"We await the written reasons tomorrow before making any further comment."
What rankles with many critics of the ban is that it appears out of proportion when compared to punishments handed out for similar offenses.
Writing on the CNN World Sport Facebook page, Jason Noblit said: "It should have been five games. No doubt he deserves to be punished, but the FA is too happy to demonstrate it has double standards for players like Suarez."
But others disagreed with Moustafa Ali adding: I think they gave him the right punishment , especially he has blemish record against other players like Evra and Bakkal."
During a Premier League game in 2006, Tottenham's Jermain Defoe was shown just a yellow card for biting Javier Mascherano, then playing for West Ham United.
At the time, an FA spokesman said: "We are unable to take any action because the referee has already dealt with the incident.
"FIFA regulations prevent us from taking retrospective action."
Suarez's ban is also longer than that of former Manchester City defender Ben Thatcher, who was suspended for eight games after his elbow on Pedro Mendes left the player unconscious.
The FA also issued a further 15-match ban suspended for two years, while the club fined him six weeks wages and prohibited him from playing for six weeks
Suarez's ban is by no means the most severe handed out by the FA.
In 1998, current Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio was banned for 11 games after pushing a referee while playing for Sheffield Wednesday.
Five years later, Manchester United and England defender Rio Ferdinand was suspended for eight months after missing a drugs test.
Another Manchester United star, Eric Cantona, was banned for nine months after launching a kung-fu style kick at a supporter during a game at Crystal Palace in 1995.
Di Canio, Ferdinand and Cantona all went on to enjoy successful Premier League careers, despite their off-field problems.
Suarez could yet follow suit with his name on the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year Award -- voted on by his peers -- which will be handed out on Sunday.
And if he does pick up the prestigious trophy, you can be assured that there will be the gnashing of teeth around the football world.
