I don't watch allot of soccer or know to much about it. But I know that, the head but incident was unfortunate, and the only thing I will remember zidane for is that Head but. and beckham for that great free kick that he scored on. At lease Zidane won the Golden Ball hopfully people will remember him for that.
 

Isabella

I will remember Zidane for how great a player he was. If MaterazzI said something truly offensive to Zidane, and maybe it was something really that hurt him, then no wonder Zidane responded this way. Yes, I was shocked at what Zidane did because he walked off the field when they most needed him, but maybe the Italian player deserved what he got for his sharp mouth. Maybe he wanted to provoke Zidane on purpose, but he knew he couldn't do that by force, so he used words. Provoke him on purpose so that Zidane would get a red card and this way it would be easier for Italians to win. Zidane never misses penalty kicks. Think about it: it was the run for the world's championship. These players would do ANYTHING to win, including provoking the opponent team's best players into getting a red card. And Italian players NO DOUBT were aware of how good Zidane is. Could it then be a "coincidence" that MaterazzI talked dirty to Zidane, who happens to be one of the world's best players? .... I highly doubt it and I am sure it was well-meant and on purpose. Winning World Cup by sending the opponent team's best player off the field by provoking him ... is not really a fair victory, if it is a victory at all.

J-Man, I agree, Australian team was quite good. I saw the game Italy vs. Australia. I thought Australia played much better than Italy then, and they deserved to win that match. One of the Italian players fell on the ground pretending that he was "terribly hurt" on purpose (again) to get a penalty kick. It was 0 : 0 all the game, and a "last-minute" "foul" by Australia was on purpose, just like getting rid of Zidane was. Too many "coincidences" with the Italian team. I don't think they play fair AT ALL! And that makes their victory undeserved after all. They lack ethics and professionalism. An ethical team will never pretend they're hurt when in fact they're not, they'll never cut the legs of an opponent on purpose, and they'll never get rid of opponents on purpose so that the victory is easier - all of which Italy unfortunately did during this Wolrd Cup.

P.S. Before the games got to quarterfinals and semifinals, I thought the most likely teams to win were Brazil, Portugal, Germany, and Argentina. Instead, only Germany went as far as to get a 3rd place, and Brazil didn't even qualify for semifinals. I would have never predicted that France and Italy would be the finalists.
 

Joe G

I wonder news will say what really was seed or done to make Zidane upset.
 

Isabella

Unless the French or Italian players will reveal the information to the media ... we may never know what MaterazzI said to Zidane. Of course, I hope we'll be able to find out.
 

Isabella

Hmm ... but Zidane should really NOT have acted this way ... no matter how much they provoked him. If he hadn't done that, the French would have won. I don't know what to think anymore. Without Zidane, Henry, and Ribery during the penalty kicks ... France didn't have much to hope for. I am 99% sure if these 3 players were allowed to kick, France would have won. But Italy won ... and well, congratulations to them in that case. Not everyone can win, so there we go.
 

Gwenz

I saI dthe same about Zidane, Henry, and Ribery. If they would have taken a penalty kick they would have won. I hope we can find out what was said. I read in the paper today that some of Zidane's team mates said that Zidane will reveal what was said but only when he has calmed down. But when will that be? : It could be ages. We may never find out. :-\

Joe G

I herd today that the Italian player called Zidane a terrorist. but does still does not justify the head but.
 

Isabella

Joe, I agree. No matter how much verbally abused Zidane was by the Italian players, he should have not behaved this way. I know he was angry and upset, but before he hit Materazzi, he should have paused and thought to himself "This is the final game of World Cup ... let me just ignore the remarks and last to the end." He should have simply ignored what MaterazzI said and play on. But because of what he did he jeopardized the chance for victory. It's sad what he did. But he is a good player nevertheless. And if he REALLY wanted to hit MaterazzI so much, he should have waited until the game is over! LOL
 

Joe G

All ready the jokes have started funny game .
 

Isabella

LOL Joe !!! ;D ;D ;D Hilarious game, haha ! Zidane should see that game, lol.
 

Gwenz

;D ;D ;D
 

Joe G

I think if both player's saw this game they would laugh, you just have to it is so funny.
 

Joe G

Just heard that zidane could be stripped of his best player award.
 

Gwenz

Where did you hear that? I wonder if it's true...

Gwenz
 

Gwenz

That's quite interesting. Thanks Joe.

Gwenz
 

Joe G

I think by the weekend they should have a decision. If they do dot take it away from him by then safe to say they will not.
 

Joe G

Just herd final decision to be maid by FIFA on July 20. Both Players to be disciplined.
 

Gwenz

I think both players should be disciplined. MaterazzI started it all if he did say something, but then it's zidane we saw headbtting him. I don't think it is fair that nothing was said to MaterazzI during the match.

Gwenz
 

Joe G

Your are Right on that. I think FIFA is thinking the same thing. Both Should be Discipled.
 

Isabella

I think so too. But I wouldn't want them to strip Zidane of his award :-\
 

Gwenz

No me neither. That would be so unfair. They can't just take it off him after one insident. It all depends on the other matches too.

Gwenz
 

Isabella

It's not exactly nice, nor is it appropriate, to first give someone and award ... and then to take it away. I mean, how does that make one feel?
 

Joe G

Decision maid today by FIFA. Zinedine Zidane suspended 3 matches and fined 7500 swiss francs.
MaterazzI suspended 2 games and fined 5000 swiss francs. Zidane was not striped of Golden Ball.
 

Gwenz

I think that's quite fair. I didn't think he'd loose the Golden Ball, that would just have been unfair.

Gwenz
 

Joe G

I Think both players got off Lucky, they should have gotten a couple more games each.
 

Gwenz

Yes, but hasn't Zidane retired? How can he be suspended from 3 maches if he isn't playing any more ? ???

Gwenz
 

Joe G

I don't now does not make sense, maybe he was going to retire at the end of the year ??.
 

Joe G

Found out, since Zidane has retired he must do 3 days comunity service with children.
 

Gwenz

O right. That sounds fare.

Gwenz
 

Joe G

It does not sound fair, but what does 7500 Swiss franks work to. In US dollar, or Euro dollar
 

Jason

Nothing really I mean the guy has been playing top football in several of the bet leagues including Italian and Spanish playing for massive clubs earning 200 000 dollars a week, not including the millions in sponsors from nike etc. That would really be pocket money for the day.

Got to admit it was a great headbutt such power, and for once it didnt take any acting for an Italian to fall over!
 

Joe G

that's true you can't give the Italian player any suspension for diving on that one.
 

Joe G

New world cup game funny.
 

Gwenz

I just get a black screen when I click on that link. ??? :-\

Gwenz
 

Joe G

click on link it will go black and load up the a picture of Italian goalie should appear.
