Kansas City Chiefs OT Eric Winston told reporters after Sunday's game that fans who cheered when Matt Cassel was hurt were "sickening" and "disgusting". Here's a transcript of what Winston said.
Later on Sunday, he stood by what he said with this:
Obviously i know not all 70k were cheering. And please don't act like the cheering started when Quinn came in.— Eric Winston (@ericwinston) October 7, 2012
Right. I was sitting up in the press box and as Cassel went down more than a few fans stood up and cheered in the sections I was looking at. Now, I'm not gonna go out and make a statement about that after the game -- it probably drew more attention to the situation -- but that is what happened.
I won't RT some of the mentions I got but I encourage people to go thru them. To the vast majority of you, thank you for the support!!— Eric Winston (@ericwinston) October 7, 2012
I've said what I wanted to say and i won't be talking about it any further. I stand by what I have said. I believe what I said.— Eric Winston (@ericwinston) October 7, 2012
