This seems like something that came from Rex Ryan's leadership and the general attitude he brings to the organization. He is vulgar, seems classless...and it trickles down throughout the whole staff and the players. The Jets have been in trouble several times this season. Sure, the reporter "issue" did seem to be more of a creation of that attention-seeking woman...they still acted in a way that allowed her to get her desired-result, a blowup in the media.

The Jets are sinking to Belichick levels.

I think he should have been fired, but the Jets trotting him out to apologize without taking any actions makes it appear that may have approved of, or at least not been offended his actions. He definitely got off lightly. Sure the money is a huge chunk of his paycheck at his salary...but he should be out of a job for that crap.

Woody Hayes?

There's a famous B&W incident from a Michigan-OSU games in 1971 where Buckeye coach Woody Hayes blew up...not sure if that's the incident or not.

Here's another one of his "highlights":

Re: Jets Trainer Trips Miami Player

He could have really hurt the guy. I would ban him for two years from the NFL. I hope the NFL fines the Jets 250K+ and takes a way a draft pick. This is completely unacceptable.

Re: Jets Trainer Trips Miami Player

Here's a player who came off the bench to make a tackle...funny:


Story about play: Dickie Maegle tackle



Also a list...a coach made a tackle at#7 on the list:
ESPN.com - Page2 - The List: Coaches gone wild

7. Fairfield coach tackles opposing player
November 1978. Fairfield (Connecticut) University led Western New England College 15-14 in the third quarter. Western New England's Jim Brown, returning a kickoff, had eluded every Fairfield defender and appeared to be on his way to a touchdown. Then, Fairfield coach Ed Hall ran out and tackled Brown at midfield. "Are you out of your mind, coach?" said Brown. "I guess I am," said Hall.
Hall, then 48, had played running back and defensive back for the University of Bridgeport in his prime, about two decades earlier. Brown was credited with an 84-yard TD run. The ref tossed Hall from the game.
"Something just happened to me," said Hall, "and the next thing I knew, the referee was standing over me and screaming at me to get out of the game. As I started walking to the rear of the bleachers, with the crowd booing me, I broke down and cried."
Even weeks later, Hall couldn't explain what happened. "I've been coaching for 22 years, and there have been many instances where opposing players have run right in front of me. But I never had a strong impulse to tackle them."

Re: Jets Trainer Trips Miami Player

I give Mr. Alosi credit for being a man, immediately stepping up and admitting he did it instead of playing the plausable deniability game that so many people do nowadays in sports. "we had a different interpretation of the rules", "the illegal substance must have come from an over the counter cold medicine", "the steak i ate last night must have had hormones in it", or the best "i have a rare disorder called over-trained athlete syndrome".

on teh flip side, i firmly believe those guys standing in line right at the edge were there to act as an interference, they would claim they were in the space they are allowed to be, it just so happened that they formed a line as close as they legally could be. i believe this instruction came from a higher up coach, that the same dolphin player whad run down the sideline earlier in the game, and Alosi took things to far. which i understand, hes explanation of he just wasnt thinking i believe. weve all done things without thinking then a second later just cant beleive what we had done.

i applaud Mr. Alosi for standing up like a man but when an organizatin like the jets pushes the envelope of what is legal, you have to know that sometimes things are going to get pushed to far. you cant play on that fine line and not cross over sometimes.

Re: Jets Trainer Trips Miami Player

While I agree with the general sentiment of your post - particularly as it applies to the Jets organization. I don't give Alosi much credit for his lack of denial (some, but not a whole lot).

It's easy to "man up" when your caught on film. Plausible deniability? The tape clearly shows him watching the runner approach and bending his knee just as the runner is passing him. In light of the video, if anything he could say would constitute a credible denial to you, then you and I have very different ideas on the meaning of "plausible".

Yeah, it did seem like a canned, public apology that we see every time someone gets caught these days. The owner's wife probably wrote it for him.

If he went to the player right after the game, on the field, on his own and not pushed by anyone else to do it...that could be accepted as a sincere apology. He probably didn't intend for the player to get hurt, but it's still a dumb thing to do in the first place.

Re: Jets Trainer Trips Miami Player

Also, did he immediately step up? Was he the first guy down to Nolan? Did he even approach him to make sure he was alright while he was lying on the field? Did Alosi approach Nolan as he got up to walk away? No. Only after the game, when it was common knowledge he had been caught on film, that Alosi apologized. Maybe it was sincere - we'll never know b/c it wasn't immediate.

He pulled a cowardly act and, as far as I know, acted cowardly immediately afterword. Sure, it's hard to "man up" right away but, to get credit from me for "being a man", you do the hard thing not the easy one. Alosi had an opportunity to show remorse w/out the taint of "oops you caught me" and didn't avail himself of it.

Due to the unsportsmanlike and dangerous nature of the underlying act, and Alosi's failure to show immediate (or nearly immediate) demonstrable remorse, everything Alosi does later is questionable to me.

I think this is worse than the Woody Hayes meltdown. At least it was a dead ball when Hayes went upside the Clemson LB. Here it was a live ball...

I think the closest analogy to last weekend's play is the 1954 Cotton Bowl where an Alabama player on the bench came off the bench to knock down Rice RB, Dicky Moegle, who was running free for a TD.

BTW Rice clobbered Alabama in that game. Times have changed since 1954 in terms of college football programs...

weve heard some far fetched "deniability" coming out off athletes mouths lately. but no, i dont see or cant imagine what story he could come up with that would reach the level of plausability. i guess im giving him credit for not even trying it, clear and convincing evidence aside.

i thought he came out and said he did it almost immediately after the game as well.

Fair enough. We just disagree on the value of his actions afterword.

Sure, he came up after the game but by that time I am sure it was all over the Jets sideline, the Miami sideline and the airwaves. Everyone knew exactly who did it [If I was the owner, I'd have had the guy off the sideline and in my box sooner than pronto].

The only time he could have acted w/out the influence of outside pressure was immediately or very nearly immediately after the act. Very shortly after that, anything he did had some level of outside pressure and he did only what he "had" to do in the face of that pressure. So, does he get credit for not concocting some implausible lie in the face of incredible pressure to do the right thing? Okay. Some. A tiny tiny bit - He didn't make his original despicable act worse.

But, if that's the standard for "being a man" about our actions, we are setting the bar pretty damn low.

Old Woody punched one of his OWN players too.

Crazy man was fired for that.


Woody Hayes had a history of neurotic meltdowns on the field, so perhaps in total, he was worse, but the crap this Jets coach pulled is a severe offense on its own.
