Dec. 12: New York Jets assistant Sal Alosi apologized after blatantly tripping Miami's Nolan Carroll on the sideline during Gang Green's 10-6 loss to the Dolphins Sunday.
New York Jets assistant coach Sal Alosi apologized after blatantly tripping Miami's Nolan Carroll on the sideline during Gang Green's 10-6 loss to the Dolphins Sunday.
The strength and conditioning coach was ushered out of New Meadowlands Stadium by a staff member, ignoring interview requests by the New York Post and protected by two security members at an exit.
After the Jets confirmed he was the guilty tripper and the NFL announced it was reviewing the play, Alosi apologized.
"I made a mistake that showed a total lapse in judgment," Alosi said in a statement, adding that he apologized to Carroll and Dolphins coach Tony Sparano. < -- snip -- >

Jets have lost all their swagger since last Monday night.
This guy’s career in football is over....He wont be allowed to clean the toilets at a high-school game...
Like the Bears, I never figured they were for real in the first place.
Just sickening. I hope he reaps what's he's sown.
I really hope so. He needs a good a@@-kicking on top of it.
It gets much much worse than that in the NFL. Heck they allow convicted felons to be quarterbacks.
This guy needs to be fired and banned from the game for life.
Ya’d think this would teach players to stay in bounds and away from the opposing team while out of bounds.
Why can’t a convict be in the NFL? Should convicts be allowed to work at all?
How much more debt to you does Michael Vick have to pay? How much does he owe you?
He should be canned
As a long-suffering jets fan, FIRE HIM!
“Why cant a convict be in the NFL? Should convicts be allowed to work at all?”
I was pointing out that the NFL allows and even encourages people who have done much worse than this coach.
Rape, wife beaters, dog killers, druggies are all NFL star EMPLOYEES.
“How much more debt to you does Michael Vick have to pay? How much does he owe you?”
He doesn’t owe me anything. I thought he was scum before his arrest and nothing has changed. So I choose not to buy their product.
Like BDS (Bush derangement syndrome), Vick haters seem to have a similar mind-set....
Vick is FAR from the only criminal in the NFL. In fact he’s a lightweight.
I thought I couldn’t think any less of the Jets sportmanship and class. I was wrong.
The Steelers are being targeted by the NFL. Wonder who the Rooneys pi$$ed off.
Maybe it's because the old man supported Obama . . .
I have no problem with Vick playing in NFL, Just think he should have to pay restitution. I am thinking 1 years of NFL salary for each dog he was involved in the killing, torturing, or fighting. Lets see if he really loves the game or is just out for the easy money. I bet Vick gets busted for another felony before his career is over, remember its not his fault he was raised that way.
Bush went to prison?
The apologists like you are amazing.
This guy trips a player who is running out of bounds. The guy didn’t move more than 6 inches so the player was as much at fault as him.
You rant about wanting the coach fired but make excuses for someone like Vick.
Amazing double standard.
He barely stuck his knee out at all, didn’t clip the Dolphin player’s knee, who merely lost his balance had his feet come together and fell. Boo hoo. Molehill = Mountain thatnks to crybabies.
Since he was out of bounds wouldn't that cause a penalty had he touched the ball on the punt?
C’mon now...he’s the strength and conditioning coach - he was just demonstrating how to do “lunges”. </sarc>
That's the way I saw it too. I've only seen one video from that one angle about 30 times though.
It appeared to me to be more of a brace incase the player ran into him.
Why did the guy apologize then. C'mon folks! It was deliberate.
I just saw the video- and the player was so far out of bounds he almost ran over the coach.
The coach could easily say he was just reacting to almost being run over, if it was no so obvious he meant it
If he had not moved his leg he might have been hit anyway
Vick is paid for his crimes; he served time in prison. Also, I saw a story that he only gets about $4700 a month out of his salary until he repays those he owes money.
Kinda hard to pay restitution to a dead dog.
“actually some or your co-workers almost certainly have convictions for various crimes”
No they don’t. I do back ground checks on my employees.
He should be banned from Professional Sports forever. Just as Pete Rose was humiliated so should Vick he did the crime and because he has a certain color skin all is forgiven.
Vick has paid his debt to society but I don’t believe he should have been allowed to return. Nobody has a right to play in the NFL. Being a QB in the NFL is different than a normal job. Like it or not, kids look up to Pro players. Tripping a guy is not as bad as brutally killing dogs in my view. Why all the outrage over this incident?
Good point. If the coach had just given a blank “It was a complete acciddent” Bart Simpson approach, I’ll bet he could have brazened it out.
If he was worried about a player running into him, maybe he should have stepped back a foot or two.
You have a point, and it’s one that most people choose to ignore.
Players in the NFL are role models. Heck, their pictures are on the walls of teenage kids. Youngsters often wear their jerseys to school. It’s not the same as being a grocery store clerk or a bus driver.
I’m not saying that ex-felons should be banned from the NFL.
But I am saying that when this devolves into ex-felons and accused rapists playing against other ex-felons and accused rapists, that’s bad for society.
I was wondering the same thing. Maybe because of all the squawking going on, he was pressured into it.
“The Dolphins player has NOTHING to learn from this”
Sure he does, stay in bounds.
“I wonder if those 5 guys were placed there to try and disrupt the gunners during punts.’
As long as they are off the playing field who cares? Or are you suggesting the players should be allowed to run wherever they want. perhaps we should start making passes into the stands. It sure would be more exciting for the crowd.
Not condoning what he did, but why on earth would the Miami player be running outside the sidelines heading right toward 5 guys standing in the way? Not a smart move on his part.
Vick did go to jail, and he was humiliated. This is much different than what Pete Rose did.
Yeah...let’s bring back Matt Jones.
Isn't a late hit 4 yards out of bounds just as bad? And they are not as rare as a sideline tripping.
I'll watch it again I guess. It'll no doubt be on all day with so many crybabies.
I didn't see him lean into anything either. Just bent a knee. If he had more time, he may have even....(gasp) taken his hands out of his pockets and pushed the OUT OF BOUNDS player away!!. For that I guess we'd be expected to be calling for him to be hanged.
That was a rhetorical question...because the answer is obvious. He apologized because he did it deliberately and knew it was wrong.
Can you say ray ray 52?
NFL is a pro-Obama s**t and so is the NBA, NCAA and MLB.
Ok I just watched it again. It looks like the coach does a 1/4 turn and shifts his weight to the left foot, while bending that knee.
The only question is, would the player have missed him otherwise, and I don’t think he would have.
A distinct possibility.
