Seems like he's trying to downplay what really happened. Zidane apologized for doing it (esp for the kids who saw it), but does not regret it, which I think some people thought he would. France is supporting Zidane, and I think most people are in general on this one.
Give me a break...of course France is supporting Zidane and Italy is supporting Materazzi....ever play any sports my friends?? Players often trade crude barbs about sisters and mothers...nothing to get upset about...the fact that this is getting so much air time is ludicrous....the bored press should give it an effing rest....Zidane overreacted as he has in the past - of course I would not have given him a red card, just a warning...let them duke it out later off the field like men....instead of wussies....
