NFL Looking Into Video Of Jets’ Ryan Cursing Fan

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The NFL is looking into an Internet video that appears to show New York Jets coach Rex Ryan using an obscenity while angrily responding to a fan after the team’s 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says Monday that the league is aware of the 48-second video, which shows the Jets walking off the field Sunday night. When Ryan appears, someone is heard yelling, “Hey, Rex, Belichick is better than you,” referring to Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Ryan looks up and tells the fan to “shut up” while also using an obscenity.

Ryan was fined $50,000 by the Jets in 2010 after he was caught on a cellphone camera giving the middle finger to a fan during a mixed martial arts event in Florida.

Watch the video. (Warning: Graphic language).

    rex – in addition to whatever fine the nfl levels against you, all the nuns who had you as a student in elementary school have signed a petition. you are to write (or print legibly) “I will not be a sore loser” 5,000 times. there may be other penalties assessed. you’re lucky my 84 year old mom, who is a sports fan didn’t hear you, or she might make a trip to florham park with a bar of brown soap. at least this was a night game, and hopefully not many young kids heard you.
