Brian Baldinger's somewhat shocking admission

Been waiting several days for a window to pass along this story out. No need for analysis here….the words alone tell it all. Take a look at what FOX’s Brian Baldinger, who played for the Cowboys, Colts and Eagles between 1982-1993, said in an interview with 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia a little while back (thank you to SportsRadioInterviews.com for the transcript):

On LaRon Landry’s comments to DeSean Jackson that he was going to ‘put him to sleep’ again, the spitting incident involving Landry and  Mike McGlynn, and what’s considered out of bounds amongst NFL players:

“No, I think spitting is….I’ve broken a guy’s ankle on purpose before and put him out for the season. That was just pay back, and that’s all legal, and that’s all fair game when somebody tries to put you out. You go back and you devise a game plan to put Eric Swann out for the season. That was fun and that was legal. But the spitting part, that’s probably the lowest thing you can do in this league. I’ve never had it done to me, and I would never do it to somebody. No spitting.”

Going back to his previous comment about how he intentionally tried to break Swann’s ankle:

“Yes, yeah. Well he tried to put me out during the first game of the season, and my knee has never been the same. So all I thought about the entire game was to make sure he was carried off the field”

On if he had any other encounters with Swann since breaking his ankle – either on the field or since both retired:

“No, because it was so well crafted that you couldn’t really see my intent. It was just a legal chop-block, but I made sure to work with the center and the tackle to make sure the high-low was in effect. I had talked about it and actually had a game-plan for it, and I’m actually pretty proud of it because he was a dirtiest player that ever played the game. I said it was all fair game. I actually got compliments from a lot of players around the league that thought he was the dirtiest player as well. “

Brian Baldinger's somewhat shocking admission

Isn't the same Brian Baldinger who had three consecutive penalties called on him when Steve Pelluer was the Boys QB and somehow kept on getting a first down play after play with Herschel in the backfield; think it was vs. the Giants.  Can remember Summerall and Madden's disbelief.
