Leonard Williams took aim at NY Giants fans for booing, during an embarrassing 38-11 loss to the Los Angeles Rams

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — By the time the fourth quarter reached the final 10 minutes Sunday, nearly all of the fans who attended the NY Giants’ 38-11 loss to the Los Angeles Rams had headed to the exits. The ones who stayed, and even the ones who hit the exits early, unleashed steady boos the product, and home team deserved throughout Sunday afternoon.

Now having won just nine of their last 35 games at home dating back to 2017, boos have replaced Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi as the prevalent soundtrack of MetLife Stadium. Much to the disappointment of defensive lineman Leonard Williams.

“They do bother me, honestly,” Williams said of the boos, following Sunday’s game. “Obviously, we’re in our own home stadium, I don’t want to be hearing boos from our own fans. I understand they have a right to be upset, as well, because they’re coming to see us put good football on the field, and we haven’t been winning. At the same time, I don’t like that.”

It’s difficult to fathom Williams’ thinking in this instance, given the fact that he’s set to make $26 million this season, and even the fans in the cheap seats are likely paying a substantial portion of their net worth — which is significantly less than his, for season tickets.

Williams says that he wouldn’t boo them.

“I don’t think anyone deserves to be put down,” Williams says. “Whoever they are. I’m not going to go up to a salesman and tell him he’s not a good person, or boo this person because he’s not doing his job, or something like that.”

It seems Williams is out of touch with the mentality of a fanbase that has experienced just one winning season since the NY Giants team that last won a Super Bowl back in 2011 walked off hoisting the Lombardi.
