Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

What a Piece of Shit

Associated Press

LONDON — A report by soccer authorities says Liverpool’s Luis Suarez called Manchester United’s Patrice Evra a “Negro” seven times in the incident that led to Suarez’s ban for eight matches.

The report by an independent commission from the English Football Association was published Saturday. It says that when Evra asked Suarez during the October game why he had been kicked, the striker replied in Spanish: “Porque tu eres negro.”

That translates as “because you are black.”

Evra said he would punch Suarez if he repeated the comment. Suarez replied: “No hablo con los negros” — “I don’t speak to blacks.”

Suarez is from Uruguay and contends the use of “negro” in that country and other parts of Latin America is inoffensive in certain situations.

The panel found his argument “unsustainable.”
