Rex Ryan Fined $75,000 For Cursing At Fan In Patriots-Jets Game

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan was fined for cursing at a fan during the New England Patriots game in Week 10, according to Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com

Ryan was caught on video, which was uploaded to YouTube by a fan, cursing at who was apparently a Patriots fan. The fan said something to the effect of, "Hey Rex, Bill Belichick is better than you," as the Jets head coach was walking through the tunnel into the locker room. Ryan responded, "Shut the f--k up!" The video clearly caught the exchange between the two. 

Here's video of the incident.

It was believed Ryan could be facing a six-figure fine because this is the second time he's been caught in the act in a situation like this. A couple years ago, Ryan was pictured flipping off a Dolphins fan at an MMA event and had a few choice words for them. For that, he was fined $50,000.

Rex Ryan Apologizes For Cursing At Fan During Patriots-Jets Game

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan apologized on Monday after cameras caught him cursing at a fan at halftime of the New York Jets loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Ryan pointed out that he represents his team and the league and that his words were inappropriate.

Here's a snippet of what Ryan said to the media on Monday:

"I obviously made a mistake. I was full of emotion and just popped off. ... I apologize. I made a mistake."

As Ryan was walking into the tunnel at halftime, a fan yelled something to the effect of "Belichick is better than you!" Ryan looked up and said, "Shut the f--k up!"

The league is looking into the matter and it could end up being costly for Ryan. Last year he was fined $50,000 for flipping the bird to a Miami Dolphins fan at an MMA event so the fact that he's a repeat offender, and that said offense came inside an NFL stadium, will likely make this fine more expensive for the Jets head coach.
