Rex Ryan rips Orioles for scheduling conflict with Ravens

On Thursday, the National Football League released 2013 schedules for all 32 teams.

The slate is filled with great games from top-to-bottom, but New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is not happy about one game in particular. And what makes it odd is the fact that the game doesn't even involve his own team.

No, Ryan is steamed that the defending champion Baltimore Ravens will be opening up the regular season on the road against the Denver Broncos because of a scheduling conflict with Baltimore's MLB team, the Orioles.

He went on a mini-rant Thursday to help prove his point.

“Well, who really cares, you've got 81 at home, maybe you could have done the right thing and given one up and then played 82 on the road and then 80 at home,” Ryan said per Seth Waldman of the New York Daily-News. “I really don't think people are going to care about that game.

"You have a chance to have the defending world champs open up the season at home where they rightfully should. That's unfortunate."

It's possible that Ryan could have some bias toward the situation, though. Ryan spent many years in Baltimore (1999-2008) serving as an assistant before taking his current position with New York.

“Certainly, I can understand, if baseball only had a 16-game schedule you might understand it,” Ryan said. "But when they have 162 games, you might just [have the] common courtesy and say, you know what, maybe I'll play this one on the road or whatever.

“It's not just my love of Baltimore, I do love Baltimore, but I love this New York area here better than I do Baltimore now. It's just the way it is. It's not just my loyalty to that fan base."

So, there you go. I doubt Ryan will be attending many Orioles games this season.

  1. this guy is starting already? it's not even his team and it has no effect on his team. maybe if he actually tried coaching instead of runninig his mouth his team would get somewhere.

  2. He might be a blowhard....but he's 100% right. It's an absolute shame that something couldn't be worked out to make this happen.

    1. The nfl is to blame. Why should the Orioles change their game. The nfl should just play when the want. It is two different stadiums. BTW Rex should worry about his own sorry team

    2. The two stadiums share a single parking lot.

    3. Any organization with the right leadership what have given the defending champs a chance to open at home and a home game against the broncos. As the guys say c'mon man. Now you go to broncos. Really. Then you wonder why the orioles are loser. I wish the fans bocott that game a stay home and watch ravens

  6. It doesn't have to be so complicated. The NFL knew that the O's and Ravens shared the same parking lot. The schedule makers could've seen the O's schedule and realize that it wasn't going to be possible. So, move it to Wed or Fri, Sat. Hell, its the first game of the season. Both teams would get a couple extra days more to prepare for their next opponent, too.

  8. Rex take your wife's foot and shove it up your brother's ass and then in your mouth. Then rinse and repeat. Then ask u why your team sucks.

  9. Why not start on the Wednesday instead of Thursday. That option was always there.
    Shut up Rex

  10. I had no idea it was written in stone the season had to open on a Thursday. That is so odd. How did we ever get by with Sunday games with a Monday nite kicker?

  11. Does anything that a guy who is facing the unemployment have to say really matter? Rex Ryan = Moron
