Zach Thomas alleges Alosi was under orders

Former Miami Dolphins LB Zach Thomas believes New York Jets strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was ordered to stand where he did (not stick out his knee) when Alosi kneed Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll on the sideline Sunday.  Thomas forgets the fact that the Jets were allowed to stand where they were.

“They had to be ordered to stand there because they’re foot to foot,” Thomas said. “There’s four of them, side to side — five of them, I mean — on the edge of the coach’s zone. They’re only out there to restrict the space of the gunner, who is Nolan Carroll.

“But there’s more to it because I’m telling you, the only thing [Alosi] did wrong was intentionally put that knee out there. If he just stood there, there would never have been a problem, even if the guy got tripped. But there’s more to this. He was ordered to stand there. No one is foot to foot on the sideline in the coach’s box.”

So let me get this straight, Zach, you have a problem with the way the Jets were standing on the sidelines, even though they were legally where they should be?
