Coles fires back at rude fan

Posted Aug 11, 2008

It's no secret Jets receiver Laveranues Coles and the team's former quarterback, Chad Pennington, were extremely close. And it's no secret he hasn't taken Pennington's release well.

So when a fan insulted Pennington during Monday's practice, Coles let the individual know exactly how he felt about his comment.

After a deep pass down the left sideline to Coles, from Brett Favre, that was incomplete (pass interference on cornerback Darrelle Revis on the play), the receiver went over to the sideline to get some water.

While standing by the water cooler, the fan yelled, "Chad could never throw it that far."

Coles fired back, "F@*# you."

Coles is so upset about Pennington's release, he has refused to do all interviews since Chad's departure.
