I agree with you Ras Heru. On the day that the man finds out that his mother is seriously ill, you rant on and on insulting his mother and sister, wishing them a horrible death and such, I probably would've stomped him after the head-butt. I would've tried to restrain myself and stomped him after we had won the match and the handshaking was about to begin, but I doubt Zidane thought the act through. Of all the FIFA member federations, Italy had the most instance s of mass racism, registering at 30. I see another proposition than that in the article, how about if the Italian federation was to personally punish Matarazzi, as well as make a statement in support of Zidane, not supporting the strike, but simply stating that he was provoked and that racial statements have no accepted place in the beautiful game. That's more realistic than them giving up the trophy (even though France did dominate the play in the game, even after losing Zidane, but I'm a french team fan, so I guess that makes me biased).
Love And Peace,
