I definitively express that Luis Suarez IS unequivocally the bully in this ‘school’ called world cup and professional football/soccer. One who seems to have gained canine prowess specific for the 2014 world cup in Brazil.

Suarez canine affair in full swing.


As the senses (seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, feeling) of the world are immersed in the world cup capital Brazil, you can’t help but be amazed at the power of sports in bringing people together. The flip side is that in its competitive nature and ability to touch hearts, evokes strong emotions that may lead to a divide.

As I follow this exhilarating affair, I can’t help but equate some of its happenings to the classroom. Most recent is the action of Uruguay’s trophy and treasure Luis Suarez. Let us all re-visit our classrooms or schools. Can you recall that one student in your class or another that was/is troublesome, provoking, bullies everyone and then gets away with it? That is exactly how I feel about Suarez’s actions. Why would he unfoundedly decide to viciously bite an opponent in the middle of a game? I didn’t know canines were allowed in the competition. No, wait, maybe he is cannibal. Oh dear, that wouldn’t be good so I am hoping that I am one hundred percent wrong, which I know I am.

Is that Suarez? hmmm (thinking)



I think Suarez continues to display these unacceptable, irrational & erratic behaviours because he has an enabler in FIFA. They allow him to get away with them. Think about it. It has been reported Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini is his third victim in four years (at least that we know of ) https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blogs/world-of-sport/life-crimes-luis-suarez-102534436.html    This website will get you up to date.  It is just like within the classroom. If penalties are not imposed on students for undesirable behaviour displayed then the child learns it is okay to do it. This is the case with Suarez & you can’t help but wonder why. In some schools, it is the consistent poking at the administers that may occasionally force a sanction and it is often a slap on the wrist. Sounds familiar? Oh yes. FIFI has given Suarez a four months ban, suspended for nine international matches and fined £66,000. This action was only forth coming after the senses of the world immersed Brazil, vehemently condemned the action and what you know? Suarez was rewarded with what some may say is a slap on the wrist. Others may contend it is too harsh, but, if you make your bed hard, in it you must lay undisturbed.

Uruguay intends to appeal. I can see why. It is the world cup season that comes once every four years and each country wants that coveted title. I am wondering, did the managers of Uruguay’s football/soccer team remind Mr Suarez of this? Maybe not. It was taken for granted that their treasure would come to no ‘harm’ as is customary. There is no mistake that Suarez is a very good football/soccer player but his attitude stinks. We try to encourage our children in schools to portray positive attitudes always, honesty and good sports-man-ship. Brilliance is nothing with a poor attitude. In the case of Suarez, his talent will eventually means nothing as it stains of bad attitude are getting more. It may lead to his eventual expulsion…well that is only if FIFA stops being an enabler. Otherwise, he will continue to play professional football/soccer until he graduates.

What say you? What happenings in world cup reminds you of the classroom/school? Please share. All views are welcomed once expressed respectfully.
