It bears repeating... Winston is not the only player to have mentioned it. Just the one getting the press, because he was the most visibly upset about it.
You may want little pansy players who ignore hatred for their teammates, but I don't.
But you just keep lashing out in every direction except for those who behaved poorly, and see if that restores the reputation of Chiefs fans.
Live with it. Get used to it. It's true, factual, and easy to prove.
Actually, it is isn't.
It is an opinion, either way.
But again, other players have said things about it too. It truly is the fans' fault for the fans' reputation, just like with Eagles or Raiders fans.
When you have a minority of the fans behave poorly, it reflects on the entirety of the fanbase.
It is not right, nor accurate. But it is reality.
Winston is the reason this got national news. Period. This isn't an opinion it's the truth. The funny part is that in the same week Winston goes on to say junk like what's below!
“What you didn’t hear Winston say: that he wants the Chiefs to be a bunch of brawlers on the field.”

Are you kidding me?!? According to Winston they aren't gladiators, everyone in the stadium was cheering Cassel getting hurt and it disgusts him. But, we (the Chiefs) need to be brawlers out there.
Winston...I mean hypocrite, party of one!
CHIEFS fans have given Chiefs fans a bad rep. And this preference for attacking another Chiefs player for defending his fallen QB, OVER the acknowledgement that it was the fans' fault, is just adding to it.
I would hope that even the fans who did cheer the injury would have come out by now and said "yeah..... I was a d**, and shouldn't have done that", as a few around here have done.
But this insistence upon changing the focus from the a**holes to the OT who stood up for his concussed QB suggests to me that alot of Chiefs fans think that Winston protecting his teammate is worse than fans cheering for his injury.
It is doing nothing to color Chiefs fans back in the light of being classy fans.
It reminds me of the middle east, and how we want the "good Muslims" to condemn the bad, but it seems like "they" just get mad at us, doesn't it?
Same logic here. Instead of owning up to the REAL problem, just go off on whoever says that some of your own did wrong.
The fans that cheered the injury gave Chiefs fans a bad rep and Winston added to it when he made his 70,000 comment. I think Winston would like that have that comment back now. Winston did the right thing by standing up for his teammate but he also misspoke that's where the problem with Winston is IMO.
