Materazzi is innocent. i am mostly italian and i have great love for my country. Zidane is a scum bag with a quick temper. no matter what materazzi said ther is still no reason for zidane to have headbutt him. thats just plain stupid. 8-)

simonb123, just go home and stay there. I`m portuguese and yes, Ronaldo dives a lot. That`s why I think he`s not such a great player asmant people sayes. But there`s a site link posted on the 2nd page of these commentaries. See the number of fouls and dives of Portgual and France. France won versus Portgual with a Penalty Kick. It was, there`s a foul. But why don`t you talk about the 2 times the same diver Cristiano Ronaldo was grabbed inside the box? The ref saw it and didn`t point the spot! Why? Is it a coincidence because France weares Adidas, the biggest sponsor of FIFA World Cup? Was it because France was so afraid of Portugal that they spent the days before the game saying we were divers? Just see the stats. Oh, and clean your head because it is full of sand and take the things in front of your eyes. See it clean...

can someone answer my question?
why are soccer players such pussies?
i mean come on everytime someone slidetackles for the ball they are always grasping their legs as if they broke it or something. it looked like zidane barely hit him and the italian guy or watever is on the floor crying like a little bitch.

Depends where you live, in some areas of the uk, when your white its possiable to be discimindated against, espically places like Iver, Slough etc, its very easy to get desciminated against.

Fact is i have never discriminated against anyone, doesnt stop it happening to me tho.

As for Zadane, im 100% behind him.

Italians are known for diving, as are a lot of latin based countries (Italy, spain portugal etc) its just they way they are and the way their football is play.

Zidane is retiring anyway, so theres not much that FIFA can do to him. FIFA support the stop racism campaign, therefore they should come down on anyone who makes a racest comment, banned from internatinal football is the only way to show they will not tolerate it.

Zidane should not of done it, but i dont think badly of him for doing it.

materazzi should not of said what he said, and i do think badly of him.

There are other players in theworld cup, from other teams that need sorting but thats a different subj

i doubt anyone white would undestand racism, especially with all its history. zidane shouldnt have done it but it doesnt stop him being one of the best football players ever. and in arabic cultures like algerian where zidane comes from, tweaking someones is one of the worst things you can do, but i dont know what it means.

That was pretty much the best thing I`ve ever seen in a soccer game. Especially since after Materazzi pulled his shirt he said If you want it that bad I`ll give it to you after the game. The only thing better than the actual clip is all the edited clips with stuff.

I liked both teams (Two of my top three favorite teams, Ghana being the third), and while I am disapointed in what Zidane did, I don`t quite think it was uncalled for, by what the guy said to him-or at least, what I heard was said to him.
The French and the Italians both played well.

I dont watch sports, nor am I a fan of France or Italy. Im judging this situation on two human beings, without knowing either one existed beforehand.
we`ve all gotten angry before, so I do have some sympathy for the guy. and if you try to anger someone, expect a bad reaction. the guy who got hit got what he deserved.
on the other hand, depending on what the guy said its different. if he was saying "that was a bad shot" or something like that, then its inexcusable. but if the guy really DID insult the other guys mom/race, then its really not that outrageous. like teh old saying, "if you cant stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen"
and theres the pathetic I-A-B people who drag race into this, who use this to insult a nation or say an entire team is good/bad. way to put yourself at a low level. you deserve to be head-butted.

That was totally un-called for. My brother (who hates soccer) decided he loved that guy after he did that. I was just screaming at the TV about how he screwed it up for his team. Even though I was rooting for Italy. :)

I GREW UP IN A PRETTY TOUGH NEIGHBORHOOD IN MEXICO AND EVERYTIME SOMEONE WAS CHALLENGED, THEY HAD TO STAND UP FOR THEMSELVES. IF THEY COWERED, THEY WOULD BE GANGED UP ON AND BEATEN UP.
THOSE OF YOU WHO GREW UP AS MOMMY`S BOY/DADDY`S GIRL DON`T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SITUATIONS LIKE THAT. YOU WOULD PROBABLY RUN OFF AND TELL YOUR MOMMY.
WHERE I COME FROM, INSULTING SOMEONE`S MOTHER IS THE ULTIMATE OFFENSE. USUALLY SOMEONE ENDS UP HOSPITALIZED. AMERICANS SAY - YOU SON OF A B`TCH!!! BUT THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS PRETTY SOFT AT INSULTS. INSULTS IN OTHER LANGUAGES LIKE SPANISH HAVE THIS EXTREME ANIMOSITY AND PROJECTED EMOTION THAT REDUCES YOU TO A STATE OF WORTHLESSNESS.
I SAY MATERAZZI CROSSED THE LINE. I DON`T KNOW IF YOU PEOPLE CONSIDER GRABBING AT OTHER MEN. TO ME THAT`S A PERSONAL OFFENSE AND DEMANDS IMMEDIATE RETALIATION.
PROBABLY A CULTURE THING.
I EMPATHIZE WITH ZIDANE BECAUSE MY SOCCER COACH KICKED ME OUT OF THE TEAM WHEN I BROKE SOMEONE`S NOSE FOR GRABBING MY CROTCH.

He didnt let the whole team down, cos france are rubbish at penalties anyway, like england.His sending off didnt make much difference. I agree with dave- i dont agree with him head butting, but what matterazzi said was out of order. I heard about this Italian lipreader who worked out what he said to zidane, and it wasn`t nice, especially as his mum was seriously ill in hospital a few hours before the match. And france were diving a lot in that match anyway.

I just been reading about this in the news paper , apparently the thing that was said to Zidane ( according to a lip-reader , and translated was ) ;

He was called the equivelent of "dregs" , and he was called `a son of a terrorist whore` , this sparked the most insult as his mother was pulled into hospital hours before the match.

we should think about from where the hell do these hipothesis come from?? think about this, no one has heard what they have said to each other. not even experts about lip reading have been able to understand what they said each other, the images aren`t enough clear. second of all, neither zidane nor materazzi have declared what had been said. some tell from where the hell do these hipothesis about what materazzi said come from!!
some journalists should think about what they write 50 times before doing so, specially if it`s all about putting the words into someone`s mouth. they should think about the consequences, many stupid people now think that materazzi said those things just because a journalist guessed so. even mopre, some people could get too much overreacting about a religious factor and react too much in front of a pseudo-insult to his religion. think before speaking, especially you kids who don`t understand a cra*p and give everything for real.

once again: it`s not about what happened inside the italian soccer association, a team fooled many others it doesn`t mean all of them are cheaters. it`s not about what happened inside italy, it`s about what happened in the final, and OMFG how the hell can you say zidane`s the best here and there after seeing him do such cra*p??? i refuse to believe that materazzi was saying those kind offences words to him, everyone always pokes other players, but noone knows what he had told him and i don`t believe he went this much, and it`s way too easy for some crying and weeping french faggots to make a rumor like this go round just because they didn`t win.
zidane`s a faggot, noone who behaves like this is supposed to be allowed to play in important competitions. italy won (yey) stop saying bullpoo just because your favourite didn`t win.

Yeah, Materazzi could have said something insulting but can he speak french? or can Zindane speak itallian?

"There is also a theory that Zidane in his youth had an operation inserting a metalplate in the forhead, replacing a piece of the scull. Materatzzi, on his part, had surgery some years back and got one of those pacemakers installed. Due to the electric atmosphere and the temper, aparently the two devices reacted as oposite magnetic poles, hence flinging Zidane, head first, into Materazzi`s chest.

The French are as always...LOSERS. Euros seem to love to hate Americans UNTIL they need their asses protected or defended or rebuilt or...

let`s hope the next one in 2010 will show more magic and skills than divers, actors and foul plays.

the only factor that made this world cup memorable (and has always been) were the supporters! they brought forth the colors this grey world cup lacked!

Reminds me of Cantona and his karate attack against a supporter of the opposing team. He`s quite popular now, after the initial heat of misbehaving on the field.

It is a pity, but no matter what Materazzi said, Zidane should have just ignored the guy. The red card was deserved, whether or not Materazzi deserves any kind of penalty too remains to be seen.

Everytime I saw Zidane through the game his shirt was being pulled/tugged, he was being tripped or messed with in some sneaky way. The only hting is Zidane doesn`t dive to get the attention of the refs like the Actors on the Italian team. So the ref thought nothing was happening. But what Materazzi allegedly said is uncalled for and if i were Zidane I`d headbutt him too.

Very sad. Italian football is all about cheating and playing it. Look at their teams at home to be demoted due to the fixing game scandal.
Zinedine was, is and will be the greatest European football player ever. He should not have done that, but 1)The verbal offence was, as most agree, very harsh and Zinedine is still a human and 2) Materazzi PWNED. Noone outside Italy will respect the player ever again. Went down like a crash dummy too. First post, a propos.

I think they should have replay added, and anytime there is a foul do a 15 second playback, then RED CARD anyone that was barely touched.

cont.
so in my opinion and many others opinions, Matterazzi should have some kind of fine atleast. and i think the Italian national team should be ashamed of what they did and do not deserve the championship at all. they took Frances key player and captain out of the game and changed the tide of the game completely.italy really doesnt deserve it because they cheated in two or more huge games in the tournement. The two most noted are this game and then also the Australia game where really late in the game ( maybe even OT i forget) one of the italian players dribbles the ball into the australia box and is barely touched by an australian defender. of course, being an italian the guy goes flying through the air screaming and lands on the ground grabbing his leg or something. the brainless FIFA refs call a PK and totti scored and cheaply advances italy forward.

well... all game long Materazzi and the italian players were trying to anger Zidane because when he gets pisssed he really goes off ( as you can see). SO during the play before the altercation Materazzi was reported grabbing zidanes nipple and other parts of his body. i mean wtf? then after that play Materazzi comes up to Zidane and says something along the lines of " You`re an algerian terrorsist ( because Zidane is part Algerian)" then Zidane turns around and says "what?" and mattterazi comes back with " you`re a F*cking dirty algerian terrorist". then of course the head butt ensues and NOBODY notices EXCEPT TV and the crowd. the ref DOES NOT notice the head butt but notices some kind of altercation. After the ref deals with that, one of the linesmen ( assistant refs) calls the ref over ( they showed this on tv). Right after the main ref heard from the assistant he immediatley pulled out the red card. rumor has it that the linemen caught the foul from t

After watching numerous videos of Materazzi I conclude that he is a bastard. Zidane may be too, I don`t know...but one thing I do know is that a lot of Euro team players take a lot of dives. In the eight years I played organized soccer I may have taken 1 or 2 dives..anytime I appeared hurt, I was usually bleeding from the result. My coach taught us to never dive and to jump up right away if we are taken down, I strongly believe this is why we were regional champions 5 times, cause we always had all our players with their heads up. Never anyone going down just to try and draw a foul.

annoying as h*ll to watch some euro games, and yes I love football/soccer, and yes I`m an american who has the soccer package on my Satellite

for guinstar:

i`m 100% italian, i`ve never lived in italy for the only reason that i fly around the world, but that doesn`t mean i`m not italian. i have a family in italy, i have friends in italy, i speak italian, i`m writing from italy right now.. and it`s of no f**king importance that i live in france right now, this is not the point, the point is that even if it is illegal to use video-proof it shouldn`t be. if you`re saying zidane shouldn`t have been kicked out just because no referee saw him (even if it`s impossible, i say they all tried to hide the thing), then you`re as f**king ill as he is. i repeat: if you wanna count the things that are illegal, hitting someone during game is one of these.

it doesn`t matter what has happened inside of the italian soccer association, just because a team was caught cheating it doesn`t mean all the teams are cheaters. italians fought for this cup and deserved it.

This is really funny. Portuguese team was insulted by french newspapers and english newspapers as divers, bad footballers, etc... They eve criticised my country for their economics and other stuff by the games the team made on the field. But you can conclude what you want in this site...
Damn you, French, the team who wins games with a penalty. But Italy really kicked their asses with a clean goal...

Damn you, Zidane. Go home head butting your face (not head) on the wall. France should never have passed the groups stage...

And FIFA elects Zidane as the best player in the World Cup????? it is NOT a carreer prize. It is a cup prize. And a winner can`t do that in the last game. Good example for the kids, not a doubt. A french kid who is starting to play footbal says: "I want to be like Zidane" What will he do when he has his elder brother`s age, who is

Zidane is a great player and it`s really sad he lost his cool and a lot of people`s respect in his last worldcup game.
Oh, and players insult others player all the time, not everyone loses their cool. Zidane is just a poor fool... very good player though.
And does it really matter what Materazzi said? What is this 5th grade?

I hope Jean is suffering, that`s what he said. (Jean was Zidanes first coach, and he died due to cancer before the world cup.)

Sucks to be Zidane. What a lousy game to retire on.
The problem I have with football is that they can play for two hours and then have the game come down to just pks.

For those who love italy, i have to point out that half the team are cheating scumbags. The managers in italy have been fixing matches, you know getting a ref that likes them to make games easier to win.

How about we go have a kick around, and we will se what you do when i call you a son of a terriest whore, you saying you wouldnt flip out?

Italy are a good team, but like portualgal, they are also a team that likes to over-react, cry and generally try to get games to go in their favor. Granted all teams do it, but some teams do it a lot more than others.

Italy won, congratulations.
Zidane is a great player, with a great history.
Materazzi, if he said what the papers say he said, deserves everything he gets, even if that is getting banned from FIFA games!

"Football"? YIKES! Hahahah....Zidane is a pimp that plays a girls sport. As for the head butt it only placed in the guy`s chest. (run the tape slow) The guy that got suckered is a pussy = wimp. The French are as always...LOSERS. Euros seem to love to hate Americans UNTIL they need their asses protected or defended or rebuilt or....

forza italia!!

zidane`s a great jerk, noone still knows what materazzi said to him, and don`t be such fools to believe that the whole italian team was up to make him anger all along, these are just voices made up by french deucebags. zidane deserved the red card. and don`t come saying that the video proof is illegal because it shouldn`t be, it`s a way to clear some things that can be missed sometimes during the game. and by the way even hitting an opponent with the head in the games is illegal.. you french are all deucebags, you`re not kings of the world, and italy prooved it to you once more.
anyway, french are gay, kiss my italian world-champion ass!
KEEP YOUR F**KING EUROPEAN CUP, WE`RE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!!!!!!

Zidane is a retard. dont go insulting my team. it wouldnt have mattered if he got the red card or not. Italy was still gonna win. talk about ending your CAREER in disgrace. Now hes gonna be remembered as the idiot that lost his head during the last game of his career at a World Cup final. anyway no one ACTUAlLY KNOS what Materazzi said. Sure Materazzi talks some crap. but thats still no reason. I love italy and i will always be on their side.

There is also a theory that Zidane in his youth had an operation inserting a metalplate in the forhead, replacing a piece of the scull. Materatzzi, on his part, had surgery some years back and got one of those pacemakers installed. Due to the electric atmosphere and the temper, aparently the two devices reacted as oposite magnetic poles, hence flinging Zidane, head first, into Materazzi`s chest.

So technicly this link should have been posted under the category science.

for me he is still cool. france didnt lose the game because of the red card. i dont think thats a bad way to go. his legacy only grows because of this. otherwise he would have waved and applauded to the audience and stuff. that would have been boring.
now he will be remembered forever.

Go Zidane, Materazzi deserved it. Think about it, Zidanes mum is in hospital, and Materazzi says he hopes his family dies. Materazzi should be thrown out by FIFA, along with a couple of other players that deserve it.

Its also reported that the red card was decided by the 5th offical with TV footage, which is not in the rules of football. Zidane is an amazing player, and deserves the respect that comes with that, from everyone.

If i was in that situation, i would of smacked 7 bells of poo out of Materazzi.

Raceisim is illegal in most countrys, and it should include the football pitch.

Go Zidane!!!!!

P.S. Im not french.

jesus there are reports now about what materazzi said.
this is NOT a great situation.
materazzi has a rep for being a dirty, racist douchebag, zidane has one for losing his temper quickly, but being a relatively mello individual.

Zidane is the son of Algerian immigrants in France, he is also muslim, there were plenty of things materazzi could`ve said....

There was no reason for Zidane to do that, take the revenge out on the goal sheets, not the person. Materazzi, apparently many lip readers are saying said somthing like: You`re mother is a dirty terrorist prostitiute and i hope your family dies, go f*ck yourself...
not cool. apparently the entire italian squad was trying to anger Zidane through out the game...

http://www.informationbuilders.co.uk/ontheball/wcuk.htm cool link showing the amount of dives taken by the countries.... the european countries tend to dive more than the asian/north american/african teams...

zidane is still one of the best there was...

Zidane is one of the greatest players, which was why it was unbelievable to watch him do that. What was worse was that the refs didn`t see it. Yeah they still red carded him but they didn`t see it happen. Man it was a great head butt though!
