Who is Sal Alosi
When I saw the sideline trip on Nolan Carroll, I said to myself, who on the Jets sideline is acting like a 5 year old brat? To find out that it was Sal Alosi, I was shocked. The reason for my shock was I had no clue who Sal Alosi was.
Then to find out that he was fined 25K and suspended for the rest of the regular season, I was really confused. Here is the Jets strength and conditioning coach, on the sidelines, being a buffoon and bringing more undue attention to the Jets, as though they didn't have enough of that earlier in the season. How about just firing him. It really says something about a person that will resort to an unsportsmanlike gesture like that. If he goes and pulls a stunt like that, what other stunts has he pulled that he hasn't got caught for. He is the strength and conditioning coach, nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
Image and reputation means a lot in the world of sports. The Jets have been acting like they have a sense of entitlement. I understand the bravado and swagger a football team needs to play a game such as football. But when this swagger and bravado turn into the schoolyard bully, everyone is looking for you to fall. Quit acting like the Raiders of yesteryear. The Raiders were able to act like that because they would back it up and win. The New England Patriots basically beat down the bully and then the Dolphins played, "Made You Flinch", with the bully. The bully is now going to another schoolyard in another city where the kids there really don"t care where you came from or who you beat up.
Thanks Sal for all your help.
