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.

During the third quarter of the game, Alosi -- on the sidelines wearing Jets raingear and white tennis shoes -- appeared to stick his left knee out and tripped Carroll as the cornerback ran out of bounds on punt coverage. Carroll fell and had to be attended to by medical staff on the Jets sideline, before eventually returning.

Bad enough when the players on the sidelines sometimes get involved in play... but at least a player might actually get in the game at some point.

There is no reason at all that could possibly excuse a coach on the sidelines doing something like that.

There is no reason to punish the Jets for this lone idiot. Yes, he should be fired and banned from ever setting foot on a field ever again but there is no reason to punish the everyone else.
At least his stupidity did not affect the outcome of the game.

I agree. I'm not a Jets fan but Alosi should be fined and fired.

You could also argue that he was guilty of assault. When a player hits another player too hard, it at least is between two competitors that are permitted to be part of the game.

When a coach hits a player like that... it has no place in the game at all since the coach is not an eligible player... so IF the Jets and the NFL don't come down hard on this guy... expect a potential lawsuit for the league and the Jets and possibly consideration of criminal charges against the coach.

I'm not saying it is exactly the same as assaulting a guy on the street... but it honestly isn't a whole lot removed from that.

If they don't come down hard on the guy... then one day another coach is going to see a way to stop a runback TD and will affect the outcome of a game...

Its a class-less act, and could cause serious injury. It's also against the rules, and out of line for anyone on the sidelines to do this.

Plenty of reason to discipline the guy - not sure its worthy of firing...but maybe something that hits him in the wallet would do the trick.

I remember a bowling tournament I was in one of the players was throwing a perfect game. When he came up to the ninth frame a player on the other side threw a towel at his back just as he was getting ready to throw. Naturally the player miss and when the player who threw was ask why he threw the towel he could not explain. He said that it was something that he did on the spur of the moment. I for one have no reason to believe he did it on purpose. Sometimes we do things that can never be explain.

I agree, he should be fired -- banned is probably a bit much... This act in any employment situation would be grounds for dismissal.

I might be willing to go a limited ban - maybe a few years but the NFL really needs to make an example of this idiot.

The New York Jets have suspended their strength and conditioning coach without pay for the rest of the season for tripping a Miami Dolphins player, the team said Monday.
Sal Alosi was also fined $25,000 for sticking his leg out and causing rookie cornerback Nolan Carroll to stumble during Sunday's 10-6 Dolphins victory in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The ironic part in this: he won an award for sportsmanship and fair play both on and off the field during his college career at Hofstra.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

While I personally would have rather seen something a little more harsh, I'll accept it since his actions did not effect the outcome of the game.

Didn't effect the outcome of the game... and the player tripped wasn't injured in a meaningful way. So I think it is fine to fine and suspend the remainder of the season.

IF this same coach does anything like this again, though, then I'd be for firing and perhaps lifetime ban.

I'm willing to give a 2nd chance on a first offense for a guy that otherwise hasn't (to my knowledge) been involved in anything else negative... but now he very publicly should know better.

A more important thing, though... this was barely caught on camera. How many times has something like this happened and NOT been caught? And IF it wasn't caught, how many people would have just thought the Miami player was making it up?
