Jay Cutler has been taking some heat over the past few days after it appeared that he swore at Chicago Bears fans on his way to the locker room before halftime of a win over the Carolina Panthers. The Bears offense had played poorly and the fans were booing, so it made sense to think that. Of course, Cutler denied blasting the fans and said he was simply angry with the way he and his teammates played. But if he was swearing at the fans and letting them know how he felt about their boos, Brian Urlacher would have had no problem with it. “If the fans want to boo, why can’t we say what we want to say?” Urlacher said on the Waddle and Silvy Show this week. “They’re allowed to say what they want, so can we.” Urlacher also acknowledged that the fans had every right to boo and that the only way to stop the boos is to play better, so he clearly understands where the fans are coming from. As for the fans being able to say what they want, it’s important to remember that they are paying customers. The players are the ones getting paid. Your boss may be allowed to say whatever he or she wants in the workplace, but you may not have the same luxury. The money fans pay to get into a game goes toward the players’ paychecks. Fans buy tickets hoping to see a win, but the players are getting paid win or lose. That, to me, gives the fans the right to say whatever they want while the players tune them out.
