I dont get it man. Within the rules is to make a play without a foul. Like a tackle, get the ball first and then the man, fair tackle. Shoulder to shoulder, fair challenge. Stand your ground and head, fair play. That is within the rules.
Tackle from behind, foul, potential red card, outside the rules.
Just because its punished doesnt make it within the rules, the punishment is the response for failing to follow the rules.
In this instance, with that prick Suarez, he benefited from his infraction and a penalty was missed. And was sent off in the 90th minute. And managed to break the rules to win a game. Being punished doesnt make it ok. It was a motherfuckers thing to do. If you're beaten, you're beaten. Let the goal in.
Sports often mirror society, and to suggest its within the rules to admit and be punished is indicative of what happened on Wall St where assholes were selling trash and at the very same time betting against it knowing it would fail. Its a bit better than that mind you... that was actually legal.
