Suarez's punishment was clearly outlined in the FA's report. With all the people asking why Suarez got a longer ban (including members of the media), it makes me wonder how many people actually read it.
With only one witness which was Evra who has used the race card on previous occasions, most notably at Chelsea groundsmen, and has caused numerous problems in the French team. I wouldn't believe him if he said the sky was blue.
Terry should not even have been charged by the FA as he had already been cleared by a court. You should either have a legal case or a football case depending on the severity, not both.
Why anyone would want to read FA reports baffles me. Bitter Blue I take it.
I'm a red actually. Just explaining the FA's logic with regards to the length of the bans.
And Evra didn't play the race card in the Chelsea case, someone else (Mike Phelan I think) claimed they heard someone say something racist towards Evra.
People might want to read the FA reports to get a better idea of what was alleged to have happened. Most people I talk to about it have no idea about anything to do with the case and just regurgitate misinformation given out by the media.
Good god this is getting boring now. How long has this been going on for now? nearly a year isn't it. Some footballers are cunts, shocking. Move on.
