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---.

Big F'n Deal

If you want to heckle, you should be man enough to take some backlash.

Unless you're just a half stepper. Kind of like talkin smack to the big kids then running and hiding behind your mother.

Most of us say "F**k" about 100 times a day. Give it a rest NFL.

He doesn't even need to be fined at all.

Trying to look prim and proper by issuing a mammoth fine? What about when they let Vick back in the league ... a sick and deranged waste of life that drown, electrocuted and beat to death hundreds of dogs for fun? Way to sell out on that one NFL. Having one more player with star power was more important that keeping up the integrity of the league.

Every week it is yet another story about this guy and his big mouth.  The NFL will be much better without him.  I can't wait to see him get fired.

"wow - 100 k for dropping an f bomb ?  a little excessive.  to put it in persepctive, rex ryan got fined the same amout for saying the f word that jerry sandusky had to post in bail - something wrong there."

This isn't collegiate athletics, it's the NFL, and more people (and that includes kids) watch NFL games than any other sport in this country.  You're right, what Rex said doesn't equal what Sandusky did to those kids (allegedly........), but I would have set his bail at several million dollars, enusinrg that he'd spend his time in jail prior to his trial.

Still, Rex is a 2 time offender.  He has a problem with his temper.  He openly admitted he was wrong with the finger incident last year, and there he goes again, indicating to me that he wasn't/isn't sorry about last time.  Consider him not different than a player who just got his second DUI.  I think a third offense should get him kicked out of the league.

And that is coming from a long time Jets fan.

Dbunde.  The fan said that Belichick was better than RR.  Where was all the profanity in that.  Because you don't follow sports let me enlighten you to the fact that fans get kicked out of stands for far less 'crimes' than obscene remarks and gestures.  Not but a little over a month ago was a lifelong Browns fan kicked out of the 'stands' for standing to much.  I do agree people don't heckle at the courthouse or the grocery store.  They just occuppy the streets.

Rex Ryan will face large fine, larger than his as

“Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” “Shut the f--- up.” 

Please, please Rex - will you FINALLY Shut the f--- up?  Even Cee-Lo thinks you should Shut the f--- up.

Your fat ass has been writing checks that your team can't cash.  Face it, you are just NOT a good coach.

Season collapse against a juice head QB that is as predictable as you are at spouting off nonsense.

Really Rex, 31 teams in the NFL are asking you to “Shut the f--- up.”
