As a matter of fact it isn't legal in football either. It is legal to slide tackle a ball in both football and real life, not another human being. In reality, some physical contact is tolerated as a consequence of a sliding tackle to reach the ball. Extremely risky sliding tackles are punished whether you hit the player or not because the goal is to touch the ball, not the player. Sliding tackles which threaten other players more than target the ball are always punished and are discouraged.

But it's still a shit argument to make lol, the rules in sports are in context of sports not in the context of ordinary situations in the street haha

Certainly the rules of boxing and MMA apply in the streets.

The whole 'in real life' hypothetical is silly. It's also illegal to slide tackle someone in real life .. By well hey that's legal in football lol.

Let's keep the arguments in perspective?

The key difference being that people expect to slide tackled when playing football. And this happened in a football match.

What are you trying to say? There are different standards for different things FFS.

If I get slide tackeld and my leg breaks, I won't be happy but that shit happens but as a player you have to accept this as a real risk of occurring. What I don't expect is to be fucking bitten on the shoulder.

People are misunderstanding me.

I'm not saying biting in football is okay or anything of the sort. I'm just saying for people who say "in real life.. he'd be locked up" etc, it's a ridiculous point to make in defence of the consequences he faces. Other points about intention, recklessness or even the expectation for it not to occur in football are valid.. Applying it in a normal every day life situation saying he should be locked up in stupid imo :doh:

Assaulting someone on a football pitch does not make you exempt from the law - Police would get involved if Chiellini pressed charges.

Suarez's latest statement on the bite is an utter embarrassment. Absolutely delusional. Probably best just to send him to the asylum.

I meant biting, headbutting and fighting other players, not tackles and challenges. IMO biting is worse than hitting someone. Childish behavior, and dangerous, he needs help.

What's he said.

On the bite, Suarez said...

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/28069689

"I lost my balance, making my body unstable and falling on top of my opponent," wrote Suarez in his defence to Fifa.

"At that moment I hit my face against the player leaving a small bruise on my cheek and a strong pain in my teeth."

In a document seen by Associated Press, the Liverpool striker added: "In no way it happened how you have described, as a bite or intent to bite."

In short he fell over and hit his teeths on Chiellini's shoulder, hurting it in the process. Basically turned into full troll mode or just incredibly dumb-he is basically taking the mic out of Fifa and treat this as an incident that he suffered from.
