Rex Ryan calls foot video “a personal matter”

Rex Ryan

The Jets had issued a statement regarding the Deadspin report unearthing foot-fetish videos that appear to star the wife of Jets coach Rex Ryan.  The coach had not personally addressed the situation.

He now has.

In a conference call with the Chicago media, Ryan said (via Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune), “I know you need to ask, it’s a personal matter.”

Though we’re surprised by Rex’s ability (so far) to stick to the Tannenbaum-crafted talking points, is it a personal matter when very private videos have been uploaded to a very public website?

We’re not so sure that it is, but we don’t know what else Ryan or anyone else would have or could have or should have said.

And we have to give him credit for not blaming it all on Sal Alosi.

    …and now we know why he traded for Braylon Edwards… Post practice barefoot racing!!!

    Please take this story back and make me forget it. I have too many visuals happening that I am not enjoying at all… WOW.

  3. grpatriot says: Dec 22, 2010 11:14 AM

    Did he mean” it’s a matter of my privates???”

  4. tv426 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:15 AM

    None of the videos show anything remotely inappropriate – just a woman sitting around in bare feet. Big deal! This is a non-story – and I hate the damn Jets!

    And, she does have pretty nice feet!

    In one of the weirdest seasons I have ever experience, this doesn’t even seem that strange.

  6. mountaindont says: Dec 22, 2010 11:16 AM

    I wonder why Rex didn`t list his bra size on the footfetish website ? Maybe his wife would have been jealous :)

  7. jdandcoke says: Dec 22, 2010 11:17 AM

    its personal? memo to rex: “personal” matters shouldnt be posted on the internet.

  8. tuna7451 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:17 AM

    I wonder when the cross-dresser vids of Mark Sanchez, and Tony Romo will come out? As far as abny foot fetish vids are concerned, well who cares? Are there lots of foot fetish followers in the NFL? And how about that name – Woody Johnson. Think about that one for a minute. Woody? Johnson? Hummm? Just saying.

  9. donovanmcflabb says: Dec 22, 2010 11:18 AM

    I know of no one who posts anything on youtube who wishes the substance of the post to remain a personal matter. The very essence of youtube is to make things everyone’s “matter”.

  10. pooflingingmonkey says: Dec 22, 2010 11:18 AM

    Who needs Weight Watchers (besides Rex, that is) now that we all have a visual that will curb our appetites for years?

  11. djnighttrain says: Dec 22, 2010 11:19 AM

    This is way too funny! Thanks Rex! I am becoming a fan more everyday.

  12. madsqgrdn says: Dec 22, 2010 11:19 AM

    As another man whose wife is much more attractive than he is, good for REX. Making your wife feel sexy and special is one of the number one goals fellas.
    If you guys spent more time making your wives feel sexy…rather than obsessing over a child’s game like football, maybe the divorce rate would be much better than it is.
    I just gained a lot more respect for him..Don’t worry about the repercussions..do what you feel and what brings joy to the people you love. No one has the right to judge anything..all you nerds should get back to discussing who the MVP should be and leave the task of pleasing your wife to the milkman…..

  13. 1byrd says: Dec 22, 2010 11:21 AM

    It might be more constructive to concentrate on the foot of the Jets’ place kicker…..

  14. CT Pats Fan says: Dec 22, 2010 11:22 AM

    Yeah, it is a personal matter, and the fact that it’s a public embarrassment doesn’t change that. He neither broke any laws, nor hurt anyone.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s funny to laugh at, but probably best saved for TMZ or a gossip column, not PFT.

  15. blackqbwhiterb says: Dec 22, 2010 11:25 AM

    Washington Redskins no longer have exclusive rights to the name, “Sexy Rexy”………..Freak…………

  16. voiceareason says: Dec 22, 2010 11:25 AM

    Yes, please respect Rex’s privacy. This is between him, his wife, everyone that has viewed the videos on youtube, everyone that has viewed the profile on the dating site, and everyone that has viewed the profile on the swinger’s site.

    The rest of you need to mind your own business.

  17. joebuckiscreepy says: Dec 22, 2010 11:26 AM

    “Excuse me, ma’am. Can I help you with anything? Are you having car trouble? Is it alright if I touch your feet again?” hahahahahahahahaha.

    Everyone has a right to privacy, but when you post videos very publicly and then take a very public job where you constantly draw attention to yourself, someone is going to eventually recognize your voice and your wife’s face/feet on a foot fetish video and you will have been asking for it.

  18. JSpicoli says: Dec 22, 2010 11:26 AM

    Is his wife some sort of foot-porn star, or are they videos they shot together in private?

    So not a good image.

  19. brooklynsjetfan says: Dec 22, 2010 11:27 AM

    Let it be you sick media attention whores. Who the hell cares?? I never met Rex, but even if he is a pervert, or a bad guy (which I’m sure anyone in this message board would love to hang out with him and have a few beers because he is awesome), why does that matter? All he’s done was give us Jet fans some hope of finally winning a championship. That’s we we are all so quick to defend him. He brought life to a team that was dead.
    We love you Rex, keep it up.
    Signed, the NYJ fanbase

  20. jaguarrule says: Dec 22, 2010 11:28 AM

    Newsflash for Rex and his wife “Happy Feet.” When you post multiple videos of something on YouTube it is no longer a “personal matter.”

  21. raythestabber says: Dec 22, 2010 11:29 AM

    HOW EMBARRASSING!!! That ranks right up there with stabbing two guys to death and getting your boys to take the fall

  22. bradyisgod says: Dec 22, 2010 11:30 AM

    If you haven’t seen your own feet in years it would make since to be infatuated with your wive’s.

  23. robzar says: Dec 22, 2010 11:31 AM

    you put your wife’s foot in, you take your wife’s foot out, you put your wife’s foot in and you shake it all about, you do the sexy Rexy and you turn yourself around…thats what its all about!

  24. ninjapleazee says: Dec 22, 2010 11:32 AM

  25. benjaminbreeg11 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:32 AM

    He’d probably prefer to talk about tripgate.

  26. shastacornell says: Dec 22, 2010 11:32 AM

    ugh! it stopped being personal when they decided to load the videos onto youtube for public consumption…

    if i remember correctly they have two sons – what do you think those boys are hearing about today? just, yuk!

  27. jpmelon says: Dec 22, 2010 11:32 AM

    He’s right, it is a private matter……..just up until he uploaded it onto the internet. Now the Jets players won’t take him seriously……..so, wait, I guess that makes it a public issue now.

  28. jamaltimore says: Dec 22, 2010 11:33 AM

    Makes Perfect sense to me! I guess when the guy hasn’t seen his junk in over 20 years and his wife is too old to curl 100 pounds of flab there’s nothing left to look at but feet!!!

  29. slippyal2 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:35 AM

    Fans are going to give him so much crap, oppossing fans are going to have pictures of feet to distract him

  30. JSpicoli says: Dec 22, 2010 11:35 AM

    Nevermind, question answered. What a couple weirdos.

  31. recblr says: Dec 22, 2010 11:38 AM

    How can we blame the Patriots, Goodall must look in to it.

  32. pukey60 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:40 AM

    weeeeee…this is getting better by the moment. Does anyone doubt that there well be a lot more coming out on this guy now that the flood gates are open? What an embarrassment for the Jet team, owner, their loyal fans and the league.

    Bye Bye Rex. Maybe bro Rob will sign you as Def Coor. when he gets the ill fated job in Cleveland. If not, there’s always the Raiders.

  33. pukey60 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:41 AM

    oh one more thing. Maybe he could blame it on the Patriots.

    First, BrINT Favre shares pixs of his junk, now Ryan’s wife’s feet. Is it the drinking water in the Jets facility that makes these people think anybody (other than themselves) wants to view this stuff?

  36. meattuperello says: Dec 22, 2010 11:45 AM

    gotta love the nude pictures, this is funny

  37. cromags says: Dec 22, 2010 11:47 AM

    Who calls more attention to themselves than Rex Ryan and the Jets?

    You’ve been blowing hot air at us for the last 2 years about how freakin’ great you and your team are, but now you appeal to privacy?

    Once again, the Jets talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk.

  38. davenuss says: Dec 22, 2010 11:47 AM

    Who cares, really? Does this impact the Jets preparation for the Bears and Sunday? No.

  39. wte1 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:47 AM

    Jets play at Chicago this weekend.

    Bears fans should repeatedly chant

    F-E-E-T!

    Feet!

    Feet!

    Feet!

  40. dienavinjohnson says: Dec 22, 2010 11:49 AM

    I am praying for the Jets to come to Foxborough for the playoffs. I need to find out if that banner tow guy that flew over the stadium back in the early 90s with the “give us a peek Zeke” sign will tow a “TICKLE MY FEET REX” sign.

    Also, 30 posts and nobody has made a “Rex should be working for the Patriots with his video taping ability” comment. You guys are slipping!

  41. bluvayner says: Dec 22, 2010 11:50 AM

    Rex said that it’s a private matter… between Sal Alosi and his family.

    ……and it’s only a matter of time before the Rex Ryan bondage videos surface. Yuk!

  42. iamthefootballjerk says: Dec 22, 2010 11:52 AM

    Dear Idiots that state this is not a big deal and not football related, let me clarify.

    Rex Ryan is a HEAD COACH of a very high profile NFL franchise. He is supposed to be the front man for the club. That makes it football related.

    Secondly, since he represents the club that has fans of ALL ages, he is expected to uphold a certain standard, or at lease keep this private. He and his Wife chose to make this public, immediately making it a big deal.

    Whether you consider his sexual preferences normal or odd are completely inconsequential.

  43. cubEbear54 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:53 AM

    “A personal matter” Rex? Seriously? No big deal shooting some vids and swinging with other couples if that’s how you get your freak on. Hell, I’m no prude, but I don’t post on youtube and join alt-lifestyle websites then wish to keep it quiet. Foolish little man…

    Keep the jokes comming PFT’ers! You can’t make this stuff up!! :-)

  44. pastabelly says: Dec 22, 2010 11:54 AM

    If Marv Albert was able to make it through his sexual deviencies, anyone can. Marv was way over the top. YES and it Counts!!!!!

  45. mike83ri says: Dec 22, 2010 11:56 AM

    I don’t know why this is a big deal. That team up north does this kind of thing all the time.

  46. harrisonhits2 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:57 AM

    “And we have to give him credit for not blaming it all on Sal Alosi.”

    Wait a minute, we all know it was the Patriots’ fault. Rex knew he never should have opened that Christmas gift last year from Belichick that had the video camera in it ROFL

  47. flyerscup2010 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:58 AM

    “Though we’re surprised by Rex’s ability (so far) to stick to the Tannenbaum-crafted talking points, is it a personal matter when very private videos have been uploaded to a very public website?”

    It’s not football related, so it doesn’t matter whether it’s public or private because he doesn’t need to talk about it either way.

  48. molly169 says: Dec 22, 2010 11:59 AM

    Why hasn’t anyone commented on their swinger’s site preferences mentioned on Deadspin? They supposedly like “nipple torture” among other things. Who would want to swing with someone like Rex! How could any athlete respect a guy that looks that bad?

  49. buzmeg says: Dec 22, 2010 11:59 AM

    Can I smell them????

    It’s a good thing she wasn’t showing her a$$.

    Allegedly Rex: “You have a nice a$$. Can I smell it?”

  50. techstar25 says: Dec 22, 2010 12:02 PM

    So, would you say the story has legs?

  51. richm2256 says: Dec 22, 2010 12:02 PM

    OK, as a Patriots fan, and someone who hates obnoxious jerks regardless of which team they work for, I have to say I’ve had my fun with this.

    Seriously folks, anyone who says “what’s the harm?”, “what laws did he break?”, and – my favorite” – “this is his personal life, it’s nobodies business”……. enough.

    As a private citizen, what kinky things YOU may get off on ARE nobodies business. But when you are the face of an NFL franchise, and representing the NFL itself, that’s a different story. Ryan and his wife are in the “public eye”, like it or not. And they’re out there putting their faces and voices on PUBLIC dating/swapping sites like ALT, SLS. and that foot-fetish group. They are PUBLICLY discussing things like her bi-sexuality, threesomes, posting graphic physical details of themselves, and more.

    This can’t be what Woody Johnson wants for the image of his team; having a fat, obnoxious loudmouth who’s team is accused of countless dirty tricks, including tripping a player during the course of a game, and now THIS? Roger Goodell surely doesn’t need these sordid details of the Ryan’s sexual dalliences out there representing a further deterioration of the NFL’s image – is there ANY behavior out there, including MURDER, which gets you tossed out of the NFL forever, by the way????

    Rex Ryan and his wife Michelle are allowed their sexual pecadillos – like each of us – up to the point that they embarrass their employer, which clearly they have. One would have thought that they’d be a bit more discrete and delete these accounts once Rex got this Jets job.

    Woody and Roger are facing no choice but to dismiss Ryan after this latest fiasco.

  52. jameswestphal says: Dec 22, 2010 12:03 PM

    Kind of between him and his wife. Oh yeah, and the millions of people that they posted the videos online for.

  56. blockhead17 says: Dec 22, 2010 12:17 PM

    Funny story….shouldn’t be public, but it’s posted on the internet so it’s certainly not private anymore…..just can’t figure out how this or the finger picture at the mma fight last year have any effect on his coaching abilities or why it would be the concern of his players…..certainly not the first nfl player or coach with some sort of perversion or lack of maturity off the field. Funny we joke about ray lewis and the stabbing incident or oj and his drama, but nobody talks about jim brown and his domestic violence incidents……just sayin…

  57. toe4 says: Dec 22, 2010 12:18 PM

    Rex called it a personal matter, which it is.

    He did not call it a private matter, which it is not.

    It doesn’t stop being a personal matter because it is posted on the internet.

    Rex is not saying “this is between my wife and I” Rex is saying “this is something about my personal life that I am not going to talk about in connection with my job.”

    I don’t care nor do I want to know if my coworker has a foot fetish or has a banana fetish or a taco fetish. If my coworker posts it on the internet I do not want to watch it and talking about it at the water cooler is rude.

    My coworkers interests may not be private they may wish to share it with others. But it is most certainly personal and I don’t want to know about.

    Go do that at home. We work at work.

    There may be an argument that this is “newsworthy” but there is no argument that diving into a man’s legal sexual life is rude. I’m embarrassed for you profootballtalk.com

  58. clinttaurus says: Dec 22, 2010 12:41 PM

    most of the guys involved in the swinger scene look like Rex, so no big surprise there…unfortunately, most of the women look like Rex too…

    Said it from the start, this guy is a blowhard, obese, low-class peasant.

You’re an NFL coach, even if you were an assistant at the time, what are you thinking?? Idiot. No matter what he says in the future, all I will think in my mind is “toe sucker!”

    ————————————————

    You are an idiot. This man is ASKING for people to dive into his sexual life!

    Let’s recap what this is all about:

    An NFL head coach, in the biggest media spotlight in the country, and his wife are posting PUBLIC videos of her flaunting her feet, posing seductively (embarrassingly so), him making sexual comments about her feet, and the two of them describing her graphic physical description along with a description of their sexual iterests ON PUBLIC WIFE SWAPPING BOARDS, without even trying to hide their identities.

    And you think this has no bearing on his professional football career?

    I’d be embarrassed if PFT DIDN’T report on this. Even ESPN has!

    If Bill Belichick has a kinky side to him, I for one am thankful he’s kept it PRIVATE. I don’t want to know if he’s into “nipple torture”.

  69. richm2256 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:19 PM

    Maybe some of you should actually read the article on Deadspin, and actually WATCH the videos, and follow the links to the “swnger’s” websites BEFORE defending Ryan.

    And keep in mind they’re doing very little to hide her/their identities. I mean, for God’s sakes, this woman’s face is well known in New York City, as is the voice of Rex Ryan (he never shuts up, how can you NOT recognize this voice???)

    I think it will make a lot of you rethink your opinions on this. Ryan is an idiot who has truly embarrassed himself, his marriage, his family, the Jets, and the NFL.

  70. jetscheat says: Dec 22, 2010 1:21 PM

    Jet fans are a bunch of idiots but how can you not feel bad for the owner?? Fraternity Rex is an embarrassment to the NFL and ex-president Goodell is letting it happen.

  71. 4sacroc says: Dec 22, 2010 1:21 PM

    The thought of Rex Ryan and anything of a sexual nature elicits just one response:

    “Ew.”

    Or as Ron White so eloquently says ….

    “Things that make you go buhuhuhuhuh…”

  72. rectumnearlykilledem says: Dec 22, 2010 1:22 PM

    Seriously folks, anyone who says “what’s the harm?”, “what laws did he break?”, and – my favorite” – “this is his personal life, it’s nobodies business”……. enough.

    As a private citizen, what kinky things YOU may get off on ARE nobodies business. But when you are the face of an NFL franchise, and representing the NFL itself, that’s a different story. Ryan and his wife are in the “public eye”, like it or not. And they’re out there putting their faces and voices on PUBLIC dating/swapping sites like ALT, SLS. and that foot-fetish group. They are PUBLICLY discussing things like her bi-sexuality, threesomes, posting graphic physical details of themselves, and more.

    This can’t be what Woody Johnson wants for the image of his team; having a fat, obnoxious loudmouth who’s team is accused of countless dirty tricks, including tripping a player during the course of a game, and now THIS? Roger Goodell surely doesn’t need these sordid details of the Ryan’s sexual dalliences out there representing a further deterioration of the NFL’s image – is there ANY behavior out there, including MURDER, which gets you tossed out of the NFL forever, by the way????

    Rex Ryan and his wife Michelle are allowed their sexual pecadillos – like each of us – up to the point that they embarrass their employer, which clearly they have. One would have thought that they’d be a bit more discrete and delete these accounts once Rex got this Jets job.

    ————————————–

    richm2256 is nothing more than a troll that gets off posting “off with his head” comments about Big Ben and Rex. We’re starting to roll our eyes at the mere sight of your screen name, richm, Seriously, since you are on these boards all the time posting how terrible everyone else is, it’s obvious you don’t have a day job. Maybe start watching General Hospital or some other afternoon soap opera. Drama Queens like yourself seem to go for that type of thing.

    Who gives a rat’s azz what Rex and his wife do when he is not working. Really. What about this mortifies you, Richm?? Did Rex not get back to your response to his ad???

    Guess who just lost the locker room…

    Ok, after thinking about it a little more, I still stand by what I said about Rex being a peasant. But damned if he ain’t my kind of peasant. I just can’t get over the balls this guy has to put that stuff out there. Hell, I’m almost impressed with the absolute audacity of it. Now I almost feel jealous that he has an attractive wife that lets him fetish on her feet and have threesomes. Man, what a life.

    If Jets win it all, Michelle Ryan gets honorary toe ring.

    Foot fetishists are weirdos.

    Kev86, Brilliant and I am a Jets fan
    Love the jokes here. In the end this story will have no legs. 1 small article on ESPN and nothing on SI.
    Jets haters think they have something to latch onto and I admit this story makes for great jokes.
    In the end it is not football related and too tawdry for the major news outlets

    If Rex Ryan has made it clear he does not wish to talk about his sex life would it not be sexual harassment to continue asking questions about it?
    ======================
    Not unless the reporters are torturing his nipples and he protests. Apparently though, he won’t.

    Say what chall want to. But i think Michelle is a hot little Time-Fighter. Lookin very good for 47. VERY good. And Rex and his wife seem crazy about each other. Whatever their sexual tastes or fetishes are is their business. But she is HOT. I’d ride that for 4 or 5 hours. I bet Rex does too. Maybe now Playboy will give her an offer. Then we’ll all get see those sexy little ninnies of hers. Hee Hee! What a season………Geaux Saints!

    @wtf_seriously –

    Have you ever taken any Public Relations courses? You are so blinded by your issues against richm2256 that you miss the point. Ryan is an embarrassment to his employer with this. People do care. But more importantly, advertisers and sponsors do. This does cause potential issues for Woody Johnson and marketing his franchise.

    You might not like what richman2256 says, but he is spot on with his analysis here. No amount of your return smack talk can take away from the fact that Woody Johnson (remember from Johnson and Johnson fame?) understands an awful lot about image and perception of his products. Let me tell you, he has to wonder at times exactly what image Ryan is setting for his team.

    Marketing a football team and J&J are very different things, but situations like this will not go over well at the corporate level. You are incredibly niave if you think otherwise.

    In an unrelated story, Rex Ryan is contemplating signing ex-Patriot kicker Tony Franklin who kicks without wearing a shoe on his pretty kicking foot. Ryan noted that a “pretty good team up North apparently has a thing for barefoot, so don’t just pick on me and the Jets”.

    Tickle Me Ryan dolls might be marketable. Just in time for Christmas too.

    There is a pretty good team up north that has foot fetishes

  91. ratbastardshanahandjob says: Dec 22, 2010 5:57 PM

    Cant wait until they say its about a foot short for the 1st down….

    The G-men had the Big Tuna. The Jets a little late but not wanting to be out done, have the Big-Foot….

    It’s not a personal matter insofar as it’s now very public because people found it online.

    It’s not a business or football matter at all though, so he doesn’t really have to talk about it to the sports media if he doesn’t want to.

    I don’t know if the league has some policy against it that could make it a business matter? but still. Finish the Alosi deal investigation. If that goes into oblivion because of this I will totally believe the Goodell bias theories from here on out.

    It’s cool… his wife has a Fat Fetish, so it all works out.
