True! It all started with Suarez, they handled that one poorly.
What happens now with Ferdinand though? Nobody was ever really convinced either way on what Terry did or didn't say, lip reading experts, players who were close by etc.. Rio actually came out on twitter and endorsed a racist comment towards a fellow professional. It has already been reported to the police, so surely we will have to go through this all over again?
If we don't and they let it slide, the term "choc ice" is fair game to be used freely on the pitch. How can the FA punish someone for doing it if they let Rio off now? It's an ugly mess.
