Found October 08, 2012 on CJ Sports NFL Talk:
Normally I start off my Monday morning with an article on the highlights of the NFL weekend.  Instead I have to begin with a low light.  I like to concentrate on what happened on the field of play.  Unfortunately I have to talk about the bad play in the stands by the fans.  The following message is intended for those who get joy from others being injured. Look I understand we all pay a ton of cash to watch these games and purchase our favorite teams memorabilia.  I'm also aware that we're allowed to Boo a player when he's stinking up the joint and I can even accept a dumb fan yelling a cuss word once in a while when your QB throws a game losing interception.  But for people to cheer because a player got hurt on the field is completely and totally unacceptable.  That's someones son out there, that's a wife's husband on the ground, that's a 2 year old kids father who may be God - forbid paralyzed.  I don't care if he is the worst player on the team or even the worst football player that ever lived.  You cannot cheer when ANY player gets hurt or injured or worse.  Give me a break you big giant losers!
