I like players like Sherman, and hope he doesn't change. I look forward to the Manning/Sherman, Sherman/Thomas matchup Sunday.

"10. If I could turn back the clock … Maybe I deserved a fine under today’s rules, but back when football was raw and unsanitized, the same things they fined guys for now were the aspects of the game that people loved. The NFL once allowed players to live in the moment and be entertainers. I may have been wrong in my gestures, but if I had to do it all again, I’d probably do some of the same things. It was a big moment, and it was how I felt at the time."

He seems pretty insightful.  Pretty different from how he appeared in all the sound bites.

I love Sherman. While I'm not a fan of all the talk and the post game tirade he's now infamous far I have an eminence respect for him as a man and an athlete. He's incredibly intelligent and may be the kind of guy who has the influence, background and smarts to show people how off some stereotypes are.

the problem is the spirit with which he ran up to Crabtree afterwards was more mean than good sportsmanship.  Then he got on camera and sounded like a clown.

I certainly wish we had him on the Panthers while he was cheap like this (I think he was a 6th round pick). He'll get a payday soon though and I bet he'll leave Seattle.

I really don't get the objection to what Sherman said? It's not like he went off on some profanity-laced tirade... the guy got a mic shoved in his face moments after making the biggest play of his career against a hated rival and he was honest. You could argue it wasn't classy or good sportsmanship but people are acting like he ate a baby on live television.

...but I hope he isn't basing what he "learned about America" on twitter feedback he got... that's like learning about the ocean by looking in a toilet.

I hate how America has become. Someone speaks their opinion and when it isn't well received an apology is forced to be issued by their handlers. Richard Sherman was right to do what he did. These guys hit each other for three hours and then they're all expected to answer questions like Manning does and be bff's. Well not everyone is built like that. Can you imagine if Tupac released Hit Em Up if he was alive today?!? iTunes would take it down and he'd have to issue an apology out on twitter within a day to say sorry for hurting everyone's feelings at bad boy. What a joke. We all know how shitty of an organization SF is. I would have given Kap the choke sign, went off on Crabtree, went off on Harbaugh and the piece of poo that clocked someone on the sidelines during that punt. fug em all I say, this county has been watered down by pussies.

I honestly can't recall a more overblown story. The guy didn't even curse.

I don't know about Sherman, but what I've learned is, today's media have made bullying and encouraging hate quite normal. Especially when the target is a person of color.
