MUCH RESPECT For K.C. Chiefs O-Lineman Eric Winston For Calling Out The Home Crowd For Their DESPICABLE Acts (VIDEO) 0

Posted on October 08, 2012 by Joe Gill

K.C. Chiefs Lineman Eric Winston deserves EVERYONE’s RESPECT after his post-game RANT. He called out 70,000 Chiefs fans for cheering, yes CHEERING when his quarterback Matt Cassel was knocked out of the game due to a concussion.

Wow, this is just SHAMEFUL and Eric Winston is RIGHT. These players are PEOPLE like you and me.

They BLEED like us.

They get HURT like us.

And they have FEELINGS and EMOTIONS like us.

Sports sometimes rips the HUMANITY out of people and just as Winston said brings us back to the days of the Romans cheering as the Christians getting thrown to the lions.

Hats off and much RESPECT goes to Eric Winston, I just became his BIGGEST fan because of his BRAVERY to speak out and DEDICATION to his teammates/brothers.

      Rusty Staub

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is a former major league baseball player who came into the game as a teenager and stayed until he was in his 40s. In between, Rusty Staub put up a solid career that was primarily spent on expansion or rebuilding teams.

      Originally signed by the Colt .45s at age 17, he made his major league debut as a 19-year old rookie and became only the second player in the modern era to play in more than 150 games as a teenager.

      Though he hit only .224 splitting time between first base and rightfield, Staub did start building a foundation that would turn him into an All-Star by 1967 when he finished fifth in the league with a .333 batting average.
