Report: Sal Alosi, Darrelle Revis once got into a fistfight

While the facts of the recent fracas between Diddy and UCLA strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi remain unclear, Alosi hasn’t been free from controversy during his career. And that’s not just a reference to 2010 the Jets tripping scandal for which Alosi took the fall.

TMZ reports that it has obtained a copy of a letter to the Jets from a chiropractor who claimed that Alosi and Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis got into a “fistfight” during the same year as the fateful fall of Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll, who strayed from the field of play and ran into a phalanx of bodies aligned on the other side of the white stripe bordering the gridiron. The letter also claims, per TMZ, that Alosi engaged in a “pattern of abusive behavior and the Jets needed to get him under control.”

TMZ contends that the letter has been sent to Diddy’s camp for use in connection with the looming prosecution arising from a claim that he assaulted Alosi. But it’s hard to see how any of that is relevant to the present case; if Diddy assaulted Alosi (after allegedly threatening to “f–k him up“), it doesn’t matter whether Alosi was being a jerk to Diddy.

It possibly will matter if Alosi was being a jerk to Diddy’s son. Per a separate TMZ report, Diddy’s camp contends that Alosi was bullying Diddy’s son, Justin Combs. If a defense can somehow be fashioned based on provocation by Alosi of Justin Combs, Alosi’s history could potentially become relevant.

  1. Well, he’s a chiropractor, so his credibility immediately gets called into question.

  2. Yeah….um…..medical records are private. How did TMZ get this? That doctor better have an alternate career set up. I don’t care if Alosi is a jerk or “Bullied” the goobers son, you can’t just rummage through his medical records. BTW. His son IS soft, if daddy has to come help him. My father would have kicked me in the keister if I cried to him. Kids are uber soft now-a-days.

  3. Why don’t we publish all the miss deeds of Diddy and compare? Diddy has his PR people very busy. Let’s not forget Diddy was the one who got arrested after the police viewed the video tape.

    Doubtful. Maybe if it’s a liberal female judge.

  6. @catquick…. I guess your father didn’t bother teaching you reading comprehension… Nowhere in this article does it says anything about dudes medical records being released… And if he’s bullying college kids he deserves getting his Burt whooped

  7. How come the kids name isn’t Justin Diddy? And who cares about this anyway? WTH is a Diddy?

  8. Justin Combs decided to skip training and go to a court side game with Ben Stiller and his daddy. If any other player does this they will be treated the same way. This is what happens when money influences a kids participation in football. His kid is small and a back up to a back up. Give the spot on the team to somebody that actually earned it and does not have a rich daddy that fights his battles. In the end Justin Combs looks pretty sad.

    Let’s not forget that it was a Conservative white judge who allowed a Texan teen to slaughter an entire family with his car saying the rich kid merely suffered from “affluenza” and let him go.

  10. ronbno24…my dad did a great job teaching me reading comprehension. It clearly states a letter about his health was received by TMZ. Try again. No, don’t. You’ve embarrassed yourself enough. You must be one of those emotional cripple “Yut’s” I referred to. If he’s bullying a college football player and the kid can’t defend himself the kid should quit. Daddy can’t fix all your troubles for you, You have to “man up’ every once in a while. My father was right. I guess you either didn’t have one or had a real bad one. I don’t get bullied because he taught me to fight my own fights. Sorry to hear you’re made of jelly.

  11. With all the Jets cronies in the NFL HQ, Alosi might find himself running the building’s fitness center. Hopefully his next ‘roid rage is towards Goodell…. I can only dream.

  12. Scanned and saw “TMZ” in the article. That meant there was a 50% chance I was going to skip reading further…and then my eyes simultaneously spotted “Diddy” and the other 50% was taken care of.

  13. Anyone who thinks a grown man bullying a 20 yr old kid is ok with that and blames the kid for not being tough enough to fight him at the 20 yr old is 5-7 is a fool….any dad who worth being called dad would kick the snoot out of any man who tries to harm is son….

  14. How does a kid with a billionaire Dad (at the very least a hundred millionaire) get a full scholarship when he’s a benchwarmer in the first place?

  15. “How does a kid with a billionaire Dad (at the very least a hundred millionaire) get a full scholarship when he’s a benchwarmer in the first place?”
    ________________________

    Because he has a Billionaire Daddy. Google “Rick Neuheisel and Diddy Combs” and you’ll see that “Former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel said Tuesday that musician Sean “Diddy” Combs’ celebrity status led to the Bruins offering his son a scholarship.”

    Diddy’s living vicariously through his son.

  16. Old news, which is why although I thought Combs was in the wrong and I’m hardly a fan of his, let’s not forget who we’re talking about on the other end of this altercation. For some reason, I doubt it went exactly like it was stated during the first few hours of this, especially since UCLA doesn’t want to press charges.

  17. If a coach is bullying a player, the player should quit if he can’t defend himself? Then by that logic, Latrell Sprewell was 100% just in choking out PJ? A coach is not a bully, a coach is a teacher, a coach is a leader, a coach develops those on their team to become better people in the sport and away from the game. A coach can challenge a player to become better, but in no way is a coach there to demean a player.

    There is more to the story to come. Sean Combs should not be at these practices, parents should not be at practices. If there is an issue, the head coach will resolve the problem. Sean Combs crossed a major line. The HC is responsible for the players, and in the case of college athletics is responsible for the players when they are away from home.

  18. The Jets continue to be, as they have for the last 40 years, a laughingstock to the NFL. They are the Washington Generals to the Patriots’ Globetrotters.

  19. The sad thing is that even if Diddy is 100% at fault, his legions of lawyers will get him off. The judge will find in favor of Diddy then go to dinner with him that evening.

  20. Diddy has been pissed for 3 years that his son is not starting. When he finds that his son was sent home by his coach, Diddy completely flipped out, drove to campus and confronted the coach. Whatever the coach may have said to the kid in NO WAY justifies Diddy’s criminal act. I can;t imagine how Alosi’s conduct in previous matters could ever be relevent to the present case.
    Perhaps had Diddy been there and witnessed the alleged “bullying” said act could be used as a, somewhat, provocation defense but the time that elapsed between the coaches actions and the Defendant’s criminal act should prevent such a defense.

  21. ““Former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel said Tuesday that musician Sean “Diddy” Combs’ celebrity status led to the Bruins offering his son a scholarship.”

    I know everyone in the US, especially white males, like to say they earned what they have but we all know the streets of success are paved with nepotism, who you know, and connections.
    All too many positions in the best universities, medical schools, hedge funds, and careers aren’t earned, they are virtually gifted. It is particularly true of the medical profession where doctors control who gets into the schools and get licensed.

    However, my experience indicates that you have to perform once you get there unless your family owns he company. In particular, sports, especially professional sports, is a meritocracy except in the front office. In almost every NFL ownership office you see the son (or new squeeze) of the owner being gifted their position. Is there anywhere in America where nepotism is more evident? None come to mind.

    On the field it is a different story. You need to perform and you need to earn your paycheck. Kraft has his son in ownership but he handed the reins over to Belichick who in turn has Brady. They don’t need to cheat, they just work smarter and harder.

  22. I can’t believe this story is true. How could a strength coach get into a fistfight with a team’s best player and not be fired immediately? Even Rex Ryan can’t be that stupid.

  23. The whole NFL and NCAA is getting too mean. Why can’t everyone be told how special they are and everyone get a trophy like my six year old daughter did when she played soccer? We had a pizza party and everyone was happy. Well, except that team that was really good and would have gotten the trophy if they only gave one, but who cares what they think. This is a kinder and more gentle world now. No room for all the meanies.

  24. “I can’t believe this story is true. How could a strength coach get into a fistfight with a team’s best player and not be fired immediately? Even Rex Ryan can’t be that stupid.”

    How?

    Sometimes the guy higher up the food chain respects the guy after the scuffle and doesn’t want to be the cause of him losing his job. Not every successful person is a jerk who wants anyone and everyone that stands up to them to be punished.

    Good analogy as they both use trick balls.

  26. Gotta love how lenient Goodell is with all the other teams

    Coaches tripping players in the middle of a play? Slap on the wrist…not like disrupting a key play impacts the integrity of the game

    Indy facing allegations of purposefully throwing games to Suck for Luck?

    THAT doesn’t eve. Warrant an investigation

    Fixing games is ok in today’s NFL thanks to Goodell
