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.

      The favorite target of Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach, Pearson was widely recognized as one of the great receivers of his era. Though at the time of his retirement many expected Pearson to easily breeze into the Hall of Fame, his enshrinement was derailed by changes to the game which artificially inflated receiver stats and made the numbers he produced during a time when wide receivers weren’t catching 100 passes a season seem inferior.
