UPDATE (6:38p ET): Here’s an eyewitness account of Ryan’s obscene gesture.
Jorge Sedano of 790 The Ticket in Miami and the MIAMI HERALD sent me this photo today of Rex Ryan flipping off fans last night at the MMA Strikeforce event in Miami:
Background on the shot from Sedano:
I received an email from a listener/reader who was at the event. This is how it read.
Here’s a pic of the Jets’ coach as he smiles and flicks off two of my friends at a recent MMA show in South Florida. They identified themselves as Dolphin fans and thus this is his reaction. You tend to expect some sort of a class from a head coach, or at least you used to…
Why do I have a feeling that the photographer’s friends did a little more than “identify themselves as Dolphin fans” to cause Ryan’s gesticulative reaction?
Ryan also did an interview on Showtime during the event which was aired over the public address system.
You probably won’t be surprised to find out that the coach said something that didn’t make Dolphins fans happy.
