Bark: I can't believe this isn't a storm in a teacup

I can't believe the whole Zidane World Cup headbutt thing is still rumbling on in the press. Okay, so he's arguably the greatest football player of the last 20 years, and he got sent off for headbutting someone in his last game. Of course, doing that on the pitch is inexcusable, but what about the things Materazzi said to him that provoked him into doing it? If he did call Zidane a "son of a terrorist whore", as some lipreading experts claim, or racially abused him, that's surely just as badly out of order as the headbutt. And do you believe Materazzi when he says that he "doesn't know what a terrorist is"? Talk about media spin. I know footballers usually aren't too bright, but that's a bit much. Then again, he was stupid enough to sign for Everton in the past, so maybe not...

Still, in time-honoured, truly tasteless internet tradition, someone with too much time on their hands has created a Flash game to help you recreate the moment. Enjoy.
