NFL says Jets' wall violated rules

Ray Anderson, the NFL’s VP of football operations (and star of the “legal/illegal hits” video from earlier this season) said Wednesday that where the Jets assistants were lined up during Sal Alosi’s tripping play was “improper”.

"There are protocols where players are supposed to be,” Anderson told CBSSports.com's Will Brinson and reporters at the owners' meeting in Dallas on Wednesday. Apparently, their alignment violated playing rules.

If this is the case, it’s somewhat curious that officials did not ask the members of the wall to move. Players and coaches on the sideline are constantly being told to back up during the course of a game.

Agreed.  Also...there must be some way the Jets can spin this in order to put the blame on the New England Patriots.  That seems to be their mantra.

I feel so sorry for people who become so bitter. I hope you can find happiness one day and realize you don't need to be angry to get you point across. I understand that things happen in life to make you this way. My heart goes out to you. All my best

Rex Ryan not knowing about it is just like Ozzie Guillen claiming he didn't know his pitcher was going to hit the guy after someone on the Sox got plunked.  Absolute BS!  Ryan knows everything that goes on.  You can't tell me he had no idea that was happening when it happened less than 30 feet from him.  I think if the NFL looks deeper they'll find that he did know.
Of course he knew. How do you explain a coach seeing his players line up like that with their toes basically on the sideline and not ask them to move?  Or why didn't an assistant coach or any other coach tell them to move before or during the play?

The league isn't going to do much else. They'll probably fine the Jets and maybe even suspend one more person they make a scapegoat for this but it won't be Ryan. No chance.

And the conditioning coach that got busted for doing this is getting compensated for keeping his mouth shut, count on it.  We'll never know, but this guy isn't keeping quiet for free.   The Jets are going to pay this guy off... under the table to to speak. Nobody will know.  There is no way he would keep quiet and lose his job and most likely his career in the NFL when other people knew it was going to happen that get off scott free... not a chance.

Gamesmanship is just a fancy word for cheating. Plain and simple.

While I would not exactly agree with his behavior of late (last 10 years), and yes, he was a maverick most of his career...but would hardly call him a disgrace. In some ways, there would be modern day NFL, as we know it today "without" the likes Al Davis (and some ways Jerry Jones)

According to Steve Tasker, arguably the best special teams player EVER, running out of bounds to avoid a block and gain advantage is a common practice as is setting up a wall in defense...yeah the trip by Alosi was bogus, but its all part of the game!If a player runs out of bounds intentionally he should be automatically out of that play...
