Here’s Soccer Player Luis Suarez Giving Fulham Fans The Finger (Photo)

In what most certainly will generate further controversy for the Uruguayan soccer star, Luis Suarez, a striker for Liverpool, made his feelings clearly known regarding how he felt about Fulham fans taunting him as he walked off the pitch after he attempted to draw a penalty by taking a dive and was not rewarded by the referee for his flopping efforts during Liverpool’s 1-0 loss to Fulham. Yep, he flipped them the bird, a tried and true means to express one’s displeasure.

Now, I don’t know much about soccer, nor do I know much about this Suarez fella, but given the kind of crazy stuff that typically occurs in soccer stadiums around the globe, whether it be by the fans or the players, Suarez’s middle-fingered salute is actually pretty tame, but I am sure that will do nothing to quell the hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth sure to take place as a result of the soccer player’s gestural antics. You know, because everybody loves a good controversy, even when there’s really not one.
