The final word...

FIFA have issued their punishments around the red card incident of the World Cup final. Zidane, since he is retired, has said that he will do community service events to fulfill his part. Importantly, both players have agreed that the statements were not racist in nature.


  1. You know, it is good it wasn't racist, and wonderful both agreed on the story. I think it worked out as positive as it could have.

  2. how long before rumors of a zidane return begin?

  3. i would have liked to see the two working together -- like running a soccer camp for kids -- to really put an end to this.

    plus that way there's no carry over to the next season w/suspensions.
