Winston has no character issues. Contrary he has a high character calling out fans for cheering for player injuries.
"What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious
I LOVE WHAT HE SAID.. WHO DOESN'T STICK UP FOR THEIR QUARTERBACK??????????
"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 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.
"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.
"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.
but you guys may be right i haven't followed winston enough thru the years to really know but he strikes me as a bit too forthcoming on some things and i could see where it would rub some front office people the wrong way...more than anything though for me his legs don't look good to me...he just looks labored and that he's losing his knee bend when i see him...that would concern me...oh and he made $9 mil last year in kc...8 in a signing bonus and 900 k salary...pretty good take for one year of service...i saw his cap hit for this upcoming season was $6.5 mil that's not killer money for a tackle if he's playing at a high end level...they may have approached him about a cut and he said no thus the release but there may be more to it also...
and i kinda wonder i saving a mil this year or so to go use your top pick on a tackle when you have one that you consider to be so solid as is being tossed around here would lead you to believe would make much sense...
but then again i think they are leaning ideally trade out of the spot but no takers defense with that pick...we'll see...just how i see it
Bring him home! However would he play LT with us? I mean he's bigger than Martin isn't he?
by the way i don't endorse cheering any injury but if i was a chiefs fans and had to watch that guy play like ass for year after year i probably would throw stones...not cause of an injury on the field but to try and take getting him off the field into my own hands...
