Can you really blame Delvecchio though for this reaction and the head butt? I know he’s looking to stand up and protect his goalkeeper, but this is too much. Materazzi is inciting players. It’s nearly entrapment when he invades the other players space. Just give them both yellow cards. Poor Zidane, such a vicious reaction cost him so much in the World Cup. In the video below Delvecchio head butts Materazzi. It looks like Delvecchio is trying to stand up and Materazzi gets right in his face.
