Kansas City Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt released the following statement to his fans in relation to this past Sunday’s aftermath in which they cheered for quarterback Matt Cassel when he was knocked out of the game.
Over the last few days, there has been a lot of talk about our fans, and I feel like it’s important to set the record straight. I know our fans. They are passionate, hardworking, loyal, educated football fans, and they are the heart and soul of the Arrowhead experience. They know cheering an injury to anyone in any stadium is unacceptable.
I want to make it perfectly clear:
A small few who may have cheered when Matt went down do not accurately represent the best fans in the National Football League. Period.
