His incidents (multiple) with Evra.
His World Cup display of sportmanship against Ghana.
I can't remember a player with the same kind of rap sheet.
The Evra incident was a joke. Eight games for using a word that has no racist relevance whatsoever in his mother tongue. You ever heard Suarez talk? The guy can't say **** in english. So then FA, give every foreign player a class in what you can't say in your own language because if you translate it, it will turn out as an insult.
It was all for FA to score political correctness points.
However, in the same game, Evra repeatedly saying he would punch another player's face, that's all fine of course.
And if you can't find players with worse rap sheets you simply haven't watched soccer much, that is for sure.
