Updating a previous post, Chelsea captain John Terry has been suspended four games and fined £220,000 by an independent FA tribunal after a four day hearing at Wembley.  

Terry has 14 days after receipt of the written judgment to file an appeal.  

Though Terry had been cleared of the criminal charges stemming from this incident, it appears that the FA has decided to take action to prevent the proliferation of racism that has stained football in recent years.
