John Terry to Appeal FA Verdict
.
Terry reportedly is considering an appeal after the FA found him guilty today of "using abusive language" towards QPR's Anton Ferdinand last October which "included a reference to colour and/or race".

However, today the FA gave Terry a four-match ban and a £220,000 ($356,356) fine following the player’s four-day disciplinary hearing for an Oct. 23, 2011 racial slur toward QPR’s Anton Ferdinand during their Barclays Premier League match.
.
Terry denied the FA charge, and has the right to appeal the ruling within 14 days.

"The penalty is suspended until after the outcome of any appeal, or the time for appealing expires, or should Mr Terry decide not to appeal," read an FA statement.

"Mr Terry is disappointed that the FA Regulatory Commission has reached a different conclusion to the clear not guilty verdict of a court of law. He has asked for the detailed written reasons of the decision and will consider them carefully before deciding whether to lodge an appeal," reported John Terry's staff in a statement.

Chelsea issued a statement that said: "Chelsea Football Club notes and respects today's decision by the Football Association regarding John Terry. We also recognise that John has the right to appeal that decision.

"It is therefore inappropriate for us to comment further on the matter at this time."
