Imagine if Football Manager threw up a scenario like this ...and in the media they allow you to comment freely ...what would you say '''Managers'' ? .
He has matured in recent times in my opinion. For this Ivanovic incident, he's admitted he did it and apologized, whereas in the Evra-Suarez racist thing, Suarez always denied doing it, when everyone knows he did. Even when he got officially charged, he still made excuses. So at least he's changed in that sense.
I'd love to have such unpredictable features in the game. If an injury can take away your player for 10 months, other uncontrollable events resulting in bans couldn't ruin the game. After all, it happens in real life. Also, FM can get boring after 15 seasons, it would be nice to shake things up a bit, add some dynamics...

So he's matured because he admits he does stuff? In my opinion no progress has been made. Its not like he could deny it like the Evra thing, because it was over the news (the video). Plus he did the same thing a while back at Ajax. I just see back pages of newspapers with Suarez and go why... why the hell would you even do that?

I once had David Villa suspended for 1,015 days for "intolerable actions". So I think that is possible.

There was evidence he abused Evra, yet he still made up excuses. Now he isn't, so he's matured ever so slightly. Not defending him, just pointing it out.
I see where you are comingfrom, just saying I suppose you could contest something like insulting someone, that could be mistaken as harmless in his own country. But I'm pretty sure biting doesn't com under the same grouping.. although I could be wrong in Uruguay Biting could be a way of saying hello informally :D :P

Maybe Suarez gave Ivanovic a love bite :P
There's evidence of the Suarez-Evra incident?

Where? :O
I thought it was lots of witnesses, and interpretation of lip sync. Suarez did call him I think the N-Word but apparently it is commonly used in general conversation back in Uruguay. No hard evidence due to it being off the ball, and not wearing microphones.
Despite having spent a lot of time in Europe, and England specifically one can almost accept the cultural differences that made suarez think using the n-word was 'acceptable'. But thats just making an excuse, anyone with half a brain who has spent time in another country would learn what and what is not considered acceptable.

Look at the racism evident in eastern europe but the complete lack of racist footballers from eastern europe playing in the premier league.

His bite was born of frustration, he had given away a penalty and was on for a goal when Ivanovic blocked his attempted dribbling by being in the right place at the right time. A normal, well-adjusted person would vent that frustration with profanity aimed at themselves or their situation. Someone with obvious 'anger'-issues (i hesitate to use anger as it is frustration more than Joey Barton style anger) is more likely to strike out, biting is reverting to a child like demonstration of displeasure.

Should we forgive? Probably, at least he didn't convert him in the way a zombie does.
Should we forget? Hell no, put him on a register!
Should he get help? Well Duh...
Should he have bitten himself instead? Definitely.
The emotions behind him biting Ivanovic are clearly pretty much the same as the ones I (and I assume pretty much everyone else) feel when I fail at Pro Evo and want to throw the controller at the wall. The difference is that Suarez apparently has inadequate self control and gives in to these urges. He definitely needs help.
Agree with Joeyraptor as a professional player in the public spotlight his behaviour is disgusting and certainly a poor example to all, he really needs to learn to control himself .
