This morning's news reports that Sal Alosi's "devious act not a coincedance". The report stated that he strategically ordered players to form a wall in that specific place. As a result of this new information his suspension has gone from the rest of the season to indefinate.

When it first happened, I thought it was "odd" that those guys were lined up foot to foot on the line.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Da-dum! The plot thickens.....! At least the jerk wasn't actually on the field, and he should consider himself lucky he wasn't knee-capped at the time.....wonder if we'll see some sideline torpedoes next year?

You noticed that too. My military training alerted me when I first seen the video. This morning's news didn't surprise me.

Ok what Mr Strength coach did was bad, he's been punished that's been established. What it got me wondering about though is why was the player in a position like that to get tripped in the first place anyway? I mean the replay shows he's clealy well out of bounds while running up the field. It seems to me it's something that he must've been doing to try to gain some kind of perceived advantage? And the Jets obviously noticed he'd been doing it and therefore lined up their coaches as close to the line as possible to keep him from doing it? I really don't know that's why i'm asking. After all I thought it was against the rules in the first place to go out of bounds and then come back in and try to make a play. Anyway it was ridiculous what happened but i'm just trying to figure out what led up to it.

I thought I saw earlier in the play where the "gunner" had been forced out of bounds by a player on the other team... and at the speed he was running, it took a bit to restore balance and turn himself back into the field of play.

The rule is supposed to be that if you are pushed out of bounds, you have to reasonably try to get back in bounds ASAP. Depending on how fast you are going and how far you are nudged, it can take a bit to get back into the field of play.

I don't have a problem with the people standing outside of the field of play. They are outside the field of play. But they shouldn't be trying to harm a player by tripping or anything like that.

I absolutely agree. I was just wondering how the Jets coaching staff knew he'd be running there. I mean obviously they did or they wouldn't have lined up like that. Was the plan to force him out and make it difficult to run up the sideline? Or was this player running up the sideline on the out of bounds side of things as part of him trying to get an advantage somehow and the Jets saw him doing that and were trying to make it more difficult for him. Once again the tripping was way out of line but obviously something was going on there that led up to it, just wondering if anyone had heard what.

It's hard to say. Supposedly there was some evidence that there was a plan for those people to be lined up where they were... the tripping was supposedly not in the plan, but the lining up was.

I know you will see players get forced out of bounds semi-frequently... and on a kick-return there's probably a limited area where you could expect someone to be running out of bounds on any given play... so that + telling your guys to run the "gunner" out of bounds probably makes it easy to have some people lined up near where he would be forced out of bounds.

I've seen that a lot actually... and as we agree, that's not an issue and it is well within the rules. Take the intentional tripping by that one guy out of the equation, and I can't see anything else wrong with anything else that happened.
