Quoteworthy:

"It was stupid and inappropriate. I wouldn't accept that type of behavior from one of the coaches or players, and it's unacceptable from me. I apologize to the Jets' organization, the National Football League and NFL fans everywhere."

New York Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan was present at this past weekend's Strikeforce: "Miami" event and conducted an interview that was televised on Showtime. Ryan's comments were noticeably drowned out by the boos from all of the Miami Dolphins fans, who are one of the Jets' biggest rivals. After the interview, Ryan was caught sending a memo to one of the hecklers in the crowd through an obscene gesture. But I suppose that is what happens now that everyone in the world has a camera on their cell phone. That is simply Rex Ryan being Rex Ryan; a fiery and prideful guy who's never willing to give any ground. He's behind enemy lines on a division rival's soil in Miami "waving" at a rival fan. That's about it.
