Again? He got suspended 7 matches when he bit someone in the dutch league while playing for Ajax


This. Its not the first time.

I think they should suspend him for a full season. That way he might learn.



Around the Network

The results are in: banned for 10 matches



A lot of people are arguing that you get less for racism than you do for violent conduct and that's a bad thing...

I personally believe it's right.

Racism is just words (at least in the context of these cases) ultimately harmless but violent conduct is a lot more telling and lasting.

You don't though, you typically get three matches for violent conduct and for racism you get 4 (Terry) or 8 (Suarez). For whatever reason the FA think biting is worse than punching someone, trying to ruin their career with a leg-breaking challenge or racially abusing them. On a totally unrelated note, good thing Cameron waded in on the argument, eh?

The FA aren't saying that biting is worse than racism.

He's getting a 10 game ban because not only has he been in trouble before, he has bitten before (i.e. repeat offence).  

If he makes racist remarks again he will no doubt get a ban in excess of 10 games.

Although the FA have to change after that McManaman tackle... that was a complete joke!
