Default Flacco is a JERK! Asks teammates to cheat on last play of the SB

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...6030--nfl.html

Quote:
NFL Films' "Sound FX" program caught the drama for posterity.

"Are we gonna win this?" Flacco asked Ravens head coach John Harbaugh from the sideline.

"Yeah -- the game's over if we cover this kick," Harbaugh responded.

"We don't make it easy, do we?" Flacco posited.

"No, we don't," Harbaugh said.

"If he starts to break it, go tackle him," Flacco then said to Pitta.

"Really?"

"I don't know ... I mean ... what else can they ... they might be able to give them a touchdown on that? I don't know," Flacco told Pitta.

Flacco, flush with enthusiasm over his new tackling tactic, then went around and tried to get other teammates on his side.

"Hey! If he breaks this ... if he busts it for some reason? Tackle him! Go tackle him," Flacco said to guard Marshal Yanda and center Matt Birk. "I don't know what the rule is on that, but..."

"Why don't you?" Yanda asked.

"I'm going to!"
Real upstanding guy right there!
Definitely MVP caliber ethics.

Seems like a smart play. He was not calling to injure the guy, just to stop him. Non-story.

The SB MVP asking his teammates to come off the bench and flagrantly foul a member of the opposing team--even saying that he himself was going to do it, just for the win. Even contemplating the legality of the action.

Non-story?
Really?

You play to win the game.

Again, he is not talking about injuring someone, just taking a penalty. It's no different than taking a delay of game penalty to allow more room for a punt, or to kill the clock.

And it would have been funny had he done it, then the refs award the 49ers the TD anyway.

If this is directed at me, you're incorrect.
I respect the guy's abilities. He got it done.

This sort of comment (Flacco's, not yours) is deplorable imo.

#1- Was the guy asking for his teammaes to HURT someone? NO. Non-story

#2- just like the 5 Ravens who held like a mo-fro on the safety- if its called, they can't award 2 safeties.

#3- they discussed it on NFL LIve on ESPN- Merril Hoge, the noted raven hater/Steeler lover, said "Its done all the time- everyone talks like this on the sideline" Darrren Sharper backed him up

Non-story. Get off your high moral horse.

Flacco is a moron who doesn't even know the rules.

Quote:
Touchdown Awarded (Palpably Unfair Act)
When Referee determines a palpably unfair act deprived a team of a touchdown. (Example: Player comes off bench and tackles runner apparently en route to touchdown.)
