View Full Version : Zidane headbutt outrage: new video evidence

Pity if you will poor old Zinadine Zidane: sent off during the World Cup final for a serious infraction of FIFA's "no headbutting Italians" rule and now reduced to the status of French national hero with enough cash in the bank to enjoy a lifetime of truffles, stuffed songbirds and fine vintage champagne.

Indeed, while the rest of the world was struggling to contain its outrage at Zidane's unsportsmanlike use of the Glasgow handshake, Jacques Chirac counterattacked with: "I would like to express all the respect that I have for a man who represents at the same time all the most beautiful values of sport, the greatest human qualities one can imagine, and who has honoured French sport and, simply, France."

Well, therein lies the rub, mon ami. How you view the whole thing depends largely on your national perspective, as nicely demonstrated by a viral email we received this morning:

Terrific. For the record, we at Vulture Central believe that - contrary to current wisdom - the Materazzi-felling incident was provoked not by references to Zidane's mother and his Algerian ancestry, but rather the suggestion that Italian wine may be of equal, or superior, quality to its French equivalent.

In the circumstances, Zidane's reaction as the embodiment of France was understandable. Let's face it, the Bastille was stormed for less

Hilarious!

Random thought, not related to this incident:

What I find funny about the World Cup (as a casual observer) is how a lot of the players are such drama queens, obviously to influence the referees. They get taken down and they're on the ground writhing in agony and have to be carried off on a stretcher... not a minute or two later they're back on the field running around like nothing happened! :D

I' m sure many football players have already sent flowers to Zidane for what he did. Matteracci is no saint, quite on the contrary. :jmp:

Zidane is a Legend no matter what!

I'm sure it was related to wine,but I don't what's the problem: of course Portuguese wine is superior,so there's no reason for them to fight :D!

Zidane is a world class player, but now he is the worlds worst head butter!

I love those videos though, the Lampost one is brilliant.

I find more funny that he headbutted materazzi's chest and not head. :D

Well he couldn't headbutt Materazzi's head because he couldn't reach it; Materazzi is about a head taller than Zizou :p

hmmm... I wonder what ticked Zizou off for him to do something like...the convo was probably something like this:

Materazzi:you're balding!!
Zidane: *headbutt*
