Wow, that is seriously ****ed up. The punishment is well worth the crime at the minute.

tbh one bloke who should be copping more of a bagging is the guy who had his shot blocked on the line before the fateful header. Picked out the legs of the one defender standing on the line from about 4 yards out.
There was really only a benefit in this situation with there being all of .23 of a second left.
Don't think anyone should be copping more of a bagging than Suarez, what he did was piss weak.
Personally I hope Uruguay lose 8-0 in the next match and Suarez breaks his leg on the way out of the stadium. Won't happen though...

Can't believe anyone is having a go at Suarez. He did what he had to do and what every player in the world would do. This wasn't an attempted con in the Maradona/Henry tradition.
I'm not sure every player in the world would do it though to be honest. Obviously I can't speak for them, but if that's true why don't we see it more often?
Don't think it's any better than what the other two did.
His teammates and the country's supporters would wholeheartedly disagree however
Can't believe what a farce this sport is with the blokes getting red carded when their opponents blatantly dive, obvious goals and blatant off-sides being missed, and professional fouls being used to manipulate knock out matches. People can say that "this is football" but all I can think at the moment is imagine the anguish self-flaggelation and recriminations that would be going on if similar events happened in a cricket world cup. Only ever had a marginal interest in the sport, and this world cup has pretty much turned me off the game for good I'd say (and nothing to do with the Aussies getting knocked out).

Can see why people are saying it's harsh but really, a professional footballer should always hit the target from a spot-kick. The way some people are carrying on it's like it was hard cheese and Ghana never got a chance to score. They got a penalty. A one on one from twelve yards. You have no right to complain if you miss from the spot.
"It was an easy decision to sign. I could have gone elsewhere, I had calls, but it never entered my mind it's not about the money."
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
I spend a lot of time despairing of the sport and wondering how something so clearly flawed in so many respects is so popular; I don't know how any father could look at a player rolling on the floor in a paroxysm of agony, only to be resurrected Lazarus-like moments later by the award of a free-kick or the brandishing of a card and say "Yeah, this is the sport I want my son to play".
Ultimately, I always come back to that quote by Denis Pratt (AKA Quentin Crisp) who said "It's no good running a pig farm badly for 30 years while saying, 'Really, I was meant to be a ballet dancer.' By then, pigs will be your style." That's how I feel about what you'd call soccer and I'd call football; it's my style. It was ingrained at an early age and can't shake it off.

"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
Think there's a difference between the goalkeeper being out of the equation and beating the defender basically fair and square and being denied a goal, and then having to beat the keeper in a penalty situation.
Ghana should score from the penalty spot for sure, but whether it becomes any easier when you've just seen your team denied a certain victory through what amounts to cheating is probably slightly debatable.
I know they're professional footballers, but it must have been hard not to stand over the penalty thinking "We just won the game, what the ****!?"
