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---.

how many playoff wins do the Ravens or Pats have the last 2 years.



LOL.  Only a fan with no concept of a Super Bowl would measure the success of a team in just playoff wins and not Super Bowls.  Question...  In the last 15 years the Ravens and Patriots have 4 Super Bowls combined.  How many Super Bowls do the Jets have in the last 40?

Who was the repoter ....oohh a reporter for jet media. Wow what a coincidence. Like i said in my post just another Jet fan Trying too blame anybody but themselves for there own misgivings !!
mdv, I get being upset at Ryan, but for you to then turn around and give excuses and denials for what BB did is being hypocritical and takes away from any argument you may have over Ryans actions.

Wow...who is this Brian clown? Such hate for others.

Rex is getting exactly what he deserves. He's an egomaniac who needs to be put in his place. Promises here and there about winning this and that and now in the beginning of the year he guarantees a Super Bowl victory.

The Ravens didn't want him as their  head coach for just this reason....no ifs, ands, or buts about it. He's a loud mouth and thinks only of himself just like his pathetic old man. Rex's trophy case will be filled with Division Championship trophys but he wil not win a conference championship nor a Super Bowl as long as his mouth overshadows the team.
