He got a tattoo years ago. Then after a bad season he went on vacation, and reporter saw tattoo and photographed it. I mean. Are you saying Rex brought attention to himself by taking his shirt off on the beach?
Not exactly. What I'm saying is that Rex is already under a HUGE amount of scrutiny. The first losing season, the QB controversy (specifically, sticking with Sanchez as long as he did), the questionable hiring of Tony S, his bumbling press conferences, his "prediction" of a top 5 defense, his comments about this being the best Jets team he's ever had, etc. To top that off, his GM gets fired, a press conference is scheduled, gets cancelled, and gets put off until next week, which breaks NFL rules and really pisses of the media hyena's salivating for some scraps to turn into stories.
With all that said, and knowing how the media is, one of the last places I'd go is a VERY public place, on the biggest resort in one of the most popular winter vacation spots, with a tattoo on my arm depicting my wife wearing the jersey of a QB, whom I've been very controversially backing all year, that suspiciously looks like she's "Tebowing", for any person to photograph, whether it be media or some clown that posts said picture to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc. You have to be aware. Think ahead. If I were Rex, go ahead...vacation. But I would've done it at a more private location.
But that's just me.
