Zidane headbutt: Beautiful, but sad

Ah, the World Cup is over. I’m a bit sad by this, but I’m glad that I saw one of the greatest moments in sport when Zidane put the Italian on the floor with a well placed headbutt. I later found out why Zidane did what he did:

Zidane whilst Materazzi is holding him:ZZ: "Ordinanza de tirare il costume!!" (stop pulling on my shirt!!)

MM": "Taciti, enculo, hai solamente cio che merite..." (shut up f*cker, you only get what you deserve)

ZZ: "si e cio..." (yes, sure...)

While Zidane starts to move away, Materazzi goes:

MM: "meritate tutti cio, voi gli enculato di musulmani, sporchi terroristici" (all of you deserve that, f*cking Muslims, terrorist b*stards)

Zidane proceeds to headbutt him.

The truth is that I was cheering for Italy until I saw this happen. It was one of the most amazing moments in sport history and frankly, if this is true, I’m glad Zidane did what he did.

France truly had no chance to begin with because of the curse that I placed on Argentina prior to the World Cup. That’s right. I, El Guapo, am responsible for Argentina’s early departure.

What does France have to do with Argentina? Well, the French player David Trezeguet is of Argentine descent. See, he is the son of Jorge Trezeguet, an Argentine. I actually like his play in Europe, but his blood betrayed him. I will think about removing the El Guapo curse for the next World Cup, but frankly, that is many years away and Argentina will likely do something to bother me by then. Let us see.

Anyway, I began to cheer for France the moment Zidane did this. Now, I am glad that I started cheering for them. If I had known Trezeguet was of Argentine descent, I would have temporarily removed the curse. For this, I apologize. It is my fault. Zidane, France, Trezeguet, I am sorry. Lo siento.

If what was said was true, I will unfortunately be forced to place a curse on Italy. You see, the only intolerance I stand for is intolerance against Argentineans. Leave one’s religion alone. A man’s relationship with God is no one’s business but his own.

Mucho Amor,

El Guapo

Can you tell me where you go this report? I haven't found it, although Le Figaro did say something about racism.

Italy and Spain have been known for that. Throwing bananas at African players and all that... can you IMAGINE if that ever happened here?

That's a great posting, El Guapo. I'm glad I read it. I agree with you, there is no excuse for religious discrimination, especially in sport. Although Zidane had to walk away from the field because of that, I'm sure that none his fans will walk away from him.
By they way... isn't cursing Argentinian players can be considered as a discrimination? ;-P

First of all the referee was an Argentine, so much of the game is his fault. Second of all, I don't see how countering an insult (of any kind) with a cheap shot is considered honorable. If Zidane wanted to fight for his cause, so be it, but he should have done it face to face like a man. Thirdly, isn't that what Islamic terrorists do? Zidane may have earned some misplaced respect, but he certainly didn't defend his cause. After that, France deserved to lose.

If one's personal honor is greater than that of the team, there would be anarchy. Zidane is a puss, and if he can't take a bit of ribbing, he deserves a red card shoved up his culo.

The Italian was smart, and knowing Zidane's weakness, took Zidane out of the game.

Someone so weak mentally shouldn't be admired, nor should he lead a team to such a championship.

We all have our breaking points. I don't blame Mr. Zidane.

I will have to agree with some of the previous posters about Zidane's cowardly act. First of all, racism has no place in any sport or life for that matter. FIFA should punish the Italian player for his comments. No tolerance will be the only way that the sport can rid itself of this ugly monster. However, this is not an isolated incident Zidane has been sent off 3 times for dirty play including one where he headbutted another player (Sound familiar) and in 98 World Cup he stepped on a Saudi Arabia player and was promptly suspended. Yet, FIFA gave him a free pass because he was the greatest player in the world. In my opinion, that is debateable because I still feel Ronaldo is the greatest player of this era.

Unlike El Guapo, I started cheering for Italy after it happened even though I considered it cheering for the less of 2 evils because Italy knocked out the US.

Nothing honorable came from this incident and as far as I am concerned Zidane will go down as one of the most dirty players ever instead of one of the greatest and that is sad.

Muchas gracias, El Guapo. Whether or not that is what the Italian player said, I know in my heart that Zidane had to have been sorely pressed to behave that way. The Italians cheated, or skirted that cheating boundary very closely, and dramatized wildly in every game they played throughout the series. The French behaved comradely and kindly, with each other and with their opponents. I rooted all the way for the French, not only because I briefly attended the Sorbonne, but because I know that the multicultural team's success really drives the French nationalist extremists crazy.

Zidane consistently behaved like a gentleman and a role model. For him to behave differently in the last five minutes not just of the series or the match but of his soccer career he must have been seriously provoked.

I think I cross-posted with bigantone888. Sorry, I have not until now been aware of prior incidents of Zidane behaving badly. I still think that in the series he has been behaving with admirable good manners and leadership, and that the Italians played dirty all the way through.

I'm sorry.
All of you who think Zidane is a coward for reacting against a racist comment, are complete fools.

You who say, the Italisn knew exactly how to push Zidane's button are the weak-minded and sleezy one. You do not, under any circumstance rely on such base comments to "win" or destroy your opponent's will.

I'm truly angered at these pathetic points of view, and like Zidane, I wish I could headbutt you back into the racist womb from whence you came. You are without a doubt earth's worst scum. Period.

It is idiotic to think that because someone taunts any aspect of your identity, no matter how highly regarded, that those words gives you the right to torpedo an opportunity for an entire team to win a world championship.

Putting self, below that of team, is the first principle of team in the first place.

Also, what happened to "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me." If people have such low self-esteem, that they can't bear some ribbing by anyone, racist or not, then that low-self-esteem-having-loser, deserves to lose. In fact, Zidane's actions show he is a loser, and thus, it is just that he lost.

patience and moderation are virtues, el guapo... must remember that.

Almost as satisfying as when Boston Celtics center Robert Parrish sucker-punched the Detroit Pistons' Bill Laimbeer in the NBA playoffs.

When judging Zidane's actions, keep in mind the man was in the last minutes of overtime of the final game of his professional career, and had been doing hard physical exercise for the past two hours. He was mentally and physically exhausted - hardly in a state to ponder the possible outcomes of his actions. He simply reacted - and good for him. I don't relish violence, but letting racism slide is far, far worse. Even supposedly used as a strategic tool, it's nevertheless a weapon of hate.

Materazzi has admitted that he insulted Zidane, but denied making a comment about Zidane's religion or calling Zidane a terrorist. And why has no one asked what language Materazzi used to insult Zidane?

Language difficulties being what they are, insults on an international pitch are often on the level of "your mother..." and such. So I'm less inclined to give even a tired, frustrated Zidane a pass than others are.

And I have a hard time seeing El Guapo turn against Italy, that most Latin of all Latin countries.

The Italian team also has an Argentino Mauro Camoranesi, the biggest pig of the Italian team, was born in Argentina. Check it out for yourself.
