Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has criticised the eight-match ban he recieved for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.
Every word he says is so true. The media and FA never did and never will understand the situation. The FA are scums who waited so long to target the club and players and they got what they wanted. Still, Luis has great spirit and will move on
One mans word against the other. Yet evra is more credible and least likely to be lying even though he's lied about stuff like this in the past. Also, isn't racism a criminal office, if so then why wasn't this case taken to the courts like brave english hero john terry's. Effin ridiculous.
... and how 'objective' they are when dealing with it, should just look at how they've handled the Terry/Ferdinand case. 'Nuff said. When it's Suarez they give him a ridiculous and way OTT 8-match ban, and when it's Terry, they look the other way (at least until after the summer), cause it's somehow not convenient for them to take action.
"Still, Luis has great spirit and will move on" Really? Doesn't seem to be doing a good job of moving on if he's still bringing it up. I sympathize with his situation to a degree and I don't believe he is a racist for a second but when you come to a new country with a different culture, it's on you to learn about it. 8 match ban might seem a bit excessive but I don't think it would have been fair to show leniency for something that should really be common sense.
Well in Luis, YNWA.
Thats the problem.
This guy is as squeaky clean as Joey Barton who too believes the Fa have it out against him. Delusional! The guy should be fined for bringing the game into disrepute and I expect he will.
So true. His history is amusing, but of course he is just being victimised when he bites chunks out of people as well. The guy has a bad record but i am sure he can blame it all on something else
to quote will smith "don't start nothing won't be nothing"
lol at this goofy teethed cunt, his finishing is wank only good things about him is his dribbling
funny how no one asked your opinion and yet you still seem to voice it.
@upbeat What the hell!? The whole point of the comment section is to voice your opinion and without people voicing there opinions these sorts of sites would die.
That goofy teethed has incredible talent, and helped Uruguay win the South American Cup and finish strong in the South African World Cup. He's a beast, simply put, his attitude should change but there's no need to stoop down to a level below the one he's in.
It's one man against the other, i'm so not sure who to trust, we should just all shut-up and forget about it.
LOL, thanks. I mean this things has been dragged long enough, i really don't care who is right anymore. Neither should anyone.
It's his opinion, Evra has another. There is no proof to clear Suarez yet there is no proof to condemn him. Unfortunately the media love a race row and certain supporters will take it on themselves to believe what they want and blow it out of all proportion simply because it suits which side of the fence they are on. As a Liverpool fan I was quick to correct people jumping to conclusions but then I learnt to step back and actually assess what was happening. In reality he could have said something racist, it could have been a complete misunderrstanding or even a cultural divide as to what is offensive and what isn't, no one knows and will never know. My issue is with the FA and how they handled it with little transparency and absolutely no conclusive evidence yet still condemned the man, it dragged on far too long and fuelled the press in all the wrong ways.
That was well put. But didn't he come out and say he said something to him in Spanish but the same word means something different in english. At the end of the day he now need to just let this go with the FA as Liverpool hurt them selfs in what they did when they supported him and he now just need to say lets put what happened to bed and show us all what he can do on a football pitch.
"he said in an interview with Russia Today." More racism imo end of story.
I really do not understand what you just said.
Can't really of the top of my head think of a more racist football country.
Suarez punishment was based on no foundation. Terry was still not banned despite every tv station in the world showed the inncident. It is summer now and F.A has still not given any evidence on Suarez's guilt.
