Default Re: Mendenhall critical of Pittsburgh fans in Tennessee

Mendy should not be allowed to use twitter anymore...

Rashard Mendenhall tells fans they need to be supportive

Posted by Michael David Smith on October 12, 2012

Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall wasnít happy with the way some Steelers fans reacted to Thursday nightís loss to the Titans.

Mendenhall took to Twitter after the game and said that fans who are critical of their team shouldnít be able to call themselves fans, because fans are supposed to be supportive. Mendenhall didnít specify what he was reacting to, but he apparently wasnít pleased that some fans had ripped him on Twitter after gaining just six yards on six carries before leaving the game with an Achilles injury.

Seriously, if you're gonna talk trash about your team and everyone on it, don't call yourself a fan. A fan is a supporter...

The good news is that Mendenhallís injury isnít expected to be serious. The bad news is that Mendenhall isnít going to ingratiate himself to fans by telling them they have to be supportive. The Steelers have great fans, thousands of whom made the trip to Tennessee on Thursday night to see their team. And when fans travel to see their team and the team doesnít play well, complaining about it afterward is just what fans do.
