What a Bloody Shame!

I'm talking about Zinedine Zidane... his glorious career ending LIKE THAT!

I wonder what Marco Materazzi actually said to him to cause Zidane to lose his rag.. the people on the radio are speculating that it might have been a racial remark.

Seeing that before all matches - each team would publicly commit themselves to making football (and the wider world) a tolerant and non racist platform... if it was somehow proven true, in that Zidane had been subjected racial abuse... should Italy be stripped of its world cup title?

Stripped of the title... and it be given to the team that includes the guy who headbutted him? ;-)

it's been suggested that Materazzi may have:

a/ Called him a homosexual;
b/ Insulted his mother...

Eiher way (or *neiher* way), you've got to feel sorry for a good guy who was obviously provoked beyond endurance.

I heard that Zidane was called a 'muslim terrorist'

"Son of a terrorist whore" apparently. A nasty bit of provocation if ever there was one.

You don't start channeling Ian Birchall when you're in a bad mood, do you? :P

Very foolish of Zidane to spoil his last game for this. Mind you, I have always admired Eric Cantona since that super flying kick. I doubt if there's a Man U. supporter who didn't.
But Zizou should have saved it for after the game then without any cameras around he could have given the guy a right pasting.
