    So why is it that Suarez gets an eight match ban but Terry is facing criminal action? Both are allegedly culpable of the same offence yet one is dealt with by the FA and the other has the CPS involved?

    Crazy beans man!

    The maximum penalty for john Terry would be a fine of £2500.
    Thats a bit like the average working man getting fined about £4 relevent to Terry's wages , one rule for the rich eh !

    I thought this was going to about why African-Americans are over represented in the NFL and why they get to pull down all of the big bucks in a dispprotionate manner.

    Where are the Asians? Where are the Latinos? We need to make the NFL have more equal representation when it comes to race!

    But no, this thing is about Soccer.

    More points are scored by the foot in American football than goals are scored in a soccer match. Fact.

    Crazy beans man!

    the reason is that the Suarez incident was reported to the FA by Evra so the FA are dealing with it

    The Terry incident was not reported to the FA, rather a member of the public reported Terry to the Police so the police and CPS are dealing with this matter. As yet the FA have not got officialy involved.
