Luis Mother[bleep]ing Suarez.

I seriously hope he gets banned for several games. Shit like this absolutely shouldn't be tolerated.

He's been banned 7 and 10 games in the past for biting. As well as 8 games for racism. What's the next step, is the question..

Obviously it's outrageous and he should be banned and everything but I couldn't help but laugh when they were showing the replay and Jon Champion was just mumbling "Surely not again, surely not again..."

 

One of the few moments that livened up a pair of fairly dead games if I'm honest. Though this year's tournament has been much more exciting than 2010's (.6 more goals per game will do that).

The multi-million dollar question we should ask is 'how would one build a case to defend Suarez?'. Often, it's easy to victimise the offender for a certain offense based on crude assumptions and some level of prior information; but we very rarely consider the opposing case. I'm not saying that such behaviour is justified on any level, but an analytic treatment is worthwhile. We know that FIFA isn't going to do that because they are (..), and run things straight off their rulebook on top of whatever (...) certain powerbrokers within receive and try to make it look legit. So, consider that as a conundrum.

 

I have an impression that he could only be suspended for International games. It is unreasonable for the local FAs to issue punishment for offense committed outside of their jurisdiction, but FIFA might have some power over what suspension they issue are to be enforced by certain members in games played under their jurisdiction .But I haven't read the FIFA rules recently, so someone else might want to double check on that. 

 

On another note, Cassano should have started. Di Natale should have been selected (let him retire after the World Cup). Also, Sweden would have done better than Portugal - don't you think?

No, Sweden is a joke. As I'm sure you know, they had the opportunity to play in and lost. As for the Suarez punishment, well, you'd think LFC would punish him if the English FA doesn't have the ability to.

FIFA have the ability to ban Suarez domestically as well as internationally, but it's unlikely to happen. Suarez and Uruguay's tournament is pretty much over now though but the real kicker for Italy is Godin who scored yesterday shouldn't have been on the pitch as he should have been sent off against England.

I actually think that LFC should stick by him like they did with the Ivanovic and Evra incidents. One rationale for doing so is that he is their key player and with all the speculations on potential transfer, issuing their own punishment just gives him a reason to move - something that LFC cannot recover from (much like Tottenham last season, regardless of how much they receive). With LVG at ManU, this will probably send LFC back into Oblivion. Especially if Uruguay FA decides to back him later on today, there's no reason for LFC to punish him. Any punishment is likely to be handed down via FIFA and only enforced domestically by the English FA if they are mandated. 12 months might be something they would work off, realistically that means 10-15 games. Any publicity can become good publicity - I'm sure there are still plenty of clubs who would want him in their team. Just think of him like other troubled stars in the football circle and beyond.

Yeah, I'm just saying from a fan's perspective I don't give a shit if she's the star player. I want the team to hold him accountable themselves. There are greater things than football in the world.

Pumped for Germany vs. USA. A good start so far :)

A solid, but not an enchanting game by the German team so far. Though I guess that's understandable if a draw is sufficient for the group lead.

Also one more goal for Ghana and my prediction will be true, even though I think the US team would deserve it more.

I would've expected more against a Portugal that knew it had no real chance of going further, and without a completely fit Ronaldo
Maybe without the Boateng and Muntari issue it might have worked, who knows. But this way I think the best two teams made it, so that's good.

Nah, I didn't expect much from the Ghanaians. African teams choke every year. I.e. Ivory Coast.

One of our better defensive games. Offensively we were a mess, but we're through to the kockout stage, so that's all that matters.

Belgium hasn't had a very cohesive effort but has quite a bit of individual talent, that's for sure. (Hazard, Lukaku, De Bruyne, Mertens)

I think they have a few players capable of changing the game on their own, which is especially worrisome given the defenders we have at our disposal.

Besler and Fabian Johnson have played great.. Gonzalez did well last game as well... So that's 3/4 of our defence right there..

Looks like it's going to be a Germany vs Netherlands final. I was really hoping Argentina would make it to the finals but i can't see them beating Netherlands at the moment.

Kind of sucks, i was hoping to see them in the finals.

 

Anyone have some predictions for the knockouts?

The Dutch almost blew the Australia game. I wouldn't be surprised if El Tri knocks them off. #CONCACAF

In addition to Brazil and Columbia going through to the Quarters, my predictions for the remaining games are (probably horribly wrong like my group stage predictions):

 

Netherlands v Mexico

Costa Rica v Greece

France v Nigeria

Germany v Algeria

Argentina v Switzerland

Belgium v USA

 

I expect to see a variation of Germany, France and the Netherlands in the final. Columbia are the only none-European team I could see in the final.
