Fifa Opens Suarez Bite Claim Disciplinary Action

Luis Suarez could be banned for up to two years if he is found guilty of biting a player for the third time.


Banned for up to two years… if found guilty?  It is this kind of behaviour that we don’t want our kids to copy.  There is no place in football for this kind of behaviour.  And we mustn’t forget this is the third time he has done this if found guilty.  I watched the video clip and it sure as hell looks to me as if he lunged for that player with his nashers…

There is clearly something wrong with this man’s head to keep behaving like this, unless of course he is just a bloody bully on the pitch.

Is two years long enough if he gets found guilty?  Nope I don’t think so… I would ban him for life.  We don’t need people like that in the game.

Facebook crashes …

And the world comes to an end… and it is breaking news. Oh yes there was mass hysteria as Facebook crashed at 9am… and for half an hour the world ended for those who spend all their time on Facebook, poking, liking and sharing as if there is no tomorrow.

Breaking News

The crash happened at around 9am, with the Facebook blue branding displayed alongside the message: “Sorry, something went wrong.”

The problem also affected Facebook’s apps.

By 9.20am, the site refused to load at all, with the message “service unavailable” shown on a white background.

However, by 9.30am users reported the site was functioning again.

And across our screens, Sky News classed this as a breaking news event

Facebook crashes

Seriously though, how can you call this Breaking News…. for the life of me I don’t know why any news channel would even warrant this as breaking news.  It is not as if the world would grind to a halt, or we had to take shelter, or we had only 5 minutes to live before everything we know was obliterated.  It is a social media platform… something we can live without. Believe it or not.

Do you know what?  Before Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and all other social networking platforms became part of our lives… we survived.  Instead of sitting there and posting what we had for breakfast… we actually went out and spoke to real people, face to face.  How nice it was.

Before sitting there, waiting to get to the next level of some game, we interacted with family and played games where all the family could join in.

Before kids sat there glued to the computer or TV screen playing some role-playing game or other, they went to the park; kicked a ball around; played with other kids.

No wonder kids are pasty looking and piling on the pounds… the most exercise some of them get is getting up to switch the computer on or getting the laptop out of its bag.

Yes I am on Facebook… but if it crashes it crashes… end of…   No need to get my bowels in an uproar because I can’t like a post where someone has just checked in to McDonalds or Burger King and going for the 99p whooper.

Sky NewsFacebook is good to speak to friends and communicate with family… but it isn’t the be and end all of life.  And for the life of me it isn’t breaking news.  Come on Sky News… get some perspective here… Breaking News is real news stories… stories that affect real people and that highlight all the atrocities in this world.  It isn’t to report that there was a mass of people pulling their hair out because they couldn’t poke one another on Facebook.

Should children of separated couples divide their time between their parents’ homes?

Psychologist Penelope Leach, whose parenting books have sold millions, has caused controversy by claiming that there’s evidence that separation from their mothers “reduces brain development” and might give rise to “unhealthy attachment issues”. Do other parenting experts agree?


What a load of bollocks… to put it bluntly. What causes children emotional distress and probably causes lack of brain development, is having to be piggy in the middle with two warring parents. Children are resilient, if a relationship breaks down children need to know that it is not their fault that mum and dad no longer live together and that both parents love them dearly.

They also need to bond with their fathers and having weekends at dad’s can be beneficial in developing that bond.

All the likes of this article does, is give ammunition for those women who refuse to allow their kids proper access with their fathers. Now they will use this as a reason why?

Unfortunately all too often, kids are used a tool to bash the absent parent with… and anybody who does that is not worthy of the title of mum or dad.
