    Hello Nigel I'm not a big sports fan first off, however I came across a post and read how you defended your perspective and I became captivated, your logic, ability to keep the conversation on track and keep a level head made the post a rewarding read. I just had to comment.

    I do think it works fine. Always room for improvement but don't think in needs changing just for changing sake.

    Can't believe that Lescott hasn't spoken about it, also it appears (not proven) that as the players who heard the abuse where on the same team as the player abused it doesn't count. And I can't believe that the press haven't actually used this case a parallel, bearing in mind the evidence and word used (allegedly)

    I don't really remember the case being anywhere near as high profile, it does appear it took just as long to get a decision by the FA. Don't understand why Lescott, Howard and Yobo didn't go to the hearing either.

    Just appears that as Suarez admitted it then that is the difference. Still doesn't make me think that Liverpool could of dealt with this a lot better.

    However still odd the FA stance as such a deal was made of the spainish fans in 2004, and the Emre case was after.

    I am going to contact the FA to see if it's possible to get the full ruling.

    Just found this!

    Then there is the football authorities’ less than glorious record of investigating abuse. Four years ago, Joleon Lescott recorded his experience of making an allegation of racism to the FA ? reporting that Newcastle midfielder Emre Belözoglu had called Joseph Yobo a “fucking n**ro” (Belözoglu denied the allegation). Lescott claimed that because his team-mate Tim Howard said he had heard “fucking n**ger” the allegation was deemed unproven, leaving him disillusioned. “It felt like we were on trial as much as Emre was,”

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2007/mar/20/newsstory.sport9 can you get any more facts on this case and why he got off? Seems fairly similar to the Suarez case!
