In the wake of Rex Ryan's FootGate situation (which just continues getting awkward), everyone's completely forgotten about TripGate from a couple weeks ago, an actual football-related scandal. Jets conditioning coach Sal Alosi admitted to intentionally tripping a Miami Dolphins player, and was fined $25,000 and suspended without pay for the rest of the season by the team. Now, the NFL has fined the Jets team $100,000 because of the incident. The fine takes into account special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff's public comments accusing other teams of employing similar tactics. So basically, the team got fined the equivalent of two Brett Favre penis photos.
