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?

Seems like you all are awfully concerned about Lang's nuts. Maybe he shouldn't have tried to flip Robison over when he was on the ground

I like to call the "just saying" the dick clause.  It's always said before something that will draw objection, but is suppose to cut off any response.

Beats a chops block

This stuff happens all the time between linemen. They are always punching, poking, grabbing each others junk. There is a bunch that the camera doesn't catch. They are all dirty.

Tennessee, punch and kicking with a pair of spikes on (or even turf cleats) is a different thing all together.  Im pretty sure if you had the option, you would take the punch all day long.  After all, as a Vol fan you should be getting used to that the past few weeks.  We need to get Montana to schedule a few more games with you guys.

Shut up Football2210, you're "tough guy" take on this is just plain stupid. I'm sorry. The guy apologized and now everything is ok. You don't know what he meant to do, so don't act like it.

Just because Lang accepts his apology does not mean Packers fans should not be upset about the incident. Woodson punching the Saints player on the season opener should have been an ejection, and this should have too. However a kick to the groin is way worse. Gotta love "I am not a dirty player and did not maliciously aim for the groin, just happened to be where it landed." Of course not. What a classless fool. Hope he gets suspended and fined for this garbage.

I love how all the Packer fans freak out at this while their players are puching others. Or do you not remember that?
