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---.

Rex Ryan will face large fine

DBunde The second I stop paying hundreds of dollars for tickets I might care a little bit.  I don't yell out things at a game, but that has nothing at all to do with respect for the players or coaches on the field.  It has everything to do with the respect I have for my fellow adult and children fans.  I really don't feel like it's all that big of a deal for kids to hear curse words at a sporting event.  I'm not their parents though so out of respect I just flat out won't do it.  I'm sorry but if i'm paying 400 bucks on tickets to watch a game.  I feel like I have the right to yell whatever the heck I want towards players if I want to.

It's part of the job.  Don't tell me you think the players were so naive they didn't realize taking some verbal abuse from fans was part of the job.  They are free to quit at anytime if they don't like it.  My job results in getting cursed at and harrassed by complete strangers when I'm not even doing anything that actually effects them.  Do I cry and get all upset?  No because I knew it was part of the job before I signed up so I suck it up and deal with it.

On an unrelated note to above rant.  Let me make sure I understand this correctly. 

"But hey, Ryan wasn’t the only one vulgar one that day. At least he didn’t tell anybody, unlike coach Bill Belichick (reportedly), ."

Did you really just compare something someone actually got on tape for the whole world to hear.  To something that 1 Jets supporter "says" they heard Belichick?  Sorry a Jets fan "reportedly" hearing something bad from a rival team doesn't carry a whole lot of weight for me.

I believe Rex is contrite, but his track record isn't helping.  Rex probably can't help himself, so the Jets need to take care of this before he loses the players.   In the future, he needs to get off the field as quickly as possible and if necessary, someone should shove him in a golf cart and take him away.  If not, an assistant should shove a mouth guard in his pie hole so when does does speak, he sounds like Kenny McCormick of South Park and no one can understand if there is filth coming out of his mouth.
Rex will eventually get it.  If we rewind the tape back to when Bill Belichick was in his third year as a National Football League HC, he was leading the Cleveland Browns to their third consecutive losing season under his watch.  Rex is doing better in his third year and he should just focus on trying to win football games as opposed to being the life of the party.  Keep your head down Rex and keep moving.

This is a by product of having all these stupid fines and making it an equally stupid public discussion. Football fans use to discuss football. Now we dicussus who got fined what amount and this player should have got fined more than him. Thank you Mr. Goodell. I don't agree will all the fines but maybe , just maybe Rex Ryan will think before he speaks. I betting against it but we will see.
