It seemed like there was like a reactionary cheer, then a quiet like everyone felt the guilt, then applause when he got up and walked off. It was obvious to me and I was really disappointed in that outburst. Just being honest. But I also have to admit that I had that same growing frustration and when he stayed down, I felt that anticipation. The reality is it seems like the extremes are being represented, but I don't believe that anyone would wish that Cassel would be injured, just that it seemed without some kind of injury, they were going to stay with him regardless.

It was a pretty bizarre experience for me and my daughter. I don't think either the fans or Winston were right. But in the fans' defense, they did cheer him getting up and it I haven't heard any of the media talk about that part of it.

I don't think that Winston has had enough time and exposure to these rediculously loyal fans that have remained through the rough to address us. I take issue with that. If he wanted to say something, he should have given it a couple of days to better choose his words. None of it set well with me.
This. Bingo. Nailed it.

I was sitting near that end zone as well and this is exactly how I saw it play out. The group of people who cheered when Cassel stayed down were the same ones who tried to start a "Quinn" chant earlier in the game.
