[Quote]While on the sideline with his teammates as the Ravens' kick-coverage team lined up with 4 seconds to play in the game and Baltimore holding a 34-31 lead, Flacco told tight end Dennis Pitta to run onto the field and tackle the San Francisco 49ers' Ted Ginn Jr. if he got into the clear.[/Quote]

That's funny. Trying to get other guys to do his hypothetical dirty work. Sportsmanship means nothing when money is on the line apparently.

Hey I mean win at all costs, right? This might be the smartest thing Flacco has ever thought of.


Edit: except the ref's could have ruled it a TD anyway. Silly Flacco.

Man, that woulda been a hell of a way to end a super bowl. An awarded TD on an unsportsmanlike play.

I just saw this and I'm curious what would have been the repercussions.

Again, he PROBABLY was joking, but what would of happened if this occurred? Didn't a jets coach like five years do something similar to this?

I wonder if it would have been a TD or a 15 yard penalty and a re-kick.

None of you have ever played sports lol.

If there was a mic on the sideline at the end of any intense sports match, you would hear poo like this from even the coaches, sometimes worse.

I would've said the same damn thing.

From NFL.com:


[quote]So what would have happened had Flacco or another Ravens' player left the sideline to make a touchdown-saving tackle of Ginn?

According to the NFL Rule Book's Rule 12, Section 3, Article 3:

"Palpably Unfair Act. A player or substitute shall not interfere with play by any act which is palpably unfair. Penalty:[b] For a palpably unfair act: Offender may be disqualified. The Referee, after consulting his crew, enforces any such distance penalty as they consider equitable and irrespective of any other specified code penalty. The Referee may award a score."[/b][/quote]

Yeah fug it win at all costs. The team that was most serious about winning should have been trying to injure opponents by diving straight at the knees of key players. fug the rules and fug everything else; they should have paid off the staff at their opponents hotel to spike their food with poisons, poisoned their water, etc etc.

It's funny how some of you saying win at all costs are the same ones who say you hate celebrations because they promote individualism and are unsportsmanlike.

I think everyone is aware of this. Point is, it still would have resulted in a TD making whoever did it look like a dumbass.

And I'm not sure I would agree with the Ref awarding a score. Certainly don't agree with the unsportsmanlike act, either.

Of course as a fan without a dog in the fight, I would have LOVED to see this happen.

Pitta probably would have been kicked out of the league though.

[/quote] Certainly a lousy way for a game to end, but the Ravens would have already made the Official's decision an easy one. There wouldn't have been a reason to interfere with the play from the sidelines unless the return man was about to score.

And this proves pocket passers are the biggest pussies on the field along with the kickers. Cam would never think of some crap like that. I hate those types with a passion.

You think that was smart? Wow! Wait till you see Flacco on a toilet seat with the smart crap coming out of his ass.

Yeah, there's some solid logic :rolleyes:

Shame he doesn't have your fan support. Guess he'll have to settle for his Super Bowl ring as consolation.

Reminds me of Luis Suarez in the World Cup vs Ghana. That handball to save a goal and win them again.

He's a total douche for it and it's disrespectful towards the game, the nation of Ghana, and the entire world, but Uruguay won the match...

yeah there have been times when a guy was running down the sideline for a TD and a coach or player on the sideline have stuck their leg out and tripped them
