Can never beat a pair
Biting in rugby union is generally a six monther across domestic, international club comps & internationals. Dylan Hartley copped one a coupla years back.
Lot more opportunity to do it in the fifteen man code too, what with scrums and rucks.

I largely agree with Faaip (not happy about how often that seems to happen lately). I'd say Roy Keane on Haaland is worse than what Suarez did last night but can scarcely think of many other tackles I would put on the same pedestal. Even most tackles we brand a disgrace aren't out and out assaults
Ben Thatcher on Pedro Mendes probably the worst thing I've seen on a football pitch, possibly
Schmacher on Battiston is probably the worst thing I've seen.
&, much as I love him, Paul Davis sucker punching a Southampton player (Glen Cockerell?) and busting his jaw was pretty poor form too.
Yeah Schumacher a good shout.
Did you watch Baddiel and Skinner back in the day? They did an awesome re-enactment of it on their Phoenix segments. Random.
Anyway I read that it would be unprecedented for them to give a club ban for anything other than a drugs ban. Would expect that to continue here.
I think the theme song was "Pele, Pele, Pele was shyte; he was worse than Jason Lee..."
IIRC it grew out of their "Old Football was shyte" thing for their world cup progs.

I'm slightly miffed that Suarez hasn't, and presumably won't, face any criminal sanctions for his behaviour to be honest. Being bitten by someone is so far removed from what one could reasonably expect to be on the receiving end of whilst playing in a football match that it must surely fall outside the consent to harm that one would acquiesce to when taking part. It's an assault, pure and simple, there's no way it can be dressed up as part of the game. Not that what Keane did could be considered to be either; it just irks me that so often the limits of the law seem to end at the touchline, for no logical reason whatsoever.
Anyway, Uruguay seemingly doing their best to make themselves appear like obnoxious and thoroughly objectionable oiks by accusing Chiellini of pointing to an old scar, and saying Suarez's head inadvertently fell onto his shoulder.
Well he's right, it wouldn't be quite as big a deal if it was someone else as they wouldn't have form for it.
