Classless kick by Robison connects with Lang's 'sweet spot'

Green Bay Packers guard T.J. Lang is not happy with Brian Robison.

He has a right to be angry.

Robison was guilty of a classless move in Sunday’s game at the Metrodome as the Minnesota Vikings defensive end kicked Lang in the groin, a stupid act that predictably drew a 15-yard penalty.

We’re on the field, we hate each other,” Robison said, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “It’s one of those things that we get after it, it gets chippy. There’s some talking going on. There’s some pushing going on. That’s kind of the way you want it sometimes.”

Then, of course, there was the kick Robison made in the second quarter, an act that will likely bring with it a fine from the NFL.

“It was in the sweet spot,” Lang said. “In my opinion, it was a pretty cowardly move. I didn’t do anything dirty to the guy. I don’t know what he was upset about. He decided to kick me right in the groin. You never want to see that in a football game. I’m just proud of the way I responded. I didn’t throw any punches. It was really hard for me to keep my cool.”

Robison’s story suggested there was something Lang got away with initially. Whatever the case, a kick to the mid-section just doesn’t have a place in the game.

“As usual, they always catch the second guy,” Robison said.
