Which was the better kick?

While hosting the Antonio Brown show this past week, I asked him what kind of reception he expects in Cleveland this weekend after his accidental kick of Browns punter Spencer Lanning in their first meeting this season.

Brown replied that he expected the fans to give him the usual business he gets when he's there - plenty of boos and other kinds of heckling.

But it got me to thinking about other great athletes who have accidentally kicked an opponent.

Which one of these is more egregious to you:

or this

Brown. All the way. The Detroit player was kind of caught up in traffic and had just leapt over another defender, so maybe he couldn't have seen it coming. Brown's kick is just straight up and hilarious. Brown has given me no cause to think he's dirty or spiteful, so he certainly has the benefit of the doubt with me that it was unintentional, but if you watch the film it looks completley intentional. And again, hilarious.

Great find, Dale!

I vote for Billy Sims. That one looks like it was choreographed by Yuen Woo-Ping (of The Matrix fame), long before that sort of thing was cool.

Both are pretty awesome though.

Yeah I agree with 8:31 Anon. I doubt it was intentional but it was like he thought. Well, I'm not going to make it over this dude so I might as well kick the crap out of him.

it's pretty damn funny
