Luis Suarez was banned for 10 games for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in April 2013. That obviously wasn’t enough.
On Tuesday night, with the biting incident on Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay’s Group D clash, Suarez embarrassed his club, country and family.
He will feel terrible tonight, and the entire incident is such a shame because he’s a tremendous player.
But people will remember Suarez now for his biting antics at this World Cup rather than his supreme footballing ability.
Banning him for the rest of the World Cup is not enough, because Colombia will beat Uruguay in their next game anyway.
