Clark Hunt issues statement to Chiefs' fans

National Football Post

Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt issued a statement to fans on Wednesday regarding comments made by tackle Eric Winston following Sunday's game.

Winston came to the defense of quarterback Matt Cassel, chastising some Chiefs fans who cheered when Cassel was knocked out of the game.

On Wednesday, the Chiefs owner weighed in on the subject with a statement issued on the matter.

"Over the last few days, there has been a lot of talk about our fans, and I feel like it’s important to set the record straight.

"I know our fans. They are passionate, hardworking, loyal, educated football fans, and they are the heart and soul of the Arrowhead experience. They know cheering an injury to anyone in any stadium is unacceptable.

"I want to make it perfectly clear:

"A small few who may have cheered when Matt went down do not accurately represent the best fans in the National Football League. Period."
