We’ve heard a few suggestions that the intentional trip by Jets strength & conditioning coach Sal Alosi on Sunday wasn’t that big of a deal. A media creation.
That’s a ridiculous notion. The Jets clearly know it’s a big deal and the league will have their say soon enough.
Alosi released a statement on Sunday night, after the Jets already apologized for the incident.
“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. I spoke to Coach Sparano and Nolan Carroll to apologize before they took off. I have also apologized to Woody [Johnson], Mike [Tannebaum] and Rex [Ryan.] I accept responsibility for my actions as well as any punishment that follows.”
Miami players and media are calling for Alosi to be fired. That seems unlikely considering Ryan’s reported respect for Alosi. He has no history of conduct problems.
We think the act deserves a league suspension, and we suspect that’s what will happen.
