Millions of people disagree with Winston on this one and I wouldn't be surprised if he's a hypocrite on this issue. Boxers and MMA fighters get KO'd and the crowds erupt and I'd bet money Winston has partaken in the cheering in his life since most football players watch combat sports. People in KC don't like Cassell the way someone may not like Floyd Mayweather or Anderson Silva. Just because it happens to your guy, the guy you root for, it makes it sickening all the sudden when other people who are not fans of him watch him get KO'd? Nah, not buying it. The only difference here is that its socially unacceptable to cheer when a guy gets hurt on your team. But its okay to cheer when the Safety on your team destroys a WR coming across the middle. Well, until he gets carted off the field with an injury. Then we all cheer for him to get better even though we were all cheering for the big hit we just saw seconds earlier. Society is funny SMH.
You cant compare football to boxing/MMA, not all contact sports are the same. The only point in those are to knock the other guy out or hurt him so bad that he taps out.
