Since I’ve assumed all of you have finished your lunch today -- apologies to those in the Pacific Time Zone -- let’s go back to the videotape (thanks to the magic of Sorting the Sunday Pile) to see what transpired Sunday between Vikings defensive end Brian Robison and Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang.

In effect, let’s watch Robison kick Lang in the nuts again.


OK, now that we’ve done that, here’s the aftermath of that kick to the groin, which weirdly did not draw a penalty (though likely will draw a fine).

Lang awesomely tweeted Sunday night, “Glad to report my genitalia are in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery!” And on Monday, Robison apologized on Twitter: “My apologies to @tjlang70 , my team, my fans and the @nfl . I am not a dirty player and did not maliciously aim for the groin, just happened to be where it landed.”

Responded Lang: “All joking aside, I think @Brian_Robison is a heck of a player.. Just caught up in the emotion of the game.. apology accepted.”

Wonderful. But now I have a question: which is worse: Robison’s foot to the groin or LeSean McCoy’s punch to the stomach?

Come on, getting kicked in the vagina isn't that bad.

I am a Packer fan obviously.  Apology accepted, im cool with that.  I'd rather get kicked in the nuts than be on the bottom of a pile after a fumble, guaranteed.

What the league needs to do is  find a way to penalize the team committing penalties on extra points properly.  15 yards added to a kickoff means NOTHING.  How long till we see a kicker mashed on an extra point and taken out of the game with broken leg because the resulting penalty doesn't really affect field position on the ensuing possession???

The ideal penalty would be "give one, get one."  The difference is that when Lang kicks Robison, he gets to have the Tosh.0 cameras around. :)

Vikings fans really should take some positives out of this game Ponder showed a glimpse of what may be to come. Played hard and took his hits. If he continues to improve he could be scary good. Blaming the refs is a tired excuse. Don't even bother with it.
 
With that said this little video CBS put up doesn't quite show the whole clip. I agree that Lang bumped him a little bit, but Robinscum or whatever his name is gave a little pump fake before the full extension, so saying he didn't mean to hit him there was a bit insincere, but who cares right? I think the last time I debated someone getting kicked in the Nards was circa 1988. Hopefully the next time is another 20 plus years away.

It doesn't really matter what is said about the Packers. they are undoubtedly the best team in the NFL and I can't see anyone beating them this year. So you can complain about the refs and so on, but when it comes down to it, you can't beat the Packers.

Packers were getting away with holding all day long and the frustration was just building.
Not to mention all the offensive pass interference the refs kind of forgot to call on the Vikings.  Saved Ponder another 5 or 6 interceptions. Wink
