    As much as I hate Rex Ryan, this is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. My seats are a section away from the visitor's tunnel (118) and I see players do FAR worse on a every game basis.

    Pretty consistent with the way Goodell does business.

    Yeah, I hate Rexy as much as anyone, but this is a little excessive. Of course, it's typical GOD-dell so it's not surprising.

    I think when Rex did the middle finger deal at Miami it set off a watch on his behavior towards fans.

    Fans and what they spend are what keeps these guys employed and the league intact..without fans there is nothing .

    In regards to that you simply have to hide your emotions and ignore fan reaction which is part of the game...you can't disrespect fans by vocal and when you represent the shield,especially out loud and close up.

    Unless a fan hits you with a beer bottle or such which would bring on an appropriate and just reaction,you should be fined

    Simply take it like a man and ignore blowhards as a professional coach in today's sports leagues.

    Just my opinion which apparently is in the minority.

    He's probably been on double secret probation since he flipped the bird to that guy in Miami and got fined $50k for doing it.

    $100,000 seems excessive, but I guess you can't have Coaches telling fans to **** off.

    It's awful tough for a commissioner to become the worst in North American sports when you consider the competition includes a guy who sabotaged his own sport through expansion and a season-crippling strike (Bettman/NHL), a goofball who made an exhibition game have championship implications (Selig/MLB), and a smug P.O.S. who's seen two work stoppages in 13 years (Stern/NBA). But Goodell managed to pull it off somehow. He's historically awful.

    That one was also excessive. Stuff like this and Ryan cursing happens all the time, but only seems to be fined if there is video proof. Imagine that, losing hundreds of thousands of dollars because someone managed to catch it with their camera.

    I think in Adams' case the fine was proportionate with his income. Ryan was fined 50K for his bird flip, and it wasn't even on the job!

    Yes - if you publicly embarrass Goodell expect an over-reaction and a fine.

    That pretty much sums up Spygate as well - coaches today are still covering their mouths when calling in plays. Most fans are too stupid to comprehend why - but because stupid fans over-reacted to Spygate so too did Goodell, and he didn't care that the Patriots were slandered in the process.

    Regardless - as far as this instance is concerned Goodell is wrong.

    Wrecks Ryan is the perfect representative of the New York Jets and their fans and no NFL fan expects any differently from him.

    Imagine...fined a MILLION dollars because a camera the team is allowed to use is in an area that is declared off limits, for whatever peculiar reason....but you're right, open profanity aimed at paying fans of the NFL. by one of the 32 elite representatives of the sport worldwide should be treated as "just gosh darnit good ol' boy fun...everybody does it"...maybe you should take YOUR kids to a Jets game along with your wife and get the in person experience of being cursed out in public by a famous sports personality...then you can tell your kids "see?...that's how you have good ol' fun and you act that way when YOU grow up"...that way we can all expect, in a generation, to be able to go to McDonald's an order a Big Mac, and the server will say "eff you, we got your money sucker, now GTF outta here"...yes, the world will be a better place....just let EVERYTHING go

    Yeah, the NFL is really suffering under Goodell's watch. The league may fold within a few years. :rolleyes:

    None of the leagues are a real threat to fold, too popular. The NFL is the most fun league to watch but has the worst commish running it. Those are the facts. You can't seriously be happy with the job Goodell is doing, especially considering the guy he replaced.

    That's only a "fact" for people who have never heard of David Ster, Gary Bettman or Bud Selig.
    Um, the guy he replaced was a horrible commissioner. There's a reason nobody seems interested in putting him in the Hall of Fame.

    I disagree with Goodell's handling of spygate and I don't like the move to put more regular season games in London. But overall he has done a fine job as commish, bringing the league to previously-unseen heights of popularity and managing to get a new, long term CBA without missing a single meaningful game. If you think new CBA's are easy to negotiate, just ask David Stern and Gary Bettman how they've done with such things.

    Goodell makes Tagliabue look like the best commissioner in the history of sport by comparison. And, sad as it is, Stern, Bettman and Selig (I say this even as Selig is making stupid moves regarding the wild card) are all better commissioners than Goodell.

    What's your point? A lot of people deserve credit for the NFL not going to oblivion, even temporarily, by getting this new deal done. But fact is that no matter the league, the commissioner is the point man for all involved. If you don't believe me, just ask David Stern. Or Gary Bettman. Or Bud Selig.

    If the NFL had lost games, the irrational Goodell-haters would be criticizing him for that and rightfully so, just like Stern is getting heavily criticized for the NBA fiasco. But although we didn't lose any NFL games, they refuse to give Goodell any credit.

    This is nothing more than an opinion based heavily on ignorance. Bettman lost a full season, Selig lost the World Series one year and Stern is well on the way to losing a full season. Meanwhile under Goodell's watch, the NFL has become an even better and more popular product than it had ever been.

    The Goodell haters love to hate, but they are always short on specifics. I agree he handled spygate poorly and I also mentioned that I don't like the expansion of regular season games to London. But tell me, besides those things, what is it about Goodell's tenure that makes you think he is doing such a bad job? Or is your irrationality based purely on spygate?

    Go fine yourself, Roger!

    Don't you wonder if Roger Goodell ever said exactly what Rex said when sitting in his office listening to a Rex Ryan press conference?

    When it comes to ignorance, you're an expert. I've made point after point about Goodell since he's been commissioner. I've been specific, and I've been consistent. As for what you claim is irrationality, I'll take your opinion and give it every bit of worth I think it deserves.

    If Rex gets fined $100K for that, then it just might be the dumbest fine in NFL history.

    Well, second dumbest. Spygate was still worse.

    Yeah, whenever someone is reduced to saying "I know you are but what am I?" as you've just done, that's just further confirmation they're wrong.
