AFA: Media to blame for Maradona tirade

AFA: Media to blame for Maradona tirade

Argentina's Football Association says the media is to blame for Diego Maradona's angry tirade on live television.
The AFA sent a formal report to FIFA dismissing Maradona's profanity-laced news conference in Uruguay as the natural result of tough questions from reporters. FIFA is investigating.
Maradona faces a possible five-game suspension and a fine of almost $20,000 if FIFA determines that he lowered himself "through acts or words ... in a way that undermines human dignity."
Maradona has called it a "momentary outburst" caused by reporters who unfairly accused him of not working hard enough.
