You know, I think that these are very different animals. I think that the events of the '54 cotton bowl are more harmless somehow. Those were college kids who were passionate and, somehow, without malice. That guy was an overgrown baby who couldn't stand watching his team getting blown out and the desire to do something about it was overriding. He knew he screwed up and tried to hide behind his coach, much the way that my 2 year old does when he knows he's messed up. "Red? Red? Who on Oith sent that boy out to tackle mah boy???" That's actually funny in a "WTF!?" kind of way.

A member of the coaching staff for a professional organization deliberately interfering with the path of a non-essential player on a change-of-possession special teams play in a "sneaky" manner is, to me, mindless malice. He wasn't thinking about the Sportscenter highlights, he wasn't thinking about what would happen if the Jets returned the punt for a touchdown to the returner's left, he just decided to do something juvenile and dirty in the split second that he had the opportunity.

What do kids have to do with it? As a parent, it's YOUR job to teach your kid. Not the NFL's or TV's job.

Well said, Calico!

Sally Boy should have been permanently relieved of his duties, IMO. It's unsportsmanlike, unprofessional, and an injury could have happened.

Regarding your parents comment...

Judging by some on this forum; I wouldn't be surprised if a TV was the lone source of discipline doled out to their brood. When I was told right from wrong, I had parents to look me in the eye to make sure I understood. When I really misbehaved, I got disciplined - Bensonhurst style.

It's a travesty! It's worse than the holocaust! But seriously, the guy got caught up in emotion and did something stupid. It resulted in....no damage whatsoever.

Fine him, let him apologize and move on.

Seriously, week in and week out we have guys spearing other guys getting into major trouble (real trouble not this pansy crap) out in the real world....it's really not that big of a deal.

If you fire a guy over this....what do you do the next time one of your players is pulled over with a loaded gun, or his posse stabs some guy outside a strip club or he beats a guy and throws him out a window or is accused of sexual assault?

...and guys like Ray Lewis, Michael Vick and Big Ben get large contracts?

What I'm hearing in this thread is that the trainer guy should probably have tripped the player then shot and stabbed him before raping him on the sideline. Then we would give him a pay raise to a couple million instead of talking about firing him.

Ooooooh think about the chillllllldren! We can't have them exposed to a guy tripping someone. Now let's cheer for the guy that was arrested last summer for beating one of his baby mommas....because he's on our team!


P.S. If this is the level of offense you reach for getting booted from the NFL...there would be maybe enough players and coachs left to field 4 teams. Ok, gotta run...Brett Favre is giving his press conference and I'm running low on vicodin and want to text naked pictures of myself to this gal I met at work before my wife gets home.
