Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

Did anyone catch the ESPN commentator's comment when Suarez scored. He said something like "That, I'm afraid, is the work of a cheat". At the time, I couldn't stop laughing, but I've seen many fans who are angry with this (mainly Liverpool obviously, but some others as well). I'm wondering if any action will be taken against the commentator or not. What do you guys think should or will happen?

Did Suarez handle it purposely? If he did, then yes, he's a cheat. If it just hit his hand, then the commentator should publicly apologise.

i dont think it's the place of a commentator on worldwide television to call players cheats.

Agreed. I do not understand why they are appealing to some. Especially when its a derby game. How on earth any United fan could walk around with the City/Liverpool crest around his neck I do not know. They're obviously catered to the people there for the day out and blind to the passion and animosity in derby matches, saddening as well that these people are ever slowly becoming the majority instead of the clueless minority.

It looked when watching and even on that gif that he puts his hand towards the ball so it would fall nicely for him to just put it into the back of the net. I don't think the commentator is wrong at all.

that doesn't mean you should be trumpeting it on worldwide television.

questionable or it looks poor are much more suitable turns of phrase. what if suarez comes out and says it was an accident and he regrets it happening? then the commentator looks like a right tit. well, more than he already does.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens

Well, it's a tough one. Let's face it, Suarez is a cheat. Handling the ball in this game may not prove it, but his diving has proved it in the past, so first things first he is a cheat. If the commentator thinks it was deliberate handball then he has every right to call him a cheat in my eyes, but it's tough because should he have done it on national telly. I don't blame the commentator for speaking his mind though.

Are we at an era in football now that even a commentator will be punished for speaking his mind? Is everything that robotic? We have players/managers/coaches/referees all talking with their hands over their mouth now for fear of punishment for their own opinions. I can't believe there are fans calling for his head. You got the goal, you won the tie, you're in the next round in a controversial fashion then just move on instead of cursing the commentator for showing a bit of character and humanity.

Things in football like this need to be looked at in a way where you should think how you would feel if you were on the receiving end of a thing like this. If it was Mansfield going through in the exact same way, Liverpool fans would be calling Mansfield cheats and it would be a complete 180.

It's happened, the team who are allegedly responsible for the controversy won the match, the opposition manager has moved on and yet they are still bringing up things about the game. It's just... Remarkable.

Sometimes it's just a reaction. I'm not saying that it's not cheating because it is. Commentator went a little overboard but he wasn't wrong in calling Suarez a cheat. At the end of the day, I don't blame Suarez. It's not like it's the first time it's happened anyhow.
