    Ladies & Gents: Shalom and Happy 2012!

    Stop stirring, people swear all the time, Suarez was racially abusive. There's a difference!

    • Its my understand that,

      Suarez submitted a statement to the FA, in which he admitted to using language, that the FA deemed to be racially offensive. If this is true then for me, its a closed case! Suarez has said he will not appeal his ban and therefore he has accepted his punishment.

      The language he used may not have been offensive in Holland or South America, but whilst he's playing for Liverpool he is governed by the rules the FA set out. IMO the FA have got this right and that should be the end of it. I'm sure if Evra submitted a statement, which confessed to using similarly offensive language he'd be punished as well and rightly so.

      I think Liverpool need to try and move on from this, IMO it is damaging their reputation. Dalglish may believe Suarez and want to demonstrate his support for his player, but he is exacerbating the situation.

      I agree, everything that has followed the ban is trouble making, tribalism and is moronic and pointless.
