This is breaking news so sit down. You ready? Here goes. Bill Belichick curses.

I know. Crazy talk.

The New York Post has an exclusive in which it claims to have overhead Belichick making an extremely obscene crack about the Jets' defense. The story is beginning to go viral.

Was it vulgar? Sure. But so what. Belichick wasn't saying it to anyone on the Jets. He was saying it to a member of his staff.

And if you don't think every coach in the NFL talks that way, you'd be mistaken. It's common practice. I hear it all the time in practices and locker rooms. The NFL should stand for National Foul (Mouthed) League. Bad language is rampant.

This is a big boy sport. People curse. Who gives a damn?

Bill Belichick's foul mouth

Don't be so naive. Foul language is as much a part of professional sports as the game itself. If you grew up playing sports then you know what I mean. These are the same guys that have been playing and coaching sports their whole lives. My coaches always screamed and cursed and it was a part of the game. Why would we think these guys could change now that they're in the NFL. I don't even like Belichick but I think he made his point against the Jets.

Dags....are you an idiot?

Bill B said it on his sideline to another staffer (or potentially his son depending upon what article you read), and Rex Ryan yes STFU to a Fan in the crowd.

you don't see the difference?  I hope you never end up in the trenches...

You mean ballplayers and coaches in the NFL curse??? Wow...I'm shocked! LOL. Listen, you'll hear every curse word and profanity known to man on a HS football field. You did in my day, and my day was over 40 years ago. Nothing has changed.

Bill Belichick's foul mouth

Everyone's a hypocrite nowadays.  Some little weenie New York Post reporter overhead an obscene remark on the sidelines during a football game!  Who the HECK cares?  We have ultra-violent video games kids play of robbing people, stealing cars, getting bj's from hookers right before blowing their heads off literally, ultra-graphic pornography, labels (acronyms) for every kid that has a problem that used to be called "being stupid."  We have high levels of human trafficking, sexually explicit material on NETWORK TV, children using "foul language" in colloquial conversations, radio shows that talk about "human anatomy" and insinuate sex everyday, high school coaches "cussing" out players, high school players "cussing" out coaches, teenage girls getting pregnant earlier than ever.  Yes, I agree Bill Bellichick should be a "role model" and part of the solution and not the problem.  But this reporter needs to take care of his own, before he starts criticizing what he heard in this "arena."  Every football game from pee wee to pros has had someone, and we are talking adults, fans, coaches, or parents who have used some form of profanity.  Let's correct some of society's more pressing issues, Mr. Super Sleuth Reporter, who has nothing better to do than try to make a "mountain out of a molehill."  Sour grapes, bud, sour grapes.

Bill Belichick's foul mouth

This is the era we live in.  Growing up we read reports of the game that was entirely about the game itself.  Now with the internet, cell phones, and twitter, coaches and players can't fart without someone recording or whinning about it.

Exactly Freeman, and that seems to be the problem facing a lot of pro athletes, both on and off the court. Our technology is so advanced now, that these players can't do anything without being caught. When I reflect back on my days as an amateur athlete, I heard things said every 30 seconds that would make a sailor blush. That has always been the case in sports (especially football), it's just that we have more cameras, microphones, and social media avenues than ever before, and nearly everything gets caught. Fine Rex Ryan for cursing out some fans? Sure. Fine Belichick for making an inappropriate comment to his own coaching staff (for the record I hate this man), that's just gone too far.
