Precipitous Prank Posts Dismay for Sideline Props
Retrieved by Pat Darnell and Chip Shot
Last Sunday, a New York Jets' "strength and conditioning coach," Sal Alosi, stuck out his knee and "tripped up" a Miami player who darted along the sideline near him. It was blatant, and shown on national television. Once it happened -- it was shown over and over. It has come up on cable TV all week now.
Ryan added that he admired the fact Alosi never denied what he did, and “that he stood up and he took responsibility.”
Yeah, right. How could this lowly coach have a chance to deny he did this?
Incident my ass. Conspiracy, b_|_lsh*t!
It was a cheap shot...!
While so many things hang in the balance, here we, John Q. Public, patron of the game, are living through the "Great Recession," while this fellow, Sal Alosi, has to resign his "dream" job and is fined $25,000, for some a year's salary. Seems right.
One has to be blind, simple, and dumb to not be startled by this cheap shot. An article says: "[the tripping coach on the sideline] Sal Alosi was a linebacker for Hofstra University from 1996-2000, and even earned an award for sportsmanship and fair play both on and off the field during his college career. (HERE)"
" ... Alosi stuck out his left knee on the sideline and tripped Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll, who was covering a punt in the third quarter of Miami’s 10-6 win Sunday [November 12, 2010]. [(ibid)]"MooPig wants to know again, just who are all those people lining the sidelines at pro football games? It looks like a bunch of birds sitting on a line. All those people have no business on the field. And the players are too close to the playing field.
"I look forward to a time again when a team is allowed twelve players and one coach on the field. Players go both ways, with one substitute," says Brock Brukowski, Editor, MooPig's Cheap Shot Department. [Sure that will happen]
One is reminded of a playoff game when a baseball fan reached over the outfield fence and caught a long hit ball, that was still in play. This almost cost the fan his life, as he received death threats after doing this.
Another source reports:
" ... New York Jets' strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi tripped Miami cornerback Nolan Carroll as he ran out of bounds on punt coverage during the Jets' 10-6 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon, and later admitted that it was intentional.[SOURCE] ... "Cheap shot by any other name is still CHEAP SHOT ... an unfair, unsporting, attack on a vulnerable target.
... "You can spit in people's face nowadays in the league and not get fined," Crowder, who was referring to an incident earlier this season in which the NFL decided against imposing any fines after investigating complaints by the Dolphins that Baltimore fullback Le'Ron McClain spit in Crowder's face, told ESPNNewYork.com. ... " [(ibid)]"Our MooPig Cheap Shot Department keeps looking for a clue as to "why, how, what ... this coach on the sideline was thinking?" said Dirty Pete.
