Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt released a statement this afternoon concerning the drama and ongoing conversation that has taken place in the media about the team's fans and their response to Matt Cassel's injury on Sunday. While the perception has been negative as a whole about the team, Hunt's statement is intended to shed light on that image. Here's his statement given today to the press:

Over the last few days, there has been a lot of talk about our fans, and I feel like it's important to set the record straight.

I know our fans. They are passionate, hardworking, loyal, educated football fans, and they are the heart and soul of the Arrowhead experience. They know cheering an injury to anyone in any stadium is unacceptable.

I want to make it perfectly clear:

A small few who may have cheered when Matt went down do not accurately represent the best fans in the National Football League. Period.
