Exclamation Titans player kicks Dallas player!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was ejected early in the third quarter Sunday after he kicked Dallas center Andre Gurode in the face. Now the tackle expects to be punished, and knows he deserves it.




"I apologize to Andre," Haynesworth said. "What I did was disgusting. It's something that should never happen. I mean, I'm not a dirty player. I don't play dirty. I have respect for the game. What I feel like is I disgraced the game, disgraced my team and disgraced my last name."

Julius Jones had just scored on a 5-yard run, putting Dallas up 20-6 in what wound up as a 45-14 victory. Gurode's helmet came off, and Haynesworth, standing over him, used his right foot to kick Gurode in the head.

Gurode said they hadn't been talking or having any exchanges that led to Haynesworth kicking him twice. He received stitches above his forehead and beneath his eye.
"In all my years of football, this has never happened to me. I've never been kicked in the face like this, and I've never seen anybody kick nobody else in the face," Gurode said.
A flag was thrown, and Haynesworth followed an official toward the Titans' sideline, protesting.

Haynesworth pulled off his helmet and slammed it to the ground, prompting another flag. Referee Jerome Boger disqualified Haynesworth, and the player walked off the field after talking briefly with Titans coach Jeff Fisher.
The coach called Haynesworth's actions unacceptable and promised he would be punished by the Titans even if the NFL disciplines him.
"It's ridiculous to get to that point. Two back-to-back penalties like that, there's no place for it," Fisher said.
Gurode didn't play the rest of the second half.
"This vision was kind of blurry in my left eye," he said. "If it was clear, I would have tried to come back in to play"

Information from ESPN.com's John Clayton and The Associated Press was used in this report.

It was so blatantly malicious...I don't know how you can keep a guy like that on your team. It was 10x worse than what Marcus Vick did against Louisville. The Dallas player needed 30 stitches...there's just no need for it.

Madden & Michaels were just talking about it. That was unnecessary and I agree with cantstop, how can you keep a player on your team that is costing you silly penalities?

Absolutely disgusting.

If I went to work tomorrow and something like that to a coworker, I'd be fired and criminal charges would be filed against me. That's exactly what should happen to this guy........but they'll slap him on the hand for a couple of games and he'll be back making a bazillion dollars. It's not a wonder the thugs in Cincy get away with they do.

this is a huge test for the NFL...and a perfect opportunity for them to make a strong statement in regards to behavior....

Too bad they wont take advantage of the opportunity....

How many downs of Football have you played? It is a very emotional game. A lot worse than this goes on in the bottom of piles, in the trenches, etc. It's easy to say that a player is wrong for doing this, especially w/o having ever been in that situaiton yourself. Haynesworth is a human being who made a mistake...get over it.
