This is an article about what provoked Zidane to headbutt the guy - and this is what he allegedly said, "I prefer the whore that is your sister".
I have a few thoughts about this - first, and this is one I have told anyone who will listen, is that Zidane's headbutt cost his team the World Cup. There are a few reasons behind this, one is that Zidane was a leader of that team, and had to be a source of inspiration when he was playing. Additionally, in the PK shootout, the kicker who missed was the 4th shooter, who is traditionally the worst shooter of the 5 (1st shooter: 2nd best, 2nd shooter: 4th best, 3rd shooter: 3rd best, 4th shooter: 5th best, 5th shooter: best). This means, that if Zidane was still in the game, he almost would have certainly taken the PK instead of this guy (because if he took them during the game in regulation - he had to be one of the best PK takers on the team). I know this is a lot of speculation, and who knows if I'm right - but hey - isn't that true of most sports analysis?
When I first saw the headbutt, I had guessed that Materazzi had said something about Zidane's mother or wife (is he married? I don't know), but sister is close up there (
He is still a great player, and I'm sure he regrets this more than anyone.
This is my first post guys - and this blog will be based on my thoughts and reactions to various news as time goes on, sometimes sports, sometimes technology, not as much politics, sometimes science.
