1.) Eric Winston gained a new fan when I heard his admonishment of the KC fans. He is dead on with his words.
2.) As to the bolded, that is just as f*cked up as cheering for your own player when injured. You just don't cheer for injuries. Period. WTF? Is it because we gain a competitive advantage when they're out of the game? That's admitting you can't beat them otherwise and I find that cowardly. Or is it because they're just a$$holes and you're glad they got hurt for that reason alone? Either way, I don't understand it and I really don't care to.
I'll give you points for your honesty, though.
I do agree with you on this point. I find it disturbing when fans cheer when a player gets injured.
Although I will admit, I wasn't exactly upset when Rodney Harrison had his leg broken, and I wouldn't be broken-hearted if someone took a shot at Vince Wilfork and putting him out for a year.
I know that is bad karma, but guys like Harrison & Wilfork are thugs. Harrison was a dirty player who took pride in his fines & suspensions, and he's rewarded by being an analyst on NBC.
I will never forget when Wilfork delivered an elbow to J.P. Losman's leg/knee. We all saw it, and it was an outrage that he was never fined or suspended. Yet the media still does these glowing stories on him and his wife. Wilfork is nothing but a cheap shot artist!
