Shame Shame: Jets' Coach Trips Dolphins' Player From Sidelines
It has been an undeniably rough week for the New York Jets' football team. First, getting trounced on Monday Night Football by division rival New England Patriots, then being held to a pair of field goals on Sunday versus another division foe in the Miami Dolphins. While their lack of ability to provide for even a single touchdown over the past two outings is nothing short of a disgrace for the high powered gang, the organization reached an all new low after one of its strength and conditioning coaches, Sal Alosi, premeditatedly tripped Dolphins corner back, Nolan Carroll during yesterday's loss.
While in the heat of coverage, the rookie CB found himself tiptoeing the sideline, when out of nowhere, Alosi merely poked out his knee which in turn dug its way into Carroll's passing thigh. Immediately falling to the turf, the Dolphins' defense-men was then escorted to the his appropriated bench due to the effects of the incident. Per the confusion, the footage was re-winded to the replay where it was then clearly evident of the Jets' assistant's doings.
When approached after the contest in regards to the happenings, Alosi regretfully informed, "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."
While Carroll disclosed of no ill feelings towards Alosi or the Jets' organization, it is sure some form of accountability and punishment will be shelled out likely by the Jets themselves, as well as the NFL.
And tit for tat, the Dolphins went on to win 10-6. Karma? You be the judge.
