Luis Suarez Ban: Is it Fair?
By now, everyone’s heard FIFA’s pronouncement on Luis Suarez and his inability to control himself. FIFA said he violated “Article 48”, which I assume prohibits players from being giant dickheads.
- Nine matches (including the rest of the World Cup)
- Four months of no football activity whatsoever: No training or playing for club or country, no supporting from the stands, no “administrative” activity (not sure what that means, but it could affect his transfer ability)
- Fine of 100,000 Swiss francs
- Effective immediately
Interestingly, Referee Marco Rodriguez’ decision not to take immediate action on the bite (which he did not see) allowed FIFA’s review board more freedom to investigate. They probably could have still banned him whatever Rodriguez did, but I think he did the right thing.
What do you think?
