Whining from one of the biggest cheap shot artists there is.. :Blah :roll:



Talk is cheap

Nose tackle Vince Wilfork said on WEEI radio yesterday that leading up to Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, the Patriots saw on film Steelers safety Ryan Clark deliver blows like the one he used to level Wes Welker.

Clark blasted Welker over the middle, leaving his feet to deliver a shoulder to the head, after a Matt Cassel pass had been tipped well out of Welker's reach. Welker left the game with 2:03 left in the third quarter and did not return. Clark was penalized for unnecessary roughness.

"Of course it was a cheap one," Wilfork told the radio station during his contractually obligated appearance. "We've seen it on film all year. He's nothing special. He's nothing special. He deserved that penalty. There are a lot of times they take shots, unnecessary shots on guys.

"If you're going to sit me down and send me to the commissioner's office for me playing in between the whistles you need to sit this guy down. The same thing I got punished for is the same thing he did.

"I've been fined. I've talked to the commissioner about my play. That was unnecessary. We've seen it all the time, leading up to this game; this guy taking shots when nobody is looking, or when it's out of the play, he's taking shots."

What a fat tub of lard he is. Stupid cheating ba$tard...STFU!

Meanwhile, Tomlin just defended Clark's hit on his weekly appearance on Sirius NFL Radio. He said Clark "did nothing wrong, but its today's NFL. We will deal with whatever comes out of it."

As I recall, Clark delivered the hit to Welker's chest not his head and it was with his shoulder not his helmet. That should be a completely legal hit but since it was against the NFL's "special team" it is now a big deal.

Thank God the current NFL rules did not apply against the "Steel Curtain" defense or no one could play because they would all be suspended.

This commish is ruining the NFL. It is a contact sport not soccer. That's why they wear protective equipment.

Seriously, I'm still completely confused.

There is an official NFL rule that you can't leave your feet to tackle? Or that you can't hit a receiver after the ball has been tipped?

:wft

Just an unwritten rule about embarassing the Patriots.

Doesn't Rodney "Cheapshot" Harrison play for them?

Hold on there, soccer IS a contact sport, believe me. I have been concussed, huge gash in my head, broken ribs three different times, and broken my leg playing soccer over 20 years. Then again, maybe that is because I play middle linebacker on defense but soccer has a lot of contact. I think you are referring to baseball or badmitton.

I think there is a rule that you cant leave your feet or 'launch' yourself into the ballcarrier. Im not sure why, a tackle is a tackle. Look at what happened to Landry of the Skins when he didnt 'launch' himself into Brandon Jacobs...he got trucked down.

That is the problem with the rules they are trying to enforce--too subjective. When Troy launches himself over the OL on a run blitz like he frequently does and gets the ball carrier in the backfireld is that a penalty. No I doubt it but he clearly leaves his feet. Now it becomes the refs determining that the hit was too hard. Just ridiculous.

Soccer is a contact sport.

Football is a collision sport.

Football, hockey and rugby are all collision sports. The difference with rugby is that you don't wear as much padding...in fact, hardly any more than you would in soccer, which is a mere contact sport.

But you can't convince me either that you can't take a pretty serious injury in soccer. Try fighting for control of the ball...that's hand-to-hand combat w/o pads.

Wilfork should be the voice of today's NFL...he's a bigger pu$$y than the commissioner.

Torch, for future reference you just post the "embed" code for the video. In front of it put and after it put.

I had to bold that last bracket so it would show up.

IMHO. I think Clark should have let up and let Welker catch the tipped pass, then run it in for a TD. :Binky :Binky :Binky :Binky :Binky

I watched that Aussie Rules Football league for two seasons when ESPN was young (I guess that means that I'm not!). I never saw any rules at all. Couldn't understand it, but thought the players were very tough.

Haha! Australian Rules has no rules! That's the rules- dig? But as for tough- the Rugby League guys are head & shoulders over the Australian Rules guys.

Little side-bit for you guys- the guy 'freeze framed' with the shock of really bleached blonde hair on Torch's last post is a guy called Nathan Long, who went to school with Chadman for nearly 7 years. We played in the same junior sides. He got buffed, Chadman got....un-buffed...and the result was Nathan had the luck to appear on a highlight reel getting hammered while Chadman nailed highlight reel women...:-)

(Although, pretty sure Nathan might have had a few benefits to a pro football career in that way...)
