LOL, Ultrabeat. You win page 78.
Materazzi is the Robbie Savage of Seri A. But still no matter what he said Zidane should have done the professional thing and ignored it.
Bah screw this im going to go and restart my Masterleage team as Lazio in WE10.
so im the only one who doesnt frown upon what zidane did?
He'd really be Robbie Savage if the ref headbutted him. Hahaha.
I think he made the right desicion to knock him in the chest.
Way to go Zidane
I'm sure Fifa will change the rules so that headbutting another player in the chest will just constitute a foul and not a red card.
Edit: It wasn't the correct thing to do, but I couldn't think of a player who deserves a headbutt in the chest more than Marco Matteratzi.
That's completely true.
Rugby, football, karate and even cricket I've given and recieved trash talking. There is a line, and perhaps Matteratzi crossed it, but it would have to be something really harsh to warrant a response.
Zidane is a professional sportsman. He's been around a few years now and will know what goes on. He knows opponents will try to unsettle him and try and put him off his game with trash talk. Every opponent will try that. He's probably sone it himself. Zidane should know not to react like that. He shouldn't react at all, apart from to play better.
Zidane has been sent off 14 times in his career. He got a 2 match ban for head butting an opponent in the champions league. He stamped on a Saudi player's head in a previous world cup. So he has previous.
It's a sad way to end his career, but he should not have acted in that fashion.
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me.
I'd still like to know why he head butted him in the chest. Was he hoping for just a yellow?
should of jumped up and down on materazzis head after flooring him.
You are a terrible poster please stop posting
Imaturity, it's everywhere.
That is never, EVER going to happen at all.
According to the FIFA.
Any offensive contact towards a player, with the mere intention of injuring or hurting the player, is sanctioned with a red card. Even if Zidane would have given a slap in Materazzi's face...he would/should have been sent off anyway.
I was being sarcastic dude. I mean can you imagine fifa changing the rules to say that violent conduct is ok?
My bad...maybe you were too sarcastic
Yeah I know..when I read yours I was like..whaaat???
Edit: sorry about the double post...

Raymond Domenech might have made himself look silly with the claim that Marco Materazzi "put on a show" after Zinedine Zidane headbutted him, but there's no doubt that the Italian must have said something. But what? What would wind up a man who's won everything in football?
Here are F365's (very brief - we're pressed for time) thoughts...
* "Bruno Cheyrou is the new you. And he's better."
* "You play like you're English."
* "See all these names tattooed on my arms - this is your mother, this is your sister, and this is your wife."
* "You might have been a Real Madrid legend, but you never played at the School of Science with Scott Gemmill."
"Cor, you sweat more than your wife does!"
"Your daughter's having Wayne Rooney's lovechild."
"I've got hair growth formula on my shirt..."
"I don't care what FIFA says, Jermaine Jenas is better than you."
"I bet you a fiver you can't headbutt me in the chest."
"I bet I can do a better Rhino impression than you."
"Hey Zizou, Boumsoung is warming up...I think that's your lot for tonight."
"My name's worth more than yours in Scrabble."
"Show us your butt."
"Are you Jenas in disguise?"
"You wouldn't have cut it at Everton, either."
"We in Italy still think your wife wears the trousers..."
Lol, i like the one about playing like he's English
I've heard a number of theories. I initially heard that it was racial abuse directed at his immigrant roots, but the BBC News at 10pm has proabably the best theory/answer of all so far. For the report they got an Italian lip-reader to translate what Materazzi said.
The BBC claim that as Zidane walked off Materazzi said 'I wish Death to you and your family'. This was particularly insensitive as the BBC claimed that Zidane's mother was ill with cancer. Finally, just before Zidane stopped and turned around to floor the Itallian, Materazzi mouthed 'Go **** yourself!'.
I was initially shocked by Zidane's actions, but after thought and looking at the video footage, I think that the attack was not without provocation. Zidane's actions were unsportsman-like, but so where Materazzi's.
You know lets try not to dwell on this too much, i'd rather try to remember Zidane for all the good things he did than the bad. So i'm going to post this video again and hope that Felipe doesn't get mad at me.
You are such a party pooper Brett.
TRI YOU DONT EVEN LIKE FOOTBALL YOU BUTTE
Also i'm making you an honorary Chelsea supporter and now you have to watch Chelsea Play every week when the premiership starts. I mean you could go to Matts house and watch with him.
Teah too right. Maybe up the emphasis on cricket. It is THE sledging sport, infact it's a huge tactic, especially in Australia. (Within reason, obviously). Typical of cricket in Australia, "spill his milk" even as far as "make his box a swimming pool" are common. Phsychology is becoming such a big part of sport these days.
Zidane is good (very!), but he didn't help his aspiration for a 'godlike' retirement. Sadly the last thing we're left with is that red card.
I like those. Mine are usually a little less creative, I'll have to try those some time.
I just cant stand cheaters, and dirty players, and after seeing that video of materrazi I have to say I would like to do aot more to him than headbutt to the chest. But maybe its because im from the UK. Most other countries seem to not care that theyre team is nothing better than back stabbing cheats
Here's the best vid I've found. Materazzi definitely said something:
BTW, I laughed SO loud and it's like 6:33am.
I've heard that apparently Materazzi suggested to Zidane that he played for Juventus next season....
There were some great ones in the Guardian this morning.
"Zidane, I have some steak lodged in my throat, help me!"
"You cannot win Zidane. If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine"
Just shup up, you are making a fool of yourself.
