(Bleacher Report)   One Seahawks fan possibly could have thrown around ten pieces of popcorn down on Navarro Bowman as he was carted off the field. This naturally means all Seahawks fans are the worst people ever and that Peyton Manning will be on Mount Rushmore   (bleacherreport.com) divider line 358

This is why NFL players should be allowed to carry guns on or off the field.  Popcorn defense, baby, popcorn.  It wasn't just ten pieces either, subby, I counted the pixels and there must have been at least twelve pieces tossed at him.

/one replay of Bowman's ankle was sickening
//two replays was cruel and unusual punishment
///all Fox had to do was cut to Bowman laying on the ground with the ball in his hands to make the point that the refs blew the call.

BTW, I'm sure it was actually thrown...but that amount could've fallen out because it was on the ground and the person moved their foot when they got back up after sitting for the injury timeout and it fell over.

I respect the 49ers a lot more today than I did yesterday. That was a great game.

well that and the fact that they are still defending Sherman's asshole antics, not to mention they were whining about their last Superbowl loss for over a decade leads me to Subby's conclusion about them, even if I don't agree about Manning.

THAT is classless, not a guy who gave a ten second statement at the end of a hotly contested game.

In a despicable act of sportsmanship, it appears Seattle Seahawks fans threw popcorn on San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman as he was carted off after a gruesome leg injury.

"Appears" being the operative word. Shiat gets spilled in the stands ALL THE TIME.

If that's the only video they have, they need to back the fark off. I think Seahawks fans seem overly sensitive, and I'll agree that this is completely out of proportion to reality...

Why can't it be both?

Mikey1969: "Appears" being the operative word. Shiat gets spilled in the stands ALL THE TIME.


So something got spilled over a railing exactly at the same time a 49er was being carted off the field?  Suggesting this was probably an accident is about as stupid as suggesting the actions of a single fan reflect on all Seahawks fans everywhere.

One thing I can't accept is what I read after the game about Seahawks fans throwing food at 49ers linebacker Navorro Bowman as he was being carted off the field with his knee injury. If it's true, it's beyond terrible. That's as low as it gets. I'm sure whoever did this is in a small minority of fans, because I don't think that kind of action is an accurate representation of the character of the 12th man. Navorro Bowman is a great player who plays the game the right way. When he went down, I dropped to a knee and prayed for him. He deserves better than having food thrown at him as he's carted off a field. All players deserve better than that.

-Richard Sherman

That's class.
 
2014-01-20 01:55:51 PM  
Yeah, and if that was Percy Harvin walking out and a SF fan throwing something, Seahawk fans would be completely mute about it.
 
2014-01-20 01:58:37 PM  
Sherman was taught sideline speech at illustrious Stanford University, by Jim Harbaugh. So itgnore your eyes and ears for a moment and let your brain decide if Stanford would graduate a loud mouthed prick.

Now you're asking people to prove a negative. Everything anyone has ever seen from Sherman says that he's not going to let his opinion be filtered through a PR machine. He doesn't care if you don't like him or what he has to say.

whizbangthedirtfarmer:
Oh, but Brady just said (on PFT) that the Pats "win with class."  Bullshiat.  Bullshiat.  Bullshiat.  There's just not enough times I can type that.  I don't think I've seen Brady win (or lose) with class for a few years now.  He was an absolute cock in the undefeated season, but he got a free pass.

See, the Pats do "win with class" in the sense they'll float clichés and be deferential to the media. But, they're just as guilty of trash talk and a whole bunch of garbage as anyone else during the game. I like Edelman as a player, for instance, but that dude always says something to the nearest defender after a nice gain. But, he's a short white dude so he's "scrappy". They're still my team, but I can be honest.

Sherman's a self-promoter and a loudmouth, sure, but at least he doesn't pretend to be anyone else.
 
2014-01-20 02:19:08 PM  

Digitalstrange: well that and the fact that they are still defending Sherman's asshole antics, not to mention they were whining about their last Superbowl loss for over a decade leads me to Subby's conclusion about them, even if I don't agree about Manning.


First off, nobody is particularly defending Sherman. He shouldn't have made the choking gesture, and he shouldn't have made the negative comments about Crabtree, we all agree that was not a very classy thing to do. Nobody is disputing any of that. We are just saying it wasn't as bad as people seem to be making it out to be. People in the NFL talk trash constantly. Just because most of them don't do it in front of the cameras doesn't meant it doesn't happen. Besides, the entire thing is a mix of a little of Sherman's natural adrenaline high after that play and a lot of his master plan to become one of the few nationally famous defensive players ever in the history of the NFL. It is working too....  Sherman genuinely earned his way intoStanford and genuinely earned a degree using above average native intelligence and a ridiculous work ethic. He is a smart guy, and he is playing the entire national press, and you, like Yo-Yo Ma playing a Cello. Everyone in the nation with at least a passing interest in football knows who he is and is talking about him, yet most of those people would behard pressed to name 3 other defensive players not on their favorite team. Basically he is trying to pull a Dennis Rodman.. Rodman became internationally famous thanks to similar behavior despite similarly being the best at a non-glamorous specialty (rebounds) in his sport. Sherman is following in his footsteps, and so far you are all playing into his hands.

Second, you don't have a tiny pile of shiat to stand on until you man up and admit Crabtree was at least as much of a douche as Sherman.... More so actually because what he did was an actual physical foul, not just a non-harmful gesture and some comments to the press. Hitting someone in the face after the play is over is about as douche-tastic as it gets.Once you call Crabtree out about that AS WELL, then we can have a fair discussion.

Mikey1969: lennavan: Mikey1969: lennavan: So something got spilled over a railing exactly at the same time a 49er was being carted off the field?  Suggesting this was probably an accident is about as stupid as suggesting the actions of a single fan reflect on all Seahawks fans everywhere.

You really are as stupid as I thought. Jackhole Jones sets his popcorn down, 20 minutes later, this dude gets wheeled by, Jackhole Jones stands up to see(Or someone totally unrelated to the Jackhole family), and they kick the popcorn while leaning over the railing to ogle the injured player.

OH MY STARS AND GARTERS!!! ACCIDENTS REALLY DO HAPPEN!!

Seriously, it doesn't take a genius to see how this could be totally incidental. Hell, that took me all of about a second and a half.

Incidentally, had the popcorn spilled a second and a half before or after he was being carted by, it would have missed.

But you're probably right.

Yeah, all kinds of coincidences in the world today, especially the ones that coincide with something happening worth standing up to get a better look. Whoa!!!


It's a good thing there was only a small bit of popcorn left, about a handful's worth and that while the popcorn ended up flying a pretty decent distance, the bag and/or tub didn't get knocked down as well.

Is it really that hard to admit "one dude out of tens of thousands of fans was a dick?"
 
2014-01-20 02:21:57 PM  
As a Seahawks fan, I must say that was an ugly game. A couple calls in Seattle's favor that should not have been missed. I don't think they were game-changers, but still bad to see. I had to turn away for all the replays too.

I was at that game. Awful seats, but by the time they were getting everyone out the NFL made them play the time left on the clock and we stopped and took seats in the Pound. Odd game really, on the way in we had rocks thrown at us by asshole Browns fans, and we are Browns fans. There was a lot of very rude people that day so the bottlegate was no surprise. I've been to several there, but it's not as fun as watching on TV. I'd never bring a kid there.

I couldn't agree more, especially given the stakes on the line.  I love that it came down to the last drive of the game and since I was rooting for the Seahwaks, I'm glad the Seahawks defense was on the field for it.  That was much preferable to Russel Wilson having to drive down the field on the last drive.

lennavan: The slow-mo in the second half of the video suggests he did get decked, rather than him tripping on the down marker which some people are saying is possible. That also was a dick move.


To be fair, it doesn't appear like that guy intentionally tried to do that, but he sure didn't make an effort to get out of the way either. One of those "accidentally on purpose" things.

Getting in someone's face immediately after winning in a super-contested hate filled rivalry and going "hey hey shake my hand shake my hand we're cool now right what you're mad why are you mad I did nothing wrong!" is a pretty obvious dick move / attempt to rub it in.

You can talk as long as you back it up.  Not knocking Sherman, just saying "but he tried to shake Crabtree's hand!" is missing the point.

/not that I'm even responding to the right post, just that I've seen some logic along these lines.

Meh, getting "decked" by someone in street clothes while he's in pads and a helmet, cheap shot it may be, but I'm sure he'll survive. He;;, whoever clotheslined him is probably suffering more injuries than he did.

Yeah, you're right.  Certainly, illegally trying to decapitate a player on the sideline during a play certainly doesn't deserve the classless tag.


A: "Decapitate"? Hyperbole much?
B: Maybe you missed the part where I called it a cheap shot. Yeah, I'm sure you did because the word "decapitate" gave you such a giant boner that it blocked out the screen.

I respect the 49ers a lot more today than I did yesterday. That was a great game.

As a Niners fan who is still crushed, I'm glad the game was worthy of the best division in football.

Next year, the Niners get the slightly easier schedule of being in 2nd (at least in theory), and maybe we can host the rematch.


I just heard it was an ACL tear on Bowman...I'm so happy it wasn't a career ending broken leg. He will be back

They said Griffin's was only an ACL last year too. I suspect they'll find more damage once the swelling goes down and they get in there. They didn't know about the LCL tear on Griffin until they were in surgery and could actually see it.

Is it that hard to admit that not everyone who spills a container of popcorn does so with a completely full jumbo sized tub, and then makes sure to throw the empty container on top of the pile?

No, it's not hard for me to conceive of that. What it's hard to do is CONVICT BASED ON NO EVIDENCE. Seriously, there's nothing here. Popcorn falls, there is NO context to show where it comes FROM, so you have nothing. Yeah, I've seen small amounts of things get spilled, and I've seen the container either not fall with them, or end up in a totally different direction. I've also seen people dump shiat on people they don't like. They don't usually "sprinkle" their distaste and low class.

I agree, thats how I knew Seattle would win. I told my friend all we have to do is contain Gore. Because Kaepernick cannot beat you with his arm with our secondary. Any other team, yes.

SF is the second best team in the NFL. If you guy's won I think you would beat the Broncos. I believe that Seattle and SF are the best two teams in the NFL.

Yes, what amuses me about the Sherman "controversy" is that all sorts of people are saying it was classless, etc., etc.  Well, what about Fox's endless replays of a really great player suffering a potentially career-altering injury?  What about forcing viewers to watch it over and over again, with some of those viewers quite possibly Bowman's friends and family?

THAT is classless, not a guy who gave a ten second statement at the end of a hotly contested game.

dunno, a lot of the arguments used against Kaep were also used against Young - doesn't read the field properly, habit of tucking and running if first read isn't open... i don't remember anything about touch with the ball with young, but that's not something you instantly improve overnight and as you said - is what practice is for

either way, the two INT's he had weren't because of accuracy, but more because of bad reads

I JUST FARKING SAID THAT.

When I said "cheap shot", did you think I was talking about the Seahawks player? All I said was that I wouldn't get all broken up about it, since whoever did it is probably currently more injured than the guy I full pads, a helmet and a facemask.

That still doesn't change the fact that it was a cheap shot, it just takes the "Oh! The humanity!" wailing out of the picture.

As a Niners fan who is still crushed, I'm glad the game was worthy of the best division in football.

Next year, the Niners get the slightly easier schedule of being in 2nd (at least in theory), and maybe we can host the rematch.

I just heard it was an ACL tear on Bowman...I'm so happy it wasn't a career ending broken leg. He will be back

The real crime here is them showing the replay over and over again. The guy had a family watching.


Great game 49er fans. Kaepernick has some growing to do, but he is a terrific player that I fear as an adversary.

Kap has one real flaw.  He's not great at passes that require touch/arc/loft or whatever.  Such as fade routes.  Kinda like the passes the Niners have lost on the last two postseasons.

Wilson's (and the Seahawks Offence) biggest flaw I saw last night is that Wilson running the ball is never a designed play, but always plan B once the offensive line is breached (which happens all the farking time)


Yeah, If Wilson wasn't so fast the Niners defense would've sacked, hit, and hurried him a lot more than they already did.

Yeah, I clicked on the headline on "Fark.com", and got this:

Nothing else. If you got more vieo, good for you, but on "Fark.com", that's what you get. The farking gif above, so if you want to act superior, you probably shouldn't tell me how I can get more than I actually can. Makes you look like a complete and utter liar.

As for the "journalist's account", it doesn't prove anything. Just that one guy said something. People lie all of the time, even "journalists". You've shown me no earth shattering evidence that proves anything.

I seriously don't care about Seahawks fans, this is just rather selective video for you to be bunching your panties over.

Maybe the popcorn was thrown by a 49'ers fan. Perhaps because he was pissed at his team, perhaps because he wanted to make Seattle look bad.
Statistically it is unlikely just because the low number of 49'ers fans in attendance, but it is possible. Without more evidence you certainly have to consider that this might be the case.

Right, it's probably all a big conspiracy.  Some poor Seahawks fan had about a handful of his popcorn spilled in the exact direction and distance at the exact moment Bowman was carted by.  Then some "journalist" from NFL.com with access to more video angles and information than the rest of us get saw the popcorn spill but decided to selectively edit and post a video making this Seahawks fan look bad and write an accompanying article saying as much.

Seems risky, all it would take is a single fan with their own cell phone video of the popcorn just being spilled to ruin this "journalist's" career exposing him as a liar but then again, that's how deeply seeded the hatred of Seahakws runs, amirite?

What's funny is that, when he has time, Wilson zings it like a madman.  His pass to Baldwin and his pass to Kearse were things of beauty.  I also think he hit Tate with a freakin' laser for a short game, too.  But the 49ers are an awesome front seven, and I just don't think very many O lines can stack up against him.  Wilson saved his own bacon numerous times, and that's what makes him very, very good.  Rush him and he'll move around and make you pay if you don't get that first hit.  Let me stand in the pocket and he'll shred you.  Or, don't put anyone on him, and he goes down the field.  Although he "only" threw for 215 yards, he was hotter than I think I've seen him in the past few weeks in terms of accuracy.  If he keeps that up, he'll give the Broncos fits.

As far as Kaep, the Seahawks D seemed to challenge him to beat them.  They stacked up Gore, and they kind of lost control of the fundamentals, where he gashed them for the long runs.  Once they tightened him in, he could only get that one pass off to Boldin (which was a thing of beauty itself).  But, when he was playing from behind, one fumble and two INTs just don't cut it.  He's a completely different QB when he's playing from behind.  He gets worse instead of better.

Hell, I'd volunteer to help out but I was at the game so I didn't get to see any replays of anything. I hear Bowman should've gotten a turnover...of course, since the Seahawks wound up turning the ball over in better field position for the 49ers a couple of plays later, I doubt that had much of an effect on the game.

1) The dude threw popcorn at Bowman and it is despicable
2) Sherman acted a fool
3) Neither of those things means the Seahawks, or the fans, as a whole are terrible classless blah blah blah whatever

Stop trying to defend either. Both were bad. Sherman's was not really that bad, but it was bad. Rooting for a team does not mean I have to rationalize everything a player on that team does or says. What Richard Sherman said has no bearing on me personally. I don't need to sit here and defend him being a jackass in order to continue being a Seahawks fan. Gary Payton was a monsterous shiat-talker and Shawn Kemp was a serial-inseminator and all around idiot and I still loved the Sonics. Every team has players that fans won't/don't like...it's OK to acknowledge that they do/say stupid things. It's not a reflection on you.

The stupid bullshiat about the team and fans being "dickheads and douchebags" as Contrabulous Flabtraption squawked is f*cking stupid as well.

I mean, I wouldn't phrase it that way, but the officiating was pretty shiat.

The Bowman fumble thing (worked out for the Niners I guess), that end of 1st half personal foul, the running not roughing the punter call (if you hit a punter's plant leg as he lands on it, that's gotta be roughing), two or three generous spots on Lynch runs right around the 1st down line (giving the 1st is one thing, but not even calling for a measurement or giving harbaugh a chance to challenge is rough), etc.

What's dumb about this? You failed to keep your team, we didn't. Your fans actively tried to undermine our efforts (see all of sonicsrising.com) and failed. Add to that this incident with Bowman and it's plain to see Seattle and its fans suck.

Mikey1969: lennavan: Mikey1969: Nothing else. If you got more vieo, good for you,

I don't.  The "journalist" who works for the NFL does.

Mikey1969: As for the "journalist's account", it doesn't prove anything. Just that one guy said something. People lie all of the time, even "journalists". You've shown me no earth shattering evidence that proves anything.

Right, it's probably all a big conspiracy.  Some poor Seahawks fan had about a handful of his popcorn spilled in the exact direction and distance at the exact moment Bowman was carted by.  Then some "journalist" from NFL.com with access to more video angles and information than the rest of us get saw the popcorn spill but decided to selectively edit and post a video making this Seahawks fan look bad and write an accompanying article saying as much.

Seems risky, all it would take is a single fan with their own cell phone video of the popcorn just being spilled to ruin this "journalist's" career exposing him as a liar but then again, that's how deeply seeded the hatred of Seahakws runs, amirite?

GO HAWKS WOO

You're reading WAY too much into all of this...


Says the guy who thinks this is all an easily explained conspiracy against Seahawks fans.

I do see and agree with some of the points both you and CF have made, but for you to say "it's just a football game" is laughable.

A few months ago on your other Fark handle you were still whining about SB XL.   Now that the Seahawks got some incorrect calls in your favor, it's "just a football game."

Believe me, if Terry MacAuley makes an incorrect call in the SB in a couple of weeks, everyone knows that you and everyone else will be whining.

Steal, your owners wanted to sell. The intention was to move the team to Seattle all along because you guys will not build an arena for them. When the Sonics were sold we were told the intention was to stay in Seattle, while they were behind closed doors already trying to move the team. The fans got screwed here buddy.

We were screwed by bad ownership, much like Sacramento almost was. The fans had nothing to do with that. Just as it would have been in Sacramento. Then one guy throws popcorn and now all Seattle fans suck or are "dickheads and douchebags"? Perspective is not your stong-suit.

Shame Us: Sherman's was not really that bad, but it was bad. Rooting for a team does not mean I have to rationalize everything a player on that team does or says. What Richard Sherman said has no bearing on me personally. I don't need to sit here and defend him being a jackass in order to continue being a Seahawks fan.


And I wouldn't have to be a Seahawks fan to defend Richard Sherman. Look, we can't have everyone out there acting like that, but we can't have everyone out there being Russell Wilson. Some people love the choir-boy type stuff and never saying anything bad, some people like a guy who mixes it up. I like both - you need to have a balance, and sports are better when there's genuine dislike between players and teams.

A thing we should really be talking about is how "Class" requires you to say things you don't really believe if you're a certain type of person - which is lying, at least emotionally. We want people out here lying all the time so we can pretend that the NFL is this happy wonderful land where everyone is bestest pals and no one swears and no one takes PEDs (except the Seahawks, of course). Who cares that Crabtree cut the normal healing time for an Achilles tear in half? Totes normal. Ray Lewis takes "deer antler spray." Okay. Every NFL player is just superhuman with recovery (except Percy Harvin).

Sh*t like Incognito/Martin happens and everyone loses their damn minds even when basically everyone agrees that that's just how football players talk to each other for the most part. This happens and people actually HEAR the trash talk and everyone cries. What do you think Anquan Boldin's saying when he makes a catch then headbutts his opponent? "I say, sir, that was a most excellent tackle. Sorry I had to convert the first down. Better luck next time, friend!"

Dafatone: Shame Us: js34603: On the bright side Sherman's antics and your equally classless fans have really shifted attention away from the referees giving you that game. So you have that going for you.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.*breath* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAOIHOWHO;QNWU;UHBFOUWGHOU

I mean, I wouldn't phrase it that way, but the officiating was pretty shiat.

The Bowman fumble thing (worked out for the Niners I guess), that end of 1st half personal foul, the running not roughing the punter call (if you hit a punter's plant leg as he lands on it, that's gotta be roughing), two or three generous spots on Lynch runs right around the 1st down line (giving the 1st is one thing, but not even calling for a measurement or giving harbaugh a chance to challenge is rough), etc.

I don't want to get into "the game would have ended differently if..." because who knows.


I'd scratch the Bowman fumble.  The refs never blew the whistle, and if they had, it wouldn't have been reviewable anyone.  The Seahawks reacted well to get the ball before the whistle blew.  Sucks for Bowman, but like you said, the 49ers ended up better for it.

The roughing the punter was very borderline, and I think the refs overlooked it because Maragos was on the ground and prone, obviously doing everything he could to avoid the punter.  It could have gone either way, but it would be a OHMIGOD LET'S CALL IT TOUCH FOOTBALL controversy if it had gone the other way.

I did notice that Lynch got a big spot early in the game (seven or eight yard run), but that was it.  He does a good job of extending the ball over his head when he comes down (which has also caused some fumbles).

And, again, on the Seattle side, the bizarre holding penalty against Seattle, the OPI on Crabtree at one point, and the clear hold on the 49ers during Kaep's big run were all weird calls or non-calls.  To me, it evened out, as none of them directly affected a scoring play.  We can talk about how something could have happened afterwards, etc., etc.

This is the standard we have for refs in the NFL:  let's hope they only fark up the small stuff, all the better.  Keep that in mind and you'll be able to sleep at night.

Whining and discussing are two separate things. I haven't claimed that the outcome of that game was changed. It is widely acknowledged that mistakes were made. Acknowledging that and saying that the Seahawks were robbed is not the same thing. The Seahawks lost that game. Plain and simple.

Ummm...I would think that by definition, a cheap shot would be an attempt to injure someone.  I can't think of many players who would say, hey, I'm gonna totally cheap shot that guy and watch him bounce right back up!  YES!

While, on the other hand, almost any time a player gets injured, it's a cheap shot.  See the helmet hit on Harvin against the Saints.


Yet, anyone with a link of sentient intelligence would be smart enough to know that if they take a 200 lb man running past them and stick an elbow out, he's going to bounce right back up.

And no, players get injured from legitimate hits all of the time. Hell, players get injured walking across their living rooms...

The holding they're referring to was called on Giacomini and on the replay it was obvious that the Niner's D-Lineman tripped on his own feet or something. He went to the ground of his own accord. The holding call Sherman ws legit. I agree that it should have been roughing the punter and had that been Ryan instead of Lee, I'd have been pissed too. The ref's f*cked up the Bowman play, but that actually helped the Niners in the end. All in all, none of them directly influenced the scoreboard and none of them were any worse than calls made in any game all season long. Of course, everything is magnified because it's the NFC Championship game.

This happens and people actually HEAR the trash talk and everyone cries. What do you think Anquan Boldin's saying when he makes a catch then headbutts his opponent? "I say, sir, that was a most excellent tackle. Sorry I had to convert the first down. Better luck next time, friend!"


The difference is shiat talk between players versus when shiat talk spills out to the public.  I also think the trash talk should stay during the game.

IAmRight: I like both - you need to have a balance, and sports are better when there's genuine dislike between players and teams.


You have correctly utilized the words "players" and "teams."  There is genuine dislike between "players," not "people."  So you trash talk the player, not the person.  When the game is over, you put it behind you because it's a farking game.  If during the course of a game, RIchard Sherman feels the desire to inform the opposing wide receiver about the promiscuity of his grandmother, great.  But once the game is over, it's time to put it away.

The city tried to steal Sacramento's basketball team. Buncha dickheads and douchebags the lot of `em. Hope the Seahawks get crushed in the Smoke a Bowl.

Steal, your owners wanted to sell. The intention was to move the team to Seattle all along because you guys will not build an arena for them. When the Sonics were sold we were told the intention was to stay in Seattle, while they were behind closed doors already trying to move the team. The fans got screwed here buddy. Our owners, and lawmakers screwed us. Guess what idiot, that arena deal in Sacramento is still in jeopardy. So not only did they sell the tea to local owners, your city might still not build the arena. You guys might be screwed!

The Maloofs never told Sacramento the team was for sale. They tried to sell it in secret, which Seattle was happy to help with. So yeah, f*ck Seattle.

Somehow a million or so people were invilved in the sale? Get a grip, man.

The important thing is we kept our team. It's too bad Seattle fans were too inept to keep theirs. Which leads to the point of this thread - Seattle fans suck.

haha. you're either actually this dumb or a troll. Congrats.

What's dumb about this? You failed to keep your team, we didn't. Your fans actively tried to undermine our efforts (see all of sonicsrising.com) and failed. Add to that this incident with Bowman and it's plain to see Seattle and its fans suck.

We were screwed by bad ownership, much like Sacramento almost was. The fans had nothing to do with that. Just as it would have been in Sacramento. Then one guy throws popcorn and now all Seattle fans suck or are "dickheads and douchebags"? Perspective is not your stong-suit.


Please. He's a Sacramento fan. It's probably all he has.

Dumbass!!!! The fans had nothing to do with this situation Seattle or Sacramento. You are a farking idiot.

Again, visit sonicsrising.com and go read thru the threads during the near move. Seattle fans had a LOT to do with it. In fact, they handily spell it out online for you to read. Not to mention sonics fan Chris Hansen gave $100,000 to an anti-arena group in Sacramento AFTER the NBA already told Seattle no.


Moron, its the internet. people can say what they want including you! That doesnt make it a fact. The only players in this are the people shelling out the $$$ which certainly isnt the fans.

Hansen did whatever he wanted to broker a deal, how does Mentallo69 or any other Seattle fan have any influence on that. Just stop, your digging deeper in that hole of yours.

I farking loved that....and that's coming from somebody who is indifferent when it comes to the Jets.
 
2014-01-20 03:57:06 PM  

Shame Us: Dafatone: I can't quite scratch the Bowman fumble. Yeah, it was non-reviewable, but Bowman was down with possession of the ball. He recovered it. Seattle getting the ball for a 4th down was the wrong call, review or not.

As to the holding on Seattle, do you mean the defensive one? That was legit but I remember an o-line holding that was less so. The punt, to me, wasn't borderline. Hitting a guy in his plant leg is a very very easy way to hurt a punter. And it wasn't like it was well after the kick; it was as he landed. Lee limped off. Hell, the Niners couldn't even accept the penalty because they were iffy about running their limping punter back out there.

They generally went with a "let them play" sort of attitude with PI. Crabtree (and I think Boldin too) definitely pushed off, but by the end of the game, so had pretty much everyone.

I can't remember the last time the announcers pointed out three separate times they thought the refs made a mistake. And that's Aikman, who has to hate the Niners.

The holding they're referring to was called on Giacomini and on the replay it was obvious that the Niner's D-Lineman tripped on his own feet or something. He went to the ground of his own accord. The holding call Sherman ws legit. I agree that it should have been roughing the punter and had that been Ryan instead of Lee, I'd have been pissed too. The ref's f*cked up the Bowman play, but that actually helped the Niners in the end. All in all, none of them directly influenced the scoreboard and none of them were any worse than calls made in any game all season long. Of course, everything is magnified because it's the NFC Championship game.


I don't really see how you can say a play that should have been a change in possession (or, I guess, a lack of change in possession.  I mean the punter roughing) didn't influence the score.  Like, maybe the Seahawks didn't score on that possession (I thought they did but I could have it wrong) but everything kinda changes from there.

That being said, I'm not trying to get all "the refs gave the game to Seattle" or anything.  Hell of a game, well fought on both sides.  I'm not even particularlly pissed at Sherman.  If you're as good as he is, you get to run your mouth.  You just have to back it up, which he does.

robsul82: Mikey1969: whizbangthedirtfarmer: Mikey1969: It's a cheap shot, but there's no way that person on the sidelines thought they were going to injure this guy

Ummm...I would think that by definition, a cheap shot would be an attempt to injure someone.  I can't think of many players who would say, hey, I'm gonna totally cheap shot that guy and watch him bounce right back up!  YES!

While, on the other hand, almost any time a player gets injured, it's a cheap shot.  See the helmet hit on Harvin against the Saints.

Yet, anyone with a link of sentient intelligence would be smart enough to know that if they take a 200 lb man running past them and stick an elbow out, he's going to bounce right back up.

And no, players get injured from legitimate hits all of the time. Hell, players get injured walking across their living rooms...

As much as I hate the 49ers you guys were 20 seconds from taking the game away from us.

I respect the 49ers a lot more today than I did yesterday. That was a great game.

As a Niners fan who is still crushed, I'm glad the game was worthy of the best division in football.

Next year, the Niners get the slightly easier schedule of being in 2nd (at least in theory), and maybe we can host the rematch.


Just not at Candlestick. I don;t think you will have the great home field advantage if by happenstance you win the opportunity.

But when there's a big win, watch out, lol...I really wish I had saved the postgame show where they mopped the floor with the Pats on MNF in 2009.  "YOU'RE GAHBAGE!  TAKE ESPN AND ALL YOUR NORTHEAST FRIENDS WITH YOU!  PILE OF CRAP!"


And that's not even getting into the analogies to Nazi Germany and "da blitzkrieg in Poland" that night.

2014-01-20 04:39:28 PM  
Here's part of a good post from a business firm that provides servicing for Sherman's charity:

"You can tell a lot about a man about how he treats his family. This is probably my favorite thing about him. Both Branton and Richard genuinely adore their mom. It's not for show. I've had the opportunity to sit and chat with his mom and (she very much reminds me of my own mom) you can tell how great a relationship they have with one another. He's well-spoken and respectful. Oh I know that's going to get your eyebrow furled after the postgame NFC Championship interview, but I'll elaborate.

People are up in arms about his interview, so let's put it into perspective. I'll paraphrase: he said he was the best corner in the game, how dare they throw at him, and that Crabtree is a mediocre wide-out. Now, let's realize that this was just a few minutes following the conclusion of the game where his adrenaline was still rushing and he had just made the play that sealed the game... A few minutes later, he might have been more PC and a bit less demonstrative about it. Still, the word "mediocre" was the term the NFL pundits had been throwing around for a week describing some of his teammates. I assure you, he forgets nothing. If you said his car's paint job was ugly 10 years ago, he'd still remember! It was fresh in his mind. Secondly, he just made a great play deflecting a pass to a teammate on the one, and only, time they threw his direction proving his defensive prowess. As much as people want to dismiss it, every player on that field is pretty much talking trash. Heck, Tom Brady is one of the biggest talkers in the league. It's just not something you associate with him because when the cameras are in front of him, he's much more PC.

So, what everybody is mad about is the fact that he did it in front of a camera. When I pick friends, I would rather have someone that tells me how it is instead of someone who'll act one way in front of me and another in front of a camera. Let's not kid ourselves. Would he have the same level of fame if he stood behind a camera and said, "that's a great team we faced, and I want to congratulate them on their efforts?" Probably not, and frankly I don't want to be around that kind of guy. Sure, he could have taken it down one notch and Erin Andrews would have been much more comfortable, but that was the raw, unadulterated, emotion that poured out. It doesn't take anything away from how nice, genuine, funny, and caring this guy is. It just means that the term "classy" is now a term for how well you can fake your emotions in front of a rolling camera."

Is it time to talk about the game yet?  Or are we still getting to the bottom of what it means to be 'classy?'  Or 'blackness?' Or how a group of fans should act when their teams are successful?

For a group of people who biatch about how shiatty ESPN is (us), we sure do spend a lot of time buying in to bullshiat narratives.

I never played a college sport for a scholarship (just rugby), but with all the time dedicated to practice, working out, travel, games, watching film, etc.....you probably have to take the easy classes.

Seattle fans are the biggest cry baby pieces of shiat fans in the sports world.  They pat them selves on their back and steal the "12th man" from a collge team (TA&M) and claim it as themselves. They don't deserve any kind of sports team in their dreary rainy city.  No wonder the Supersonics moved.  The seachickens are a shiat franchise too, just 2 NFCC and the rest of their history has been shiat.  After they lose in the SB (again) and they can go back to being a suck ass franchise.

Be fair now. They did not 'steal' the 12th man from A&M, they paid them six figures and an annual licensing fee to be able to use it.

If it were me I'd have said, 'Wait, someone else not only already uses it, but they use it for the exact same purpose and but they legally own it and we'll have to pay a,licensing fee? Well, fark, let's just call ourselves something else then...."

But that's me. What will be amusing is when the current deal is up in 2016. Something tells me the price to use that phrase will be going up a fair amount...

I remember as a kid growing up that I heard the phrase the 12th man used frequently when describing Seahawks fans.  This was in the 80s.  It just wasn't something that was trademarked, or, if it was, it was loosely enforced.  It was only when Seattle started selling "12" products that I think A&M got upset about it.

A&M trademarking it in 1990 was a genius move on their part.  The phrase had been around for dozens of years before that.

What does it matter where the high school was at? Are you saying inner city high schools can't produce smart people? Let me guess, you wen to the best high school in the country. Obviously you didn't because if you did you wouldn't have attempted to use where his high school was located in an attempt to show that he is truly dumb.

It's pretty funny that he did this a day before a Beats commercial drops with him in it dealing with reporters basically asking him all the stuff they're going to be asking this week. And that the choke symbol was taken from Kaepernick's own Beats ad. BTW, dammit Sherm, haven't you noticed how poorly the Beats ads are working for the guys involved? Kaep's 0-3 in the stadium where he's supposed to be overcoming the fans. Garnett's in the worst season he's had for a horrible team.

Digitalstrange: well that and the fact that they are still defending Sherman's asshole antics, not to mention they were whining about their last Superbowl loss for over a decade leads me to Subby's conclusion about them, even if I don't agree about Manning.


Amazing. Another non Seahawks fan bring up the 2005 SB. One would think if they claim to be so tired of hearing about it, they would stop talking about it?

Having read the back story between Sherman and Crabtree, then Sherman's comments don't really bother me. I wouldn't have said it but I don't have that type of personality. They are two guys who don't like each other. It's kind of refreshing to hear someone caught up in the moment and not being PC. Had Crabtree made the catch and won the game over Sherman, I wouldn't have been upset if he called Sherman overrated. Then again, I find words more amusing than hurtful.

Back when Dallas was on their run in the 90's, Irvin used to say all kind of things. He's said a big reason was because he enjoyed it but it was also his job. A lot of his teammates weren't comfortable talking to the media so he figured the more brash he was then the more media time he got which allowed the other players to be left alone.

Sherman just took a big chunk of the SB media circus and put it on his self and away from his teammates who might not like talking to the media. (Lynch)

I don't understand Crabtree's comments. He said to watch the tape, Sherman didn't do anything. I would argue the opposite. They threw his way twice and one was an interception. Seems to me that's his job and he did it well.

Crabtree should be more upset with his performance. People talked all week about how a healthy Crabtree would make SF's offense way too powerful for Seattle's defense. I didn't understand how because Crabtree hasn't really done anything against Seattle. He averages less than 4 catches, less than 50 yards a game and has never scored a touchdown.

IAmRight: It's pretty funny that he did this a day before a Beats commercial drops with him in it dealing with reporters basically asking him all the stuff they're going to be asking this week. And that the choke symbol was taken from Kaepernick's own Beats ad. BTW, dammit Sherm, haven't you noticed how poorly the Beats ads are working for the guys involved? Kaep's 0-3 in the stadium where he's supposed to be overcoming the fans. Garnett's in the worst season he's had for a horrible team.


I loved that they showed Kaep getting off the bus and walking into the stadium in the pregame and there were only 2 stadium employees in the background of the shot. There are no frothing hordes greeting teams as they get off the bus at the CLink.

The only part that I'll take umbrage with is it being run with through the media as "Seattle fans were throwing food at him" which is technically accurate but framed in a way to make the fans look way worse than it was. I mean, a) it's popcorn. When you say food, you're thinking nachos or something that's going to hurt/be disgusting. and b) not that it excuses the intent, but almost all of it went on the guy walking him in, who was from the Seattle area.

It's an overreaction kinda like Joe Buck going apesh*t on Randy Moss' fake moon a while ago. Yeah, someone did something dickish, but there's a difference between one person throwing a handful of popcorn in the direction of a player and framing it as "Seattle fans pelted Bowman with food."

whizbangthedirtfarmer: Sherman has apologized, according to ESPN.


"Obviously I could have worded things better and could obviously have had a better reaction and done things differently," he said during the interview. "But it is what it is now, and people's reactions are what they are."
Later, Sherman issued an apology in a text to ESPN's Ed Werder.
"I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates... That was not my intent," Sherman said via text.


Wow. I really didn't see that coming. Must have had a nice meeting with the team brass.

Well, Carroll said it was a priority to talk to Sherman, but I think after he came down from the adrenalin and everything after the game, he started to get a little upset about it.  Sherman almost always calls out Kam, Maxwell, and Earl, and I think he realized (or was told) that he was detracting from their performance.

You're not going to get endorsements as a defensive player just via your play on the field. Matthews and Polamalu have them because of their hair. Lewis had a TON of antics. Can you think of other defensive players to recently get big endorsement deals? JJ Watt does the NFL 60 stuff, but hell, who knows if the NFL even pays for that?

Why would any one herd of them be any more mindless, drunken, violent, vapid wastes of skin than any other?
It's an extraordinary claim, and I see no proof at all, let alone any of the extraordinary variety.

I mean, I wouldn't phrase it that way, but the officiating was pretty shiat.

The Bowman fumble thing (worked out for the Niners I guess), that end of 1st half personal foul, the running not roughing the punter call (if you hit a punter's plant leg as he lands on it, that's gotta be roughing), two or three generous spots on Lynch runs right around the 1st down line (giving the 1st is one thing, but not even calling for a measurement or giving harbaugh a chance to challenge is rough), etc.

The rules indicate severity and likelihood to cause injury is roughing. Hitting the plant leg is likely to cause injury (and did cause injury in this case).

I mean, are you seriously arguing that injuring the opposing punter without touching the ball isn't roughing?

Also, I just looked up this year's rulebook.

Item 1: Roughing the kicker
.
It is a foul for roughing the kicker if a defensive player:
(a) contacts the plant leg of the kicker while his kicking leg is still in the air; or
(b) slides into or contacts the kicker when both of the kicker's feet are on the ground.
It is not a foul if the contact is not severe, or if the kicker returns both feet to the ground prior to the contact and falls over a defender who is on the ground.

They should have called on him for his interpretation of the Kaepernick kick of the ball after his fumble. Should have been a penalty and loss of down.

Hey I thought the same thing. But it says right there in the rulebook that if the contact is not severe it's not a foul. It's all in the cataract encrusted eyes of the refs.


The light contact caveat is only if both of the punter's feet are down already. That's why it's only in part B of the roughing rule.

Be fair now. They did not 'steal' the 12th man from A&M, they paid them six figures and an annual licensing fee to be able to use it.

If it were me I'd have said, 'Wait, someone else not only already uses it, but they use it for the exact same purpose and but they legally own it and we'll have to pay a,licensing fee? Well, fark, let's just call ourselves something else then...."

But that's me. What will be amusing is when the current deal is up in 2016. Something tells me the price to use that phrase will be going up a fair amount...

http://www.goodbullhunting.com/2014/1/19/5271954/12th-man-trademark- li censing-agreement-texas-am-aggies-seattle-seahawks


You know the Aggies' can't stop the fans from using it. Nor can they stop the Seahawks from raising the number #12 flag or making #12 jersies that say "Fan" on the back. All they can do is stop the team from using "The 12th Man". There is reason the license is only $5000 per year.... Because the Aggies just wanted it for legal reasons and they knew the Seahawks didn't care because don't technically have to use "The 12th Man" themselves if they don't want to. It is just nice to be able to do so via a cheap licensing agreement.

taxandspend: So going by that rule, if the refs didn't see the contact as severe, then they made the right call of running into the kick because the defender slid under the kicker preventing both feet from touching the ground?


Well the former vice president of officiating for the NFL had access to seeing the play at whatever angle and speed he wanted and disagrees with you.  And the rule book says if there is any ambiguity to err on the side of roughing.  And there's this gif clearly demonstrating the plant leg got nailed:

But you're probably right.

"nailed" is a pretty bad word for it. It was contacted though and should have been Roughing.

The rule goes like this - any contact on the plant leg when the kicking foot is in the air is roughing. If both feet are down, light contact is not a foul, but heavy contact still constitutes roughing.

Running into kicker= hitting kicking leg. Roughing= hitting plant leg or a portion of kicker's body.

https://twitter.com/MikePereira/status/150701369035202561

I'm pretty sure Mike Pereira knows the rulebook better than both of us.

What if the defensive player is on the ground and the punters kicking momentum brings his plant leg into contact with the player? That is what happened on that play.

If that had happened, his plant leg wouldn't have already been planted.

Also the rulebook states:
It is a foul for roughing the kicker if a defensive player:
(a) contacts the plant leg of the kicker while his kicking leg is still in the air

You conveniently ignored this from your same link

term 2: Running into the Kicker
.
It is a foul for running into the kicker if a defensive player:
(a) contacts the kicking foot of the kicker, even if the kicker is airborne when the contact occurs; or
(b) slides under the kicker, preventing him from returning both feet to the ground.

That is what happened on that play.

His plant leg was on the ground. That's how his ankle got jacked up. Also:
Note: When in doubt, it is a foul for roughing the kicker


Looking at the play again his foot was on the ground a split second before he slid into it. So maybe by rule it should have been called roughing, but since the on field refs don't have the luxury of slow motion and different camera angles you can't blame them for making that call on a bang bang play like that.

Bang-bang play would fall under the caveat noted in the rulebook above. Bad calls happen, sure, but accept that they are bad calls. That random elbow(?) on the sideline not getting flagged, bad call. Bowman's fumble recovery going to Seattle, bad call. Harbaugh's sense of style, bad call.

The rule clearly states if they are not sure, they should call it roughing.

Note:  When in doubt, it is a foul for roughing the kicker.  It's right in front of your eyes dude.  The ref threw the flag.  He then had to think "am I completely sure he didn't hit the plant foot?"  To that question the ref answered "yes, I am completely sure."  It was a blown call.

I promise, if you type the words "It was a blown call" the NFL will not vacate the Seattle victory.  Seattle will still go to the Super Bowl.

Oh it certainly looks like one of those "OW F*CKF*CKF*CK" things that hurt like crazy for 5 minutes and are then relatively OK. The way the contact occurred, I don't think a ton of force was required to roll his ankle like that. Just managed to get there right at the wrong time and contact right on the side of the ankle. Still, should have been ruled a Roughing penalty.

In the officials mind, from how he saw it from his position, it may have looked like he was still in the air. We have the benefit of different camera angles and picking the best angle to view it from. The official only can call it from how he saw it. And you can't honestly say that from a different angle it didn't look like he was till in the air. And the officials did huddle, and it seems that none of them saw it any different.

taxandspend: Kaepernick clearly kicking a fumbled ball away from Seahawks players...


Excellent point.  It appeared everyone missed that one.  He intentionally kicked the ball forward, illegally advancing the fumbled ball and it resulted in a SF O linemen with the fumble recovery plus a two-yard run gain.

Seattle still gets a 13th man with the much much more favorable refs when they play at home.  I think NFL refs are scared of Seattle fans.

I didn't miss that one.  I saw it and called it real time during the game.  But also the refs would have to have been convinced he purposely kicked it versus he accidentally did in the process of being knocked to the ground.  As a fan rooting for Seattle I get to conclusively say he did it.  As an impartial ref, I couldn't say that.

SlothB77: Seattle still gets a 13th man with the much much more favorable refs when they play at home.


LOL I KNOW.  Like that time the refs didn't call that holding on Sherman when it was 3rd down and the 49ers punted the ball rather than marching it down to score a touchdown?  Oh wait.

If Seattle wins this year it means that the Cardinals will join San Diego, Buffalo, and Philadelphia as Junior Members of a division. That last team in a division that never quite has enough oomph to win it all vafter all the other members do. If Seattle doesnt win then the Cards still have a chance to make Seattle the sad Junior Member of the NFC West another year. Junior Members are as of now 0-7 in Super Bowl appearances.

"Obviously I could have worded things better and could obviously have had a better reaction and done things differently," he said during the interview. "But it is what it is now, and people's reactions are what they are."
Later, Sherman issued an apology in a text to ESPN's Ed Werder.
"I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates... That was not my intent," Sherman said via text.


He made an important win all about himself.  He finally apologized because more mature and important people around him told him to stop being such a cock.  But the damage is done.

What damage? The people who mater really didn't care, as far as I know there hasn't been any response from the Seahawks or the NFL, and the people that were outraged, because of the actions of a very vocal group, have been painted as a bunch of frothing racist. Sherman has come out of this fine, especially after his apology. If anything this is probably going to get him some endorsement deals and maybe some off season commentary work.

Because 49ers fans, Rams fans and Arizona fans are just lining up to root for the Seahawks at the Super Bowl. This may come as a shock to you but we really don't like the other teams in this division. That's why our players tend to beat the shiat out of one another each time we play. My dad, the staunch 49ers fan, let me know last night he's jumping on the Broncos bandwagon.

If he isnt taking drugs he wlll pass a test. If he is it will explain why he was not "WOO HOOO WE ARE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!" like basically every player ever before in his situation and was more "YOU NEVER TALK ABOUT ME!!!!" like virtually every paranoid speed freak and roid rager ever.

Sorry, I didn't realize you didn't see the game and were unfamiliar with the game of American Football.  The (team) Seahawks played the (team) 49ers.  Richard Sherman is a "cornerback."  That means he tries to stop the "wide receivers."  Basically the last play of the game (that mattered) was Richard Sherman (a cornerback) making a play that stopped Michael Crabtree (a wide receiver that had been talking shiat about him for a long time).  So when Richard Sherman talked a ton of shiat to the camera like a dick, that was because Michael Crabtree had been talking shiat for a long time.

Now I know this is new to you and is perhaps a subject that you will not understand.  The best I can think of is to try to put you in Richard Sherman's position.  Would it be alright if every time you post I talk shiat about you for a few weeks?  At the end of it, we can see if you still feel super terrific about me or if you're kinda upset.

I remember as a kid growing up that I heard the phrase the 12th man used frequently when describing Seahawks fans.  This was in the 80s.  It just wasn't something that was trademarked, or, if it was, it was loosely enforced.  It was only when Seattle started selling "12" products that I think A&M got upset about it.

A&M trademarking it in 1990 was a genius move on their part.  The phrase had been around for dozens of years before that.


Yes. Texas a&m has used it to identify their fans going back to the twenties and has consistently since then. One other school did even earlier but they didn't really keep it going I guess.

I'm kinda worried that the Broncos are gonna get that FSU-esque win where they played no one all year but manage to eke out a win against the only good team they play.

Your_Huckleberry: Wasn't it the ex-ref that FOX uses who quoted the rule? But I don't remember the difference between roughing and running being defined by what leg you hit.


As noted earlier, apparently within the last couple years they revised the rule to say such. I already admitted my bad - the link I posted was evidently from 2011, because a google of the NFL Rulebook without the year apparently returns the 2011 one.

Oh shut up.  Where did you go to college?

Same engineering university for both my undergrad and masters.  But I sure, I is teh dumb.


Well good for you...now maybe you can objectively think about things and realize that Sherman wrote that piece himself.

You are so absolutely right- there is no way on God's green earth that a PR person composed that. No way at all.


It's not likely.  You do know that Sherman writes his own articles all the time, right?  You can frequently find him as a guest writer on MMQB...and he's excellent at it, too.

Anyone who thinks Sherman is nothing but a loudmouthed asshole, listen up:   you're ignorant, and don't know anything about Richard Sherman.  Learn a thing or two, and then, you still don't have to like him, but you need to at least recognize you're not talking about TO or Chad Johnson.

Iamright

You did not just invoke 'they didn't plan anybody' for the super bowl. Dude, the Seahawks division is better, sure. That's fine. But every team in every division 'plays somebody' in the nfl - this ain't Saturday football.

Karmachameleon

I don't want our need to learn anything about Sherman. I already know he's a great player and a smart guy. But I don't owe it to him to try to find explanations or reasons to forgive him. All I said was he acted like a jackass. For what it's worth I'm pretty sure he'd agree. I'd bet my left nut he'll say as much himself one day in print once he's got a few more years on him.

Agent Nick Fury: I guess the NFC West fans are the new SEC fans with all the "we play in the toughest conference in the NFL" bullshiat.

Maybe if one of the four teams had won a championship this century you would be taken more seriously.


What about the Rams?

Don't be so mad, guy whose team can't make the playoffs.

No worries, I was late to the party.

I watched the replay of the game last night and I have to admit I didn't notice Kap booting that fumble forward before.I don't know if that was totally intentional, but it sure worked for them and I've seen less called. Also, unlike the World Series, I think Buck was very much pulling for San Fransisco.

You do realize what people say in moments of adrenaline and what they say later are the result of two different mentalities.

Nevermind that Sherman graduated #2 in his high school and is a Graduate of Stanford.  Stanford.....they do not exactly graduate idiots at Stanford


He was a football player. If you honestly think Stanford is above finding ways to put talented idiots on their team, you are naive as f*ck.

Fox does that. I remember the game where we were down there - any play where we got away with something, 30 replays and lamentations about how we're cheating from the booth. San Francisco does the same thing, maybe it's occurring in the background of the play and they never mention it once. Crabtree fumbled in that game and there was no Mike Periera (on Twitter, he said it was a fumble and a horrible call). No replay on replay. Just a, "on to the next play!"

Still, calling Sherman an idiot says more than a little about yourself, because it's clearly not true.

Oh, and I'd like to point out that there's video of Bowman pre-game in that corner, taking a fan's sign, tearing it in half, then throwing it on the ground. So I guess we can stop pretending he's a super guy, too.

Do you have any evidence to the contrary?

Stanford is one of the few schools that has much higher entrance standards than the NCAA minimum that most schools use.

Like him or not, he is an extremely intelligent person.

Video is from 2012, and the fans were begging him to do it. According to the commenters (Yeah, I never believe 'em either) it was something obscene.

Yeah, I corrected the statement from earlier. Still, the video was shot from around where the popcorn was "thrown".

/still makes me feel less bad about the popcorn
//injury is still gross, though, and I hope he gets better soon
///maybe he'll be "superhuman" in his recovery, just like Justin Smith and Michael Crabtree =)
