Whenever players or coaches tell you they don’t hear things fans say, don’t believe them. Some may try to tune it out — and some may be better at that than others — but they all hear it. Why do you think someone like Milton Bradley resorted to wearing earplugs? The difference is most athletes or coaches don’t respond to fans, and they ignore what they hear. It may bother them, but most don’t react. Except for Rex Ryan.
The Jets coach once cursed out Dolphins fans at a Strikeforce MMA event in Miami. Any surprised he reacted to a taunt from a Patriots fan by dropping an f-bomb? Not here. Watch this video of Rex Ryan cussing out a Patriots fan (language NSFW):
Rex Ryan has said in the past that Bill Belichick is the best coach in the NFL, so unless he was lying, he shouldn’t have complained. Then again, you have to consider the environment. The Jets were losing a division game at home and Rex was pissed. He was in no mood for nonsense, which is understandable.
