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?

I don't think it's fair to compare the NBA and NFL on this topic.  If there is a huge hit in a game, the crowd will roar.  That's the same for any team's fans.  Now if that player is a key player on the opposing team, and does not get up immediately, there will be an immediate "yes! This greatly increases our chances of winning" thought from most.  How 60 or 70,000 people sound during that moment can be interpreted as cheering for the injury rather than cheering for the Bills chances of winning.  And there are some that will cheer the injury, especially if it were Brady.  How long the "cheer" lasts is the key.

 

For the KD instance, it's completely different IMO.  The fans knew he was coming off a significant injury and was off to a hot start in the game.  When he went down, there wasn't just cheering, many fans were waving goodbye and shouting at KD.

i have unfortunately yelled at a player to quit faking an injury at a college game when the home team was rolling them and every three plays a defensive player was down, only to have player strechered of and later find out he had an ACL injury. i felt bad about that so i hope i would not cheer any injury including Tommy Boy.

Yeah that was classless what those Raptor fans did...

 

The only person i might get a LITTLE excited to get injured is Tom Brady. But I would get happy internally. I wouldn't express my excitement to the world...

 

I wanna tell my wife, F U, u dumbass beach, go SMD n STFU for TWO goddamn seconds u F'ing W**RE! , but, that doesn't mean I actually say it...

 

Oh you best believe I tell her though,

 

 

 

But in my mind.

Brady being out of the season was good news for the Bills, that's just the bottom line.  I was at that game and was happy to hear he wouldn't be playing the rest of the season.  I wasn't happy about the type of injury, just happy the odds of the Bills beating the *patsies greatly increased.  There couldn't have been many in the stadium that said "Brady is out for the rest of the season?  Oh darn, what a shame."

I bet people cheered when this hit happened.

 

He slid late... he definitely hasn't slid late since.

When a dude blows an ACL I don't cheer. I don't like seeing players get hurt, but that doesn't mean I don't like physical football, it just means I don't like seeing guys snap their neck like Ryan Shazier and Kevin Everett. It's just a game, its supposed to be fun not malevolent and malicious.

Remember when Gronk cheap shotted White? I don't think there's a fan in Buffalo that would not have cheered if Gronk was injured on the next play.

 

So yes!

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...

 

This is the point I've been making for two days.. Lets move past it people. Everybody gets caught up in the moment/circumstances. 

 

Also, if its severe, and buffalo fans have seen some awful things happen at our sports venues, we are the first to fall silent + pray/wish for the best...

I would cheer at the top of my lungs if Brady got injured! I dream of it almost every night.

I would cheer for a injury where they can continue for that game but never a major injury that would jeopardize a players career. I am still haunted that I was happy when Bo Jackson got hurt in that playoff game against the Bengals in 1991 knowing he wouldn’t be able to play against the BILLS in the AFC Championship game the next week. Never did I think then it was going to be career ending injury for him.

Not sure if anybody was there... but I was at the Bills season opener in 2008 against the Seahawks.  When the news started coming through that Brady had gotten injured against the Chiefs... there was a loud cheer that came from the crowd.....  Just say'n

We would cheer and anyone that says differently is lying. Everyone wouldn’t cheer but there is a high enough BAC in that stadium to head that route.

I would cheer until I lost my voice in the following scenario...

Gronkowski is on the sideline as a special alumni guest and standing next to Belichick.  Brady is flushed from the pocket and Ed Oliver, Tremaine Edmunds, and Jerry Hughes all converge on him at the same time, launching him off the field into Belichick and Gronkowski.  What is left is a pile of mangled arms and legs and headsets...

Thank you, great post that I hope speaks for the majority of fans!

So yes!

No! Gronk was not only wrong, he was lacking in ethics and professionalism. Just because someone is lacking don't make it right!

Well, in a NBA context, if the Buffalo Braves were one win away from an NBA Title and Jabbar blew out his Achilles, I’d be thrilled!

I'd cheer Gronk visiting on sideline during game and having a player chased off field hitting him with him with helmet destroying Gronk's knee. 

 

Does this count since he has retired?

I wouldn't cheer if Brady went down but if I was at Foxboro and Ed Oliver destroys him.....

What's your age limits for laughing?  I think anyone ages 14-60 is appropriate.  Anyone above 60, I hope they aren't seriously hurt.  Under 2...it's cute.

3-13....eh.

i cheered at the Rj Umbereger hit put on by Bryan Cambell.  I cheered a hit Aaron Williams put on a Titans wr a few years back at the end of a game. Both I celebrated in the moment and then you realize oh man he''s hurt yikes.

The clueless a-holes would.

 

Anyone with the slightest bit of respect for the game wouldn’t.

I was at the 2000 home game against the Chargers when our fans cheered our own QB getting hurt.  Let's not act like we're above cheering injuries in Buffalo.

 

I was utterly disgusted then, and I'd be utterly disgusted in the future.
