    TEN match ban?

    On the third one, if you think it appropriate for a second offence to give a higher penalty than the first offence as the first penalty was insufficient to prevent it happening again (which you suggest and I agree) then the ban should be more than seven games. Against this it can be argued that the FA don't generally increase sanctions for a second offence, except for straight reds in the same season. but against that it can be argued that biting is exceptional and meriting an exemplary sentence, as it was given in Holland.

    But yes, we need to see the FA's reasoning.
