Flozell Adams Facing Possible Suspension:

From NYDAILYNEWS.COM

Adams has already been fined once for taking down Giants defensive end Justin Tuck. This time he might lose more than just money.

The Cowboys left tackle is facing the possibility of a suspension for the latest trouble he caused just before halftime of the Giants’ 31-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. The NFL is already reviewing the incident, which was sparked when Adams knocked Tuck down from behind after the final whistle of the half was blown.
 
Adams drew a personal foul penalty on the play, which was automatically declined because it was on the last play of the half. He also drew a quick response from Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka who raced in and confronted Adams, who then grabbed Kiwanuka’s facemask as players from both teams converged.
 
After the game, Tuck called Adams a “coward” and a “dirtbag” for his actions. Adams responded by calling Tuck “a nobody.”
 
The review of the incident was called “routine” by an NFL spokesman, who said in an e-mail that “Any altercation of that nature is always reviewed for possible discipline.” But with Adams, it could prove to be anything but routine due to his growing reputation as one of the dirtiest players in the league. He was fined $12,500 for two separate actions back in the Giants’ Week 2 in Dallas, first when he threw Tuck to the ground and later when he kicked Osi Umenyiora in an attempt to trip him.
 
Tuck tore the labrum in his left shoulder on that play and has been playing with a shoulder harness ever since.
 
If Adams is fined, the league will announce the amount on Friday. If he’s suspended, they would notify the Dallas Cowboys by Tuesday afternoon

 

It’s about damn time

    Flozell Adams is cannot contain himself as a professional and an example must be made for the integrity of the game. Extra-curricular injuries are not good for the game and the Giants already went down that road last year.

    Plus, the fines the NFL have levied against him in the past have been absolutely laughable. Dude signed a $43 million extension in ’08, which averages to a little over half a million dollars a game, and you’re fining him $12,500 for a dirty hit? That’s the equivalent of fining somebody making minimum wage $7.25 on a week’s paycheck–2.5% of weekly pay. If you want financial penalties to have any effect, you have to make them noticeable sums of money, Gooddell.

    I’d love to see this dirtbag get suspended. I remember Leonard Davis playing right tackle–for a 6-10 Cardinals team that couldn’t pass-protect to save their lives. Let’s see that again for the Cowboys in December!
