Happily, the French have been sent packing from the World Cup. Sadly, they've done so with what has become a characteristic lack of class. They got into the tournament by cheating (a handball by Thierry Henry against Ireland) in the first place, so there's no big surprise there. However, the disrespect they showed to the host nation (South Africa) and its team (Bafana Bafana) is simply shameful. Good riddance!
