Minnesota Vikings guard Alex Boone tells his own fans to shut up

Somehow, despite losing their starting quarterback for the entire season due to injury, the Minnesota Vikings have opened up the 2016 NFL year at 2-0.

The Vikings claimed their second win of the season on Sunday night in front of their home crowd in their brand new stadium, which is certainly rather impressive.

Amazingly, it seems the stadium might actually be too loud, with Minnesota offensive lineman Alex Boone actually swearing at his own fans after the game in a bid to get them to quieten.

Speaking in an interview after the game, Boone urged the Vikings fans to stop making so much noise when they were on offense. But he may have taken it a step too far.

“[The crowd noise] was great when the defense was up, it was phenomenal,” Boone said, via “When the offense is up, just shut up. I can’t say it any simpler than that. It’s starting to screw us up a little bit."

“It’s loud, for some reason, in the stadium. There’s a lot of times where we can’t hear the center. We could barely hear the snap count today a couple times—a couple false starts, because guys wouldn’t know when the snap was going," he added.

"I’m not saying it’s the fans’ fault, but I’m just saying, it would be nice if they would shut the f*** up a little bit.”

The Vikings did win 17-14 and Sam Bradford looked impeccable under center, so it can't have been too bad.
