Sraphim mia cara .....

No penso in continuare chesta polemica , ma solo parlo , paroles sporcas non includere razismo o simili cosas , Penso quella "Trash Talk " son personales offensas , ma naturalmente chesto é solo mie pensiari .

Anyway the point is , I'm glad this thing seems to be close to a end now , but I do believe and specially wish there was some punishment for Materazzi , not sayin Italy should lost the title or something , ma

l'altro gioco non essere errato , penso

Here it is , from BBC sports :

Interviewer: You know the Italian players well because you played in Italy for five years. Did you have any problem with any of them beforehand?

Zinedine Zidane: Not at all. You always have friction with certain players...that is the game, it has always been like that. But I never had any clashes with anyone.

Interviewer: Nor Materazzi?

Zinedine Zidane: No, never. There was nothing beforehand and nothing in the match until he started pulling my jersey.

He grabbed my shirt and I told him to stop. I told him if he wanted I'd swap it with him at the end of the match.

That is when he said some very hard words, which were harder than gestures. He repeated them several times. It all happened very quickly and he spoke about things which hurt me deep down.

Interviewer: Everyone wants to know exactly what he said...

Zinedine Zidane: They were very serious things, very personal things.

Interviewer: About your mother and your sister?

Zinedine Zidane: Yes. They were very hard words. You hear them once and you try to move away.

But then you hear them twice, and then a third time... I am a man and some words are harder to hear than actions. I would rather have taken a blow to the face than hear that.

Interviewer: He said these things about your mother and sister two or three times?

Zinedine Zidane: Yes. I reacted and of course it is not a gesture you should do. I must say that strongly.

It was seen by two or three billion people watching on television and millions and millions of children.

It was an inexcusable gesture and to them, and the people in education whose job it is to show children what they should and shouldn't do, I want to apologise.

Interviewer: You apologise to them but do you really regret having done it?

Zinedine Zidane: I can't regret it because if I do it would be like admitting that he was right to say all that. And above all, it was not right.

We always talk about the reaction, and inevitably it must be punished. But if there is no provocation, there is no reaction.

First of all you have to say there is provocation, and the guilty one is the one who does the provoking. The response is to always punish the reaction, but if I react, something has happened.

Do you imagine that in a World Cup final like that, with just 10 minutes to go to the end of my career, I am going to do something like that because it gives me pleasure?

Interviewer: No of course not. But at the moment you exploded...

Zinedine Zidane: There was provocation, and it was very serious, that is all. My action was inexcusable but you have to punish the real culprit, and the real culprit is the one who provoked it. Voila.

Hahahaha!!!



Oops.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you MissMaCo and J_NP (btw. I am shy) for posting what Zidane had to say.

BonoManiac, excellent post.
Wish I could have written it myself.
'Cause it describes precisely how I've been looking at the situation.

Am I the only one thinking that (as a consequence of this incident) it could very well be possible that in the future players will be wearing miniscule, tiny microphones somewhere on (or perhaps even in) their body?

Probably a bit too James Bond, secret agencies and spy-world, right?

he should be punished if he really made some racist comments, I said that from the very first moment.
I was just reading a funny article on the Gazzetta website: there's this french lawyer who, lol, wants a rematch of the final because, according to him (but non to the FIFA...) the ref didn't see Zidane headbutting Materazzi... LOL.

oh and btw... IMO, Gallas made some racist statements about Italians as a country, and I feel offended by his words. should I go and headbutt him? I heard that's how it works now

"Italians always act like this," he told AFP. "It is a shame to say that, but when they feel they are being dominated they try to provoke you.

"Yes, they are cheaters, but we can't stop that. Fifa and the referees only see the second act, they never look at why there is an incident.

"I accept when the adversary wins with honour, but that is not the case. We know Zizou, he doesn't react like that, people can't react like that, but he has been insulted.

"I think it was very grave. When you play against people like that you want to kick their a$$. It is cheating, but they are Italians."


....
poor him. I guess he's just a sore loser
nothing new though... pizza-eaters, cheaters, parassites... we've heard it all already

Mazeratty deserved that headbutt.....and i believe a rematch fo the final is in order.........i believe players need microphones.....i believe they need video refs.........i believe they need.........refs!

And i don't know what the big deal is about this headbutt.....it's not like Zidane actually hurt him...The italian team are pack of softy's.........JC..........i reckon my nan could have hit harder than that!
