Here is the podcast.
This is some of what we read from the SMS line. What should have been done?
Bite him back lol.
Remove his teeth and let him play. Yonas.
It's ridiculous that a body like FIFA is gonna punish Suarez for biting when FIFA a corrupt body beyond belief which directly is responsible for taking a big bite of the Brazilian economy directly impacting the growth for the bear future for this developing nation, pity! Vinay
Why is it only the British media making a meal of out the Suarez bite!!! The Brit's are making more deal out of it than the Italians are!! Is it becausehe got England out of the WC?!!!!
Suarez is no doubt a good striker and a player! He should be heavily penalized but a ban would be too drastic!
Where I'm from;The first time children bite another in a nursery they get a warning, second time they get suspended and the third time expelled. There is no excuse for a grown adult to bite anyone! Jen
Why is it only the British media making a meal of out the Suarez bite!!! The Brit's are making more deal out of it than the Italians are!! Is it becausehe got England out of the WC?!!!! Because really the way it looks looking at all the British tabloids is that the Brits are a bit sore from the two goals he scored and are using it to cover up for the WC failure!!!
Boxing, rugby and all human contact sports have this issue and should have serious action taken, if not bound to continue

I would like to what his school teacher's feedback on his school teacher and friends, looks like childhood behaviour, this how he release his anger, looks nice guy sorry for him, may be one more chance then banned for ever. Kamal
Option2..if he doesnt want ban he can play but he should give 50percent 2 years of match fee to the effected players and 50 to charity...he will forget biting...maq
3 year olds would be banned from school, where in society is biting acceptable behaviour? He should be banned for a minimum of 1 year. Heard the comments of some re British media I'm scottish & I think they are correct as they have seen Suarez doing this before and at that time it was incomprehensible. No one is bigger than the game, FIFA, UEFA & I'm sure Liverpool will hopefully throw the book at him
The Brits are making a big deal of it because their Country values are strong on Fair Play ! The guy needs a shrink and a Ban, one year. Alan
No excuses, a wrong is a wrong, either a ban or play in small teams no official games
Ban him for life and let him earn his money with advertising for toothpaste.;) Martina
I think Suarez just needs a pacifier during every game.
Was suarez booked after the incident?
I believe liverpool had fined him before
Maybe soccer players can be given shoulder pads? - Nizam
Its all for the good of the game
If not handled correctly, expect more from others
This is criminal behaviour. If he did it on the street he would go to jail. That is where he belongs.
End of the day football is the dumbest and softest game on the planet. Without the soap opera acting and the scandal there would be nothing for footballfans to talk about for hours and hours on end. Ban them all, especially the biters.
Forget the ban, give him a part on the Walking dead.
I think the best treatment is Suarez getting bitten himself by some other player - Nizam
I assure u Liverpool won't ban him from business perspective, lets not forget that he is a player worth 50 + million £. But he deserves a long ban
Suarez has done gave damage to his own career and thrown the sport in disarray but it is not insurmountable! Such a talented player needs HELP!!!!! Surely FIFA or the Uruguayan FA can assist in providing the necessary medical assistance.
The world does not need to denounce him! The British media pounced on it to take the heat off their hurried departure from the World Cup; loss to Sri Lanka by one innings and ONE ball at Lords and Lewis Hamilton's miss at the Austrian Grand Prix. He has not caused a death!!!!

He did it twice & got away with a ban for a few matches both times, he does it the 3rd time and if he gets away with a years ban or so then he will do it once again-He shd be banned for life-when u commit a mistake u say sorry but suarez defends himself saying this happens in football...crazy stuff
Sorry but fifa failed to even give him a red card on the spot via their ridicoulous referee and kept him on the pitch till the end. Thats not serious???? Suarez is not an athlete Nicola
Should join UFC :)
Suarez had bloodline from transuylvania fyi with dracula maybe?
Hi James, he should face a lengthy ban. I am not Brit but guys who accuse the British media have they seen the Italian tabloids.
UK media is upset because He scored two goals against England.
Hi again James. It is a reasonable suggestion to say that the British have a strong sense of Justice it's part of their national identity . I'm generalising but of course each Country is different And having played Professional sport myself then I can say that all different countries have a general national identity and not all play fair! Anyhow it's a rough sport but Biting is too far and a Ban is needed.
How would 1 compare Zidane' s headbutt to this act? Justice must be served.
He is a good player, good for football. Give him a suspended sentence of life ban, if he repeat the same in the next three year. Also he can only play if he undergoes psychological treatment and certification by a specialist
Knockout Uruguay of the tournament, so that he is shamed as entire team and counter will feel what he did and also ban him for life
Confiscate his teeth!!!
Pepe had a headbutt to the German Muller and was booked but not bitey suarez
Hi Kamal again, I am not supporting him, I am a rugby frik and I know what sort of tackle goes in, is he made life threatening bite, what is different between biting and making hask tackle. He needs is mentoring. Thks Kamal
