FIFA make Materazzi and Zizou plea

Zidane's headbutt is probably one of the most iconic images in the history of the World Cup. FIFA know this, and want to smooth over the cracks by sending Zizou and Materazzi to prison... sort of.

FIFA honcho and bloodhound lookalike, Sepp Blatter said "We are working on getting together Materazzi and Zidane to bring an end to this story... they could go to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was in prison."

Mandela, South Africa president from 1994 until 1999, was sentenced to life in prison on Robben Island in 1964 and remained there for 18 years. Blatter added: "It is a pity, I have to say, when a World Cup final ends with a red card."

Can anyone shed any light on this nonesense?
