PLAYERS: Luis Suarez
Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has a biting problem. The 26-year-old has been at the center of a number of controversies throughout his career, but the biting seems to generate the most buzz. As you can see from the video above, Suarez appeared to bite Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic in the arm during a match over the weekend. In November of 2010, Suarez was given a seven-game ban by the Dutch FA for biting a different opponent.

An investigation from the FA will determine how long his latest ban will be, but it is expected to be quite significant. Now onto the good stuff. Mike Tyson recently decided to start following Suarez on Twitter. See the connection there? During an appearance on “The David Glenn Show” on Monday, Iron Mike was asked about it. “I just sort of got on the the Twitter thing and I said hey, um, this is an interesting guy, let me follow him, check him out, see what his jo...
