  • Well yeah, and if some one had listened to you & betted on france they would have been royally screwed.:))
    Anyway, I started off supporting France but that unfair penalty early on made us all start supporting Italy and Zizuo dint deserve to hold that trophy after what he did. So it worked out fine in the end.:)

  • D.u.h.

    And any man with integrity would've stoop up for himself when the rules and the refs don't stop racism or hurtful and degrading remarks on family and religion.

    All I'd say is well done Zizou...and what a head-butt at 34! Floored him.

  • The true strength of a great man is revealed in moments of extreme provocation. Thats the reason Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela are so respected.
    I am not saying that Zizou should have acted like a saint. But physical violence isnt the way to take your angry out on a sports feild. If it was so, all the australian criketers would have had cracked skulls by now. Everyone who has every played a team sport knows the insults that are thrown at you by the opponents and the audience. And the best way to reply to them is to shut them up by your performance on the feild, not head butting them. Zizou isnt the first player to have been insulted on a football field but he will be the one who will be remembered as the one who couldnt take it.

  • I'm not saying Zidane shouldn't have got the red card...you know that's a different issue, and ppl have moved on...I mean no one is above the game.

    BUT, what I'm saying is that there is now an explanation for why he did what he did.

    And it is absolutely sad that the rules and the game cannot punish a man who is now in hindsight as guilty as Zizou, if not more.

    And hence I can understand why he took action.

    Reality - "The true strength of a great man is revealed in moments of extreme provocation. Thats the reason Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela are so respected."

    Dude, this is not a freedom struggle. This a sport...a pastime. It's football.

    Get it??? Don't compare game to such seriousness. There's more to life than football and hence Zidane, human as he is, could not take it.

  • I know its not a freedom struggle. And that statement was in a seperate paragraph and was not an analogy between football & freedom struggle. If you have any more doubts refer back to the comment. It was statement about provocation and retaliation not about football and freedom struggle.

    Get it?????????

    By Anonymous Reality, at 11:13 PM  

  • No don't get me wrong dude. What I meant is, Gandhi and Mandela taking in the provocation and finding another outlet for their retaliation is a totally different thing. I wanted you to understand that.

    In the larger sense, for them, there was something to be gained out of it by keeping quiet. And it's true...what they did was completely OK.

    But this is football. What do you get out of remaining quiet and playing...a cup. Which is not larger than life itself.

    So what you're saying is he should take it all in...let Materazzi free and let the laws handle him, which DID NOT and WILL NOT happen.

    Tell me, which law and which rule has taken care of Materazzi now for his blatant racism and sick provocation??

    Think about it. No hard feelings. All I wanted to say is do not compare what Gandhi did to what Zidane did. Both are different. The former had a mission. The latter is just trying to play for millions and has been hurtfully provoked over his religion and family, and he knows no one will take care of that.

    So there is reason to why he did what he did.

    That's it.

  • ok boys relax already. Neither of you are related to the guys and neither of you will even meet them so relax. shuush

  • what i was saying is that these insults are pretty common on any sports feild. and i dont think zidane was facing that for the first time. we have heard more "colourful" insults than that at the college level, we used to give it back in the same way and then smile at the guy who used them, it worked better than headbutting, believe me.
