At one point I was thought he was going to go T.O. and get all weepy "that's my quarterback". He kept saying "you fans that booed, you disgust me."
"He's a human being." No, he's a football player. If a regular person fell down on the street 99% of those people would not have cheered.
"So what if he's not the best quarterback?" That would be fine if you were talking about a flag game at the company picnic. You aren't.
You are paid millions to play and entertain, not to tell fans what you think they should think, feel, do. Not just Winston, all pro athletes. Hate the citizens all you want but keep that talk to yourself in the gladiator room.
