Well to be a Chiefs fan is short for a Chiefs FANATIC. That's what the business is all about. They want us to be fanatics and spend our money and by doing so the team becomes very personal to us. The team becomes a part of our lives and even effect our emotions. When the Chiefs are winning you see the same fans cheering and going crazy and spending money because we love this team. The team also has to accept the bad that comes with FANATICS, becoming unruly, disrespectful, and demanding. It's the nature of the business. Why is anyone surprised? When Cassel got injured I was very happy that Brady might play. I honestly could care less about Cassel. Doesn't mean I wished he was hurt at all.
I'm not lumping you in with this McLovin, but it's a very childish reaction from some people on here to get all aghast and act indignant towards the people who did cheer when Cassel went down. It is an inherently violent game and pretending otherwise is laughable.
I start to feel bad for Cassel being boo'd and just generally despised by the fanbase but then I remember that he is financially set for life from this one contract and doesn't ever have to work again. Then I don't really feel so bad for him anymore.
It's hard to say that you hope someone is hurt and then say you're not happy with the injury IMO. You have the right to feel how you feel you have the right to your opinion and no one is going to ask you to apologize for your opinion but I have the right to say I disagree with your views and I think there wrong. I think you're wrong for saying that you hope a guy is hurt. That's my opinion Not saying you're a bad person just disagree with you on your viewpoint.
I to wanted Cassel benched I said so a number of times in the game thread. But I will never cheer or hope that any player is hurt before or after it happens. No matter how poorly they have played. I

First off I hope and wish, and PRAY, and I really do and did pray for Cassels full recovery.
Now to Eric Winston, This guy is not the reason to stand up and say the things he did, it is extremely devisive and nothing short of a thing to turn attention away from his own under aCHIEFing start here at KC. Yes people did cheer, but clearly more and many more fans were watching JC cross the first down marker.People tend to keep their eye on the ball, just saying. Sure some cheered because Cassel was down, some cheered because of a bad case of frustration after the way he played, some spent hundreds of dollars to see a game and got the worst show you can imagine. But very few fans accually wanted to see Cassel or anyone get hurt. I do however believe 95 percent of the fans wanted to see a different qb, and that does NOT make anyone a bad person. I was at home and felt real bad about Cassel but did feel a huge excitement on knowing we would see someone else under center.
Winston is a new comer and has not played to his patential, and I'm sure feels badly for not having done his job and protected the QB , something all OL players want to do. I'm sure he was angry and hurt, and lashed out at ALL the fans when really it was just a small portion that acted foolishly.
Winston was the wrong guy to stand up and complain.
Now we and him the Chiefs are even more of the laughing stock. The Chiefs were already viewed as the clowns because of still having Cassel as their QB. No other team, and I mean no other team would have had Casssel as their starter.
Winston showed us all, he cares nothing about any of the fans, he put them all in the same catagory. He was wrong to speak up and even divide this team and the fan base more, because of his comments the Chiefs are a lesser team.
He is cutting off the hands that feed him.
Again I wish Cassel a quick and complete recovery, but hope he never gets under center in a Chiefs uniform.
The Chiefs were the JOKE of the NFL even before yesterdays game. That is all managment and coaching.
The Fans have to stand up and demand better.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expect different results.

I may add as well that the Chiefs Fans are the best and most loyal fans in the universe, well next to Al Qaeda and Hezbollah.
It has been 20 years since we won a playoff game and the stands are full on any and every game, sadly they tend to empty out by the beginning of the 4th quarter.
Connie, Chiefster and Chief 31 have said it well enough. I believe if you are happy a member of your favorite team has gone down with an injury whether you were drunk at the time or what, you seriously need to give your head a shake.
Even though we are behind in the standings there are better fans who are much younger that are watching your acts. I always loved the behavior of the Kansas City Chiefs fan base and know I will continue to no matter what.
And I admit I have made my mistakes in fan behavior at times but jeez, you know, c'mon already.
