Houston Texans fans are the latest group to win the uncivil award when they cheered at a player who got hurt.
Texans quarterback Matt Schaub injured his ankle Sunday afternoon and had to leave the game. A large amount of Texans fans cheered at the injury because Schaub is having a bad year and their team is 2-4 on the season.
Last year Kansas City Chief’s fans cheered when starting quarterback Matt Cassel left the game with a concussion. In 1999, Philadelphia Eagles fans cheered when Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin injured his neck and lay motionless on the turf.
When is it okay to cheer when someone gets hurt in the NFL?
The answer should be never but should we be surprised when drunk fans cheer?
Let them know VY is in shape and ready to go! I always loved my birth place and everyone who lives in it IM READY
