Don’t go kicking balls over Joey Porter when he’s warming up. He’s liable to wreck your quarterback. It wasn’t enough for Joey to talk shit about Matt Cassel. He wanted the Patriots to know he was for real when he talked about whuppin’ that ass. Apparently the kickers didn’t believe him.
As his Dolphins stretched on their side of midfield, Porter said the Patriots kickers and some coaches walked through the team’s stretching lines. Chris Hanson then began punting the ball from Miami’s end zone over the rows of Miami players.
Joey wasn’t having any of that.
“I’ve been playing in the league for 10 years and I feel like I’ve done some crazy things, but I never did that,” Porter said. “You can’t walk right down the middle of somebody’s stretch and start kicking out of the end zone like we’re not even here, like they had the whole 100 yards. They just didn’t want their 50, they wanted our 50, too.”
“They knew what it was going to do to me,” Porter said. “It was going to get me fired up. I don’t know if it was an attempt to get me thrown out of the game, but I was smart enough to keep my cool. It was just very disrespectful.”
That’s not crazy. That’s just sick. What kind of person, let alone a kicker, would do something fucked up like that? Channing “Snow White” Crowder doesn’t get it either.
“He hates stuff like that. They got him going. Why would they do that? He’s already crazy, and they just poured fuel on it.”
Baring his belly at the opposing team during warmups isn’t provocative. Getting in the way of bullets outside of bars or stomping Levi Jones in a casino isn’t crazy either. Good thing we have Joey Porter to stay cool and make sense of things in this messed up world. Then again what was the guy from “To Catch a Predator” doing on the field anyway? Who was he after?
