Have to go west to Jets-land for a second here, just to say the reaction to Rex Ryan flipping off some lunkhead at a Mixed Martial Arts bout in South Florida is way, way overblown.
In fact, knowing what goes on and what's said in crowds that gather for MMA and wrestling shows, a raised middle finger and an expletive probably ranks as one of the milder moments of the evening. Those are crazy folks, right there.
If anything, Ryan might want to avoid those events in the future, so as not to put himself in situations where his emotions might be photographed getting the best of him. But let's face it, it was an MMA show. And the guy was heckling him. So let's not get too moralistic about it.
