Suarez Receives 10-Game Ban

Luis Suarez has been banned for 10 games for biting the arm of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea last weekend.

On Monday, England’s Football Association charged the Liverpool striker, who pleaded guilty, with violent conduct and recommended to the committee that would be hearing the case that an automatic three-game suspension was “insufficient” for the offense. The three-man regulatory commission then met on Wednesday and decided on an additional seven-game suspension. Suarez now has until midday Friday to appeal the decision.

If Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre’s comments are anything to go by, it looks like they will be appealing. "Both the club and player are shocked and disappointed at the severity of today's Independent Regulatory Commission decision," he said.

    The player bitten should have taken a moment to directly teach the guy what he should have learned when he was 7 years old, and in a manner other kids teach some to stop the behavior. The ten game suspension would give him time for the new dental work.
