Following Sunday's game, Kansas City Chiefs OT Eric Winston gathered a few media folks around for an announcement regarding those fans who cheered when Matt Cassel was knocked out of the game.

Here is the whole statement:

"We are athletes, OK? We are athletes. We are not gladiators. This is not the Roman Coliseum. People pay their hard-earned money when they come in here and I believe they can boo, they can cheer and they can do whatever they want, I believe that. We are lucky to play this game. People, it's hard to economic times, and they still pay the money to do this.

"But when somebody gets hurt, there are long lasting ramifications to the game we play, long lasting ramifications to the game we play. I've already kinda come to the understanding that I won't live as long because I play this game and that's OK, that's a choice I've made and a choice all of us have made.

Related: Matt Cassel injury video.

"But when you cheer, when you cheer somebody getting knocked out, I don't care who it is, and it just so happened to be Matt Cassel -- it's sickening. It's 100 percent sickening. I've been in some rough times on some rough teams, I've never been more embarrassed in my life to play football than in that moment right there.

"I get emotional about it because these guys, they work their butts off. Matt Cassel hasn't done anything to you people, hasn't done anything to you people. Hasn't done anything to the media writers that kill him, hasn't done anything wrong to the people that come out here and cheer him. Hey, if he's not the best quarterback then he's not the best quarterback and that's OK. But he's a person. And he got knocked out in a game and we have 70,000 people cheering that he got knocked out?

"Boo him all you want. Boo me all you want. Throw me under the bus. Tell me I'm doing a bad job. Say I gotta protect him more. Do whatever you want. Say whatever you want. But if you are one of those people, one of those people that were out there cheering or even smiled when he got knocked out, I just want to let you know, and I want everybody to know that I think it's sickening and disgusting. We are not gladiators and this is not the Roman Coliseum. This is a game.

"I'll sit here and I'll answer all your questions for the next 30 minutes if you want to ask them and I'll take all the responsibility I can take because I deserve it but don't blame a guy, and don't cheer for a guy who has done everything in his power to play as good as he can for the fans.

"It's sickening. And I was embarrassed. I want every single one of you people to put this on your station and in your newspapers because I want every fan to know that. This is a game that's going to cost us a lot down the road. That's OK. We picked it, we deserve it and I don't want your pity. But we have a lot of problems as a society if people think that's OK.

"I'll get off my soap box and you guys can ask any football question you want."

Surprised you resurfaced.

KFC looked good at home again, a 120+ yard rusher and your team can only muster 6 points?

Admit it you cheered when Cassel went down.

Why wouldn't they cheer him being hurt? We all hoped orton would get hurt for the year last year. Why is winston crying? oh he's a chief. He'll be a great chief.

Not exactly the same thing, but we cheered when a man was laid out injured.

The Broncos are a bigger embarrassment than KC this year. Chiefs suck, but so do the Broncos...with Peyton Manning!

They clapped when he walked off the field, though.

How? we are 2-3 with the hardest part of the schedule behind us. The playoffs don't start today dud, your just bummed that your teams season is over in week 5.

The funny part of KFC's loss today was that the turnovers were made by the RB's Romeo gameplanned to limit Cassel's turnovers. It was a complete failure by the offense that cost them a game they should have won AT HOME!

In week 5 KFC still has yet to play with a lead. They showed a stat that showed how long KFC has played tied, it was like 40 minutes, and how much time from behind, it was like 3 hours and change.

EPIC! Not sure if any team has ever done this this late in the season.

The Horse's plan is SB or bust with Pay Pay. And it's clear the Broncos aren't even a top 3 team in the AFC!

PAYton is looking as bad as he did since his rookie year! 3 INT's in a quarter and a worse record at this point than he's had since entering the league (according to CBS announcers).

Your stupidity amazes me. His QBR is in the mid 90s. You mention 3 ints in one quarter without realizing he's only got 3 for the year. See how that is spun Cassel has more TOs in 4 games than QBs have had in several seasons. GTFO with this splooge

The fact Crennel has to gameplan against his own QB should lead you to the exit door in here. That's embarrassing. 40 something runs and 6 or so passes 2 ints. Hahahahabahhaabahahahaahahababahaah

Even as good as Manning is, he can't carry your surrounding cast (like I said).

Manning won't take the Broncos further than Tebow did last year.

Every Bronco fan defended cutler/orton/tebow saying we couldn't win even if we had Manning with this D. REALITY of that statement is HERE. The good news is we got 2 automatic wins coming. (kc)
