Jets Alosi suspended for season

By Marc A. Greenberg

New York Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum has announced that the Jets have suspended Strength and Conditioning Coach Sal Alosi for the remainder of the season without pay, along with a $25,000 fine, for tripping Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll on Sunday.

“After reviewing the facts and consulting with the league office, we determined that this was the most appropriate discipline.  I have spoken with Sal.  He understands the severity of his actions and has apologized to all parties involved in the incident.  There is no place in the game for this type of behavior and his conduct falls disappointingly short of our expectations for anyone associated with the New York Jets.  I have also reminded all members of the organization with sideline access that it is both a priority and their responsibility to maintain a safe environment.”

In addition, NFL Spokesman Greg Aiello has said that executive V.P. of football operations Ray Anderson will be ”reviewing the issue of sideline protocols from a leaguewide perspective.”  When asked if the Jets will be investigated further, Aiello said “No.”
