Fans suffer range of emotions after Aaron Rodgers breaks collarbone
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Sports grief is something therapists know well. Watching your favorite team can include highs and lows and Aaron Rodger's injury yesterday was certainly a blow for many fans who had high hopes for this season.
Dr. John Ernst, who has been in practice in West Allis for 35 years, says feeling extremely sad or frustrated can be a normal reaction when you watch your favorite player get hurt.
He says there are two simple steps that fans can do to help fight the stress. First, think positively about the future. Second, don't be afraid to share your feelings.
"Be able to talk with friends and other people who are sports fans to get it out and normalize it so the person doesn't feel they're the only ones experiencing sports grief," said Dr. John Ernst.
