Well not quite like that, but that's basically what they're saying here.

 

 

 

Luis Suarez bite: Ban upheld but striker allowed to train

Luis Suarez's four-month biting ban is upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but he is cleared to train with new club Barcelona.
A full explanation of the ruling will not be published until a later date.
Suarez's lawyers argued world governing body Fifa's decision to suspend him from all "football-related activity" for biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup was excessive.
The Uruguay striker, 27, was also banned for nine international matches.
Suarez was a Liverpool player at the time of his clash with Chiellini but has since left Anfield to join Barcelona in a ?75m deal.
Barcelona's La Liga season starts at home to Elche on 24 August.
At last week's hearing in Lausanne, Suarez's legal team argued he should be allowed to train with Barca during his suspension and that his ban should be limited to international football.

He should have been banned from professional football for the rest of his life in my opinion.

It wasn't the first time he did this, but the third. Seems he doesn't learn so no mercy!

Erm, not like that at all. He remains banned from playing in competitive games for club and country for periods originally imposed by FIFA. Just because they have allowed him to train and be present for games, it does not mean that FIFA have condoned his behaviour. Please do not use a misleading and sensationalising headline.
