Good post match by Ole. Laid into the authorities about the packed season and the early kick off.

It's a tough one, obviously it's not meant offensively. Also not an offensive term in his culture but in ours it is. So he should be punished, not as severely as Suarez though.

How so, you don't even use the word, so how can it be offensive? You cant take a Spanish word that's similar to something in English and twist it to suit a racial agenda in a different culture. Anyone that's studied language knows you cannot literally translate phrases and terms in English. Well, you can, but you'll have the context completely out of whack and look like a total dickhead. Especially in Spanish and Italian.

As ive said back then, negrito is a widely used term. There is absolutely nothing racial about it. A couple of Argie lads I know say it to each other often.

I get that people are questioning it in regards to the ban Suarez got. But we all know that was bullshit and Evra called him a far worse term in Spanish.

The FA set a precedent when they banned Suarez. I don’t how they can’t not ban Cavani for at least a game like Bernardo Silva.

Despite using the same word, in its nature it's closer to Bernardo Silva's offence than Suarez's. I expect he'll get a one match ban and warning about future conduct, same as Silva did.

A couple of definitions
Sudaca - (Spain, offensive, derogatory, vulgar, slang) A Hispanic American, more precisely a South American, especially one considered to have Amerindian features or a non-European accent; spic/spick.

Sudaca is a colloquial term, used as a short way to call people from South American origin mostly in Spain.
The term became dark and xenophobic in the '70s and '80s during an era called la Movida Madrileña due to the massive waves of Southamerican immigrants to Spain. Nowadays, all over the world, people feel proud to be called Sudaca, and unfortunately, some others don't.

So yeah - Evra started the ethnic slurs and mixed race Suarez carried it on.
A pair of windup merchants winding each other up then Suarez gets hanged for it by the not fit for purpose and systemically racist FA

For what it's worth I think it's ridiculous if Cavani gets any kind of sanction for this.

I do too. Hes obviously not realised its culturally insensitive. Then when he has, he immediately removed it.

But the FA took a stance of zero tolerance. So what do they do?

Literally thousands of posts from us all on the subject.

Any outrage if/when Cavani doesnt get any sort of ban will be a really bad look. No doubt it will happen though.

I don't think it is culturally insensitive.
I think the FA backed themselves into a corner through their ridiculous and inconsistent actions in the past and their ill thought out racism code.

due to their mixed heritage - it's a derogatory racial slur.

I don't think either of them are racist - they're just a pair of win at all costs wind up merchants and should have been slapped with a ban and told that it's unacceptable and not to do it again.
Tugay was reported by 5(?) players for racist abuse in a match before this incident and the FA did sweet FA.

To who though? Someone that speaks a different language and has taken offence because it sounds like another derogatory term?

Did he actually say it, or did we make the at up to defend Suarez? Can't see anything official about it.

People in this country think it is. So has to be handled as if it is.

I dont know enough about the word or the people it offends to be able to say it isnt.

As mentioned though. We apologised to Evra over our handling of it. He was obviously offended. Even 10 years or so later he was clearly still bothered by the whole incident.

Whilst I don't think Suarez should have been punished, nor do I think Cavani should be, for consistency, I believe he should receive something (perhaps not 8 games) because it would be complete double standards again. Obviously against us too. It's a widely used term, Suarez is a person of colour, so can't see them saying it in an obviously malicious manner (there are plenty of other words for that, should they intended it). If they do nothing, it means they have lost the tiny bit of integrity the fuckwits were clawing onto.

I don't buy the culturally insensitive thing in England. It's not an English word that forms part of any culture in England. The misinterpretation of it doesn't ensure dark or cynical undertones.

Suarez said it on the pitch to get a reaction from an opponent. Bit different to Cavani here, isnt it?

I think someone said about the Silva incident from a year or two ago. Seems similar to that for me. Same word, different situation.

Without repeating the debate we've all had a million times - if the sentiment is the word and the racial connotation attached to it then should the context matter? Racism is racism and if the word is deemed to have connotations which align with the horrors of racism it should be treated as such, regardless of the context. I don't think that there's room for grey in such a serious matter, particularly in the current climate of the world.

It is different and the closest comparison is other people using racist language on social media. As others have said, probably best for us to keep out of it. But the Suarez ruling decided that context and different cultural uses were no excuse.

It's just interesting now to see Man Utd fans defending him using similar comments that they were attacking the people who were defending Suarez for using. Just shows the tribal nature of football I guess.

Cavani incident is clearly more innocent than the Suarez incident. It was a response to a friend and in Latin America it is mostly a word of endearment.

However considering he's a long time international team mate of Suarez and must know all the ins and outs of the Evra case and he's at Manchester United he can't claim ignorance about the connotations of the word in the UK.

Difficult one for the FA. I don't see how they can let it go by considering how hard they came down on Suarez.

Difficult one for the Mancs too, difficult for them to defend or be upset about the consequences considering the Suarez incident.

Definitely better for Liverpool supporters to keep out of it though I think!

I don't think Cavani should be punished here and nor should it really be compared to the Suarez incident however the FA made a rod for their own back in all of this, how they deal with it will be interesting.

As said above though it's probably best Liverpool supporters keep out of it!
