Have you ever seen the tackle from the 1954 Cotton Bowl …
In honor, or dishonor of Jets assistant coach and head moron of the week Sal Alosi and his purposeful tripping of an unsuspecting Miami Dolphin player on the sideline … Scared Monkeys brings you the most infamous side line football incidents in history. From the 1954 Cotton Bowl between Rice and Alabama comes the Dicky Maegle – Tommy Lewis tackle play.
The refs ended up giving Rice a TD because of the unsportsmanlike play. The thing about it was that if you watch the play, the Alabama player on the field, #33, had the angle and would have tackled Dicky Maegle of Rice. It was truly one of the most bizarre plays in history and of all things in a nationally televised game like the Cotton Bowl.
If Sowthwest Airlines was around then, it would have been a perfect, “Wanna Get Away” commercial.
UPDATE I: Past YouTube Video of most unsportsmanlike plays of all time. Just a thought, if all-time great and legendary Woody Hayes can lose his job for what he did … the Jets Sal Alosi can certainly suffer the same fate. BTW Jets, what exactly is taking you so long? Are you living up to be the most classless organization in the NFL?
