If I wasn't convinced Liverpool would fall near the drop zone if they dump him, I'd say someone in Italy or Spain would probably overpay to get him out of England.

So karma just bit Suarez in the ass again. How quaint.

That he hasn't already had both hands and his tongue chopped off is the reason soccer sucks.

I'm at the point where I hope his ass is gone by next season, but Suarez's acts are mostly of petulant stupidity.

If someone like Matt Cooke is still in the NHL, I'm not going to scream bloody murder if Suarez is still allowed to play.

7 games in 2010 for biting a player then 10 for this bite. nice punishment regime.

10 games is fine, but he'll probably be shipped away to somewhere else and not serve the entire suspension.

Hell, if I was running Liverpool, I'd just tell Suarez to go home now.

Sadly, the FA can not take into account incidents involving the player in question that occurred in a foreign league.  Dumb rule considering the circumstances, but that's how it's judged.

But it would be stupid if they didn't remember it when making this ruling.

Oh, he should be allowed to play, but without any hands.

I'm a Manchester United supporter, so it'd be easy for me to start hurling stones here. Instead I'll just say that Liverpool needs to seriously look at whether Suarez is an asset (his goalscoring) or a liability (everything else). Personally, I don't think keeping Suarez helps Liverpool in the long run, especially when the club is going through some fallow years at the moment. For a club that puts a premium on "tradition," Suarez is a blight. They should get what they can for him and cut bait.

I'd say that's a pretty reasoned take on things, partisan as it may be.

If there was one game ever that defined the Luis Suarez experience, it's this one.  Awesome assist, stoppage time dagger goal, unforgivable handball in the box, gnawing on an opponent.

I think that's a fair assessment.

As a LFC supporter, I'd say bang-on.

LFC supporter here, spot on assessment. I'd be short changing myself if I didn't say as well that I hope Luis gets some counseling. He could be a truly world class player, but he needs help first.

Pretty much this. Before Sunday, one could make a reasonable argument that the positives outweighed the negatives with Luis Suarez. No one can make that argument now.

/Of course, one could've reasonably countered that argument before Sunday.

And this, as well.

As a Yank I've aligned myself with Everton (Tim Howard) and feel you're pretty much spot on as well.  That being said, my husband is a Tottenham supporter so he was happy to see Suarez score that late goal to tie Chelsea.

Ten games is a bit steep. He got eight for racially abusing Evra. The bite in the Dutch league was a very different situation and he drew blood. This one didn't result in any sort of injury. Aguero got nothing for his two-footed stamp on Luis, why does this nibble get a 10 game ban?

Media storm. Had it not been Suarez (compare with Defoe who bit a West Ham player back in 2006 and got no punishment at all!) then it wouldn't be ten games.

Defoe got a yellow card. Once the referee takes action, the FA can't review it or something. It's dumb rule, but it's on the books.

I think they should also require him to get an annual rabies shot.
