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.

Rex RYAN! His name is Rex RYAN not Reed. Other than that mistake I agree with your post.

This coach didn't take it upon himself to commit such a dasterdly deed. I'm sure the truth will come out sooner rather than later.
I'm sure Rex Reed ordered the coach to do it, as well as the 4 players who's toes were almost on the line of the field.Afterall, it's Reeds style. The best way I can describe this soon to be out of work coach:Lowlife.The way he's thrown that assistant coach under the bus is exactly his style, or lackthereof.His much bally-hood team was supposed to have a cakewalk this year to Dallas, at least according to Hard Knocks.When he put out the order to make the coach a 12th player his team had been outscored 53-9. He was desperate and soon he will be unemployed.He's a disgrace to the NFL, like Jerry Jones, Donald Snyder, and Al Davis.
In the words of Ryan & the Jets on Hard Knocks:&@%$!*^& &$@@#!*

"every athlete in every sport does something illegal. its call gamesmanship.."

I disagree with that. I think I get what you're saying, but not every athlete does sometime illegal. Maybe things to get an edge like using a runny nose or talking trash when you know the guy across the line from you just got divorced, but I think most abide by the rules. But when they don't and they do something illegal, it's not called 'gamesmanship', it's called 'doing something illegal'. Most of the guys with class that I've seen on the sidelines show sportsmanship and will reach out to catch a player and help them stop when they're running out of bounds. Some brace up and give a shoulder, but it's meant to stop the guy before he hits the benches behind him. Ok, forming a wall is an interesting strategy, it seems like the wall would kinda serve as a guardrail and keep a player closer to the field of play instead of letting him go further out of bounds and be declared out of the play. Seems like you're asking for trouble putting guys right there where you're tipping your hat that you think a player from the other team might run by. And I see most everyone agrees that throwing the knee was out of line. But I have to think more people knew about this too, and I think if it had been someone else on that wall that lost it for a second and threw a knee or a shoulder or even a clothesline, I think that person would have been the one everyone is talking about, and nobody would know Alosi's name, just like we haven't heard much about those other guys that were one bad decision away from being a pariah. If this idea didn't come from those higher up, it surely should have been noticed by them. Remember where the order to sweep the leg came from? Cool

And if you believe Ryan had no knowledge of this ongoing practice, you also buy that Brett Farve will never play another game.
Coaches orders...if you get caught, it's your a&

The Jets have been caught cheating before and now it was seen by the public. All out in front for all to see. Anything this organization accomplished/accomplishes will have an asterisk next to it until they wipe the slate clean. Yep, NY Asterisk's.

The NFL is sanctioned barbarism.  Would you punish a professional wrestler who was cleared to bring a jack knife into the ring and later that day decided to suplex his boorish next door neighbor?  It was dumb of Alosi but put it in perspective.
