Former NFL Coach 'Appalled' By Trump's Remarks

Rex Ryan has a change of heart, sort of.
Views:

Apparently for Rex Ryan, Trump can disrespect any other groups he wants (blacks, hispanics, women, gays, etc) with complete impunity, but disrespecting the NFL is just too much to bear.

Ryan, who is no longer the Bills coach but is now analyzing the NFL for ESPN, took exception to Trump's remarks.

REX RYAN: I'm reading these comments and it's appalling to me, and I'm sure it's appalling to almost any citizen in our country. It should be. Calling our players SOBs and all that stuff. That's not the men that I know. Men that I know in the locker room, I'm proud to be associated with those people. I apologize for being pissed off, but guess what, that's it. Because right away, I'm associated with what Donald Trump stands for and all that because I introduced him. I never signed up for that. I never wanted that. That doesn't mean I support 100-percent of the things he says, and clearly this is a case."

And naturally, this is what Rex Reed said when he introduced Trump at a campaign rally in 2016:

"There's so many things I admire about Mr. Trump, but one thing I really admire about him is, you know what, he'll say what's on his mind," Ryan said. "But so many times, you'll see people, a lot of people want to say the same thing. But there's a big difference. They don't have the courage to say it. They all think it, but they don't have the courage to say it.

"And Donald Trump certainly has the courage to say it, and that's why I respect him. And you know what? So do the people of New York. This man, he's one of the greatest businessmen, obviously, that we can ever remember. There's no question about that."
