i know im posting alot on this subject lol it just kinda intrigues me why someone would do somthing like this i have found some quotes tho
Players blamed Materazzi for making sure that Zidane ended his sterling career under a cloud.
"When I see this, I want to smash his face," France defender William Gallas said
"He can leave with his head held high. The other one (Materazzi), even if he has won the cup, cannot. Because there is more to life than soccer," he said (trezequet)
that quote kind of helps this theory
However, I thought about this...If it were indeed racist, maybe he thought that the moment was much bigger than football. Maybe he was in complete control of his temper, and said screw it, i'm not letting him get away with a racist comment thinking hes right. He seemed pretty calm about the whole situation when you think about it. He walked away from the player at first it wasn't just a pure insinctive angry reaction...then turned and walked slowly back towards him...headbutted him, and slowly backed away. and when the ref showed him a red, he was obviously not happy about it but he put his arm around the ref and attempted to explain the situation....all rather calmly considering he just got a red card in the worse possible fashion..and it was the world cup final..and his last game. Hopefully we will find out the true story soon enough. So much goes on on the pitch that we dont know about it. We only get to see and hear so much. Our view of things looks so much different from our positions on our couches and lounge chairs. Up close and personal the story might be completely different than what we make it out to be. we'll see.
