Video: Jets’ Coach Trips Dolphins’ Player

Sal Alosi trips Nolan Carroll. (NFL Videos)

UPDATE: Sal Alosi’s suspension has been upped to indefinite.
——————–
UPDATE: Sal Alosi has been suspended without pay for the remainder of the season and fined $25,000.

For a long time, people have been accusing the Jets of being cheaters. Now, those accusations finally have some validity. On Sunday, during a Dolphins’ punt late in the 3rd quarter, Jets’ strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi stuck out his knee and tripped Dolphins’ defender Nolan Carroll. Carroll was injured on the play.

The Jets still have a magic number of two to clinch a playoff berth, but they still have to go to Pittsburgh AND Chicago before getting to host the Bills. Which isn’t going to be an easy game anyway.

No word yet on any discipline, but if Ndamukong Suh can be fined for playing within the NFL’s ridiculous “rules,” then Alosi should definitely get the chair. Afterwards, Alosi said,

“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.”

Carroll responded,

“We got a W. That’s not my problem. That’s the Jets’ problem. We just move on. I felt contact, but I’ve got to watch film. I can’t comment on it right now.”

  2. Jets fan here. While his actions was bush league and completely wrong, it’s a bit early to call the Jets cheaters don’t you think?

    His punishment is pretty severe actually. He probably makes 100K (max) pretax in salary as a strength coach so a 25K fine and suspension w/o pay for the rest of the season is a lot.

  3. I still would have preferred to see him fired. Regardless of identity or salary, this can’t be allowed. If Carroll had torn his ACL, then what? Fired for sure.
