Robison apologizes to Lang for kick to groin

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?

Robison apologizes to Lang for kick to groin

Dumb move by Robison, although it's nice to see apologized immediately.  Even better move by Lang to have taken everything in stride and accept the apology without making into a massive ordeal.  They got the win, no need to make the incident take away from what the team is accomplishing.

There was a penalty, the statement in the story is incorrect. The ref who's back is to us in the video throws the flag like 1 second after the kick.

He threw the flag.... Somebody didn't watch the game. Way to be an uneducated child running your mouth though. Congrats.

That's a bunch of BULL SH*T! He should have been tossed out of the game and suspended for the rest of the year. These so called PRO'S get away with too much and they need to punish these PRO'S so they start to think about what they are doing.

Gravity helps my foot land on the ground, not upward into someone's groin.

That must be a fine.  I just seems wrong.

Sorry, kicked you in the nuts.  Sorry.  Yea, sure.  Who wants to be kicked in the nuts?  A Squirrel of course.  Ha, I am funny...looking.  Ok, seriously, that is worth 5,000 for sure if not more. I am sure it is not rare, only rare in the fact that TV caught it.

And I think the ref should apologize too for not throwing the flag. Was the ref that blind?
