Luis Suarez says things like what happened today in the Uruguay-Italy match "happen..."
Sure they do...
"These are just things that happen out on the pitch," Suarez said. "It was just the two of us inside the area and he bumped into me with his shoulder, and that's how my eye got like this as well. There are things that happen on the pitch and you should not make such a big deal out of them."
The bitten in this case, Chiellini, thinks nothing will happen and he told Sky Sports Italia just as much:
"It's a disgrace. The referee decided this game. If either team should have gone through, then it was us.
"Giving a red card to Marchisio and no red to Suarez decided the game. There was a different treatment for both sides and that decided the game and decided who went through.
"When we had 11 men, they weren't a threat at all and we were in perfect control, but then in the end, [the red card] was decisive.
"But then Suarez gets away with whatever he wants because FIFA want the top players involved. He bit me, and the sign is there. Now [FIFA] have got to have the courage to take action."
The guys at ESPN discuss
Thoughts are coming down on Suarez that include everything from a lifetime ban (not just internationally) to expelling Uruguay from the knockout stage and giving their slot to the next man up in their Group.
