Maradona recently apologized for his famous "la mano de Dios" goal against England in the 1986 World Cup, http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/02/01/2152041.htm?section=world Why? It was obvious that he used his hand, but a bad call was made and the goal stood. Argentina went on to win the game 2-1. Other games in all kinds of sports have been lost and won because of bad calls. It just happens. No need to apologize.
