Suarez - World's most ignorant man?


Ahead of Man U - Liverpool tomorrow I thought this might be an appropriate time to go on a bit of a rant on a player who I have grown to absolutely despise.... Luis Suarez. This guy is something else. For those of you not familiar with Suarez, he is a talented Liverpool striker who was recently suspended for 8 games for directing racial slurs (I am sure they can be found if you scour) towards Man U defender Patrice Evra. Suarez, of course, was quick to deny the allegations. However, his story of the events, wavered and then wavered some more and with a number of witnesses actually hearing him say these things to Evra as well as video footage and his own eventual admission he was found guilty and suspended.

Then came the excuses. His first beauty being that use of such language was commonplace in Uruguay where he is from. Really? First of all, I am not familiar enough with Uruguayan culture to know if that's true (if it is you need to get with the times Uruguay), but I am sure Suarez is not going around calling his friends what he called Evra. If he is I don't imagine they remain friends very long.

Then came one of the most audacious comments I have ever heard. Upon returning from his 8 match ban and doing this:  (click on image to view)

and then





Suarez went on the radio and said this little doozy "I knew what I did and there is a kind of football law that says 'what happens on the pitch, stays on the pitch and that's the end of the story',”. Shocking. This kind of stuff doesn't belong anywhere, let alone on a football pitch. The idea that football is some sort of brotherhood that should protect Suarez is insane. Listen buddy, just cause you look like a neanderthal does not necessitate that you have to act like one. Ok I am done.

2-1 Man U by the way.

Well I nailed that one didn't I. Suarez didn't disappoint either proving we were all wrong about him by not shaking Evra's hand and lashing the ball into the benches after the halftime whistle. Classy stuff....

about suraez's comments towards evra. In Latin culture (not just in Uruguay) the term "Negrito" is used for darker skin people as a nickname among friends, dark skin doesn't necessarily has to be black but even dark borwn and its not considered a racist term. even the color black is translated to "negro" in spanish and is comonly used in daily conversations when referring to color black.
now that said, im not saying suarez is completely faultless because he should have know better and he does seem to have some poor descions making issues regarding his attitude on the pitch!! but i do believe he might be a victim of culture change here (not sure how to say it correctly)

and personally if a guy got me suspended for 8 games i wldnt shake his hand either!!

ignorance is not an excuse

its the context and timing of how it was used. Not shaking hands adds to the ignorance.

Man, if you can't shake someone hand after a game ... then you shouldn't play at all. Show some class and learn some respect. Can't stand those douche bags at all. Get over yourself. Your not better than everyone else. It's just a game. HAVE SOME CLASS.

P.S. If a guy got you suspended for 8 games, you probably deserved it you moron.

Im a long time united fan and ive seen in couple blogs now uve mentioned man utd as man u. In case you didnt know, is kind of offensive since it refers to the plane crash that killed united players in munich long time ago.
