It's kind of strange. The video shows Materazzi performing all sorts of illegal tackles and dangerous plays, yet he is being vilified for "trash-talk".
Here's a scenario- it's 110 minutes into the most important game you've played in 6 years. It's also the last game of your career. A well known overly aggressive player grabs your boob and says your mom and sister are ******. There's 10 minutes left before penalty kicks which is your specialty. What do you do? If the ball goes anywhere near him, you know the ref won't kick you out if you tackle him hard this late in the game. You could ignore it and make sure you make your penalty. Or you could head butt him in the chest and get booted out and be forced to live in shame everywhere except for France. Tough choice.
