Mark Sanchez has purchased 500 hot dogs, 500 hamburgers, buns and rolls through A&P to donate to the Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown.

I didnt know A&P still existed

Because it's about setting precedents. If it's ok for Sanchez then the next thing you know the whole team will be stuffing their face all game. Successful businesses set strict standards for how they present themselves.

Football is a tiring sport. Sometimes you need to eat to maintain a certain level of energy. I'm actually shocked that more people aren't seen eating on the sidelines

How about a protein bar, what kind of nourishment is there in a hotdog?

I think the concern is it kind of looked like he was showing up the Raiders by eating a hot dog at the end of the game when it was basically won. Don't really think it was a huge deal either though.

It's just unprofessional. I mean it's not a huge deal but, it still doesnt look good. I've had teammates stuff their face on the sideline back in the day before, it just makes them and the rest of team look bad. I'm sure those that have played, would understand it better than those that havent played.

Unprofessional? Okay, but this isn't an office. Drinking Gatorade and hitting people isn't professional either. This is a different environment. Doesn't matter if you have played or not played, I understand the connotation, but it isn't this big of a deal.

Professional in the sense...that the NFL is a business, in itself. Gatorade drinking and hitting is a part of their business. Scoffing down hot dogs on the side lines is not. Eating on the sidelines is a big no no. That's something you learn and adhere to in flag football. I agree it's not really a big deal...but, it's bush league and it just doesnt look good.

The thing that is going under the radar is that the West Coast in just 1 week could be possibly draining and since NYJ had to get back on the plane for their game next week vs Miami at NY, maybe Sanchez thought he could sneak one up before the long trip home. For a rookie, a trip from 1 part of the country to the other could be a new experience and possibly one that can drain a player.
(I dont know if he experienced that jetlag back in USC)

Sanchez wasn't even gloating about eating a hot dog, he tried to finish it as fast as possible but sadly for him, when your the face of the team cameras will be on you nonstop 24/7.

But regardless, kudos to him for making the donation.

see here's the problem though. Who made that ok? what if other people have been eating hot dogs on the sidelines before and it was nothing new. Then it wouldnt have been a big deal, even though by your standards it is still unprofessional.

I think its funny how touchdown celebrations and taunting are accepted by the media but hot dog eating is not?

ps. energy bars taste like sh**

Oh come on. Most players dont even drink water anymore, it's all gatorade. We're talking about junk food on the sidelines. I know it sounds silly but, it's just not the place.

Or why he had to apoligize for it, I mean, seriously? I get that it's not "football etiquite" or whatever you wanna call it, but if you can rip a guys head off on the field, I find it a bit ironic that it's "out of place" to eat a hotdog briefly on the sideline.

how is a qb putting a weiner in his mouth during a game not a big story? but it is a great move donating food to a soup kitchen. almost makes me forgive him for that 5 interception performance against the bills.

I understand both sides of it. Sometimes a guy just needs to eat something during a game. Maybe a hotdog was the first thing that was handy and sounded good. But it could also be seen as little disrespectful to the other team, if you are beating them so easily you have time to grab some food.

I bet a fan threw it at him so he just decided to eat it instead of allowing such horrible littering to take place.

I think players should be able to smoke on the field during games. It would make it more interesting.Celebrate a sack with a nice cigar.

Also the home team should have a nice catered buffet on the sideline and the away team gets nothing.

LizardState
10-29-2009, 01:40 PM
Did he draw a fine from the team for it, is it against NFL rules to eat on the sideline?

The fine + what he overpaid for the dog to the vendor makes it damn expensive snack.

The old punter for the Vikings used to eat a Snickers bar every game on the sidelines. I remember because he would keep it in the unworn cleats that went on his kicking foot.

First off there is zero nourishment in a hotdog. So basically you're stuffing your face for no other reason but that you can. Have an energy drink if you need a boost. Seems sort of weak for a rookie, especially one that has had a few bad weeks. I wouldnt want the attention. If it's no big deal why did he go out and buy all the dogs for charity?

so you have never eaten a hot dog? its delicious. thats why you eat it.


the thing is that it shouldnt be a big deal. but it is, for no reason. so he has to go out and justify himself.

Obviously its not the optimum for a player, but come on. its a hotdog.

WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT HERE? ABOUT A TURKEY? WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A HOTDOG MAN, WE'RE TALKING BOUT A HOTDOG

seriously its being treated as if he flipped off the fans and told them he had sex with their moms

Oh no, zero nutrition? He's got to be the first football player to eat soemthing with zero nutrition, what a huge loser!!! He should be suspended.



. So basically you're stuffing your face for no other reason but that you can.

Or maybe it was the reason he stated, he wasn't feeling good before hand, hadn't ate, by the time he felt he could stomach something a hotdog may of been the best option. If your starving hungry and hadn't eaten that day you trying to tell me a little ass powerbar is going to be enough ?


Have an energy drink if you need a boost. Seems sort of weak for a rookie, especially one that has had a few bad weeks.


Again, he said he didn't eat prior to the game, so you wanted him to drink an energy drink, for a boost? Have you ever played football before? Also, What does him having a few bad weeks prior have anything at all to do with? I really fail to see how that's even a little bit relevant, or how that's "weak for a rookie"



Look we get the whole, "it's not football etiquite" or whatever, it's not like he had his feet kicked up leaning back munching on it, he apoligized after, end of story. You guys are acting like he spit in someones face, or mooned a fan on the way out. If there was something that wrong with what he did he would be fined for it.


Also for all we know Rex Ryan made him donate those hot dogs, we don't even know the whole story behind that. It's just funny to see some guys in this thread making it seem like he committed a crime.

To me it's not a big deal i just think it probably isnt something teams condone, if it was you'd see it done more often. Yeah i think its inappropriate but i admit it isnt a big deal. I played for a lot of coaches over the years and none would tolerate that so maybe that's my frame of mind on it.
