The Boss: not blinded by the bite

Bruce Springsteen has commenting on the on-going controversy about Luis Suárez's World Cup biting incident, commenting that "Biting has no place in sports."

The Uruguayan striker, who also plays for Liverpool, appeared to bite Italian player Giorgio Chiellini on the shoulder in the World Cup clash between Uruguay and Italy on Tuesday (June 24).

In an interview with TMZ, Springsteen asked: "What are the rules about biting in the World Cup? There probably should be one."

Mike Tyson's biting of Evander Holyfield during their 1997 World Heavyweight Title fight should be considered "the last bite," Bruce added.

Springsteen recently joined The Rolling Stones on stage in Lisbon to sing Tumbling Dice. At the Stones' New Jersey gig in 2012, he also sang along with the band on the same song.
