New York Jets suspend Sal Alosi indefinitely for ordering wall - ESPN New York
What a crock. Since when is a strength coach dictating anything? I never thought the 'lineup" was planned. But now that the evidence is in that it was, this had to be an order from the ST coach or higher.
Fair is fair. Dock the Jets a First Round draft pick, and fine the Team $750,000, that they agitated for as punishment just for the filming in the wrong location. What goes around, comes around...
I wonder how much they are paying him to keep his mouth shut.
All one has to do is look at the screen stills to see that Rex Ryan is standing 5 feet to the left and in back of the gauntlet. He didn't "hear" anything when the S+C Assistant "took over" and directed and positioned personnel on the sideline right in front of the HC???????
Who believes this???????????
Before Babelfish's NFL coverup translator:
Roger Jetdell will never allow that to happen to his beloved Jets.
Here's the thing: we are to believe that a strength and conditioning coach decided to do this on his own? Not the special teams coach, not a coordinator, not the head coach - and this "new" information only comes out after all the videos and stills that included their head coach right behind them, and then his denial of being aware of what they were doing?
Or maybe this is a case of Alosi first being thrown under the bus, and just as he was getting up the bus backed up and ran him over again.
Something smells very fishy around ST coach Westhoff ...
And now it is time for
Who ordered the code red (wall formation)?
Strength coach Sal Alosi aka Lt. Jonathan Kendrick
Head coach Rex Ryan aka Col. Nathan R. Jessep
Commissioner Roger Goodell aka Lt. Daniel Kaffee
Rex Ryan cut his guys loose!!!
Goodell: And when it went bad, you cut these guys *loose!* You coerced the doctor...
Capt: Your honor!
Goodell: You doctored the log book!...
Capt: *Darn it, Roger!*
Judge: *Consider yourself in Contempt!*
Goodell: *Coach Rex Ryan, did you order the Code Red?*
Judge: You *don't* have to answer that question!
Rex Ryan: I'll answer the question!
Rex Ryan: You want answers?
Goodell: I think I'm entitled.
Col. Jessep: *You want answers?*
Goodell: *I want the truth!*
Rex Ryan: *You can't handle the truth!*
How much do you wanna bet that Alosi gets a six figure job at Johnson and Johnson.
It's almost always the cover-up that does you in, more so than the actual "crime".
A fish rots from the head.......
To tell you the truth, I find this whole story overblown (I felt that way about Spygate too). But is sure fun watching the Jets squirm and listening to Holier than Thou Jets fans try to explain how this cheating wasn't really cheating.
The story was going away, all they had to do was wait it out, now they bring it out to the front of the news again? The hell
He might not have any choice if enough noise is made about this.
Why is he being suspended for this? I understand suspending him for tripping the guy, but how is telling your players to form a wall out of bounds on the sideline against the rules?
Iām assuming that information would not have led to his indefinite suspension (by his own team no less) unless the wall was created with the purpose he used it for.
It's also fun to read around about this on other team messageboards....lots of hate for the Jets out there.
Its against the rule that specifically states the coaches and substitutes aren't allowed to impede the movement of players. They directly planned to get in his way.
You're supposed to get a 15 yard unsportsmanship penalty for "Palpably unfair acts"
The coaches have a specific area they need to be in, away from the playing field, and saying their lining up (but staying completely within) that area is impeding opposing players is going way too far. The wall was legal as long as it stayed an immobile wall.
The suspension was for tripping, the lengthening of the suspension was for lying about it.
