The Return Of Luis Suarez

Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez is going to be allowed to play for FC Barcelona against Real Madrid is spite of sanctions imposed by FIFA. You will recall that Suarez got a little bitey with Giorgio Chiellini during a match between Uruguay and Italy. FIFA suspended Suarez for his actions for 9 international games and four months. Suarez appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport for help. Many, including Uruguayan president Jose Mujica, thought that FIFA’s punishment was too harsh. Sure, Suarez has bitten other people before but, you know, he was just hungry. The CAS said,

“The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has confirmed to FC Barcelona that the Uruguayan’s suspension will end at midnight on Friday 24 October, thus clearing him to appear in first official fixture for his new club, against none other than Real Madrid, should (coach) Luis Enrique opt to play him.”

I’m not saying that he should be banned forever or anything like that, but he should be forced to serve out the terms of his suspension. This just tells him that her can bite with impunity and get away with it. If I were a player on Real Madrid, I’d stay away from biting distance.
