Dale Hansen: 'How Stupid Do You Have To Be To Criticize Andrew Luck?'

The veteran sportscaster lambasted critics of the NFL quarterback for retiring at age 29.

Some Indianapolis Colts fans booed as news broke that the quarterback and face of the franchise had decided to retire after a string of injuries. Or as Dale Hansen put it, "Some people are just too stupid to breathe the same air we breathe, and a lot of them live in Indiana."

Once again, Dale Hansen isn’t holding back.

The sportscaster for Dallas’s WFAA has used his platform to deliver scathing opinions on Greg Hardy, Art Briles, NFL protests and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and now he’s got another takedown on critics of Andrew Luck retiring, including Colts fans who booed the quarterback when news of him ending his career broke.

And Hansen's entire commentary:

DALE HANSEN: Injuries to players like Devin Smith and Jaylon Smith is why the reaction to Colts quarterback Andrew Luck's decision to retire is so incredibly stupid.

Luck has a long list of injuries from playing this game: a concussion, a lacerated kidney, torn cartilage in a shoulder that kept him out a year, rib and ankle injuries too. So he decides to walk away while he still can ... and fans at the Colts game Saturday night actually booed him as he walked off the field.

How stupid do you have to be? How bad does your life have to be that you think booing Andrew Luck or even criticizing him, as some guy on FOX did, is somehow the right response?

Some people are just too stupid to breathe the same air we breathe, and a lot of them live in Indiana.

But a lot of them go to football games everywhere too.

Football fans who will cheer the player who beats up a woman or drives drunk and kills people, who will cheer the player who uses illegal drugs, and who will cheer the player who cheats to win will boo a 29-year-old man who has been in constant pain for four years because he chooses his life over money.

I might be as stupid as so many of you tell me I am, but I have never been that stupid.
