Athletes usually love their fans - but when the booing starts, theres no love lost. Check out these sports quotes about sports fans from pro athletes like Allen Iverson, Tim Couch, Jose Hernandez and Rey Ordonez.

The best part about being a sports fan is cheering on your favorite team when they win and booing and taunting them when they lose. That doesn't always sit well with the athletes who are playing. Here's some quotes from pro athletes about nasty sports fans.

1 "It's unfair because the people booing, I believe, wouldn't want to have their child booed. Fans don't understand our lives and what we go through. They don't look at us as humans. We love the fans because they support and love the game, but at the same time it hurts when they turn their back on us."
~ Allen Iverson of the Philadelphia 76ers.

1 "If fans don't like the way I'm playing or the way we're playing, they have a right to boo us or boo me. But to cheer when I got hurt, that's a whole other level with me. I don't agree with that at all. I've laid it on the line for this team and city. For them to turn on me and boo me in my home stadium is a joke. I've worked my butt off here and it's hard to take, man."
~ Tim Couch, quarterback of the Cleveland Browns, after Cleveland fans cheered when he left a game with a concussion.

1 "They only care about the strikeout record. They are waiting for me to strike out. And what they did, that's crap. The only thing that I know is that it's messed up the way the fans did that. I am really not expecting that from our fans. But that's the way it is. I will just keep playing hard until the season is over."
~ Milwaukee Brewers' shortstop, Jose Hernandez, after fans in Milwaukee began cheering him on to strikeout so he would set a new record for strikeouts in a season. His manager ended up benching him for the last few games of the season and Jose finished one wiff short of the record.

1 "New York fans are always jerks and they're gonna continue to be jerks. When you go up there, you know they're jerks and you know what to expect... oh yeah. I take it and give it right back at them. Forget 'em."
~ Tim Hardaway of the Miami Heat describes New York Knicks' fans.

1 "The fans here are too stupid. You have to play perfect every game. You can't make an error. You can't go 0-for-4. Are we like machines?"
~ Rey Ordonez of the New York Mets about New York fans.

1 "Canadian hockey fans... They boo me every time I go anywhere. Because I play for Team USA."
~ Brett Hull of the St. Louis Blues.
