Yeah, Right

Please, FIFA, give me a break!
First, we have the FIFA campaign for "My Game Is Fair Play". And then, FIFA gives Zidane the Golden Ball, an award for his most valuable World Cup Performance. And then, as if we weren't confused enough already, FIFA opens an investigation about the headbutt to "to enable [FIFA] to clarify the circumstances surrounding the incident as exactly as possible." Please remind me why we need to be exact about an incident recorded on videotape and shown repeatedly around the world. No. I have a better idea. Can the old dynosaurs at FIFA please stop distracting us and can the rest of us go back to enjoying the game and playing it?
