You know, I was at the game today. Every seat wasn't full, but there were a lot of people there.
I was pouting, early, because we couldn't move the ball & those spectacular plays just weren't happening. We turned the ball over twice & allowed the Raiders to score 14 points with little resistance.
We kept going 3 & out against the Raiders defense (as bad as ours) & I wasn't enjoying myself.
But the people around me..... they were enjoying what they were watching. They were into the game, making noise on defense, applauding, screaming & shouting "FIRST DOWN!!" when they should. The kiss cam, the jump cam, the fan cam all went around & you could see people enjoying themselves all over the place.
When Bullock hit his field goal, they cheered. When Keyshawn had a good return, they cheered. When he returned one for a TD they went wild.
The reporters decided to focus on the bad & Ben took the bait. I'm sure Ben was just as upset as the rest of us when McCain gave up his first touchdown of the evening. & the second one. I'm sure he was upset when we couldn't pick up 3rd & 1... multiple times.
I'm sure he wasn't happy when he realized the losing streak extended to 8 games.
It's cool for you to say he was right, that the fans are fickle... but he should have said, "I'm upset too. I don't like losing."
If he was honest, he would have been booing too.
