Dirty cheap shot

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- One of the dirtiest plays you'll see all year happened here at Jets-Dolphins.

Miami's Nolan Carroll was running on the Jets' sideline covering a kickoff when Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi stuck out his leg and tripped Carroll.

I saw it. I was stunned. That type of stuff happens in backyards and prison yards but not in the 21st century NFL.

The Jets confirmed it was Alosi and the Dolphins, understandably, were absolutely furious.

"It's a sad situation," said Miami linebacker Karlos Dansby. "There's no place for that in football."

Alosi issued a statement saying: "I made a statement that showed a total lapse in judgment. My conduct was inexcusable and unsportsmanlike and does not reflect what this organization stands for."

Alosi said he apologized to the Dolphins and Jets.

I played lacrosse against this guy in high school and I will never forget him. He was a great athlete and the best player of the team.  The reason I will never forget him is not because of his ability but because during our game he actually pushed his coach.  
This was in 1994 he played for Massapequa High School.  

Amazing when you think back and say "I wonder what ever happened to that guy, he was a real you know what"...

Well they grow up and they are still a real you know what. 

Classic.

This frequent amount of remarks and comparison to Vick is getting real fucking old, the guy killed some dogs, he's a "monster", he's this and he's that. People need to shut the hell up on this issue. This guy is a damn good QB and what happens to him or what he does is his business. Like you have never done something shameful or morally wrong with the understanding it was completely wrong. Get over it. Other then that, your a dolphins fan? A bad one i can guess. This guy needs to be fired.

The guy got fined 25K and suspended the rest of the season. That's a pretty stiff fine for a guy who maybe makes 90-100K! Then consider he's been suspended the last 3 games without pay, that's a little over 1/5th of his salary, so there goes another 16-20K.

I think the guy's a douche, and that was a totally uncalled for move, but I think you'd be better off firing the guy than taking 40K out of his pocket. That's rough for an average guy, as much as I think what he did was BS, I hope this fine doesn't put him over any financial edge...

@PhinsFan you are dead-on the money. It's a shame it happened, but it did. I'm sure if Alosi's leg would've been injured with the contact, the tone of all these comments would be totally different, and he did put himself at risk also.

Dolphins fan here, and I'd have to say that the guy needs to be punished... but not fired. He should be fined by the Jets and suspended.

He interfered with the game intentionally from the sidelines, which is a big deal. Was he trying intentionally to hurt someone? I doubt it. He was trying to trip the Dolphinsplayer in a subtle way. Yes, he should be punished.... but alot of this is just smoke filled coffee house crap. He didnt choke anyone or run on the field. Punish him and let him learn from it. If you hate Rex Ryan, then you probably have some other ideas about what should happen to him. But the media over-reacts to everything.... and so do haters.

Dirty move and he got filmed doing it.....  Punish the guy, but dont act like the guy is a monster torturing and killing dogs.

Buddy, youre way off. Did you forget about Rex flipping off Miami fans??? Would Shula do that?! What about sexually harrassing that reporter??  JETS are the most classless organization from owner on down to the fans. Surprised a FINS fan would EVER come to the JETS defense.

AES, i couldn't have said it better myself!!  That pathetic organization needs to be taken down a few notches by the NFL.  Fine him and throw his ass out of the league.  I wouldn't expect any better from those bozos in ny/nj.

I agree. He should be punished, because it was dumb and uncalled for. But you can't blame Rex Ryan.
