Ryan, Jets on foot vids: 'It's a personal matter'

Anyone who's ever seen Rex Ryan handle a room full of reporters usually comes away laughing because he's almost always jovial in front of a microphone. Not so on Wednesday, when Ryan was asked the inevitable questions about the foot fetish videos that popped up on Deadspin Tuesday.

"Obviously, I knew this question is coming," he said. "This is a personal matter, and I'm not going to discuss it."

Ryan repeated the line when asked whether he could confirm that it was indeed he and his wife in the videos. (Note that no one has actually confirmed this; there is just a whole lot of circumstantial evidence that has many a person believing it's the Ryans on film.)

"Again, this is a personal matter, and I hope you can respect the fact I wish not to discuss it," Ryan replied.

Darrelle Revis was a little more forthcoming about the possibility that Ryan may or may not have been in the videos, telling reporters that Ryan said he was "embarrassed."

"He basically came in there and said, 'You guys might know about the situation; some of you guys might not know,'" Revis said via Jenny Vrentas of the New Jersey Star-Ledger. "'You'll find out later on today. Right now, I feel embarrassed, but it's something personal with me. We need to focus on Chicago.'"

The Jets have Ryan's back on this, issuing a statement from GM Mike Tannenbaum that read, "This is a personal matter, and he has our full support." The NFL isn't commenting one way or another on it either, also calling it "a personal matter."

Of course, there's nothing wrong with the videos. They're just "different." Or maybe not, it's not my thing, but it's not sexual harassment and it's just -- if it is actually Ryan and his wife anyway -- two people who clearly love each other doing whatever floats their boat.

That being said, for those people who want the world to develop a modicum of privacy over this for someone as profoundly public as Ryan's been since he took over the Jets, well, your expectations greatly exceed reality.

LMFAO...That video is to funny.  What a fucking clown. Do these guys really think they are championship material?  I feel embarrassed for him in some sick way.

I don't blame his wife

I bet she'd rather him just spank it on her feet than have to touch that fat slob. Seriously, if all wives were that cool, this world would be a better place.

If it's Ryan, he has a problem.

"Mind if I touch them?" "Is it o.k. to touch them again?" "Can I smell them?" "Most men like to do a lot of things with those feet."

He is an embarrasment to the NFL.

Judge for yourself.
