I don't think Purple Aki/Rousey/Mozza is bitter, I posted that as a wind up.

I even posted a smiley showing I was on the wind up and he still missed it. As I said, he's not on the ball tonight.
Besides, everybody knows the ones who are really obsessed with us are United fans anyway....
Yeah but mate, the fact you're trying to wind them up and they bite is because they are so used to it being for real that they don't even want to miss a chance to defend themselves. It was a joke to bring the Mancs into it in that context, but it's not without substance. To call Evertonians bitter and Obsessed and Mancs obsessed also can never be a wind up because it's not like they aren't completely without anything behind them. If you said Norwich or Bristol then okay, but just hanging the fish out there hoping someone will bite is just daft.
Are people defending Suarez by saying he's not as bad as other players?
Suarez is nowhere near as bad as a lot of players, but he has done thing that are detestable, so it's like arguing that one person who kills someone isn't bad because someone else has killed more.
Suarez has done terrible things that could hurt people; the lunge gif that's going round, his stomp on Distin to name two. He's also dived and play acted, his diving has gone so far that a red card given for the "foul" upon him was rescinded and completely wiped from any records, and he suffers now from not receiving free kicks and even penalties that he arguably should do. He's also done things that just make people dislike him, IF the things he said were not said with racist connotations and he was completely misquoted, he should at least understand why the person on the receiving ends of these words reacted the way he did and shook his hand to end it all when given the chance but he didn't, creating even more of a fury. Add the handball in the world cup, which we all would have done, and the handball at the weekend where he didn't need to admit it, these two things aren't done with completely malice but all go against him with his reputation. His reputation of diving and doing a lot of daft things that is completely merited.
He might not be as bad as Keane for that tackle or Cantona for attacking the fan, but there are too many people defending him as if he's completely innocent. This, in turn, turns people against him. Think of the difference if Luis Suarez would have shook Evra's hand to end all of that nonsense? They did eventually but the stigma already stuck to him.
