David Conn: Why did the FA treat John Terry more leniently than Luis Suárez?

The Football Association regulatory panel that found John Terry guilty of using the words "fucking black cunt" towards Anton Ferdinand may, at least partially, have accepted Terry's defence that he did not use the words as an insult. It is otherwise difficult to understand the panel's apparently lenient sanction, of banning Terry for four matches, while Liverpool's Luis Suárez was hit with an eight-game ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.
