Who’s Next on Suarez Menu?

Who will Suarez next biting victim be?

This is the million dollar question if you are a betting person and happen to live in Spain. Betting houses in Spain are reportedly taking bets on who the next victim will be and to no surprise of anyone Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale rank 1 and 2 in their list of most probable victims.

If Suarez bites either Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo the payout is 51 euros for every euro you bet. The payout is much smaller if he decides to sink his teeth on Pepe. The Real Madrid central defender only pays out 21 euros for every euro you bet.

While I find this funny and wouldn’t surprise if people jumped on it, this is just the latest in the Circus that Suarez has become. Everywhere he goes now he will be scrutinized and harassed by opposing fans, and to a certain degree even by opposing players. It surprises me that a club with the history and legacy of FC Barcelona would willingly sign a player with this much baggage. They had players in the past that were controversial, Stoichkov comes to mind, but nobody had the baggage that Suarez is bringing to Camp Nou.

He will be a huge distraction and in my mind will hurt the team in the long run. He is an incredible player, but if I was in their shoes I would not take a gamble on him. To me the downside far outweighs the upside of having Suarez on your team.

Just in case you are wondering, I have 50 euros on Bale.
