Guys are getting chippy! First it was Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews and Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Allen Barbre feuding — a situation that involved a cheap shot. Now it’s Green Bay Packers guard T.J. Lang and Seattle Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril feuding — also over a cheap shot.
Lang claims Avril punched him in the groin, which we presume to mean the nuts or that general area. The play happened early in the third quarter. Lang was slow to get up after a pass play and then had some words with Avril.
“It’s part of the game. Obviously that’s not part of the game, but it’s two intense teams going at it,” Lang said. “There’s a lot of talking after the plays, a lot of shoving, pushing. I think it’s probably a sign of frustration on [Avril’s] part. It is what it is. It’s not the first time it’s happened to me. I just don’t know how the ref missed it. He was standing right there. I think that all comes from the way we were kind of finishing after the plays and making sure we weren’t letting them get any hits on our running backs, receivers or quarterback.”
So what did Avril have to say for himself?
He gave the very sort of shithead response you probably expected.
“Did anybody see whatever he’s talking about?” he said. “OK, so in my head, it didn’t happen. I mean, I don’t know what he’s talking about, man. He’s stirring up the pot. I don’t know. He doesn’t like me. I don’t like him. It is what it is.”
We can understand why Avril was frustrated. Not only was his team getting their asses kicked, but he was invisible in this game.
Not that that’s an excuse, but we all know cheap shots are a part of Seattle Seahawks football. That’s how they play, probably more so while they’re being handed their worst ass whooping in five years.
Loved watching the Seahawk defensive players going apeshit on the sideline. They were shellshocked. Couldn’t happen to a nicer team and their piece of shit head coach.
Can’t believe Avril used the old “If a tree falls in the forest…” excuse. He learned everything from Jim Schwartz and refined it under Pete Carroll.
Whats with all this whining shit all of a sudden…..
“Waa…Barbre knocked me on my ass…waa”
“Waa….He punched me in the nuts..waa”
“Waa….He hit me when the game was over..waa”
Take care of your shit like men on the field, not in the media and on twitter.
Can you imagine Packer players complaining to Vince Lombardi about shit like this? He’d probably cut them for not taking care of their business after he was done slapping them upside the head.
News Flash: Yes…They fuck with you, because you let them.
Well, I did not see it and this site did not post it so I assume it is not on film so no one here saw it either. That said, Land previously indicated — in sideways language — that McCarthy is an ass so he is obviously not a liar. I tend to believe it did happen especially because of Avril’s response. That is the kind of obfuscating crap a guilty person spouts.
I do agree that the Seahawks have a high percentage of jerks, led by Sherman and Chancellor.
Now, Mordecai! (Piffle, PF4L, Monty) Your article is a fail not only due to the lack of a video showing the alleged low blow — heck, maybe there is no video of it — but you also included, as if it is a given truth, the alternate history of how Barbre and Matthews were feuding and that Barbre’s hit on Matthews was a low blow.
There was only a one way feud. Matthews whined and whined and threatened to tell someone behind closed doors and Barbre when asked about the hit just explained he did his job. That is not feuding.
I think almost everyone — the refs, the fans, even most Packer fans, slow mo analysts — all agreed the hit was just the opposite of a cheap shot. It was a picture perfect block. Literally could not be improved upon. He hit him in the chest, in the front, protected his ball carrier, de-cleated Matthews, and lifted him from the ground. Literally could not have been a better or more legal block.
So what do you do Mordecai/Monty/PF4L/Piffle? You put it down as accepted fact and part of Packers lore — oh that horrible cheap shot by Barbre back in 2016… that horrible horrible man… who blocked Matthews from the FRONT… hit him BELOW the neckline… and blocked SO HARD that Matthews went flying. How freaking awful. There is a name for that kind of thing: FOOTBALL.
Listen fuckface, the only accepted part of Packers lore any of us give a shit about is those 13 NFL Championships.
Has to suck being you, when the accepted part of Vikings lore is shitting the bed every time your sorry-ass team’s gotten a chance at the brass ring.
Probably the biggest reason you live under the bridge here – trying to bask in the reflected glory of the most legendary franchise in the league.
Seriously Killer, you are just so full of hot air for “team” with a completely empty trophy case. You are such a loser, give it up already. It’s literally becoming pathetic.
