NFL, Jets could fine Rex Ryan for cursing at fan

It was a foul mouthed day at the Jets-Patriots game on Sunday night. First, Bill Belichick said something, um, interesting. Then CBS' Will Brinson found video of Rex Ryan cursing at a fan.

I've been told by the NFL that they are looking into the Ryan video. In fact, an NFL spokesman said just that.

It's very possible Ryan gets fined either by the Jets or the NFL. This could turn into something more than a humorous anecdote. The league could take money away from Ryan.

Warning: explicit language but here is the video.

It's not a guarantee he'll be fined but my guess: he gets fined. The league despises this kind of behavior.

Again, to be clear, no guarantee, but the league and team aren't going to just let this slide without some form of punishment.

This isn't the first time Ryan has reacted poorly to fan heckling. He was fined $50,000 for an obscene gesture.

This fine could be more.

There is no video on the "here is the video" link. This article sucks without a video.

The point isn't whether all kinds of people use obscenities all the time.  The point is that Ryan is paid a lot of money by the Jets and, in addition to his coaching, he is a public face of the team.  They sign his paychecks and if they don't want him directing obscene language at fans at a game then they're going to come down on him.  Some of the posters on here would benefit from getting out of their parent's basement and checking out the way the world works.

Rex stuck his foot in his mouth again? I guess he got tired of his wife's. Foot in mouth

Both comments are hilarious. Shows competitive emotion from both sides and the Rex Ryan video is funny. You heard a lot of fans around the area laughing. Oh my, grown adults using foul language.... what is the world coming to? (insert as much sarcasm as possible).

Not sure I understand the "do you want your kids to grow up to be like Ryan and Belichick?" part. Hmmm....Two head coaches of the NFL, making millions by participating in a sport that they love? Pretty horrible goal. Then again, they do swear, so maybe not. Pssst, don't tell anyone, but junior high, high school and college coaches use foul language too.

I've always thought Rex Ryan was a jerk and an idiot. But watching the video and his excuse on Sportscenter proves it. STOP USING "YOU KNOW"! Proves he's an idiot. He's also a jerk because of his big fat mouth. He's just like his father. USELESS!!

Regarding both Bill's and Rex's comments: How is either of what they said remarkable in any way? Is there anyone among us who hasn't used both expressions on occasion, sometimes in a joking way and sometimes not? Talk about a media circus! When did everyone get sooo sensitive about guyspeak? I'm not even pretending to objective, as  Pats fan, but I think we can all take and dish out stuff like this without getting our panties in a bunch, no?

He cannot put the emotions aside, thats why I think if this team starts to fall apart he is toast because he cant stand to lose and he cannot keep his mouth shut.
So I take it you feel the same way about what Belichek said as well right?

"I'm not a fan of the Jets or Rex Ryan, but give me a break! This is not news."

No, it IS news.  It's this attitude that allows "athletes" of today to get away with acting crappy and being an idiot.  I'm a Jets fan, and I have to say that this is upsetting.  Fans have the right to run their mouths and be idiots, since their ticket monies pay a good portion of the salaries these guys make.

Additionally, is this the kind of standard you want to set for your kids growing up?  "Hey, be like Rex Ryan, or Bill Belechik!!"

I'm betting you don't have kids.
