Marcus Peters takes verbal shot at fan

After giving up a touchdown Monday night against the Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters was seen yelling directly at a fan behind his team’s bench.

The exchange was caught on cameras and was aired on live TV during the third quarter on ESPN.

Prior to the game, emotions were also high when some of Peter’s teammates along with Washington Redskins players had to be separated at midfield by coaches.

Kansas City head coach Andy Reid addressed the situation to the press earlier today.

“I had a chance to see what took place,” Reid said. “We can’t go in that direction. It’s been addressed. I love the compete in the kid. I appreciate his work ethic and everything else but as professionals that’s not something we want to take place.”

While it was not completely clear what Peters said to the fan, it surely was not something that was acceptable in any form. The part that makes this whole situation even stranger is that it was likely directed at a Chiefs fan as it was at Arrowhead Stadium.

Of course, there is no excuse for a player to say anything to fans on the road or at their home stadium. But the fact that this was likely directed at a Chiefs fan is inexcusable. These fans paid money to go to the game and support their home team, and in turn they get yelled out to the very players they are supporting.

Reid did not make any further statements when asked more about the situation.
