Texans quarterback Matt Schaub went down with a knee injury during a game against the St Louis Rams and the fans did something Jets fans consistently did when Mark Sanchez was benched (the few times he was): they cheered. (video: http://youtu.be/Zmw2aWuRa48)
There is a difference between being benched and being injured which makes this situation disgusting and former Super Bowl champ, Ben Roethlisberger, agrees.
“Booing when somebody gets hurt, it was just sickening. It’s just so hard to understand, especially your home crowd.”
“When people were showing up at his house to do negative things, that’s cause for some action from the player,” Roethlisberger said. “That’s your family. When we’re on that field and we’re in that stadium you can boo, you can yell at us but when we step outside we’re human beings just like everybody else. We’ve got feelings, we’ve got family.”
