It was over 20 years ago, so many football fans may not remember Pete Carroll’s controversial “gesture” way back in 1992. Carroll was the defensive coordinator for the Jets at the time, and they were playing the Miami Dolphins in the second last game of the season. Dolphins kicker Pete Stoyanovich inexplicably missed an extra point with just a couple of minutes left in the game, and Carroll made the infamous choke gesture in response. It was senseless. It was classless.
The Dolphins went on to win the game anyway, and Carroll later apologized for his classlessness, but obviously that wasn’t enough of a sacrifice for the football gods. They wanted more.
And extracted it yesterday at the most inopportune of times for Carroll.
Karma’s a bitch huh Pete?
