    Agreed. It should be interesting to see if we ever find out what exactly was said. I've heard rumours about some of the extremely nasty and racist things that Materazzi might have said.

    Radio 5 (a BBC news and sport station) and various papers here have reported that Materazzi allegedly called Zidane "the son of a terrorist wh*re". Radio 5 also report that Zidane allegedly started it by referring to Materazzi's dead mother. Make of all that what you will.

    anyway Zidane was choosen like first player in this WC.

    at 2nd and 3rd position two italians (Cannavaro and Pirlo)

    anyway Zizou has been one of the best players i ever remember and with Platini the best FR one

    Buffon i think will go now to play in Milan and also Zambrotta should leave (Uk ?)

    yesterday evening was amazing in Rome...you should hv seen...

    Well they're just names and words. He's still stupid for falling for the attempt to make him lose his cool.

    That Italian player sounds full of crap.

    He claims 'I'm not cultured, I don't even know what an Islamic Terrorist is.'

    I call BS. He probably said something way out of line.

    That's too bad but they're big boys, a few mean words shouldn't cause someone to nut up and get a red card.

    Zidane's poster is on my wall in my office and will remain there. He has brought honor to the game. He still should be an inspiration for all kidswho strive to be the best they can be. All people have regrettable instances in their life...he should not be defined by this.

    I think the public will define him by this but most soccer fans will not...soccer fans realize that soccer is such an intense game and things happen at times...sometimes the wrong time.

    He'll remain on my wall with Ronaldo and Baggio and other smaller posters...where he belongs.

    I have to disagree. I think there's a line between insulting someone and attacking their heritage, values, and/or ethnic background.

    Right.

    Remember, this is soccer, where I heard the hooligans make monkey sounds at the Black players.

    Completely classless, some of them.
