    I hope it will be used more often in less important games as well.
    Since when are video replays allowed to be used DURING the game. This inceident should have (and will be) dealth with by FIFA post match.

    If they are allowed to be used, why weren't they used during the Australian matchs when the Italian took a blatant dive (worthy of an Oscar) or when the Croation handballed in the penalty are for the second time in the match, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc....

    Ok, well, still could have been a racist remark, or could have been a personal remark about the end of his career, or whatever, but something was most probably said, and from his reaction it must have been bad, although, the only person that would have heard it would be Zidane, whereas everyone can see the head butt. Its just a shame that everyone will now think less of him due to one thing, I know i dont, if anything standing up for yourself should be a gd thing no? (Even if there are other ways to do so)

    FIFA will never listen, Rugby have it sorted, how long does it take to look at the reply, about 20 seconds and you make the right decision and a team wins fairly. As i said earlier, FIFA have been shocking this world cup and need to get their act together or get lost!

    His biography would have sold well anyway, imagine how well it will sell now - what a last chapter, couldn't be any more thrilling unless France won the cup.

    You must be smoking something! Everyone saw Zidane's "golden head", but did anyone hear what Materazzi might have said?

    What investigation? It's Zidane's workd against Materazzi's. I don't care if Materazzi said "hi" to Zidane's mother and grandmother, let's add in his sister too. What Zidane did was the most bone "headed" thing he ever did, but then, there is definately a history of bone headedness. However, the one crowns them all.

    Call me cynical but look at it this way - the clip will be replayed in many years to come.

    Not a spectacular or grand way of retiring, but a memorable one. I mean, if nothing happened and France (hypothetically) won the cup, would people play the videos of them winning? Never saw any video of either side winning the cup.... maradonna's crap however is shown without fail everytime the world cup comes....

    Infamy yes, ironic even more so, but at least he'll be remembered.

    And it makes for great story telling. People are so used to fairy tale happy endings that they've lost their appeal. Imagine if the made a movie of his life story....the drama...the tragic ending to an illustrious career.

    He may yet still be the winner!

    Maybe, but some people cannot just shrug off remarks as easily as say, you can. You do not know what Materazzi said, none of us do, so I therefore think we should not through away our view of this outstanding player over a 'silly' headbutt.

    Why should they stay? They have done very little right this world cup. Most of the ref's have been appauling for international football and an event as big as the world cup, sure they can make mistakes, but not that many. Also FIFA's rules about the TV replay are shocking, why have an official watching the screen if they are not allowed to use it?

    I thought it was Buffon who complained to the assistant ref. that Zidane headbutted Materazzi cos the ref did not see the incident.

    I was half asleep when that happens but I'm sure I heard the commentator said something like that.

    Correct it was Buffon who came running and also the Italian coach. THey both did the right thing, but as I said earlier the officals can only go by what they saw on the pitch, they should not have been influenced by the video replay, regardless of how how horrendous the incident was.

    I wouldnt mind giving it a try

    Basically, restructure the whole of FIFA or get rid of the people making the key decisions and bring new people in would be my guess. Or start a new company/organisation to take over? Or just make them get their act together, either way, i dont mind

    i certainly believe the ref did the right thing. No matter how players from the opp team provoke you, headbutting someone in the chest is surely a red card offence... If i remember correctly (cos a bit sleepy at that moment) when the italians are complaining to the ref, i think i saw Zidanee already took off his captain arm band...he himself know it will be a red card...

    What the hell lah Zidane!!! Quite dissapointed to him loh~~~. No matter what, he is a captain and going to retire, why not leave a good memory to all his fans?! A gentleman image of him spoilt right after his heading kung fu learned from the China Shao Ling Si.

    it's no doubt that it's a red card offence.

    i think the argument here is whether any of the official(s) actually saw the event, or did they rely on the recording, and if they did, is that allowed. apparently it's not.

    well, instead of talking so much here, anyone got links to articles regarding this? i'm sure this is the debated topic around the world now?

    Oh my, it was almost too funny. Have been an admirer of ZZ for a long time, but this is not the first time he's been sent off in a World Cup, and no matter what the provocation, he really should not have reacted that way.

    All the best ZZ, thanks for the memories, the many good ones and the few bad ones.
