Alfred Blue looked way too happy holding a Chiefs jersey after the Texan’s embarrassing playoff loss on Saturday and fans should be outraged
Houston Texans running back Alfred Blue had a good game against the Kansas City Chiefs, putting up 99 yards on 17 carries. After the game however he did something that is so insulting to fans, he needs to be cut immediately.
After the gut wrenching 30-0 loss to the Chiefs players like defensive end J.J. Watt apologized for being hurt and sidelined in the big game. Backup quarterback Brandon Weeden tried to support their embattled quarterback, Brian Hoyer, after his terrible five-turnover game.
Then, there was Blue. Holding a Chiefs jersey smiling proudly (he looks even happier than Spencer Ware, who just won the game). It was a slap to the face of Texans fans everywhere and insulting to those who paid their hard earned money to root the Texans on in their own stadium.
The only thing more infuriating than watching the team you love lose a game, is seeing a player go too far in celebrating their own defeat
Sure, this is a thing that players do for some ridiculously insane reason, but why this is a thing makes no sense. Fans love their teams so much and place their hearts on the line to cheer them on, that to proudly hold a jersey of the team that just defeated them screams of a lack of concern for those very fans that support you.
NFL fans need to let the teams know this is an aggravating display by the players and it should be stopped. The only thing more infuriating than watching the team you love lose a game, is seeing a player go too far in celebrating their own defeat, and that’s exactly what is beginning to happen with these ridiculous jersey swaps.
Sure, Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston was called a leader and the kind of guy you want because he looked unhappy holding the jersey of running back Todd Gurley, whose Rams beat the Bucs that day.
How about instead Winston refused to do the dumb picture in the first place. I for one, am calling for this post-game pose to stop. If a player gets released for it, that’s all it will take to end this insult to the fans.
