Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Uruguay star Luis Suarez has been banned for nine games and four months by FIFA for biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during their World Cup match. Suarez had two prior biting incidents in the past five years, one while he played for Liverpool in England's Premiership and another at Ajax in Holland. The decision takes away Uruguay's top player and one of the standouts of the tournament before its match against Colombia in a knockout game Saturday. The punishment covers the start of Suarez' club season as well for Liverpool.

Why isn't this man receiving psychiatric treatment?

I think anything up to a year would have been fair punishment.

I think if you bite 3 people at various times you probably should be banned from the sport.

Just think if one of your co workers bit 3 different people? Actually they wouldn't have bit the second person b/c they would have been fired.

Hey, at least this guy adds an element of danger to the sport. It'll make soccer more popular here.

Probably arrested and charged with a serious crime as well.

My tolerance for children biting is a negative number. He should be fired forever.

Its a joke to put the ban on games with Liverpool. He's going to be sold, maybe Barca or Real Madrid, but his market value has dropped considerably, especially since the ban passes on to the new team.

Not to be overly harsh, but if this really is his third biting incident he needs to be banned from the sport.

Easy Moder. Don't give Rcade the idea 3 vacations and your banned.

It wasn't really a bite, just a lick or a nibble, the "victim" wasn't even hospitalized, he did not need stiches, It was more like a hickey that 15 boys like to plant on girls. Men in Uruguay bite other men all the time, it's like a handshake or a pat on the back here in the USA

When professional athletes physically assault other players, why aren't they charged with a crime?

They should let him play with a muzzle on. The embarassment alone might do more than a suspension. Plus it would be entertaining.
