers20 i agree that a bite is worse than elbowing, stamping etc. purely because of the rarity and filthiness of it. but in my opinion it is not that much worse that it should incur a 4-month worldwide ban as opposed to a maximum 3-match ban you'd get for a standard act of violent conduct. i'm sorry but i just don't see it.

@Doozers20 Yeah, Keane should have been banned for life!! .... and Cantona also!!!!!

@releasethekraken of what you listed, the only thing that is worse than a bite in my opinion, is an intentional leg breaker ala Keane on Haaland.

@Villa-Rich That was so bad it was funny. I bet you were hoping they would lose so that you could use that one!

@Dent_Ford yeah but the same could be said for any act of violent conduct on a football pitch - a punch to the face, a headbutt, a leg-breaking tackle, a stamp etc.

my issue is with the length and terms of the ban and where the numbers have come from. i would suggest that there is only a pre-specified punishment for 'violent conduct' or whatever they choose to call it, which i believe a bite falls under (i highly doubt they have a separate punishment for a bite, being such a rare offence). and i highly doubt that punishment is 9 games + a 4 month worldwide ban (although i admit suarez's past misdemeanours must be taken into account). then they've just made it up. however, if there is an official FIFA ruling that has a stipulation that says "if a player bites another player and that player has been involved in a race row and 2 biting incidents in the past, then he should be given a 9 game ban + a 4 month worldwide one" then i will shut up and accept it. i highly doubt this is the case though... i just want to know how they've come up with this punishment.

also, i believe i don't have a blind spot when it comes to liverpool players. i think i am very unbiased (obviously not totally, no one is) when it comes to things like this. i just genuinely don't think it's a correct punishment based on the offence. i think i'd say the same were it any other player (i'd like to think so anyway).

@releasethekraken I might be more inclined to accept your argument if it weren't for the fact that the same action in almost any other circumstances would have the perpetrator facing a costly run in with the legal system at the very least, and more likely would be a guest of the state for a period of time considerably longer than 4 months...

@jimbo1984 claiming the ban is harsh is in no way excusing or justifying (whatever word you want to use) anything. it's simply claiming the ban is harsh.

yeah - only a liverpool fan, or a uruguayan. or chiellini himself maybe???? chiellini himself came out and said the ban was excessive... tells you all you need to know really. i believe it is a violent conduct issue and that is all. a third violent conduct issue admittedly, but not one that is deserving of a 4-month worldwide ban on top of a 9-game international ban. that is my opinion and i am not the only one. i am not interested in scoring morality points with other fans, i'm just giving my opinion.

@releasethekraken when I use the word excusing, I'm referring to the same thing Jimbo pointed out... "claiming he's being treated unfairly or saying his punishment is harsh"... Perhaps minimizing his offense is a better way to put it, and I'm in no way picking on you individually (or at least that was not my intent) b/c I think people generally have a "blind spot" when it comes to "their" players as opposed to "other" players (and as I said I believe this works regardless of sport)... I personally feel that his ludicrous story that he stumbled and fell teeth first into Chiellini (I'm not an idiot, and I don't appreciate being treated like one) more than highlights my point that all too often the wrong doing of athletes is dealt with in such a way that the message sent tends to be the more talented you are, the "better" treatment you will receive... Would we be having this argument about the harshness of the punishment if it was say a journeyman mid-fielder on a League One club that had a fetish for biting???

If he knows what he's doing and knows its Wrong but can't stop himself doing it then he shouldn't have any involvement in the game

@releasethekraken maybe not justifying it but claiming he's being treated unfairly or saying his punishment is harsh.
Only a Liverpool fan or a Uruguayan would agree with that..
Imagine it was Rooney who had bitten 3 different players..
He would get the exact same treatment..
It's no witch hunt, the bloke is unhinged...
He's just released a statement saying he lost his balance and banged his teeth on cheilinis sholder...

@Dent_Ford i've never "excused" it either, if you read what i've said you'll see that.

@releasethekraken Having read your series of treatises, you may not be "justifying" his behavior, but I think it is far from unfair to say you are at the very least seeking to "excuse" it... Which is a huge part of the problem imho... The reason this is his third similar offense imho is that too many people (esp. supporters of the team he's playing for be it Ajax. Liverpool, or Uruguay) have downplayed his abhorrent behavior, or tried to make him out the victim/martyr (as Uruguay are doing now) b/c of his World Class talent... The sad bit there, and I'm not just picking on Suarez b/c it happens with athletes (across pretty much all sports), is that the message it sends to everyone (and in this case it truly is a global audience) is that if you're talented enough at a game the rules don't apply to you be it on the pitch, or in life in general...
