Sports violence: NFL hands out latest punishments - Article Photos 6/7

FILE - In this July 12, 2006 photo released by Canal Plus, French soccer star Zinedine Zidane talks during a television interview, in Paris, while a photo in the background shows Zidane giving Italy's Marco Materazzi a head-butt during a World Cup soccer match. Violence is part of the game in many sports. But when athletes cross the line it can attract the attention of authorities _ sometimes from within their sport and in other cases from criminal prosecutors. The punishment of four members of the New Orleans Saints for participating a cash-for-hits bounty system targeting opponents is the latest example but not the only one.
