The Aussie Cricketers Have Nothing On The Azzurri When It Comes To Sledging

The Aussie Cricket team has been criticised in the past for their sledging of opposition players. Marco Materazzi of the Azzurri takes the cake. His apparent comments that Zinedine Zidane's mother was a "terrorist whore" are far worse than anything the Aussies are known to have come up with. Read the Independent Online Edition article.

I knew he had said something about Zidane's mother. If the guy said that in the street no-one would condemn Zidane for punching him out. Perhaps we shouldn't string him up afterall.

It's all idle speculation at the moment. I think we should wait to hear what was really said - if we do indeed ever learn that - before we judge either. That said, we've all had someone try to get under our skin during a sporting event. No matter what happens, we can't let our temper hurt the team.

It'll all come out in the wash. Isn't it great that footballers learn other languages so that they can be insulted wherever they go?
