The story is too old to be commented.

Now the man utd fans who were saying it the right decision, will say Oh, Rio thinks otherwise, maybe the FA is wrong.

Tbh even as a utd fan, I think 10 matches for this is harsh. It was stupid.. really stupid but to say what he done is worse than some of the two footed high challenges I've seen this season is absurd.

or the Jermain Defoe bite, or the Eric Cantona crowd kick.

It aint any wonder why people think the FA are corrupt

If kids on this site could understand that this is a message to him for screwing up too many times in short time...

I was thinking that too. Football is football. We see bad tackles all the time, but what Suarez did is just out of control lol. Baffling really. 10 games is a bit harsh...but I think he's sure to never try anything like this again.
