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.
Materazzi later on that summer admitted to saying ... "I prefer the ***** that is your sister", nothing racist at all, I'm sure worse has been said on the pitch.
