Ronde Barber didn't like Giants fans booing his brother
The New York Giants unveiled their Ring of Honor at the New Meadowlands Stadium last Sunday night at halftime of their battering of the Chicago Bears.
It was a classy event with a lot of great former Giants on hand. The fans were very much into the experience, even when former running back Tiki Barber was introduced, loudly booing him.
Barber has been critical of the team at times since his retirement, and obviously his personal life has been splashed all over the tabloids as he abandoned his wife when she was pregnant with twins.
“It reflects poorly on the Giants fans," his brother Ronde Barber told Sirius NFL Radio, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. "They were there to honor him for what he did on the football field and they let what he's done post-football come into play. I think it's unfortunate."
"It shouldn't have happened that way," Ronde said. "I heard that (Michael) Strahan gave him a hug and walked him off the field because it probably could have got ugly. It was supposed to be a joyous moment, and to have the reaction that they had for Tiki is a little bit unfortunate."
But it’s New York and it also wasn’t the least bit unexpected.
