I think premeditated is a bit strong, but I couldn't help but wonder if Matterazzi or someone else had done things in the past to get under Zidane's skin and whatever Matterazzi was the last straw. I can't image that Zidane would be so stupid as to lose it and get carded over a little smack talk in the biggest game in the world. In fact, I had wondered if there was something that had happened earlier that was missed by the camera,...maybe Matterazzi working on Zidane's shoulder he had just hurt. In any case, it was a classic dumb move at absolutely the wrong time.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
