Evra said he said one thing in a certain manner. Suarez said he said something else in a different manner. The FA believed Evra despite no evidence other than Evra's word. By saying he said something, even something unoffensive, Suarez fucked himself over.
They used the argument that in the heat of the moment Suarez could only have spoken in an offensive manner. By that logic Clattenburg could only have been speaking in an offensive manner considering he was arguing with the Chelsea players.
It's all a load of bollocks. No real interest in tackling racism, just trying to look good.
