Wrong Dude:

First of all it's not the French PR spin, it's the Zidane spin. Remember his interview, he made himself the victim. All of this to take the focus off the fact that he let his team down.

Second, this is another bogus statement I have heard lately, that the sending of had no bearing on the result. Of coarse it did, when you team leader and top penalty shot taker has been kicked out of the game, it affects the moral of the team. Maybe Trezequet wouldn't of missed. Who knows, once the event has taken place it alters all that happens after.
