    F'm if they cant take a joke.

    I have zero problem not giving a F when an opponent goes down, even when ugly. I was laughing my arse off a couple of years ago when Titans opened against the Tarpkitties and destroyed their OL for the season.

    If KB has a knee ripped off sunday he will be cheered'd - count on it

    Bad taste? Yes. Stupid? Yes.

    But it's their right and fans will be fans.

    Here's my take on this.

    If said player is holding your team back, and goes down, yea cheer, you as an individual got what YOU wanted in said player now not playing, so cheer when the scrubs fall on their face and go down.

    But cheering when A player goes down is not cool. Like if Kendal Wright went down, and someone got up and cheered, Id maybe go slap them around some.

    Houston fans aren't cheering Schuab getting hurt, they're cheering Schaub not playing.

    Not cool at all. Disgusting, IMO.

    Didn't someone get banned from here for cheering when Mariani was hurt?

    fans have done this in the past and I am sure they will do this again at some point. I will not cheer for someone getting hurt but I will cheer for their replacement coming in to the game. I think it is wrong to cheer for an injury but I will also say that players today are way over sensitive.

    I remember way back when Eagles fans cheered Michael Irvin being carted off the field. Deion Sanders (A Cowboy at the time) went to town on the people cheering. Looked for video but could not find.
