It was Mark van Bommel, a Dutchman, who kicked Xabi Alonso in the chest in 2010. Zinedine Zidan, a Frenchman, headbutted Marco Materazzi behind the play in 2006, although he was supposedly provoked by racist remarks from Materazzi (still doesn't make his reaction appropriate, but does make it more understandable).
As for why these things happen, some guys do stuff like that on purpose and try to make it look accidental (van Bommel was famous for that); other guys just lose their cool and make a bad decision in the heat of the moment (Zidane, Brian Mullan's tackle that broke Steve Zakuani's leg a few years back in MLS), but for Suarez, I think it's deeper than that. This is the third time he has bitten an opponent. The guy needs counseling.
It's a shame he pulls all this crap, too, because he's a phenomenal talent.
