The team management is uneasy about the issue and the coach himself has refused to elaborate on the foot video issue citing privacy reasons. In one such video the person who shoots the footage pays compliment to the woman. The coach is not willing to divulge the details and said to a media entity “I understand I’m going to get asked this question frontways. sideways, backways and all this, but it’s a personal matter.”
Rex Ryan talked his the players in the Jets team about the issue so that they know what to answer if they face the same question from the media. The players told that the coach informed them that they may face the issue but it is something private to him and that should be respected. A NFL representative named Greg Aiello ruled out the possibility of the coach facing actions over the foot video controversy. He said that Rex Ryan has not breached any NFL personal conduct policy at all.
The New York Jets management has stood by the coach and said that Rex Ryan will get their support over the foot video issue. Even the players seem to be on his side. One of them said what the coach does with his wife should be left to them.
