    I don't think you should cheer a guy getting injured, but they have to think that Cassel is the element keeping them back.

    I would like to think Charger fans are better too, but I don't have that much faith in People. Sad isn't it.

    If I was in their position, I definitely wouldn't cheer any player getting injured, it was certainly poor form. But I won't sit here and say that seeing a new QB in there wouldn't be welcomed.

    I almost wonder if they were cheering Cassel being removed from the game more than the injury. I don't think highly of any of our AFC West rivals but I don't see Chief fans as normally being that.....douchey

    I get where they're coming from. I've often wished that a meteor would fall on Turner's house after a playoff loss, or a loss that eliminated us from the playoffs.

    People always cheer when a player is injured and is removed from the field. If Rivers were knocked out and then had to be helped off the field, would you not cheer (at least stand up and clap) out of "respect"?

    Or was this a different kind of cheering by the whole stadium? Did they cheer when the backup came in?

    Maybe they were getting excited for Quinn? I mean if looking like a good QB was all it took, the chiefs would have their guy in Quinn.

    It's pretty depressing to find people happy in spite of a injury. I hope you guys know that a few chiefs fans being disgruntled aren't a representation for an entire fanbase. We have our share of that as well.

    I won't lie, I was happy when Castillo broke his leg last year.

    Decided, since I need to try and shake some shiz up in my big money fantasy league (first place pays out a grand) and I'm starting a bunch of injury-fills this week, that I'm going to take a chance on Tampa D against Brady "El Savior" Quinn versus starting my usual D (Houston) against the Pack.

    Here's to Quinn proving he's little more than what very little Cassel was capable of being!
