Soccer Players Are Now Biting Each Other At The World Cup

MichaelKolander by MichaelKolander on Jun. 24, 2014

Every four years, the World Cup is hailed as a beautiful  display of sportsmanship and international friendship. And nothing says sportsmanship and international friendship like sneaking up behind an Italian guy and biting him on the shoulder.

If only American sports were this sophisticated.

In the 79th minute of the Uruguay vs. Italy match, Luis Suárez got a taste for Italian. Since there wasn't a Sbarro on the sidelines (despite my repeated suggestions), he decided to try the next-best thing. That happened to be Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini, who in all fairness, probably does smell a bit like a delicious bowl of Spaghetti Aglio e Olio.

Chiellini did not take the bite as a culinary compliment, and immediately fell to the ground in pain. Suárez, perhaps realizing he had just attempted an act of cannibalism in-front of the entire planet, fell to the ground as well, attempting to pretend he had inadvertently slammed his teeth into Chiellini and was also injured.

However, Suárez is not likely to convince many people that the bite was accidental, mainly because he's bitten players twice before in his career. That's right: not once, not twice, but thrice! He's also been suspended for using racial slurs against opponents, which leads me to believe he's not exactly a stand-up individual.

At any rate, Suárez is not likely to see any more playing time in this World Cup. But not to worry. He can always take up boxing. (Source)

I don't think anyone signed up for biting. This is assault whether you're playing a sport or not. If you can't play fair, then you shouldn't be playing at all.

Soccer is no contact. Touch some body and *whistle* red card

Yeah because he fell with hi mouth open on his shoulder. You clear see him pressing against his teeth after the impact. There was no bite, just a tactic to have the game in their favour. Hasn't been the first time a player has tried to do a phantom ploy to get a penalty kick or free kick. Ask Portugal, Brazil....

I thought this was something you grew out of at 3ish. His parents obviously didn't tell him it's not a good look lol he's an idiot and should be banned for life from professional football.

if someone knocks out a few of his teeth, I assure you that he will cease such behavior.

This is his second time, he's been caught, many red cards before, he is a dirty player, if your not that good get dirty, they shouldn't let him play at this level if this is the best the world has. Haha

Ban him from playing football NOW. Such a bad example - do we really want youngsters to think this behaviour is acceptable at any time?

Stupid and savage.Gee son, you want to see some idiots bite each other and act like subhumans today? Well, it is happening at the World Cup. In America they think that Hockey isn't a game unless they are beating each other's faces in and knocking out their teeth. . That's no better.

What kind of dumb ass question is that? Why would anybody want biting to be legal in anything much less a sport? Stupid.

You may need to look at the latest photo before making an ass of yourself. Close up pics clearly showed a very apparent bite in the shoulder.

I say, give one guy on the field from each team a tazer. They can pass it around throughout the team ... but each team gets one. You never know who might have it, but you'll always be ready for it...

So sick of this flailing and cheap stuff like this. Use replay and if it's a legit foul, cool. If it's some BS like this, give a penalty kick. Or just let them really hit each other.
