Poor Richard Sherman. .
Fair enough--at least you're being consistent.
I find my 'consistency,' in finding humor when the trash talk is aimed in the right direction, and assuming pious indignation, when it's directed at my peeps.
e.g.: Warren Sapp was hilarious, lovable, an inspiring leader--while Terrell Owens was a classless, arrogant, prima dona.
Some might call that 'hypocritical'.
I call it part of being a FB fan.
(I should further note however, that the above applies to Sappy's days with the Bucs--not so much with the canes--proving further, that my hypocrisy in this regard, simply knows no bounds. C'est la vie ).
I'm going to eat some crow right now. Richard Sherman is the biggest idiot in sports today. I didn't have an issue with his rant Sunday when it happened but there is a horrible pattern with this clown. I agree completely with Skip that he's being remembered for his talk and not his play. He's a ME first everything and a dick to boot. Because of him, I'll now be pulling for Denver!
PS. Don't F with my boy Bayless lol
Meh...there's a fair amount of hypocrisy in any FB fan, myself included.
I'll be honest: had it been a Gator doing that in a post-game interview against f$u, for instance, my criticism would have been greatly tempered to say the least. I'd probably say something like I was "disappointed"--but probably would stop there.
Since I'm not nearly as big an NFL fan (and, truth be told, didn't have a dog in this fight--though I was probably rooting slightly for the 49ers since I can't stand Pete Carroll) and it's easier for me to be critical since I'm not as invested.
As a former athlete though, I have little tolerance for the narcissistic, "me" types in sports (or in life for that matter) and tend to be pretty vocal in voicing my disapproval whenever something like this occurs.
Honestly, I'm not a fan of really any ESPN type since it's mostly for entertainment and has precious little to do with actual journalism anyway. Part of me even enjoyed Bayless getting called out--but I think Sherman took it waaaay overboard.
And I absolutely agree that the more that comes out on the guy, the less flattering a portrait it paints of him. Incredibly talented, no doubt. But lacking in the character department. No different from a TO or "Ochocinco"--both of whom I've been very vocal in criticizing in other threads over the years.
Yet another Richard Sherman interview has popped up...
That was kind of interesting. He came off as fairly likable in this, but you could see in his eyes how much it bothered him when people picked Revis and especially when people had never heard of him. He played it off but they eyes don't lie!
Of course, it's about him.
I don't even know you anymore!!!!!!
lol....I've seen the error of my ways
Yep, he's a horrible guy - the eyes don't lie. Although you'd think someone as smart as him would have realized he was going to get exactly the type of responses in the interview that he did.
Maybe there's some other things you can find to dislike about him?
23 Reasons Richard Sherman Is Actually One Of The Most Likable Players In The NFL
Definitely more than the on air bravado to him. I'm not sure why he pushes that side of himself so hard, but he'd be better off toning it down a bit.
He deserves a huge pay day on his next contract.
His on field ability cannot be questioned. Dudes a stud.
Gonna be a great matchup between Sherman and demarious Thomas!
I don't agree. Having watched his interview with Rachel Nichols he's a switch kind of guy. Inside those lines he is an animal. A beast that refuses to be stopped. You could see it in the outburst.
Off the field he's a great, likeable guy. He's sorry for what he said. It was in the heat of the moment during an emotional time. We all need to get a grip and stop acting like he's some evil thug which he isn't.
Meanwhile other celebrities are actually endangered peoples' lives with their antic and we couldn't give less of a crap and think of it as some type of antics. Something's wrong with society.
Never said he was a thug. However he is a dick and has been multiple times without being provoked. I'd like to say some of that is age but I'm only 8 years older and I've never acted that way for no reason. With all his me talk it makes you wonder if the things he does off the field for charities and what not are for the right reasons or just to boost his name more. I agree with you on the celebrity and society comments but I don't fall under those categories.
Call me a bad guy, but I like him. Then again, I always liked the heels better. Funnier and more interesting.
I bet he gets lit up by Thomas.
