Poll: Suarez Biting Penalty

Surely y'all know that Suarez bit an Italian player during the Uruguay / Italy game on June 25?

FIFA has just announced their decision:

- 4 month ban on all competition

- 66,000 British Pound Sterling fine

- also banned for 9 international matches

What do you think? Too lenient, too harsh, or fair?

Too harsh, extending the ban into the EPL season is bogus.

FIFA is a federation of football associations. England FA is a member. FIFA has jurisdiction to ban Suarez in the EPL.

Not exactly his first offense. Seems lenient to me.

The sad part is guy is clearly off his fucking rocker and is hard wired to do this. No amount of therapy, or any penalty, is going to change him. He will do it again.

I don't see him playing for Liverpool next season after all that has happened at the World cup, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he doesn't come back to England and asks for a transfer.


Just saw on the BBC that there are rumours he is already talking with Barcelona about joining them for next season.

I see far worse incidents in games with player deliberately attempting to injure other players and not getting sanctioned like this.

It strikes me that biting another player is a deliberate attempt to injure. If this were the first offense that penalty would be OK. In as much as this is the third documented attack I'd give him a 2 year ban. At least.

The man needs professional psychiatric help. Lots of it.

If he had better food in England he would not be so hungry.

For sure, but the injury is not going to prevent the player from continuing in the game. A kick to the head, an elbow, striking the inside of the knee, etc all deliberate acts done in an attempt to injure don't warrant this level of penalty. A bite is clearly not acceptable, but it's not as bad as other unpunished acts.

And yes, I agree he needs the help of a mental health professional. If FIFA had mandated that I'd have no issue with it, but instead they punish his club side who had nothing to do with the incident.

It may not be logical, but some offenses are considered worse than others. It's not because they cause more injury. They're an affront to our sensibilities.

Spitting is one. Biting is another. You just cannot do them.

I understand why you're frustrated as a Liverpool fan, Thraan. But really, three times? He was begging for a severe punishment. Something has to get through to him, because so far he hasn't accepted that he has a problem.

I think the punishment is just about perfect. It effects Suarez at all levels of his playing, not just the national team. It sends a clear message to all players that there is no safe haven for repeat offenders. This is a good thing.

I saw on ESPN a suggestion to pull all his teeth.

Seems reasonable.

I think FIFA is trying to make the point that both club and country need to step up and do their part to make sure their players know that this type of behavior will not be tolerated. Uruguay coaching staff, media, and countrymen have been making excuses for his behavior, saying it's all part of the game. The only punishments he has suffered previously have been from the governing bodies, not the clubs themselves AFAIK. FIFA is giving them the opportunity to get control of their player before they ban him for life.

At least you admit it's illogical, but weirdly you think illogical is perfect... Are you angling for a job with FIFA?
