The Giants-Jaguars game on Sunday at the Meadowlands featured a big second half comeback by the Giants. They were down 17-6 at halftime and outscored Jacksonville 18-3 in the second half to get the win. Apparently the fans were not pleased with New York’s performance in the first half and let the players hear it with boos.
Giants safety Antrel Rolle, who signed with the team in the off-season, said on WFAN he didn’t appreciate the boos, especially given that the Giants came back to win. Asked what he thought about the boos, he said “We’re not going to always have those dominant, blowout games. We’re not going to win each and every game. We need (the fans) to have confidence as we have confidence in ourselves. … You don’t boo your team. I don’t care what the situation is. You don’t boo your team.”
The hosts of course justified the behavior by saying, hey it’s New York — that’s the way things are. I don’t understand why fans aren’t accountable for anything. The team wasn’t playing well at the half but they wound up winning. Maybe reserve the boos next time until the team has actually lost, how does that sound?Google+
