Dumb. The opposing team isn't allowed to run out of bounds to get away from blockers, right? How would this give the Jets a "competitive advantage"?

A player can run out of bounds.

And it kind of gives the Jets a 12th player. :rolleyes:

Just saying.

However, he can when he is clearly driven out of bounds by two Jets players.

Have a nice day.

If knocked out of bounds by blockers the gunner has to at least make an attempt to return to the field of play dipcrack. The same guy was flagged on the punt that immediately preceded the trip or doing the exact same thing.

The only reason I am pissed at Alosi is because he cost the Jets 15 yards which would have possibly made the difference in game of field position.

oh, so now he was driven out of bounds

way to change it up, bill "we didn't understand the memo" would be proud

have a crappy day

Was he flagged for going out of bounds on that play? No. Then obviously he was driven out of bounds.

Well dingleberry, that he was flagged on one play has nothing to do with the other. Using your logic, maybe Alosi blocked him on that play as well. Plus, when your coach trips him, it is kind of hard to get back on the field. Just sayin'.

The fining system makes no sense to me. Tripping a guy out of bounds - 100k. Sending a pic of your pp - 50K. Allged drunk driving? Nadda. Hit to the head, 50K. Wait! Fine reduced to 40K! Excessive celebration 50K. What is the criteria for these fines? They are all over the place. Sargent Goodell is an idiot. Dude, you are the Commisoner of the NFL, not a supreme court justice, not Dog the Bounty Hunter, not Officer Krupke, not Judge Judy. Geez, this dude is on one money-driven power trip.

OMG - I just heard on the NFL Network that part of the fine was because Westhoff called out the Patriots for doing the same thing.

But no Garby, they arent the darlings of the NFL.

really ?

I heard that as well.....but it was because of protocol, not so much the ratting. Protocol says a team must notify the league of any wrong-doing instead of blurting stuff out to the media. Interesting, since the Jets have not had such issues with this in the past. :)

Personally, I find that fine excessive and honestly, Sal is the fall guy here. You telling me the ST coach does not instruct the underlings to do this? C'mon.

BB - LOL at that video. I missed the tripping though....

LOL at the NFL, "hey let's wait for everyone to forget about the black marked incident we're praying everyone forgets about and, and then when everyones basically forgotten about it, let's hit these guys up with fines so it can resurface again. My God we're ******* geniuses. Roger, Sterger's lawyer on line two again."

He was getting in his way - which is bullsh*t - but there was no tripping. You Jets fans are trippin' - per usual.

Happy New Year!

just because harrison doesn't go down doesn't mean BB didn't try to trip him

why eles would he stick his right leg out after he faces harrison and tries to box him out ?

this is the HC of the NEP* in a playoff game. playoffs !!!!

pats* fans in denial - per usual

:face:

He was flagged on the previous play for doing the exact same thing he was doing on the play he was tripped.

This is like arguing with a mental patient.

I highly doubt Westhoff told him to trip him. The wall, sure...but the trip. Doubt it.

And he never even said the Patriots...he said...

"A number of teams do it," Westhoff said. "There is a pretty good team up north that lines their whole defense up when they do it, so it's something that just kind of happened."
