Captain was a 7th rounder.

 

Yeah thats what made me realize he was talking about Hardy, I was thinking Captain, since Sherman's a corner.

Mentioned elsewhere that Josh Thomas was drafted eleven spots ahead of Sherman (not by us, though).

I just can't agree with this and I'll tell you why.......

 

You were right about one and only one thing in that post, apples to oranges. You cant compare the emotions of an 8 year old vs a 20 something year old after a game and then on top of that, you cant compare the emotions of an 8 year olds soccer match(which im shocked to learn there was a score kept) vs someone who not only just beat a team he doesnt like, but did it to go to the Super Bowl.

 

Richard Sherman is a fiery dude as it is playing one of the most physical spots on the field. Period. Stick a mic in his face MOMENTS after one of the biggest games in his life after the opposing team had been jawing at him ALL DAMN GAME and you will get a heated response. This can happen to even the most level headed athletes. Its why i made the comment I did about those who haven't played organized sports. If you have, you would understand where he is coming from. Spend an hour plus, battling against a team you dislike, who is showing you ZERO respect and you happen to be the one that makes the game ending play? Yea, 9 out of 10 athletes act JUST like Sherman did.

What I learned about America...

 

Americans over react to some things.

 

Oh no wait, I already knew that.

...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. 

 

This is the quote of the year!

I clicked on the link and read about Sherman. I then clicked around and read some of the other articles he has written and even some about him. He is impressive. He better be ready for the big game; the sharks are coming for him and I don't mean the Broncos.

I'm not backing Sherman, he is a player who I'd want on my team, but he is ridiculous.

 

I mean, as an athlete, I would be upset when he taunted Crabtree by smacking him on the helmet and trying to shake his hand. It's just obnoxious, I don't care if he was trying to "be a good sport" because he came off as being a complete d¡ck....like "haha we won now shake my hand you loser."

 

He's kind of like Steve though, a guy most people don't understand and don't quite respect right away, yet is the type of player you want on your team.

So I guess sports and sportsmanship are no long synonymous. That old line where sports breeds character is passe'?

I guess kids nowadays have their own set of values and morals. Maybe that is why the world of sports is such a mess. Too damm many kids thinking they are more important than they really are. Where having a touch of class in the face of adversity is something you only read about in the history books.

I thought that was what the locker-room was for? A place to vent, to bitch, and to let it go. The game is bigger than you. Or at least it used to be. But then again...I grew up before selfies.

Depends on how they're coached.

 

With the 5th to 7th grades kids i coach in flag, we emphasize sportsmanship.  In a lot of places though, that's no longer true.

 

When you have POS guys like Greg Schiano coaching, bad character is no shock.

Back in the day I coached 10-11 year olds. We taught fundamentals and having fun. We only lost 2 games is 4 years. And the kids had a great time. We did lose to the same team both times, and they were coached by a a-hole and his friends who thought winning was more important than having fun. Those kids were miserable. Even when they won they didn't enjoy it. Always felt bad for those kids.

My nephew is one hellofa tennis player. He had to transfer High Schools because his coach was never happy.

Hey, I realize winning is important. But there is a right way, and a wrong way. I guess too many folks tie wins into their self worth. If they aren't winning, at any cost, they aren't important.

Yeah the NFL and national media expects these guys to perform at the highest level while remaining like zombies with no emotions.

You are correct that you can't compare them. But what is sad is that you expect more professionalism from the 8 yo than the 25 yo.

Probably because his passion isn't soccer at that age, now let him play call of duty and see what happens :)

This board is awesome. I love your city, team and passion. I will always love my hawks but I hope our teams have dynasty's this decade. I know not everybody on here loves the Hawks but it is nice to see knowledgable fans and this board sets the standards. Get a few receivers and we'll see you next year in the NFC Championship game.

 

Much Love from Seattle and the 12th man and of course Keep Pounding!!!
