In a Monday night phone interview on the 6:00 p.m. ET SportsCenter, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen talked about the controversy regarding the team’s decision to go for the end zone while leading by 24 points late, prompting Cowboys linebacker Keith Brooking to call the move “classless” and “B.S.”
“Heck, I was on the team that was running the score up I guess, so heck. . . . I figure, hey, it’s the professionals,” Allen told Brian Kenny. “It’s not like Pop Warner where you’re gonna have to write a letter after the game apologizing for it. I thought Coach did what he thought he had to do, and if I was on the other end of it, I might be pissed off, too.”
Then again, it’s not as if Brooking had clean hands. Or, as the case may be, clean forearms.
Consider this bit of evidence.
