what, by pushing the defender with both hands off the ball to get him out of the way in order to give himself a free header?
what fine sportsmanship
As someone else already mentioned...any striker would do that to get a free header...if he's caught he's penalized, if not he get's a shot in and potential goal.
I was referring to:
1) Suarez shaking hands with the ref's after the game(something I've never see him do until now),
2) He concern for Terry even though Suarez would not have seen a yellow or red card for his collision with Terry....in most instances, the offender tries to show sympathy to con the ref into not giving a card....not the case this time....Suarez appeared to genuinely take an interest in Terry's injury.
3) What appeared to be his willingness to fall to ground and get up and on with the match vs. looking for a free kick
classic. so you ignore the biggest part of the game which was his blatant bit of cheating to equalise and praise him for shaking the hand of the match officials that allowed him to get away with this piece of cheating.
he then seemingly deserves credit for showing concern over a bloke who screamed in agony after nearly snapping his leg and, finally, for getting off the floor without moaning?
lets not pretend that Suarez is anything other than a rat faced little weasel with the morals of a street walker desperate for her next crack fix.
You make it sound like he's the only striker out there that would have blatantly cheated to equalize as you put it...I think it's a mute point b/c any striker would do whatever they could to score and as I mentioned, if the ref caught it then the player would be penalized...if not, the goal stands...
By no means am I saying Suarez is a model sportsman...my initial comment was geared towards signs of sporstman like conduct from him that was never there before...
You may want to watch the replay of Terry's injury again...to me it was Terry's own doing as a result of Suarez trying to weave in and out around him.
The guy arguably is one of the best players in the league...scoring goals out of nothing...he's not liked for his diving antics which I admit he has done, but make no mistake about it, his skill with the ball is incomparable to most in the premiership.
