Former NFL QB turned ESPN analyst Robert Griffin III was not happy with the Seahawks fans’ behavior towards Russell Wilson.
On Monday night, Seahawks fans relentlessly booed Wilson in his return to Seattle as the Broncos QB.

After the game, Wilson said that he expected the boos from Seahawks fans and wasn’t bothered by them.
“No, it didn’t bother me,” he said. “This is a hostile environment. It always has been. I didn’t expect them to give a round of applause every once in a while, you know. So I think that – like I would say, I gave everything I had every day here. Every day. Anybody that says anything else, they’re completely wrong. I gave everything I had every day. So I know that for a fact.
RG3 took to Twitter to blast Seahawks fans for their treatment of Wilson.
It’s been a couple days but the boos for Russell Wilson in Seattle were UNCALLED FOR. Both sides wanted to move on and Russell is the ONLY QB TO WIN A SUPER BOWL in Seattle. The Seahawks got a huge haul in return for him via trade and he EARNED a better reception than that.
