If there’s one thing that isn’t discussed in the Ryan household, it’s the time Buddy’s three sons collected on daddy’s bounty on door-to-door solicitors. Turns out Buddy was only kidding about that one. Good thing the Ryans had to move a lot for work. Still, it was the last time bounty jokes were used among the family.

In the years to come, Rex’s foot fetish also became a sensitive issue, especially after ravenous Internet gossip mongers made it a matter of public interest. Certainly, no one wanted to feed the prurient curiosity of the masses with detail, much less anything approaching confirmation. The matter would forever remain a talked-about, but never officially acknowledged, rumor. That is, of course, until the teams that Rex and Rob were coaching played a few times. The Ryans were never much for silence.

Rob Ryan all but confirmed the video was authentic with his response to a question about being disappointed that the matter became public. He said his brother was freaky.

“Naw, I mean hell, he is a little freaky I guess,” Rob Ryan said. “Hell, I don’t know. I like everything about my wife. She got great feet, too. She got everything nice. What the hell.”

Rex has already issued a tight-lipped non-comment in response to the media. With any luck, the controversy will devolve into a public wrestling match between the Ryans made available on pay-per-view. Or, even better, during a timeout at New Meadowlands Stadium on Sunday.

I must say, however, that isn’t it just a little bizarre that the league’s official web site has a teaser about this story on its front page? It’s not usually the kind of thing that the NFL is in a hurry to promote.
