Default Re: Slauson Wants to Apologize to Cushing

I'd be more willing to believe him if he said this within a few days of the incident, not 5 months later. He appealed the fine too, and clearly didn't think it was illegal:

Quote:
"I've heard (from my coaches) that it was a clean block, that's all I know," Slauson said. "If the league wants to tell me differently ... I hope I don't get fined. If I happen to get something, I'll deal with it then."

Replays showed Slauson diving at Cushing's legs. Jets coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that he thought it was a clean hit. Asked if there was an illegal aspect to the hit, Ryan said, "No. I think that's just one of those unfortunate things."

A peel-back block is deemed to be illegal if initiated to an opponent's back or the side, according to the NFL rulebook.
