The Battle for New York City took another surprising twist yesterday with a plea from Giants’ Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “I want to take care of a personal matter at this time before I answer any questions about the upcoming game. Rex, please stop prank calling me and my assistant coaches. We know it’s you and frankly, it’s extremely childish.” When asked to clarify about the phone calls, “He’s calling us pretending to be all sorts of characters from Brady to my Mother. He uses the same voice every-time and doesn’t try to disguise it. Once was in all good fun; now it’s just harassment.”
The Jets denied any wrong doing, saying that the phone calls occurred on a private residence. “We are doing an internal investigation right now and will not accuse anyone at this time,” Jets’ owner Woody Johnson said when asked about Coach Ryan’s actions, “Rex has been known to prank call people in the past, but there was never malicious intent. We will stand by our Head Coach until we have all the facts of the case.” Sources inside the Jets organization have hinted that this episode was brought on by the Giants recent win in the NFC Championship game. Coach Rex Ryan had invited some players over to watch the contest. Alcohol and illicit drugs have not been ruled out as a contributing factor.
Below is a transcript of one of the prank calls received by Coach Couglin. The following contains graphic language:
Tom Coughlin: Hello?
Caller #1: (Yelling) HEY FAGGOT! It’s Bill!
TC: Bill? Wait, Bill Belichick?
1: Of course, who’d ya think? Congrats on beating the red team.
TC: Oh the Niners? Yeah, they were a great team and I think our guys really showed…
1: Yeah yeah yeah, shut up. I’m going to beat you in the superbowl, ball face! Get it? Your face looks like a pair of balls!
Caller #2: (Background) No No! Tell him you’ll put your balls on his face.
