Argentina in my opinion is the ultimate football country. I enjoy watching them play even more than I do Brazil. Having said that, my hopes were low for this team because of Maradona, I thought he could be a distraction to the team, but the players have really shine in this World Cup, and Maradona’s intoxicating persona has even helped to keep the players out of the spotlight, that has led to a more relaxed and confident team overall. Mexico played really good, and they lost to a football powerhouse. If Argentina loses against Germany, I wouldn’t feel like the “albicelestes” are an incompetent team, they just lost to one of the best team in the football landscape.

I saw that and was surprised the commentators ignored it. I think his reaction was totally unnecessary, but these players(and all in general, not just argentinians) think they are some kind of Gods who can treat everyone around them like their help or like garbage. Maybe he took "humbleness" and "humility" lessons from Maradona.

Did you even watch the video? He was celebrating with his teammates in a non-flamboyant huddle...cameraman got too close and hit him with the camera.

Did you personally get treated like garbage or do you "just know?"

I did, maybe YOU didn't watch the complete video. After he has hit with the camera, Heize THEN hit the camera I'm not the only one, who thinks this way...

"Gabriel Heinze was hit in the face while celebrating Argentina’s second goal, and didn’t take too kindly to it, slapping the camera away"

Or do you excuse that behavior because he is an Argentinian player?

So he pushed the camera away after being hit with it in the face. Maybe there is no excuse for a professional cameraman to hit a player in the head with his camera?

Well first, the above is stating the fact, not siding with your opinion. I'd excuse the behavior even if it had been the blood rival Forlan. The whole thing is really a non-issue.

Give a break, the camera man didn't hit him on purpose, the camera man got too close and Heinze made a sudden move at the same time. Just an accident, I'm sure the camera man had no intention of hitting him with the camera.

Accidents happen, you know like refs not seeing offsides. No need to overreact or mistreat people ON PURPOSE. Anybody can make an honest mistake even refs.

I don't excuse that kind of behavior, I don't have anything against Argentina, but if their players show this kind of semigod attitude, sure I will not root for them anymore. I can't stand egocentric people that are rude to others.

Again, I think it's a non-issue. I'm sure neither of them has given it another thought.....not exactly the same kind of accident though.

That's an interesting way to formulate generalizations.
