Jets Rex Ryan doesn’t want to embarass NFL

After being hit with a $75,000 fine for telling a Patriots fan to “shut the f–k up”, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan announced that he and won’t appeal the decision from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

“I know the Commissioner has a tough enough job,” Ryan said, in comments distributed by the Jets.  “I’m an NFL lifer and I know I represent the NFL and I represent the Jets, so I’m accountable for my actions. So I will not appeal it.”

“His decision is that I should be fined $75,000,” Ryan said. “That’s the way it is. I just want to get it behind me. Obviously, it was a mistake that I made and I’m responsible for my actions. I haven’t denied that one bit or slouched on that responsibility. I understand it, and I know to coach in the National Football League is an honor. I don’t want to be the guy to put a black eye on this or whatever. I just want to get it behind me and move forward.”

Ryan admitted he messed up and apologized to Goodell personally.

No word on whether he apologized for the teams performance last Thursday in Denver.
