Fans pay tickets and have a right to boo. Apparently, for a couple Chicago Bears players “true” fans aren’t supposed to boo.
What Brian Urlacher said about Bears fans went a little bit too far. I turned on the local FOX station and Urlacher was on. What he said next amazed me.
“Our crowd was loud for a minute there. The boos were really loud, which is always nice. The only team in our division that gets booed at home is us. It’s unbelievable to me. It’s not going to change.” Urlacher also said that, “They (fans and media) don’t know what they are talking about. They don’t know what goes on.”
I’m sorry, but the Bears aren’t the only team to be booed at home in their division. What about when the Detroit Lions have messed up? Or when Matthew Stafford throws interceptions? In professional sports, fans boo their own team. I guess it’s a good thing that Urlacher hasn’t played in Philadelphia where everything from sports to Santa Claus is booed.
Next is what Chris Conte tweeted “We have two must win games left. We need all the support we can get. if u aren’t with us then you are against us. Real bear fans #beardown” So true fans are supposed to cheer on and support a bad team?
Fans have the right to boo. I have booed the Chicago Blackhawks plenty of times when they haven’t been able to do anything on the power play. I guess that as a “true” fan, I’m not supposed to boo the Blackhawks or any team that messes up. Are fans not supposed to boo when in the last two seasons the Bears have gone 0-7 in December?
There are plenty of fans that care and plenty of fans that understand the game of football. There are people in the media that have played the game. I guess because they don’t agree with you and aren’t out cheering and supporting everything the Bears do, you consider them a bunch of idiots. I’m sorry Brian and Chris, but fans have the right to boo. Don’t treat us like complete fools.
Without fans and media, the Bears wouldn’t be as big as they are today in Chicago.
