Woodson doesn't get Hawk's inside joke

HawkPosted by Josh Katzowitz

When Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk apologized for flipping off his teammates on the sideline during Sunday’s win vs. the Rams and claimed it was an inside joke, that made sense. Although he was right to apologize, you can forgive the guy for a little bit of sophomoric humor.

Except nobody seems to know who the inside joke was for, and nobody knows what exactly that joke is.

Hawk declined to name names Sunday after the game, and cornerback Charles Woodson said on the Jim Rome radio show (H/T to Pro Football Talk) that he doesn’t know what Hawk is talking about.

“No, I had not heard about it,” Woodson said. “I don’t know that I’ve ever seen that. From what I heard it was some kind of inside joke but I have no clue. I don’t know who else knew about it either. I guess there were a couple people who knew about it but it caught everybody else off guard. So the joke’s on us I guess.”

It’s a joke that’s turning out to be not so funny for Hawk, who likely will face a fine from the league for his lewd gesture.

This is what Hawk said after the game: “It’s kind of been a running joke with some of my teammates. There was no anger or malice or anything. It was a joke and I kind of got caught up in the emotions of the game. I definitely apologize if any kids or anyone else saw it. I have a daughter myself so I wouldn’t want her doing that. I got excited and got caught up in the game and it was just a bad joke. I definitely won’t do it again.”

That’s three times he mentioned the word “joke,” so even if nobody else knows what he’s talking about, give points to Hawk for his consistency.

Plus, Hawk provides a good lesson for all the would-be flipper-offers. The next time somebody decides to extend his middle finger and then says, “Hey media, that was an inside joke,” he should make sure to let his teammates know beforehand. Otherwise, it’s not going to be nearly as funny. And it’s going to continue to cost the offender plenty of money.

2. He plays for the Green Bay Packers, a team that is so arrogant that it did not even let their fans/part owners take part in the SB ring ceremony. Arrogant Green Bay who got lucky winning the SB last year but acts as if they had a dominating season. They were 10-6.....10-6. They were only one game better than the Seattle Seahawks.  


C'mon dude..........1 game better than the Seattle Seahawks?  The Seahawks ended the season 7-9.  Last time I counted, that equals 3 games better, not 1.

As for the prior post.  Not sure why CBS posted a blank message that I didn't try to send.  Hmm.  Surprised

Try some jounalism.  Honestly, who do you think he was flipping off.  Are you implying he was angry at his teamates ?   Maybe ask somebody in the linebacking core.  Suspect it was somethng like a bet on who gets the 1st sack and he was given no chance or his coach, Greene that said he couldn't get a sack.  Exceptional writing, ask one person, not in the same position and write an article about it.

AJ Hawk is a tool! The inside joke that he was referring to was that he can do something stupid and make a lame excuse and people will let him get away with it because

1. He graduated from Ohio State and the nation is very much enamored with all things Buckeyes. Buckeyes can do no wrong!!!
2. He plays for the Green Bay Packers, a team that is so arrogant that it did not even let their fans/part owners take part in the SB ring ceremony. Arrogant Green Bay who got lucky winning the SB last year but acts as if they had a dominating season. They were 10-6.....10-6. They were only one game better than the Seattle Seahawks.  

3. Hawk is on steroids and we know that steroids rots the brain and makes peole do foolish and violent things that they would not normally do.
4. He was told to do it by Roger Goodell. To deflect any criticism of Sam Bradford. Bradford has the same players and system that he had last year and yet he has gotten worse. How is that possible? Well, if Andrew Luck stays in the draft the Rams should definitely draft Luck..provided that Luck does not win the Heisman. Every Heisman winning player since Barry Sanders has been a dud. Heisman winning QBs have fared much worse.
