Jets Don’t Whack Tripper

In a definitive, powerful stance against "coaches randomly deciding to just trip opposing players from the sidelines," the Jets suspended strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi for the rest of the season after his little "incident" in the Jets' loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. They also fined him $25,000, which is probably a rather large chunk of his salary. They did not, however, ask him to resign. We never like to encourage the firing of another human being — being fired is terrible! — but we honestly cannot imagine anything worse an assistant coach could possibly do than essentially attack an opposing player. What does a strength and conditioning coach have to do to be fired these days? Oh, wait: We know exactly what a strength and conditioning coach might do to get fired. Maybe if Alosi would have stabbed Nolan Carroll with a needle.
