F*** you, Luis Suárez

It didn’t really sink in until today, after reading a couple of pieces that agreed with what I felt at the moment it happened. At first it was just an annoyance of sorts, something itching in the back of my mind. However, as the weekend went on and the imagery became more and more vivid in my mind, I was left with one thing that had to be said, and that was;

F*** you, Luis Suárez

A one game ban is not enough for this arrogant little excuse for a footballer. Too strong? Not strong enough, I would argue.

In Friday night’s dramatic World Cup quarter final Suárez kept Uruguay in the tournament illegally by handling the ball on the line, preventing a sure, game winning goal. Ghana’s Gyan missed the ensuing spot kick and Uruguay won the penalty shoot out against a clearly nervous Ghana. Simply put, this was the wrong result. It should be Ghana v Netherlands playing for a place in the World Cup final.

Instead we are stuck with Luis Suárez and his ugly persona.

Why so harsh on the young striker? In baseball they have a saying ‘act like you have been there before’. This comes into play in numerous situations in the game, but most of all it means, if and when you win, don’t rub it in on the opposition, try and win gracefully. Well, someone needs to extol Luis Suárez on the virtues of ‘act like you have been there before’.

The rule in football is if you are sent off you are supposed to go straight to the dressing room. Somehow Suárez managed to avoid this Friday night, and we were presented with the sickening imagery of Suárez celebrating Gyan's misfortune (in missing his crucial kick) in the tunnel like some sort of bratty, infantile teenager who got away with some inane misdeed. To celebrate cheating at this level showed a complete lack of tact or indeed class.

This wasn’t the end of it. Bizarrely Suárez’s team mates stupidly decided to carry him around the pitch on their shoulders in triumph after their cheating ‘victory’ over Ghana. So not only Suárez showed a complete lack of class, his team mates were guilty of it too. They showed absolutely no sensitivity to the fact they had just crushed Africa’s dream, instead paraded around the field in ugly fashion in full knowledge they were only there after cheating of the highest order.

Amazingly the little idiot then compounded everything by talking in interviews about "the real hand of God". Suárez, you little simpleton, you couldn’t hold a candle to Diego Maradona, your entire career won’t add up to five minutes of the most mundane match in the entire career of the brilliant Argentinean. Diego was one of the greatest players of all time. You? Nothing but a dime a dozen cheat. Enjoy your fifteen minutes of fame, and the subsequent Karmic retribution.

See that’s the beauty of it all. The Sporting Karma Gods do not take kindly to the lack of class Suárez showed. There is no doubt in my mind that Uruguay will fall foul to some misfortune at the hands of the Dutch tomorrow night. Rest easy, those of you who didn’t enjoy the arrogant little pup’s ignorant ‘celebrations’, the Sports Karma Gods will have the final say, and for Uruguay, it won’t be pretty.

F*** you, Luis Suárez


You stay classy, Uruguay
