Nice!

You gotta give some credit to whoever wrote Rex's contract (Overdorf?). It was smart putting that offset language in there about broadcasting jobs.

Well I for one am glad he has offset language in his deal for broadcasting jobs, at least. Not my money, but I get some level of satisfaction considering he's been cashing his Pegula checks with a ski mask on.

The irony of Rex needing high IQ players!

Seriously though, a great defensive mind but way out of his depth as a head coach.

And his classless remarks in the Mehta piece were an unnecessary cheap shot. He literally can't stop himself.

That great defensive mind went brain dead his two years in Buffalo.

Nope. I have seen and heard enough of this joker. I won't watch him.

Rex tried to defend against that clause but it got through anyway.

I can see it now.  Rex leading a 10 person panel show where only half the guys are in the right chair before coming back from commercial break, cameramen struggling to stay focused on the speaker.  We'll hear all about how its the most complicated sports show on the air today. After 2 years of losing the ratings battle to the local show in the New England area, Rex gets canned and spends the summer talking about how he and his brother are teaming up to take radio by storm.

I already don't watch much ESPN at all, now I know for sure I will be bypassing that channel. Rather not hear his mouthy nonsense. Only time I watch ESPN is when Berman is up there. I feel I can relate to him more for some reason... :D :D

Who are the idiots who write PFT stories?

 

The first paragraph is 100% factually incorrect.  Rex will get paid from ESPN as per his contract, and Pegulas won't have to pay him whatever ESPN pays him. 

 

So how much will former Jets and Bills coach Rex Ryan make over the next three years as an employee of ESPN? Probably not a dime.

 

 

Morons.

Isn't that what they're saying?  He makes zero because it offsets from what the Pegulas would already be paying him.  AKA working for free.

Working for free indicates that he's not getting a penny from his employer.

 

That is wrong.  

 

He's going to get a paycheck from ESPN, and that paycheck from ESPN will reduce the amount he's set to receive from Pegulas on a dollar for dollar basis.

 

To recap - He won't be working for free, he will get paid by ESPN, but he won't be getting paid by Pegulas.

I think what they were trying to say was whether he's working or not, he was still getting paid.  So he's not making anything extra by working at ESPN or staying at home.

 

"Thus, with $5.5 million due to Ryan for each of the next three years, the biggest winners in light of Ryan’s employment at ESPN are owners Terry and Kim Pegula, who will be getting credit for every dollar Ryan earns at ESPN, up to $5.5 million per year."

I know what they were trying to say.  But it's not what they actually said.  Hence, idiots.

Well this is different than previously reported

@profootballtalk
How does ESPN justify adding Rex Ryan when it's shedding millions? Per source, he's getting $300,000 per year. Buffalo pays another $5.2M.

@profootballtalk
I hope I'm wrong, but I think TV Rex Ryan will be not nearly as entertaining as Head Coach Rex Ryan.

Terry and Kim get back financially what is akin to buying a Snickers bar for them ($300K a year).

 

ESPN gains a blowhard who will spend more time talking about how great he was than he does working to provide critical analysis.

 

Coach Ryan--I have met John Madden and you are no John Madden.

Eh I think that that's a little unfair. He wasn't a great head coach, but by all accounts he was much less bluster than in his early Jets days, and genuinely a good guy. He took a couple years away that's could have spent towards building a better team, with another coach, but I don't wish him bad, and think he will be good at his new role.

Totally concur that he will do fine and I don't wish him ill will.

 

However, he will be doing a lot more talking about himself and his "achievements" than he will be providing critical analysis.  His analysis will almost always lead back to him rather than about the specific situation.  That was my main point.
