Suarez upset after getting booed at Olympics

Luis Suarez has shown the public how upset he is after criticising supporters who targeted him with abuse during Wednesday night’s match between Team GB and Uruguay. He accused the supporters of showing a “total lack of respect”.

Suarez has received the public backing from Edinson Cavani and Sebastian Coates. His fellow Liverpool team-mate, Coates, believes the crowd went too far after another game which saw Suarez being constantly booed.

The boos interrupted Uruguay’s national anthem which has lead to mixed press, giving Suarez defendants something to cry about. However, the fans weren’t booing the national anthem itself. They jeered when they saw his face show up on the big screen.

“I think they jeer me and they boo me because they must be scared of facing a player like me,” Suarez said. “They fear me, but that doesn’t affect me. I’m just hurt because we lost and we are going home. I can take the abuse … but I think it was a total lack of respect from the crowd to boo when we were trying to sing our national anthem. I think those things should not happen.”

Yes, Suarez, people are scared of facing a player like you. What do you expect when you have a nasty reputation for biting and racially abusing fellow footballers? Also, Chris Wood, currently on loan at Bristol, has gotten his name on the score sheet more times than you at London 2012.

The Liverpool striker is also incorrect about the national anthem jeers – as explained above. If you can take this abuse, why show yourself up by getting upset over it? Suarez spoke out recently about fans showing him respect, so I honestly wonder if the 25-year-old suffers from verbal diarrhea.

Nobody needs to explain Suarez’s unpopularity. In England, it obviously dates back to the race row between Patrice Evra and himself. He has built a reputation in the game for all sorts of unsportsmanlike behaviour.

Coates, another shameful Suarez defendant, said: “I’m tired of this situation with Luis. I think it has gone too far and I don’t like to see him treated like this. I know the kind of person he is and I think the abuse he gets is very unfair. He knows all his team-mates and a whole country are fully behind him and I think fans over here should leave him alone.”

    You know very little about football, and you are just a biased ManU fan who can’t critically think anything through. Your post if full of misrepresentations and lies, and it’s a twisted piece of garbage. You wrote all of this to justify the crowd booing a national anthem? you twisted all of it to justify your bias? The truth will prevail – that’s all I have to say. In due time…

    • What have I lied about, Peter? The fact Chris Wood has more goals to his name at this year’s Olympics? Or the fact Suarez was caught for abusing Patrice Evra? Please explain your view on the piece above because it appears you don’t like the way I speak about Suarez defendants. Truth hurts.

        It’s very simple. It’s so simple that people like yourself have decided to illogically follow the mainstream media in condemning a person who wasn’t “caught for abusing Patrice Evra” as you said. The simple facts are that:

        i) an obviously tainted panel of individuals decided that Evra’s word was more credible that Suarez’s when Evra’s reputation is nowhere that of an angel. For instance, in his early deposition he said he was abused verbally and that the word Suarez used was the translation of “nigger”. He later recanted this and said he didn’t think Suarez called him the equivalent of “nigger”. He said that “n” word was so bad that he would never even repeat that but then there’s a video showing him back in 2004 when he was playing at Monaco where he’s yelling out the very same word. This is just an example of Evra’s reputation being far from stellar.

        ii) Suarez was found guilty without any proof other than what his accuser provided. None of Evra’s teammates heard anything, not even De Gea who’s a native Spanish speaker. No formal civil court would ever condemn someone on the basis of the word of a man against another man without any proof whatsoever and without any witnesses.

        iii) the same tainted court spent days putting together a 140-page document to justify its bias toward the case. The document is leveraged to justify the decision, without any proof whatsoever. Again, any legal court would just dismiss a case like this flat out.

        iv) Evra told in his initial deposition that he had initially approached Suarez and told him “La concha de tu hermana” that literally translates to “your sister’s pussy”. Suarez, when asked, said he didn’t recall that or didn’t notice Evra did that – he could have just thrown Evra under the bus but he didn’t. Let me tell you a little bit more about Evra’s sophisticated knowledge of the Spanish language. The “la concha de tu hermana” insult is considered extremely offensive in both Uruguay and Argentina, but not so much in Spain or other Spanish-speaking countries. This is to say that Evra knew what he was doing and he was trying to get under Suarez’s skin by insulting him not only in his own language but also in his own “dialect” if you will. Has anyone thought about this a little?

        v) the FA tried to set an example of good will and fight against racism by condemning Suarez in a very doubtful way. They only succeeded in trivializing the true fight against racism. Racism is very present in daily life and the Suarez’s case doesn’t help at all because it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH RACISM. If you want to fight racism go out to your workplace, to the street, and do something about it!!!

        vi) another incident involving the captain of the English team, John Terry wasn’t considered under the same light by the FA, even when there is a recording and proof that racial abuse might have in fact happened. What are the differences between the Suarez and Terry’s cases? I hope you don’t answer because the police got involved first with Terry’s. That would be just lame because I understand you care about racism, don’t you?

        I could go on and on but much has been written already and in a much better way than in this post. Those who can read and hear, please do. Those who believe what is being fed to them by the media, political interests, and organizational clout may keep eating the cake all they want.

        Your post indicated that you didn’t think Suarez was right in being hurt about the booing on his national anthem. I disagree – I would love to see what you would do if your anthem is being booed. It’s not an excuse that it just happened because the cameras and the TVs were on him right at the same time – people have to be aware that the anthem is being played at the very same time. It’s a huge lack of respect and it shows most of those folks are not very educated. It’s bread and circus, and people gladly take it and consume it.

        You will do a better service to people all over the world if you just, for one day, remove your ManU shirt and give us an unbiased opinion about your rivals. I’d like to see that but I’m not sure it’s even possible.

    I don’t agree with you Dale. Booing a member of a national team during their national anthem is poor behaviour from the crowd. This is the Olympic games, not the Premier League. What occurred between Suarez and Evra, Suarez paid for in that arena. I wonder if the crowd would have booed any English national team member such as Terry for his errors in the Premier League… I think not. Coates is correct… it has gone too far.

    • Dale @Stretty News says:

      Suarez is the exception. Whilst he stays in England, Suarez will receive jeers because using terms like “negro” is unacceptable – forget the lame cultural difference excuse. It’s not the only excuse he used either. Suarez recently came out on television and spoke out of his arse, but you think it’s unfair for him to get this abuse? Jog on.

    @ Ton_burg – The crowd weren’t booing the anthem, they were booing Suarez, because he’s a filthy, diving, racist, cheating prick. How many times did he deliberately gain an advantage with intentional handball last night? 3 or 4? At least 2 in the GB box, one of which he was booked for. Swindling Suarez!

    It’s wrong to hate people, much less people who work every day at being as good as they can at something, but this guy is an utter disgrace, he’s bitten, handled and abused his way to the top of the most hated list
