Rex, Rob Ryan in a minor Nashville scuffle

Getty Images

Among the many Nashville Predators bandwagon fans are former NFL coaches Rex and Rob Ryan, who were smashing the Penguins car on Saturday night while wearing very large yellow hockey jerseys.

They also did a little smashing the next day.

A Twitter account in the name of Cooper Stefaniak posted a pair of videos that show the Ryan twins in a scuffle at a Nashville establishment, apparently on Sunday. The first begins with Rex engaged in some sort of physical altercation with another man (who seems to be roughly the size of Jesse Pinkman, which justifies the photo selection), and Rob intervenes with a left hand to the throat of the non-Ryan combatant. Rob’s hand is pushed away, and the guy returns to pester Rex.

The second video begins with Rex breaking away from the guy, who exits the scene, which appears to end the altercation.

Several websites have posted the videos by saying that it “appears” to be the Ryans. Appears? Surely there aren’t two of that duo.

Currently, Rex is employed by ESPN. The contents of the video don’t seem to be nearly enough to jeopardize that, especially since only Rob is shown laying hands on the unidentified man who may or may not have been the aggressor.

    Is this rock bottom? Maybe for Rex, but I’m pretty sure Rob will fall further.

    Probably a Bills fan wanting a piece of ol’ Rexy.

    Guy must have been trying to eat the last riblet.

    My guess; the guy caught rex staring at his girlfriend’s feet.

    The Ryans don’t have an ounce of class between them, they belong in Buffalo.

  13. biggpackfan says: Jun 5, 2017 7:39 AM

    So I don’t get it, ESPN lays off the likes of Ed Werder, John Clayton and Brit McHenry but bring on a big fat Bozo such as Rex Ryan? I must say it has to be the beginning of the end for that network

  14. TheodoreBabyHandsBustAqua says: Jun 5, 2017 7:40 AM

    Rex: “Hey! You just took a bite out of my Colossal Molten Lava Double Fudge Cake, jerk!”

    Rob: “I was still hungry….sorry.”

    Rex: “NO! THAT WAS MY CAKE! I WANTED ALL OF IT!!!”

    Rob: “You wanna go?”

    How embarrassing!!

    1. The Ryan Brothers, with all the $$$ that they should have in the bank, yet they allow themselves to get involved in a situation like this.

    2. Always cool to be the two grey hairs in a 20-something bar.

    3. Rob Ryan looks like “The Dude” (Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski). “Hey man, watch the beverage!”

    Thanks for the humor to start the day Florio!

    Yet Werder and Clayton are looking for work..😑 That network is a mess

  25. intrafinesse says: Jun 5, 2017 8:57 AM

    As a Jets fan I’m so glad Rex is gone.
    What a clown.

  26. pastabelly says: Jun 5, 2017 9:02 AM

    Seriously, how can anyone criticize the Ryan twins having a little fun? I will give Nashville fans credit. For such a new franchise, they are a fantastic fan base. It’s great for the sport. As far as sports go, the only other sports where I can enjoy games not involving my favorite teams are football and hockey.

  27. eddiea25 says: Jun 5, 2017 9:09 AM

    Next move for the Ryan’s, WWE.

  28. thefirstsmilergrogan says: Jun 5, 2017 9:16 AM

    just a chance for people who don’t like them to chime in. if these were players, this wouldn’t even make the cut (low though it is) to be included here.

  29. annapterp says: Jun 5, 2017 9:20 AM

    The story seems to be some pencil necked geek threw a drink on Rex. What is he supposed to do..nothing? The guy looks like he is being removed from the bar which he’s luck is all that happened to him.

  30. rustytrumbone says: Jun 5, 2017 9:30 AM

    This aggression won’t stand…man

  31. cubancigar10 says: Jun 5, 2017 9:31 AM

    Yes sir Folks!!!

    You get TWO!
    TWO!
    That’s TWO! Morons for one!

  32. nyneal says: Jun 5, 2017 9:39 AM

    Those two morons (the Ryan Brothers) are cut right out of their father’s ribs, so naturally they are jerks, too.

    Well, everyone is on the Predators bandwagon now, cause no one except Penguins fans like Cindy Crosby.

  35. soaringelvis says: Jun 5, 2017 10:19 AM

    Well, as a close friend of the family…Aw, did I just admit that??

  36. richndc says: Jun 5, 2017 10:23 AM

    Well, if either of them learned to throw punches from their dad, Jesse could thrash the two of them with one hand tied behind his back. That sideline punch Buddy threw at Kevin Gilbride has to be one of the most pathetic things I have ever seen. RIP Buddy, but if that is your punch, your image as a tough guy is totally undue.

    Once a buffoon, always a buffoon. No wonder neither of them is coaching in the NFL anymore.

    The only thing worse that having THAT guy at a party is when THAT guy brings his idiot brother.

    Yes, during the Pats rebuild on the fly into a Lockout, after years of success, 3 SBs in 4 years, an undefeated regular season in the cap era, and 2 SBs in the last 3 years while the commissioner and owners try to cheat us, really leaves a bad taste in our mouths.

    LOL!

    What on earth will people like you do if NE forms yet another dynasty in the cap era with another 3 SBs in 4 years?

    Serious question: Will you contemplate offing yourself?

    Leave it to Jets fans to know the highlight of their entire existence as a fan since man landed on the moon and the NFL merger of 1970, was a divisional round playoff win vs NE in 2010 at their weakest point of the BB/Brady Era.

    I mean, it just can’t be made up. It can’t.

    I’d rather have those two sitting right there then on any NFL coaching staff. I don’t watch ESPN so I could care less who they hire.

  51. cosmicconvoy says: Jun 5, 2017 11:50 AM

    That’s definitely the Ryans getting manhandled like their defenses.

    You could say the same about the generations of Red Sox fans who were born, lived, and died between World Series wins.

    Two fat white guys got into a kerfuffle at a bar.

    Nothing to see here.

  56. FinFan68 says: Jun 5, 2017 12:48 PM

    Did Rex “walk over tougher guys than Channing Crowder” to get to the fight?

  57. harrisonhits2 says: Jun 5, 2017 1:52 PM

    Finally something original in all the low hanging fruit type of jokes in this thread !

    ESPN has to be thrilled. Wonder what Clayton and Werder did this weekend?

  59. jamesmcv72 says: Jun 5, 2017 2:39 PM

    My only question…. Was the “establishment” an Applebees?

  60. bencoates57 says: Jun 5, 2017 3:15 PM

    Relax guys. There’s plenty of feet to go around.

  61. maestro1899 says: Jun 5, 2017 3:48 PM

    Love how everyone see the same 10 second video and just assumes the Ryans are at fault.

    What happened before that? Why would two rich guys in their 50s, who could face discipline from ESPN/NFL, start a daytime bar fight with guys in their 20s/30s?

    Obviously there’s more to the story than we know right now.

  62. finfansince68 says: Jun 5, 2017 4:25 PM

    didn’t TMZ report it as “a brawl at a local buffet”? LOL

  63. bullcharger says: Jun 8, 2017 10:43 AM

    When a person is famous, known to have millions of dollars and a wanna be tough guy they are an easy target for provocation, an assault charge and a follow up lawsuit.

    Even if it was justified it was really bad for business to mix it up. I don’t think they were in any danger if they just got up and walked away to talk to the restaurant staff about it. Dumb move.

    It’s not that they are at fault, but they engaged. They are easy targets. Why do it? They have way more to lose then the other guys.
