Sadly, was more likely than the usa winning the whole thing.

Also was better odds of England winning the whole thing.

Too bad Celebrity Deathmatch isn't still on. Then they could have Suarez vs. Zinedine Zidane.

Doesn't this seem like something that you could easily rig?  I mean, I guess if he is permanently banned it isn't good for his career, but, couldn't he just get a bunch of people to put down big bets in his name, and then do the bite intentionally?

My GF pointed out to me how often NFL players pat eachother on the butt.  I guess I had learned how to filter that out.

If it's likely enough to happen that you actually take bets on it, you probably shouldn't have set it at 175-1.
 
2014-06-25 01:03:36 PM
He placed the bet on June 12th too.. impressive.

I heard once, years ago, that part of that is because you can't feel touches on the shoulders/back/head due to pads and helmet.  Dunno if that is legit, I've never played anything but backyard football and nobody touched my ass.

Brilliant marketing ploy, that site is now getting their name out to millions of prospective customers for the price of a few minutes of data entry. Someone needs a raise.

So he bet $5.71?

Nah, these are just put up to get people in the door. They have seriously low betting limits on them, so the total liability is minimal.

Just play some Super Smash.  Kirby vs. Yoshi should suffice.

Fair point. And yeah, it's good from a marketing perspective. Didn't think into that dimension of it.

Hmmm that sounds like a lame excuse, I played rugby and we smacked each other on the ass because we were all ironic smartasses and thought it was funny
 
2014-06-25 03:16:04 PM
Huh? He didn't bite him! At least, having looked at the replay I see no conclusive evidence of a bite. Of course the guy from Italy is going to claim he was bit but given how much acting goes on that's not surprising. I'll believe he did it when it admits to it.

Confed Cup last year, against  Giorgio Chiellini of Italy. Video clearly showing Suarez going in for the bite.

Stop pissing on us and telling us it's raining.

So you're going to convict him based upon his reputation rather than the incident at hand? Guilty until proven innocent is your standard, not mine.

That doesn't like to me like a bite mark but hey I freely admit I am no bite mark expert. I never even bitten anyone, that I can recall.

I'm not saying he didn't bite him, maybe he did. I simply won't rush to judgement I certainly would not pay out a bet until I had more proof than what is currently available.

You changed your whiny tune, didn't you? From claiming the Italian made it up ("Of course the guy from Italy is going to claim he was bit but given how much acting goes on that's not surprising". It's not f***ing hard to see you said it. It's right up there) to "the incident at hand"?

Chances of being bitten by Luis Suarez if you've play on the same pitch against him in the last decade - around 1 in 2,000  (363 club league, cup and friendly matches since breaking through into the Nacional senior team in the 2005/06 season, 78 times for the Uruguay national team. Eleven players plus substitutes allowed.)

Chance of being bitten by a shark in your lifetime - 1 in 3,700,000 (source).

OW! LUIS BIT MY WINGER!

It'd just be a guess. A lot less dangerous than getting in a real swimming pool with Suarez.

As common as back pain and injuries are in sports, I would imagine it's because you don't want a 360 pound jacked up monster slapping you on the spine.

You're delusional. There is nothing contradictory at all between my two statements. Maybe the Italian did make it up. Maybe he really bit him. Neither would surprise me. My own view is that he didn't bite him and I refuse to believe he bit him without proof. Piling on by internet commentators isn't proof.

If only someone at the match had been recording it.

Unfortunately, as the match wasn't taped, and there is no video showing Suarez doing something he's done before twice, we'll never know the truth of the matter.
