Classless … Jets Coaching Staff Sal Alosi Trips Miami Football Player Nolan Carroll Running Down the Sideline … COME ON MAN!

Are you serious … can you say CLASSLESS!

During yesterday’s NFL football game between the NY Jets and the Miami Dolphins, a member of the Jet’s coaching staff intentionally and purposely stuck his leg out and tripped a Miami playerrunning down the sideline on punt coverage. How pathetically rotten and despicable could one be. To make matters worse, the player was injured.  Video here.

Is this what the Jets call swagger? We call it a complete lack of class. This is what it has come to with the Jets after being destroyed by the New England Patriots a week ago 45-3 and losing yesterday to Miami 10-6. All of Jets management should be ashamed of themselves and the individual who did this dastardly act should be fired.

 

This play happened with 2:58 left in the third quarter, when the Dolphins punted to Jets receiver Santonio Holmes(notes). As Holmes took the ball for a short return, cornerback Nolan Carroll(notes) was hurt on the right sideline as he rushed down to cover the play. The replay showed strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi extending his knee just enough to trip Carroll up on the play. Carroll was down for a minute, but returned to play later in the game.

 Jets cioach Sal Alosi – idiot of the week award

Jets coach Sal Alosi later admitted he interfered with Carroll. You made a mistake, really? You don’t think! You not only should be fined, the organization should as well and this coach should be terminated immediately. What is up with all the crap that has been going on with the Jets lately …Brett Favre/Jenn Sterger saga, Mexican reporter Ines Sainz sexual harassment and now this. Maybe it is an organizational issue.

“I made a mistake that showed a total lapse in judgment,” Alosi said in a statement released by the Jets about 2½ hours after the game. “My conduct was inexcusable and unsportsmanlike and does not reflect what this organization stands for.”

If the NFL is going to fine player for hits on QB’s that are nothing more than playing the game, they better fine this fool triple.

Uh-oh: SEIU says it will be a key player in Chicago municipal elections

Tom Balanoff, the president of SEIU Local 1, says his union will be a key player in next year’s Chicago municipal elections.

If Balanoff’s name sounds familiar, it’s because two years ago he was the conduit in the  negotiations between the Barack Obama and Rod Blagojevich camps to fill the Obama Senate seat.

SEIU represents many government workers. When public-sector unions get involved in elections, the taxpayers lose. It’s government lobbying for even more government.

Is there good news? According to WBEZ-FM, Chicago’s NPR affiliate, SEIU plans to spend $ 1 million in the aldermanic races, the first round of which take place in February. But in 2007 it spent twice that. SEIU claimed nine victories that year and it used its strength in a high-profile effort to keep Walmart from expanding in Chicago. Yet SEIU lost that battle.

SEIU plans to stay out of the mayoral contest unless there is a runoff election in April. Since there could be 15 candidates on the ballot, a runoff is verly likely.

Spitzer Says Cuomo is “Dirtiest, Nastiest” Player

In a fascinating interview on CNN, former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D) makes clear he’s not a big fan of Andrew Cuomo (D), who is running for Spitzer’s old job.

Said Spitzer: “The problem that Andrew has is that everybody knows that behind the scenes, he is the dirtiest, nastiest political player out there and that is his reputation from years in Washington. When his father was governor, he was the tough guy. He has brass knuckles and he played hard ball. He has a lot of enemies out there. Nobody’s been willing to stand up to him. When it appeared he was going to win, it was inevitable. If it appears not to be inevitable, things may change.”

“He has a lot of folks, he’s really been on the wrong side of who may stand up and say, wait a minute, he may not want to pretend he plays that game. He does, and he’s worse at it.”

Mural of Israeli NBA player defaced with swastika

From CBS Sacramento:

Sacramento police are investigating the vandalism to a mural of Sacramento Kings’ player Omri Casspi as a hate crime, and the mural’s artist says it has been vandalized before.

Passersby said they were caught off guard when they noticed a swastika had been scratched between the Jewish athlete’s eyes on the mural on 16th Street and R Street. It also appeared as though someone had tried to scratch the symbol away.

“It’s weird to think there are people like that still out there,” said Ravina Bhan.

With no surveillance cameras aimed at the mural, police don’t know when the vandalism took place. The incident is being investigated as a hate crime, even though the swastika was drawn incorrectly.
