First of all, almost everyone in the world claimed that Cannavaro bribed the journalists who voted for him for the Ballon D'Or. Now, probably the same people will claim that all the captains and coaches of all the international football countries are being bribed for the award of the FIFA World Player.

This proves one thing. Many football fans on this planet only support football for specific reasons - they are blinded by the players they support and club they support. As long as the players awarded are not from the club they support, they just won't accept it. Many football fans in this world are extremely bias. I saw how Cannavaro performed in the World Cup and acknowledged how perfect his display was eventhough he was still with Juventus. I was going nuts at how he played perfectly during the whole tournament. To me, if you did perform, no matter what club you play for, you will always get my respect and mention. No matter how big you are, if you play dirty, you have to be condemned. Simple as that.

When I read through all those negative comments against Cannavaro, I just have to shake my head to see all those extreme hatred shown by these football fans. They just really cannot accept a player who performed well. Let's face it, most football fans or almost everybody prefer to support goal scoring players like Ronaldinho, Zidane or Henry. Probably that's another reason.

Cannavaro, Congratulations! Won the Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball) as European Footballer of the Year, World Soccer Magazine's Player of the Year and now the FIFA World Player of the Year. I am glad at least all the coaches and captains of the international teams acknowledge your great play. At least I am proven not to be blind and an extreme bias football fan.
