TEMPE Ariz — Less than 24 hours after experienci

center_img 0 Comments   Share   “I mean it wasn’t the right thing,” Bell said. “And even their players were trying to get them to stop, but they just kept going. Finally the crowd stopped, but I don’t think they knew to what extent [the injury was].”Sadly, Sunday’s poor fan behavior was not limited to the Bay Area. Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was forced to leave his team’s 38-16 loss to the St. Louis Rams after being taken down awkwardly on a sack by Chris Long in the third quarter. Instead of the type of silence that normally fills a stadium after a player on the home team goes down, Houston fans could be heard cheering loudly as the struggling quarterback was tended to on the Reliant Stadium turf.The uncomfortable display left notable players on the Texans — Brian Cushing and Andre Johnson — to call the situation “barbaric” and “messed up.”Bell was asked whether or not he believed the two incidents were indicative of a disconnect between fans and players in terms of the severity of injuries sustained on the field, and the Cardinals safety didn’t brush the question aside.“I don’t think [fans understand the severity of injuries], especially when it’s in your own stadium, especially with a guy that you’ve been cheering year after year,” Bell said in reference to the Schaub incident. “I think it was disrespectful to treat him that way, especially when he’s on the ground and the extent of the injury isn’t known. That’s a tough situation.” – / 22 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img
