I've always had an issue when professional athletes take exception when the crowd boos their home team at, well, home. It's not a big issue. Just an issue. Basically, here's my belief. Give us no reason to boo and you won't be booed. Clear and simple. Go three and out ten times in a game, then expect to be booed. And mostly, the context of said booing isn't so much the team; it's a specific portion of the team being booed, if not the individual (uh hum, Bob).
What's up with all of this? C Trent tweets:
Carson Palmer said he'd like to not hear boos "for once" at PBS: "boos do not help us win football games."
One has to wonder how the subject was approached. The essence of when said fan can boo, is a sticky subject. Regardless, from Palmer's perspective, Bengals fans simply boo all of the time. And that's disturbing. Is it a fan's right? Are the fans booing when it's appropriate? Are they just going through a cycle of premeditated booing from an unchecked Cylon beacon that clicks on after hearing All Along the Watchtower?
So the next time that Palmer goes 1 for 11 for no yards and an interception, don't boo. And yes, we still love Carson as men can love another man.
