Learning at the World Cup that using your hands can cause controversy, Luis Suarez has decided on another unusual way to settle things on the pitch -- biting people.
Saturday's big Eredivisie match between PSV and Ajax proved to be a pretty bland affair that ended in a 0-0 draw, but in injury time it got weird. Ajax's Rasmus Lindren was shown a straight red for a harsh challenge on Ibrahim Afellay and that kicked off a scuffle between the sides. In the middle of that scuffle was Suarez, who was momentarily enraged to the point of biting PSV's Otman Bakkal on the shoulder like some kind of a zombie vampire crossbreed. He didn't push him, punch him or kick him first, he just bit into Bakkal like he was a delicious hamburger.
Even though the referee was right behind Bakkal when this happened, Suarez somehow wasn't punished at all for his Tyson-esque chomp.
After the final whistle, Suarez and Bakkal peacefully left the pitch arm in arm, presumably because Bakkal's infection had already reached his brain.
