“Making matters worse, the Dolphins are calling the Jets, quote, ‘cheaters,’ after Dolphins corner Nolan Carroll was tripped by conditioning coach Sal Alosi.  Alosi stuck out his knee while Carroll was covering a punt, sending the cornerback flying.  He apologized for the incident.”
(ESPN)

He did what? That’s the reaction across the NFL, after a coach trips a player during a live play. Of course, it’s all caught on tape -- like -- a gagillion times. Now, the coach - Sal Alosi - is apologizing. He’s taking tons of flack. Some are calling for him to be fired. Here’s the play-by-play from CBS Sports.

“Well it looks like he got tripped by one of the members of the Jets staff.
Well this is just uncalled for in the NFL.  Watch the knee here being stuck out on purpose on Nolan Carroll.  Not sure who that is, but they should be ashamed of themselves.  That has no place in any kind of athletic event.”


Fox Sports has
Alosi’s apology -- and a good freeze frame of his offense -- frozen for NFL history.

"I made a mistake that showed a total lapse in judgment. My conduct was inexcusable and unsportsmanlike and does not reflect what this organization stands for. I accept responsibility for my actions as well as any punishment that follows."

Sorry, schmorry.  The Dolphins’ Channing Crowder was having none of it.  On ESPN he says:

"I wish they'd tripped me. I'd have broken that old man's leg. I didn't see anything. He stuck his leg out and tripped him? He should be ashamed of himself. A grown man from the coaching staff? That's high character."

On NBC Sports, former player Rodney Harrison makes no bones.  Alosi needs to be punished.

“The guy could have really seriously been hurt.  What if that guy could have tore up his ACL and never played football again.  Would he have given him his salary?  I think it was the most idiotic, most selfish, most degrading thing you can do on the sideline.”

The Village Voice notes
, yes, Alosi should and will be punished.  But then, at least he was inspired.  Which is more than you can say for the slumping Jets.

“By the time you read this, the Jets will at the very least have suspended Alosi for the rest of the season without pay. It would be a shame if the Jets punished him any more harshly than that -- Alosi, after all, showed more aggressiveness than anyone on the Jets' offense yesterday.”

So what do you think?  Temporary total collapse of good judgment?  Or nice tackle coach?
