What did ZZ say to Materazzi first? Do you know? If not then your judgement is based on half the alleged facts. Despite being partly Italian (and not a greasy one! :finger: ) and biased towards the Italian side, I would say that if that Materazzi's comments were unprovoked than he desreves what happened and deserves to be punished but there are a lot of "ifs" in this story.


Ok, apologies 2 u 4 the greasy comment. U think about it, what was said 2 zz must have been pretty bad 4 him 2 react like that, it wasn't just " u bald headed twat" or " stupid frog" comments, surely. I actually wanted Italy 2 win because they contributed 2 the best game of the finals ( v Germany )

No apology required - my :finger: was only in jest - and I agree - whatever was said certainly must have been offensive - and perhaps it was said to provoke the reaction that it got...who knows? I suspect the fact that ZZ's mother is seriously ill was probably a major factor.

He has usually been a fairly calm player and although I'm chuffed to bits about the result it is sad to see one the greats go out like this; Contrast it to Figo's final match where he got a standing ovation from the entire stadium..not just his own fans...thats really how it should have been for Zidane.

Either way, both players are refusing to comment which leads me to believe that both of them did something naughty, else they'd spill :lol:

I've not heard much about this one. I've heard the terrorist comment rumours but it's still no excuse for Zidane doing what he did.

Fifa will punish Materazzi accordingly and that will be enough as far as I'm concerned. If he did indeed make racist comments then he was out of order but still, the reaction was completely disgraceful by Zidane.

I'm gonna wait on this and see what exactly went on.

While emptying the recycle basket, I narrowly avoided a dove shit which hit the bin with an almighty BOOM!

From the splatter zone of about 1 metre, I was curious how fast a poo has accelerated to, by falling from that height. So I got out the calculator. Just to keep my brain in shape while collecting the dole. :)

The answer is: 28.3 miles per hour.

Given the following assumptions:

1. Poo velocity on exiting dove's bum is zero in the vertical axis - either it comes out horizontally or it comes out infinitely slowly.

2. TV ariel/bum height minus bin height is exactly 8,000 millimetres.

3. Zero air resistance (i.e. vacuum) between ariel/bum and bin, and smooth surface of poo in flight. Unlikely due to lumpy nature of poo.

Therefore, the above is an approxiation. So don't take it too seriously :D , but DO avoid bins under TV ariels with doves sitting on them. :yes:
