You always see fans screaming at the players on the bench in a football game. I always wondered, do the players actually hear what they say?
As it turns out, yes they do.
NBC released a portion of their interview tonight with Raiders QB Derek Carr and it includes this quote from him on playing at Arrowhead:
“The Chiefs fans that sit behind (the bench) are very obnoxious,” Carr said in his interview with Peter King via NBC. “I can’t even repeat what they say. They hate the Raiders, oh my goodness, they hate us. It doesn’t stop either. It doesn’t stop from kickoff until the end of the game. I enjoy that, though – it’s all part of the rivalry.”
Surely after hearing this those Chiefs fans behind the bench will take it easy ... right?
