Statement from Chiellini

I'm willing to bet there were a lot more profanities in the original Italian.

Suarez must be insane or close to it if he keeps doing this.

the only other reason that doesn't involve either being insane are either:

he tried for a headbutt and his giant ass teeth caught him

he was trying to unsettle Italy

Let's talk about Marchisio's "foul". There's no way the referee misinterpreted something that was happening 2 meters in front of him. I could understand a yellow card, but a red card? This guy reminds me a lot of Byron Moreno.

he was stepping on the dude's ankle with his studs. The reason Suarez wasn't booked is that no one saw him, but Marchisio was literally right in front of the ref.

Which is why I could understand a yellow card, but sending him off for that is just baffling to me.

I don't think so (he didn't seem to be attempting to actually play the ball). To be honest, I almost would've sent Balotelli off for that flying knee to the back of the head, don't know what the fuck he was trying to do there.

He is such a skillfull player but he is a disgusting cheat. If it is proved that he has bitten someone again he should get a long, long ban. Not sure its actually proved yet - is it?

They just showed some pretty good shots of it. Definitely a bite with clear intent. POS move. Dude should be banned not only from this tournament, but from the sport for life.

They looked absolutely terrible without him too, this is just prolonging their tournament for the round of 16.

So bummed that I can't watch the Italy v. Uruguay match later :( That is certainly going to be one hell of a game.

I wasn't. Until Suarez's vampiric tendencies showed once again.

Even though Italy is out and Uruguay go through, that's the last we'll see of Suarez this tournament, I'm sure.

It looked pretty conclusive that he reached into Chiellini's shoulder but I don't think the bite was. Chiellini certainly thought so though.

So much whining about flopping... even though basketball players do it too?

Ghana could certainly get through. But the odds, as already stated, are in the US' favor. Portugal is all but out of it. Not a fan of US myself, don't dislike them or anything though, mostly indifferent. If I thought they had a chance to win it all and make all the other nations curse the heavens that a nation that doesn't give a rat's ass about the sport won on the biggest stage I'd be less indifferent and might actually get excited at the possibility and root for the worldwide pain.

As an American who doesn't care about soccer/football/futbol, that's kind of why I've been watching the World Cup. It has, however, gotten me to understand why people actually enjoy soccer/football/futbol. Still don't like that they seem to arbitrarily add 5 minutes to the end of a match even if one team is winning.

it's not arbitrarily. Every time they stop the play, set up for a corner/free kick, have injures (or 'injuries'), take too long to get subbed out... it all adds up.
