Pedro throwing Zimmer on the ground was one of the most shocking ones here. You don't throw an 80 year old on the ground! It's a miracle he wasn't hurt

Author David Welsh ( ago)
All these years later.. I am not afraid to say it.

I think Nancy Kerrigan masterminded the attack on herself.

Author Andrew Rivas ( ago)
the italian guy said something about his sister

Author Tubecast Spartan ( ago)
I like savagery in sports, but this is disgusting

Author Bradlee Carney ( ago)
Number 1 really?

Author Max Malten ( ago)
it strikes me how such a cunt like Materazzi played in a national team

Author cazia9 ( ago)
I'd argue that Zdano Chara's hit on Max Pacioretty belongs on this list for sure...that was a seriously cheap shot and nearly got Chara a police record

Author Desert Fearce ( ago)
Zidanes action was right , his mom was in hospital and the italian motherfucker told him he wished death to his family

Author Connor Edson ( ago)

I know that headbutt was cheap... but that guy flopped

Author MyTeamsBettah ( ago)
I'll never understand why Shoeless Joe ended up with a lifetime ban, simply for knowing and not telling. He was even acquitted by a jury. How can you punish the guy who batted .375 and hit the only home run in the series? There's no justice in it.

Author Alejandro Sanchez ( ago)
Jack Tatum shouldn't even be a mention. That was legal

Author David St-Michel ( ago)
To be honest, Materazzi was well-known to be an asshole, a shit-talker and provoke other players.

Author Gavin Odem ( ago)
Suarez should've just had his own compilation at the top 😂

Author eatmeatleet ( ago)

Author Pedro G ( ago)
I believe that Mourinho's finger at Tito's eye beats everything we've seen here.

Author MarcellusTheGreen ( ago)
In my limited experience but considerable observation, this is typical "sportsmanship".

Author Thomas Griffin ( ago)
Charles Martin body slamming Jim McMahon should have been on here for sure! (and I am a Packers fan!)

Author xXThexXRealxXLeafyxXSam ( ago)
How is Cantona jumping in the stands and kung fu kicking a fan not even on the honarable mentions?

Author Zach Smith ( ago)
Liverpool still wish they had Suarez though

#2 should be #1.

Author Nikola Mirchev ( ago)
Cantona attacking a fan?

Author Brother Uce ( ago)
The honourable mentions were better than the number 1, the head butt was weak and over acted

Author Chris Fields ( ago)

Author Mr Cool ( ago)

Author Tom Houlgate ( ago)
The footballer at no1 would go down like that, he barely touched him, that's a scuffle in rugby

Why the fuck did soccer make first a shitty head butt doesn't even compare to a stick to the neck

Author ParadiseHD ( ago)
this vid should basically be premier leauge matches

Author SASQUATCH 101 ( ago)
I swear football (or soccer) players have the balancing of a 6 year old. I mean they are really good at football and good at kicking and stuff, but one little tap on the right shoulder while running and they trip and for some reason tend to just grab their right knee and role back and forth on the ground. Just me?

Author Homeschool ( ago)
1:14 ..."inexcusable" unless the guy tells you to spit in his face, in witch case he was asking for it lolz.

Author matt jacobsen ( ago)
Joe Jackson was innocent

Author sooraj prakash ( ago)
suarez should have been no 1..for biting chellini..

Author Dark Quasar ( ago)
Todd burtezzi and Steve Moore should have been in the top 5

Author Dark Quasar ( ago)

Author B_man 266 ( ago)
But I mean soccer players just flop

Americans are like what is a zidane

Author Motasim Fawzi ( ago)
Materazzi deserved it.He was insulting Zidanes sister.

Author Gasp4r V1 ( ago)
You Americans have to understand that Football (soccer) is the most important, most practiced and most watched sport in the world. And the United States is not the world, a small example of this is how the rest of the world does not give a damn about the superbowl, beisball or basketball.
The headbutt...from one of the top 3 players of the world in that time... On the final of the most important championship in the world... On his retirement match! And costing France the world cup. that's why its nª1

Author Karla Santanach ( ago)
How hiring somebody to hurt your opponent (Tanya Harding) and leaving your a rival quadriplegic on a football field (Darryl Stingley) are less than a headbutt?? That's beyond me!

Author rjb903 ( ago)

Author Lynchology101 ( ago)
Long before Zidane there was Cantona karate kicks ftw.

Author DRmszas memo ( ago)
if you looking for zidane have to be patient untill match over i will told you zidane think about it in like 2 seconds and then turn back to hit this player cause all this about respect in front of himself.

Author Sharks Rule ( ago)
don't agree with number 1

Author LuongoLet20GoalsIn ( ago)
Soccer players are a bunch of faggots anyway.... no real surprise with that one

Author Gustavo8000 ( ago)
People on comment section talk shit about number one but does not even know how crazy was this moment:
-It was Zidane retirement game,in a world cup final;
-Over 700.000.000 people were watching the final;
-Materazzi talked shit about Zizou sister and his mother;
-And finally,he ended his career in a disgrace.Getting a bad image even if it was not his fault.The guy is a legend,but the most memorable thing he did in his career was this horrible moment.

Yes,there was other moments that deserved to be in number 1,but this is just a classic.

Great list.From Brazil.

Author Abdirahman CB ( ago)
do americans even understand how huge and hard is to lose a world cup trophy?!its not like your local sports team losing your local tournaments that you name them "world series". this is an event watched by more than a billion people around the world and it only happens once in four years and only the 32 best national teams can participate! without zidane being sent off the french were the favourites to win it so yeah its more important than any other thing on the list specially an individual sport like boxing.

Author Nathan Rivers ( ago)
Unsportsmanlike conduct, offense.

Author Etan The Giant Sassage ( ago)
oh sorry nancy that was my dick

Author Chester Bee ( ago)
What about Andrew Golata's nut shots?

Author Tika Sen ( ago)
i think the zidane headbutt is the worst in football history, he could have kill mazeratti, he was lucky it did not happen

Author Priyadarshan Roy ( ago)
Zidane wasn't insulted.....his mom was who was hospitalised due to her tumor.....nd her chances of staying alive was extremely less......Marco Materazzi was the name of the Italian player...and he deserved it

Author When You Get Cerebral Hemorrhage From The Wubs ( ago)
Why is it called ''unsportsmanlike''?
Why can't it be called ''unsportswomanlike''?

Author urizen666 ( ago)
Where is Badr Hari?

Author Gina McKay ( ago)
Bertuzzi has been a thorn in the side of many teams. Not sure if he's still playing, but it should have been an unsportsmanlike call a few years ago when he knocked out Oshie when he was still with St. Louis. It wasn't, so of course it didn't make the list. But it should have been.

Author Mitch S ( ago)
The sucker punch on Todd Bertuzzi definitely has to be #1. He broke 3 vertebrae, got a concussion and it ultimately ended his entire career. Definitely a bit worse than a simple head butt during a soccer game....

Author Steve Swangler ( ago)
even though it was honorable mention, thankyou for including don zimmer's unsportsmanlike attack on Pedro Martinez. I lost some respect for zimmer that day but gained much back after he apologized for his actions later on.

Author The_Vicman006 ( ago)
I saw this video almost a year ago, af ter a second review, Idk how you chose the "honorable mentions" two of the incidents "the Stigler incident" I get it, that was long ago and we may not have plenty of footage available. Bertucci vs Moore should be discussed too as well as the figure skating incident should be higher. All 3 incidents involved career ending injuries. Well not the figure skating, she returned, won silver then retired that same year. But these two Stigler and Moore ended their career at consequence of the incident

Author Irvin M ( ago)
the true story of zidane heabutted materazzi, that materazzi is saying bad words to zidane. zidane pissed off and then headbutted him

Author VenomZ ( ago)
So it's basically the equivalent of using a rocket in clash royale

Author Justin Thoß ( ago)
it's also unsportsmanlike to insult the family from your opponent

Author Michael Townley ( ago)
i think the most unsportsmanlike IS the hockey stick to the neck

Author Destroyer of Nations ( ago)
I bought a Zidane jersey because of that match. He's a badass

Author Goku kakarot ( ago)
Honorable mentions? I dunno man. ;)

Author Brian Corvello ( ago)

Author Kelsey Barnwell ( ago)
I remember the Bertuzzi Steve moore one ...... man that was something

Author SkillZ for life Jack ( ago)
Zidane did not deserve a place on this list or red card
