I will resist taking this opportunity to poke fun at the Kansas City Chiefs fans for cheering after their quarteback got knocked out. It was a sleazy thing to do, but can we really say that the same thing would never happen here?
Although, after Eric Winston’s post-game locker room speech to the K.C. media, maybe no fan base will ever do a thing like that again.
Winston’s message is concise, powerful, accurate and heart-felt. It should, if you have a soul, make you view athletes a little bit differently. Yes, they are there to entertain us – but they make big sacrifices. Winston points out that he may not live as long because he plays football. That’s a heavy price.
Matt Cassell has been awful for K.C.. But there’s no excuse to cheer his being injured.
