Er, sorry Oscar. No one waited to the conclusion of the match. You were just busy, so you didn't hear it. As for the consequences, they clearly had to escalate because the previous punishments have not had the desired effect on his behavior. Did they think it might be one additional game? It's become clear that Suarez's amazing football skills have become something of a denial-inducing hallucinogenic cloud that spreads to anyone he's associated with. If he was a lesser talent, he would've been binned long ago and reduced to a journeyman Twitter parody of himself. Ask Joey Barton.

Thanks for the moral guidance but I'm sure we're all capable of deciding all by ourselves who to support. You know,just like you lot kept telling us during the league title run in !

@ScRipt69- quit trying to be everyone's moral compass. Doubt an Internet troll has any right to tell people what is right and wrong. Do you armchair fans think you know more than footballers and ex footballers? They know the nasty things that go on during a match. They seem to think the punishment is too harsh. Think I'd lean towards what they have to say than some idiot on a keyboard.

We're all supporting Columbia because they play the better football. The World Cup is supposed to be determine by who's better at football, not who says or doesn't say the nastier things, remember?

As long as he keeps getting blind support. He will be biting someone else within a year of returning from his ban.

Scapegoat for what! Making an example out of people who bite other people. Tackles with intent to hurt are bad mmmkay, so is violence but if this was a court of law wouldn't biting be a more stricter penalty due to the nature of it, its a bite for crying out loud, its embarrassing more than anything, spiting is bad mmkay that should carry a very harsh punishment, I think more than fighting as it is a primal act where violence can be brushed off as tempers flaring and all ex-players seem to have a light hearted vue on it and say "yeh it happens" but spitting and biting, I doubt they forget things like that is disrespectful.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
