    One huge difference...my focus was concentrated on someone injured for a brief few minutes. I wasn't a victim of relentless booing & heckling for 3 1/2 hours.

    Try focusing on your job with a crowd of angry people booing & heckling you...how focused would you remain?

    Why is it that some fans have the misconception that pro football players don't have the same emotions & limitations to breaking points that all humans have? The negative fan behavior has been occurring since the MLB All Star Charity Game when fans booed Cassel. It has occurred every pre-season & regular season home game. It wears a human being down, I don't care who you are or how much money you make...you're still human.

    "Sick" might be a word worth investigating.

The reason I didn't hear it, is because I was solely focused on Matt laying on the ground, not paying attention to the crowd environment around me at all.

    Not only did my friends acknowledge it happening in their sections...other Chiefs players besides Eric have made public comments about witnessing it, and so have some of the Ravens players, saying they were appalled.

    It doesn't matter really whether or not every fan participated in the celebration of Cassel's injury...it only matters that enough fans participated that players on both teams witnessed it, as did many fans at the game.

    Some fans behind me were not *cheering* persay, but they were making derogatory comments being very happy Matt was injured & might not finish the game. They were also chanting throughout the game, "Brady, Brady, Brady"...it was distracting.

    Fans by a majority began booing & heckling Matt & the offense when they took the field for their first drive. They hadn't even made any mistakes, but the booing & heckling began anyway. They booed & heckled each time the offense took the field. :(

    I would imagine by the time Cassel was injured, the entire Chiefs roster had it's fill. They are not happy with Chiefs fans right now, at all. A fan base they once claimed was the best to play for in the NFL, and interact with. Many are withdrawing, no longer interacting among fans. Fans are disrupting their focus, making their job more difficult, beating down their morale & confidence when booing & heckling from the first drive to the last. :(
    I have to agree, this simply is not right.

    Throwing the BS flag on that one.

    It just so happens that the MVP for every Chiefs opponent this season was wearing a Chiefs jersey, I'm not going to feel any less relief just because of that.

    Lets be real about it, he wasn't life flighted out of the stadium to get immediate life saving surgery. He was squished between a couple of big beefy types, never hit in the head and taken out with a 'head injury'.

    With regards to Pioli taking a 'headshot' or getting 'blasted', I never said anything about him being injured. I'd just like to see them take some of these hits. I promise you that if Clark Hunt leaned/leaped out to try and catch some over the middle Cassel pass, that as soon as he was conscious again there'd be a different QB taking snaps.
    I call that mentality cowardice.

    When you are not good enough at something to beat another, trying to injure them so you don't have to play them is cowardice.

    I typed out a response but its not worth posting, I understand the point you make but slightly disagree with it. There is enough in-fighting around this fan base right now and there is no need to further add to it.

    OH MAN!!!!!

    This wreck of a season....Chiefs fans paying for anti Cassel/Pioli overflights....and now we are fighting amongst ourselves here on Chiefscrowd. WTF???



    I wasn't there, but there does not seem to be any doubt that some people felt Chiefs fans were cheering Cassel's injury. And it doesn't really surprise me. I'm a pretty loyal guy, but even I was sick to death of Cassel by halftime yesterday.

    Cassel is injured and even if he recovers in a day or two I doubt we will see him on the field as a Chief again.

    Let's stop fighting last week's battle and start worrying about who is going to be the starting QB for the rest of this season and beyond. I hate to say it, but I wouldn't be one bit surprised if by the end of the season some of the Cassel haters are wishing for Cassel to be back on the field.

    That is absolute nonsense.

    What is home field advantage? What is the crowd for?

    It absolutely matters.
