Good comparison imo.

Tucker is dirty, no one will argue on that.

But do someone will label Kovalev as dirty or being a selfish player because he took care of Tucker with his elbow ?

That was not a classy move, and he could have been suspended for that.

Yet, everyone applauded him for taking care of the cheap shot artist.

So, please, stop telling Zidane cost the game to France. There were 10 freakin' minutes left, and the Italians didn't score. Trezeguet would have still kicked a penalty shot with Zidane on the pitch.

And the Italian players were so ready for these penalty shots, they would have won no matter who was facing them.

Zidane had a pretty dumb answer to a stupid provokation, he got a red card, case closed.

Italia won the Cup, let's not let this stuff overshadow that important fact.
