Rex Ryan will face large fine

Rex Ryan doesn’t mind talking and he doesn’t mind talking back to the fans who he thinks are disrespecting him. In 2010, he was fined $50,000 by the NFL for shooting fans the finger at a UFC event, and at the time, he said, "It was stupid and inappropriate. I wouldn't accept that type of behavior from one of the coaches or players and it’s unacceptable from me. I apologize to the Jets organization, the National Football League and NFL fans everywhere."

Looks like Ryan didn’t learn his lesson.

As CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman reported last week, Ryan will be fined by the league after he cursed at a fan during halftime of last week’s Jets-Patriots game.

As Ryan walked into the tunnel to exit the field, a fan yelled, “Hey Rex, Belichick is better than you.” Responded Ryan, “Shut the f--- up.” You can see that in this video right here -- obviously watch out for strong language.

As Freeman wrote, “The league despises this kind of behavior,” and it sounds like Ryan is going to face a substantial fine next week. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, that fine will be in the range of $75,000-$100,000.

Once again, Ryan was contrite afterward.

"I obviously made a mistake,” Ryan said. “I was full of emotion and just popped off. Obviously, I know I represent the NFL, I know I represent the Jets, and I know it was a mistake. I apologize for it. It’s who I am sometimes ... I’m about as big a competitor there is. At that time, I was in no mood to hear anything, but I also understand I have to handle that better.

But hey, Ryan wasn’t the only one vulgar one that day. At least he didn’t tell anybody, unlike Patriots coach Bill Belichick (reportedly), to s--- his d---.

Just Rex being Rex, that's all. 

His dad would be proud. He often demonstrated the one-fingered ornithological greeting during his days in Chicago and Philly.

You know why professional sports, specifically the NFL is losing fans? Welll look no further than the exchange between Mr. Ryan, the fan and the podcast by Belichek.

It's disgusting and lacks any decent level of maturity as professionals in ANY area of life to address fellow colleagues, let alone the general public in a fashion these two have done. Our entire family has lost complete interest in the laegue, in most pert due to this behavior. Our last trip uo north to a game, we were appalled at was once a great tail gating environment to what has become a drunk-fest.

Today, we shut the tv off and spent time in the yard. No one missed a beat.

Between the NFL and the NBA, who in their right mind would give a care about ANY of these arrogant idiots.

Get him Goodell, get him! Fine him at least $100,000. Maybe, finally this low-class bonehead will keep his yap shut but I doubt it.  How many dumb statements followed by apologies do we have to take? He should take a page from some true professional coaches like who don't open their yaps every day.

REPORT: RYAN STILL THINKS THE JETS WILL MAKE IT TO THE SUPER BOWL, LOL!



Didn't you know this year the Jets will win their 3rd Super Bowl in a row?  HAHA.  Honestly, how stupid are you to have to be a Jets fan and believe this dribble.

Aw maybe you should get your facts straight, Belichick's conversation was a private conversation which is none of the media's business
Private conversation... seriously??? I could care less about either comment really, aside from it showing that both coaches are very immature.
