Would Bills Fans Cheer an Injured Opponent?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Yesterday's news showed footage of many Toronto Raptors fans cheer the achilles injury suffered by Kevin Durant in the NBA Finals.  Players and media we're quick to object and denounce these cheers.

 

I've never been one to cheer an injury.  But, if TB12 went down during a game in Orchard Park... Welllllll...😬!

 

Do you think the crowd would cheer?  Is he the only one who'd get that treatment?

If it were Brady, depending on the severity, I think they would.

This is just stupid. T’ronO is playing in and ahead in the NBA Finals. Opposition star injures himself while the home team loses by 1 point. Of course they’re happy the opponents best player can’t continue. Who wouldn’t be? This is just a media frenzy stunt. 

 

And it lassoed in Judman..

I don't think I would celebrate in an obvious and outward way. But I wouldn't hide my excitement that our team's odds have improved. 

 

These guys are paid millions of dollars to put their bodies on the line. They all are aware of the risks they face. An injury to any player is unfortunate for them, but I'm sure not losing any sleep over it.

They've cheered many many injured opponents over time, especially if it seems like a serious injury.

Only if it’s Brady. Jumping up and down screaming you should have retired.

I've felt tempted to maim an opponent as a fan.

 

.....hand to hand combat, of course.

    Brady takes a deep drop, Hughes comes around the end, runs up and jump kicks him right in the nuts.

     Brady is DOWN, clutching at his groin and they actually bring out the cart because he can’t get out of the fetal position.

    Not only would the whole stadium cheer, there would be an explosion of memes and gifs on here that would be shared till forever

🤓

PS. My coffee tastes better as I reread this

I would never cheer that an opposition player was injured.   That would include Brady.  That's just not the kind of person I am.   I would applaud -- and maybe stand if it was an opposition team's star player -- as the player was taken from the field in the cart just like I would a Bills player.

I would like to say no, but fans in times of high emotion do stupid things (Vancouver after they lost the cup). I probably would have been happy if Gronk had to miss a couple games right after he gave Tre the cheap shot, but I never cheer when players get legitimately hurt. I don't like KD at all but I feel bad for him as a human because that is a nasty injury.

You nailed it.  In my history of attending many Bills and Sabres games the vast majority of fans might initially cheer a big hit that might have caused the injury, but if they see a guy from the opposition go down the mood changes quickly.    People are quiet and then cheer in support of the injured player when he's taken off the field.

The scene is 2008, the Seahawks are at the Bills for the home opener.

 

Pollard takes out Brady's knee, reports he tore his ACL verberate through the Ralph.

 

Bills fans AND Seahawks fans were literally high fiving eachother. I had fans in my section buying eachother beers in celebration.

 

To act like this is mutually exclusive to just one fan base is stupid. Is it a bad look, yes, but to act like only Toronto does it...

Yeah, and during the K-Gun years, fans would boo an injured opponent, whether or not it was legit or a stunt to slow the pace.

I hate to admit this , but I was at the game when Rob Johnson got hurt and thousands of Buffalo  fans cheered when Doug Flutie ran out to finish the game.  I'm sure most were Flutie fans and wanted him to be starting anyway, but it was awful  that they were cheering when he ran out onto the field and Johnson was being helped off the field. Very disturbing!

If Oliver hit Brady so hard his helmet flew off with his head still in it yes he would get a standing ovation

The only players I would've liked to have see gotten injured by us would've been Bryan Cox and Gronk.  Currently, the only one left that is still playing that needs an injury from us would be Kiko Alonso.

I think some would have cheered had Kelvin Benjamin gotten his bell rung while wearing the blue and white.  🤭

I absolutely think fans would cheer if certain players were hurt. Especially patriot guys. Brady, Edelman, Gronk when he was playing would all get a huge ovation if injured in buffalo. There might be a few more like Jarvis Landry too. It’s the nature of the beast. Emotions are high in a giant crowd. At home might be a different story. As for Durant I personally hated to see it, guy was gonna be a free agent and get a huge payday but more importantly possibly shift the balance of power in the NBA and make some great headlines. That injury is dreaded especially in the NBA and now he’s gonna possibly miss the entire season next year which sucks for the league

Not like he would heal faster if they sat silently... But I get it heat of the moment people didn't give Toronto a chance. And drinking does make you lose your control

There have been games where Tom Brady was never even touched by a Bills defender.  I suspect he has been the best protected QB of the modern era.  If he took a hard, legal blow and got up a little damaged damn right I'd cheer as the Bills need more of those.  If he I knew he were knocked out of the game, maybe.  If he were done for the year or his career, no.  It's impossible to know in the moment the full extent of the event.    From an intimidating blow to temporary pain to lingering hurt to game, season or career ending injuries.  I definintely know the Bills have needed to hit TB (within the rules) way more than they have over the years so any such effort going forward will be greatly appreciated by me.  I'd probably cheer when he took the hit, stop if it looked like he couldn't get up and cheer again when did.

 

As for the the TO fans, its tough to know a ruptured achilles from a tweaking of a persisting injury, especially from the nose bleeds.  I judge them not.

I bet people cheered when this hit happened.

The question’s whether his head would grow back in a few seconds just like the pawn shop owner in the first Men in Black movie!?? I’ve always suspected that Tommy may be an alien. He’s been rumored to be drinking a lot of sugar water on the sidelines.
