Giovani Bernard calls-out fans who left early on Sunday

The Cincinnati Bengals’ comeback-win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday was quite a site to see if you stayed throughout the roller-coaster contest.

That is, if you stayed for the entire game. After watching their Bengals surrender 30-straight points to Green Bay, many fans called it a day and headed for the exits to beat Cincinnati traffic back home.

They missed quite a show, and the Bengals took notice of the fans who did stay to watch them gut-out one heck of a win. Starting linebacker and team captain Rey Maualuga commented after the game that the cheers of the fans who did stay helped the team rally late in the game.

Rookie running back Giovani Bernard took it a step further in calling-out the fans who left early and gave-up on he and his teammates:

“Well the fans are doing a great job,” Bernard told PFT Live on Tuesday.  “I mean, just being there and just supporting us, whether we’re losing or not, they’ve done a really good job.  But I was a little bit disappointed this past game where I saw some fans leave.  I was looking into the stands and saw some fans leaving once we kind of got down to the 30-14 range, and it was a little upsetting. Then once we kind of got closer, once Terrence Newman scored that touchdown, you could see those seats started to fill up a little bit.

So I don’t know if they went to get a drink or had to use the bathroom during that time, or whatever it was, but I started to see those empty seats pile up.  I’m not going to say they left, but we’ll see.”
