Gone! What a way to retire, and just as I was reflecting on just how I rather liked him. Way to blow a reputation with the very last act of a fine career.

I actually laughed when it first happened. I feel guilty now. Pair of big girls' blouses.

Wayne Rooney commits a red card foul, Ronaldo and other Portugese players protest to the referee but do not brandish imaginary cards. english media turns Ronaldo into the devil incarnate and ALL criticism is directed at the Ronaldo.

contrast with....Zidane commits red card foul, Italian players go crazy , Bufon runs across the field to protest even..english media direct ALL criticism toward ZZ and not so much as a mention of Italian players pestering the ref...

who clued the ref in that zidane clocked him and should send him off? did he see the replay on the jumbotron? did the linesmen help him in? did he get word from above?

The ref clearly saw the Rooney incident and didn't need his atttention drawing towards it. He clearly didn't see tonights one. And what Zidane did was utterly outrageous and clearly intentional. The Italian players were quite restrained about it, in my view.

Do you think the pestering made any difference, Lomo? The way I saw it, the fourth official ended up making an important call (which is another debate for another day, of course).

As I saw it, the ref ignored the protests until his fellow officials intervened. Your mileage may vary.

in order to be a great player you have to have done something very controversial at the world cup.

zidane has sealed his place in the history books.

unlike many of the others, it was certainly a red card that no one can dispute - right in the sternum, clearly covered on replay

materazzi didn't see it coming

BBC report says that the replay wasn't shown inside the stadium, so a big sense of disbelief among the crowd int he stands.

I'm still gutted. I had a big party with people over at my apartment, not all of whom were watching the game closely. But when we saw the replay, none of us could believe it. I saw the ref turn away from the linesman and reach for the arsekartje, or whatever it is in German. I knew then, and my heart sank.

I feel like the kid seeing Shoeless Joe Jackson after the Black Sox scandle. Say it ain't so, Zizou. I'm just disappointed. Pissed off, yes, angry and bitter, but most of all, just saddened.

None of the controversial desicions were replayed on the big screen in the stadium in the matches I went to. Even if the ref had obviously got it right. Or own goals, for that matter...
I suspect some of the crowd, many of whom were booing both the ref and the Italians after the incident (I guess because they thought it was a dive, not having seen it), will be feeling a bit embarassed about that when they catch a replay on TV.
