‘The Daily Show’ Hosts Debate Between Native Americans and Redskins Fans (Video)
Geno Smith Gives Angry Fan a “F*** You” While Walking Off Field (Video)
Geno Smith wasn’t thrilled with Sunday’s Jets-Lions game.
For starters, Geno Smith didn’t exactly have a stellar line. The quarterback went 17 for 33 with two interceptions and just one touchdown. Secondly, his team lost to the upstart Lions ,24-17.
That’s a bummer in and of itself. But those things happen in the course of even the most charmed NFL careers. What doesn’t happen frequently is your home field fans booing you throughout the game. And if that wasn’t enough, they backed it up with the hurtful “We want Vick,” chant. Not exactly music to a quarterback’s ears.
But while being verbally accosted by a fan in the stands on his way off the field following the game, Geno Smith responded with an angry “Fuck you.” I suppose there aren’t many friendly “fuck you”s, but you could sense some real frustration behind this.
Here’s the video:
It’s never a great idea to treat your fans like that, but it’s safe to say they had it coming. We’re just a few games into the season. Cut the guy some slack, and if you’re going to berate your own team’s quarterback, at least have the decency to do it on a sports radio program on Monday morning. It’s the polite thing to do.
