Assault accusation made against Rex and Rob Ryan

The video of fraternal-twin former NFL coaches Rex and Rob Ryan involved in a Nashville kerfuffle on Sunday apparently has resulted in a former accusation of assault.

Via TMZ, Matthew Havel of Colorado has filed a simple assault report against the Ryan brothers after an incident at the Margaritaville bar on Saturday.

The accusation presumably arises from the video posted on Twitter over the weekend, unless of course the Ryans were involved in two different altercations in Nashville. Which wouldn’t really surprise anyone.

The filing of a report doesn’t mean either Ryan brother will be arrested or charged. It nevertheless shows that there an alleged victim who is motivated to see them brought to justice.

Rex and Rob coached together last year in Buffalo. Rob is currently out of football; Rex has been hired to work for ESPN.

    That’s not all it might $how and ju$tice may not be the only thing the alleged victim might be intere$ted in…

    I saw the video but (correct me if I am wrong) I thought I saw a guy hassling them and throwing a drink on Rex which is when he went after the guy. I’m no Ryan fan but I find their actions kind of defendable if that was the scenario.

    Or I could just make foot jokes.

    Go figure. Three jerks and alcohol result in trouble.

    Of course looking for a easy payout

    I suspect the Ryan brothers were fighting over the last chili-cheese Krispy Kreme doughnut and the other guy got in the way.

    Those two guys are overrated idiots.

    Seriously….why does anyone care what these two buffoons do anymore?? If we ignore them, maybe they’ll just go away.

  11. wannabeagm says: Jun 6, 2017 9:37 PM

    Hey man, I’m we just got off on the wrong foot…

  12. wannabeagm says: Jun 6, 2017 9:39 PM

    That would be I’m sorry we got off on the wrong foot.

    I’ll just go back to reading and not commenting.

    I bounced at a couple bars back in college. I wouldn’t even call this an altercation, we had stupid little flare-ups like this all the time. If the Ryan brothers worked at Jiffy Lube nobody is pursuing this or even giving it a second thought.

    I said throw down boy, or are you just going to stand there and bleed?

  15. drock36 says: Jun 6, 2017 9:44 PM

    Better call Saul

  16. mrf47 says: Jun 6, 2017 9:46 PM

    Of course this was at a Margaritaville.

    Surprised? The Redneck Boys at it again!

    Where was Richie when all this was going on ?

  20. jjackwagon says: Jun 6, 2017 10:25 PM

    Rob is currently out of football;

    Like a certain QB that you insist on writing about daily.

  21. charger383 says: Jun 6, 2017 11:00 PM

    sorry when well known people can’t go out and not have somebody provoke them for money or a few minutes of fame

  22. hakunamangata says: Jun 6, 2017 11:08 PM

    Let’s be honest “Ryan brothers arrested for assault in Nashville bar” wasn’t a headline you didn’t think you’d see in your lifetime

  23. bluenose1965 says: Jun 6, 2017 11:45 PM

    Nobody likes a chubby failed defensive coordinator touching up their women.

    “Go for it f&@k face!” -Rob Ryan

  25. silverandblack052099 says: Jun 7, 2017 1:27 AM

    I think it’s safe to say that Rex is also currently out of football.

  26. lambeaudungbarn says: Jun 7, 2017 1:32 AM

    Looks like BOTH could be out of the NFL… Buddy is rolling over in his grave saying…”That’s a way to go boys, don’t take any **** off anybody. You should have busted the guys jaw….
    FINALLY an entertaining story!

  27. truecowboyfan says: Jun 7, 2017 5:32 AM

    The guy was hamster enough to throw a drink on the Ryans. I’m not surprised he’s trying to file a lawsuit. Sounds like a straight up coward to me.

  28. nyneal says: Jun 7, 2017 5:51 AM

    I think I have finally have one that fits —
    The Ryan Brothers — Gomer and Goober……

  29. youngstownbengalsfan says: Jun 7, 2017 6:10 AM

    Maybe they though a kerfuffle was a pastry and went looking for one.

  30. eddiea25 says: Jun 7, 2017 6:16 AM

    Imagine the Ryan’s in Pipers Pit? A classic.

  31. araidersfan says: Jun 7, 2017 6:31 AM

    I thought that Ringling Bros. was closing down, but it seems that Rex & Rob are still a part of a traveling circus.

  32. mojodoa says: Jun 7, 2017 6:45 AM

    They should have beated that jerk’s ass to a pulp.

  33. bmacwillconn says: Jun 7, 2017 7:24 AM

    Not sure who’s worse. The classless buffoons aka “The Ryan Brothers” or the shameless punk filing legal charges looking for a payday.

  34. stairwayto7 says: Jun 7, 2017 7:25 AM

    He fits right in with hIs nonsense at ESPN.

  35. Akula says: Jun 7, 2017 7:55 AM

    I can’t tell from the video. Where did the park the clown car?

  36. bigbill8517 says: Jun 7, 2017 8:27 AM

    What is a “former accusation of assault?”

  37. kerrchris65 says: Jun 7, 2017 8:28 AM

    I expect to hear many stories coming out about people being serial crushed by a couple of huge freakin guys.

  38. braven4evr says: Jun 7, 2017 8:29 AM

    if he threw a drink in one of their faces first, then he got what he deserved.

    Just a typical money grab by someone that had an interaction of some type with people that they know there is money to be had if they play their cards right.

  41. finfansince68 says: Jun 7, 2017 10:32 AM

    It must’ve been “ALL You Can Eat Hot Wings” night
    at Margaritaville and the little guy butted in line! LOL

  42. vbbills says: Jun 7, 2017 11:04 AM

    Formal not former.

  43. dc33sd says: Jun 7, 2017 11:19 AM

    Bet it would be fun to hit the town for a couple of drinks with Rex and Rob!!

  44. 345snarkavenue says: Jun 7, 2017 11:37 AM
