It turns out Tim Tebow isn't the only Jets player with work to do to get some love from New York fans. Not long after Tebow was booed at a Yankees game, Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes sparked a similar reaction among New York sports fans when they attended Wednesday night's Knicks-Clippers game.
According to various reports, boos rained down on the two Jets when they were shown on the Garden JumboTron during the first quarter.
Per Ian Begley of ESPNNewYork.com, Antonio Cromartie was in attendance as well but was shown separately. Neither commented after the game.
When the JumboTron introduced Chris Snee of the Super Bowl-winning New York Giants, the crowd apparently gave the offensive lineman a standing ovation.
Perhaps that's a sign of where New Yorkers' hears truly lie when it comes to the NFL.
