    You make a very good point, JWinn. No I don't think a crowd should boo all that easily. But when a team is not playing up to its capabilities (such as the first half of that SD game), then I just can't really hold it against them. And the crowd, in a way, represents the TV audience you alluded to, who cannot make their voices known at the time.

    To clarify my point, the "boo" should seldom be heard (except as directed toward officials or the other team ), but it can be effective if timely.

    IMHO.

    Yeah, I've seen it have positive effects. I've also seen it have the reverse effect.

    Criticism is one thing, BOOing is another in my book. I just wont do it. I wont even boo the other team after all these years. I did when I was a kid, but no more, not even the Raiders.

    I applaud the greats as they come out onto the field, and after they make a great play because that's what I pay to see, the greats do their stuff, regardless of what shirt they wear.

    What can I say? I'm a football fan. We all root in our own way. That's what makes us individuals.

    I dunno, I just feel I dont have time to boo my team. I dont go there to do that. I'm too busy trying to have a good time.

    I dont pay the bills. TELEVISION pays for the bulk of this. The fans are only a small part of the overall revenue of the game.

    However, we do pay, there's no denying that.

    I just wont boo my team under any circumstances. I'll yell, "What the &^%$ was that? C'mon Ash, ya gotta catch that! Rod's OPEN Jake! Hit him already!" Stuff like that.

    But I WILL NOT BOO THEM! EVER!

    To each his own. Do what you will, but I lose respect for people who boo the team and try to justify it by saying thay pay the bills.

    My $6,000 a year doesnt even cover the cost of the balls they use.................

    Actually, I have thought ever since that game that the boos actually had a positive effect on the team. It seemed to shock the team, and they morphed into something entirely different in the second half. I'm not saying that was the factor that turned the game (and therefore the season) around, but I believe it did have an effect.

    Nonetheless, if the fans are unhappy, they should show they're unhappy. After all, as I'm sure will be pointed out in this thread, they pay the bills.

Of course if you paid 1k per tix and sat next to the tunnel you bought you tix from a scalper, and do not attend games on a regular basis.

    By the way, the way they played, and were coached was disrespectful of the fans. I would not expect someone to step in fecal matter and comment on how sweet it smells.
    You are a paid professional. What ever it is you do that you get paid for makes you a professional in that profession. Your bosses are professionals. The owners of who ever you work for are professionals. Do people come to your profession and boo at you? Your a paid professional. Would you like it? Or would you be like, oh they are trying to motivate me.

    And by the way I can not attend games on a regualr basis since I do not live close enough. But I am on the season ticket waiting list. And if I ever get any, LMAO, I will move to Denver.

    And what in the hell does stepping in fecal matter have to do with anything??? You must be having a bad day. Hope you have a better day

    My opinion is that the booing at the start of halftime at the San Diego game was justified. The fans were booing the poor effort. And it was a pretty pathetic first six quarters of the season for the Broncos. They weren't getting it done and it looked like no one on the team cared. So I'm glad some fans let the team have it with the Boos.

    I was very surprised at the boos at the end of the first half during the championship series. Yes, we were getting killed and had made some mistakes. But everyone on the team was showing good effort. We just got outclassed by a better team that day. But at the half, I would have preferred some cheers of encouragement, rather than boos.

And everyone around me was cheering. I didn't hear any of the booing. But booing in my opionion is one of the most disrespectful and childish things a fan can do. Put it this way, if your child or family member was in some competition would you boo them? Of course not. And if you would you have problems...seriously.

    I pay $1,040 for my pair of tix and have been doing so for the past 20 years, and the Championship tix are extra. I expect the Broncos to at least play competitive. I am not naive enough to expect them to win every home game, and I have seen my share of losses at home. Is what I do not expect is poor performance, and that was what I saw at the Steelers game...blown coverages, Jake throwing like a girl, receivers not running routes, etc. When the defense was on the field I did my 12th man thing to the point I didn't get my voice back until Tuesday. But make no mistake about it at the half I did express my displeasure at their performance.

    I challenge any of the politically correct crowd on this thread to put your time in on the wait list, then pony up the money for the tix, watch the team perform poorly or at best like the local JV team at a first practice scrimmage, and not show your displeasure. Think about it.

    i was booing b/c our team didn't show up and thought it was cheerleading practice instead of game-time, but i guess i shouldn't boo right? i mean, they might as well have worn skirts and came out dancing and we should all cheer for them right... get your head out of your u know what buddy... this is the NFL, not cheerleading try-outs... your blind judgment would support the broncos in cheerleader uniforms dancing around... i can see it now... lelie and plummer doing ballet with you cheering them on... pathetic you think your a true fan... the real fans want to win... booing doesn't mean we hate the team, it means you guys are playing like crap and thats not acceptable in the AFC CHAMPIONSHIP game! you can keep on cheering for more 24-3 deficits at halfime buddy. keep it up true fan!

    And it wasn't 50,000 or even 60,000 at the game...There was 76,000 people there, Genius. He isn't speaking to the specific people on these boards.
    Well, actually, there were 76,000+ people at the game, but I'd say a 50-60k estimate of Broncos fans at the game would be on the money.

    As far as booing goes, there are a number of reasons that any fan - at the game or not - would boo...For example, You could be booing the Broncos because you're a Steelers fan...You could be booing the Steelers players that are making a big deal as they jump off the field...You could also be booing at the refs for the calls they were(n't) making...You could be booing classless fans of the opposing team in your section. Heck, I've even seen fans booing during the game due to security throwing a Bronco fan out...

    Booing is one of the least violent/disturbing actions that a fan can make at a game -- if the playing (or lack thereof) on the field is not up to par, then why not motivate the players to do better in the second half? As I recall, sure they were booed off the field (at both the SD & AFCCG) but CHEERED on to the field. It makes a statement and gets the players back into the game, typically.

    Not that I'm comparing our fanbases -- but also look at us v. the Giants this year. We were controlling that game -- until the Giants fans started booing their team and got them fired back up for the second half...Low and behold, we lose...hmm...coincidence? Possibly...
