The incident in the WC final has caused Zidane to be fined 3,000 and Materazzi 2,000.

More here: news.bbc.co.uk/sport...

Is this supposed to act as a deterant? Domestic football fines are also laughable.

Get tough on violence on ther field, simulation and cheating - don't bother handing out fines that have no impact on the player.

Its like getting fines 1.50 for double parking.

At least Matterazi got a fine as well cos what he said was proably really bad.

They should have been sent off.

Sod the pathetic fines.
How can they justify banning Materazzi for 2 matches?
What have they actually banned him for?
There is no actual evidence of what he said so are we now going to have a situation where every person that is sent off for violent conduct is going to claim that the person they hit insulted their mother

Couple of hours work for them. Punishing Metarazzi has opened a can of worms, sledging has been so prevelant in football for decades.

I remember Rivaldo getting banned 5 grand for that disgraceful dive against Turkey, where the ball hit his shins and he fell to the ground clutching his face. He probably reached into his back pocket and paid them there and then. The money he was on at Barca, he probably made 5 grand for taking the morning off and lying in bed!

I said it then and Ill say it now - the way to hurt a footballer is to not let them play.

It's not a case of punishment, fifa just have to be seen to do something. Mr Blatter follows theis rule assiduously, doing and saying things for very little reason, and making very little sense in the process.

Working for Fifa? So he gets to make Michel Platini's coffee...


How can they ban Materazzi? He'll surely appeal and get that overturned, all he has to do is deny he said anything terrible.

This could cause all sorts of problems between rival players...

"My mother's a what?!"

"What?! I didn't say anything."

"Ha, ha. That's a 2000 fine."

"You b*$***d!"

"Ha, ha. That's 4000!"

Fines won't do it--the only way to stop it (if FIFA is serious) is to take away Italy's trophy. If that means none awarded, so be it.

Ignoring the miniscule amount of the fines for a moment. If I was Materazzi I would be fuming that I had even been called before this kangaroo court.

This is a blatant attempt to steer the spotlight away from the most public example of ABH ever witnessed by a worldwide audience committed by one of the sports most illustrious figures. Obviously FIFA are trying to make Materazzi the scapegoat to try and preserve Zidanes imagine. i.e the big nasty italian with the tatoos called the shy French genius a nasty name - shame on him.

The fact that the French nutter tried to cave the italian's chest in seems to being over looked.

As for the punishment you can't ban someone who has retired or if you do you ban him forever. Zidane no doubt got paid a fair wedge from the French FA for appearing and guiding them to the final so that's your starting point then treble it.

As for Materazzi he shouldn't even be involved with this farce.

You hit the nail on the head there asking how they can ban materazzi.

The way i see it is just cos its zidane they have to make a big deal out of him being provoked cos the nasty man said nasty words to him.aaah bless his little cottons...

It is pathetic.The message it sends out is that making a disparaging remark to an opponent is only slightly better than headbutting someone.It is not.What Zidane did was assault and i dont care how good a footballer he was he has made himself look like a spoilt child who cannot even accept full responsibility for what he has done.The footballing authorities have made themselves look like total mugs who will pander to the egos of the biggest names.Everyone loses on this one...

Zidanes ban? laugh im sure he's really cut up about that.

Though he agreed to do community service with kids instead, he doesnt HAVE to do that, he could just walk away. He's setting an example by taking a punishment for what he did. A class act.

We dont know what Maeterttzi said exactly, FIFA have a better idea, so we cant judge Materattzis punishment in my opinion

what do you expect from Blatter and his cronies.

The man who personally chose the corrupt Ecuadorian ref for the Italy-Corea game in 2002.

The man who was consoling his buddy Zidane in the locker room when he should have been presenting the world cup to the champions.

The Matrix should take FIFA to the European Court of Justice.

Italy should pull out of FIFA in protest.

I am gonna riot in the streets during my mid-morning break!!!

Can only assume that Materazzi was found guilty of something his must of said to Zidine to recieve that fine, and a two match ban.

I would love to have known what was said, seems however I'll just have to wait for the book to come out.

Message 19 - posted by drogsbreath (U2137624) , Jul 20, 2006

Zidane rightly fined for his actions but should Materazzi have been fined too ?

I seriously question setting this precedent.

What next ? For every crime committed both the perpetrator and the victim will be punished.

What message is FIFA sending out to our youngsters??

Had we all been privy to whatever Materazzi said and had it been incontrovertible evidence, then there may have been a case for " inciting violent reaction ".

As it is.. a player of great skill but with a history of poor temperament has been allowed to headbutt an opponent and come away as partial vicim in this sorry affair.

I'm not happy with this. It smacks of Blatterist influences......and we all know how upstanding his reputation is don't we !

Does this not set a dangerous precident?

We are know what a cantancerous bunch of half-wits our media are, wont we now be inundated with calls for every incident to be reviewed and action taken?

Ooops!
