I was forwarded the YouTube clip of Rex Ryan swearing at a fan Sunday night, just like many of you.
It cracked me up and seemed harmless enough. With this being a family blog and all, it didn’t necessarily seem worth a post.
Now that the NFL is getting involved, it’s time to mention it. Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the NFL “will take a look” at the video.
In the clip, an off-screen fan (presumably of the Patriots) tells Ryan that Bill Belichick is “better than” Rex.
Ryan, on his way back to the locker room, tells the fan to go “shut the front door.” Or something like that.
Apparently, Ryan wasn’t the only coach overheard using salty language. The New York Post snooped a conversation between Belichick and his son Stephen after the game that included this gem:
“Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, suck my d–k,” Belichick said.
The league won’t investigate that comment (of course) because it was just a private comment that a tabloid overheard.
You know, just some wholesome father-son bonding.
