    He'd completed his ban in Holland hadn't he? Was due back the next game Ajax were scheduled to play.

    As for comparing it to Defoe, well that's just lolable. One was provoked (and seen by the referee), the other wasn't. As one was seen, it can't have been banned for.

    The joke is the people defending him or calling it "insignificant"
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Unfortunately they don't get to consider all the scumbag stuff Suarez did that he got away with.

    Suarez pays the price for his record I'm afraid, as he should, and if there was an element of "to discourage the others" about it then I can't see he can take issue with that either - bloke needs to learn how to behave himself as, remarkable and worrying as it may be, he is a role model for those who know no better

    Yeah, you're right actually. He had 1 game left when he moved to Liverpool.

    Which left no mark, nor bruise.

    "Ivanovic was checked over for injuries by Chelsea after the game – there were none – and the Met police officer who visited the club's training ground also looked for bite marks or bruises. He too saw nothing. The officer, acting with the police on Merseyside, asked Ivanovic whether he wanted to press charges. He did not"

    They were basically the same thing. And worse, the ref saw Defoe do it.

    Provocation is not an excuse. Especially since, by their own standards, what Mascherano did (a bad tackle) is nowhere near a bite (10 match banning offence). This is like saying a punch to the face is OK if a bad tackle is made prior to provoke the player. Make sense.

    EDIT: yes, it can be banned for, even if the ref has seen it.

    Retrospective bans can still be made whether or not the ref saw it but in 'exceptional circumstances'.

    The FA | Football Rules & Governance - Not Seen Incidents

    Go to 3:30 and watch the rest. 'Exceptional circumstances' includes situations which go beyond merely upgrading a yellow to a red but ones where the severity of the transgression would garner more than the usual 3 match ban. Clearly, the Defoe instance applies if Suarez's is worth 10 here.

    EDIT/ADD: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2...wsstory.sport7

    So they said the Defoe bite wouldn't warrant more than 3 games. Did I say the FA were a joke?

    Totally agree, he did Mirallas in that derby match too and that was worse than the Distin one.

    Yeah there are loads of examples. Something Liverpool would do well to remember before pulling out the anti-Liverpool conspiracy card for the millionth time.

    I like it when this happens though. The level of butt-hurt is hilarious. This thread is QED of that.

    I'm hardly a massive Liverpool and Suarez fan, but I definitely think something like this is much worse. What Suarez did was incredibly weird, bizarre and more than a bit concerning, but from what I've seen, what he did didn't cause any extreme pain or damage.

    Obviously he's a repeat offender and all that though, which does complicate things a little bit for me trying to come to a conclusion on whether the decision was fair, harsh or lenient. But I hardly think anyone trying to argue for it being harsh should be branded playing the anti-Liverpool conspiracy card.

    It's not just anyone doing it though.
