(The Wire)   One graduated from Stanford with a 3.9 GPA and showed poor sportsmanship after biggest win of his career. The other street-raced a sports car while drunk. Guess which one the pundits labeled "misguided" and which one they called a "dangerous thug"?   (thewire.com) divider line 302

Interesting read, but methinks the article cherry-picked it's quotes.  I'm sure that within 15 minutes or so, I could find a bunch "Leave Sherman Alone!" quotes and a lot of "Bieber's the devil!" ones, and write the complete opposite article.

Yeah, but his degree is in *Communications*.

From the "No one who speaks German could be an evil man" line of reasoning, if he has a college education and a good GPA, he can't possibly be a loudmouthed asshole.

Based on the mic'd up video I saw yesterday, Crabtree showed the poor sportsmanship first. Sherman went up to him after the play to shake his hand and say "Hell of a game" and Crabtree shoved him away like a crying biatch.

"The only reason [being called a thug] bothers me is because it seems like it's the accepted way of calling someone the n-word nowadays," Sherman said.

Unfortunately, he's right.

Paying players to intentionally injure other players? Whatevs man. JEEZ WHY ARE YOU ALL SO UPSET?

Naming your team after a racial slur? TRADITION PLUS MY INDIAN FRIEND CHIEF INTERNET THINKS IT'S FUNNY.

Bullying the shiat out of teammates, up to and including racial slurs and death threats? WARRIOR CULTURE WHY ARE YOU SUCH A PUSSY.

Talking some shiat about a receiver you just outperformed on your way to the Super Bowl? OH GOD WORSE THAN HITLER.

After I saw that, fark Crabtree.  During the game I just saw Sherman going off and I was like "dude, tone it down".  Now, I think it wasn't very classy but neither is most of the shiat talking that most NFL players do these days.

Bieber was legally drunk. He's 19, not 21.

Sherman took Masters' level classes, not BA in Football classes.

I can't think of a nicer, more genuine time to tell someone "hell of a game" than just after you just beat him 1 on 1 killing his chances but with time still on the clock.  Does it make any sense in your head how Sherman went from kind gentleman shaking his hand and saying "hell of a game" to being an adrenaline jacked up guy talking smack in the interview?

Hell of an analysis you have there.  Hell of an analysis.
 
2014-01-24 04:16:19 PM  
Or how about this... they both did something stupid, both realized it later, neither is really a "thug", and people do throw around "thug" too loosely.

Castigating "The Media" for how it treats news stories and then quoting primarily right-wing shock-jocks?

I watched Sherman's apology where he said he acted immaturely and was a distraction to the rest of the team.  It was sincere, non-coerced and very well spoken.  Apology accepted.

/Let's see how he reacts after Peyton receivers burn him a few times

Right after his opponent stiff-armed his handshake.

Also, that doesn't even matter. Oh wow, a 25 year old pumped up on adrenaline after a big game was loud and a bit obnoxious while endangering no one anywhere even a little bit. Surely, next you will tell me another tall tale. Perhaps the sky was blue today. What of water? Is it wet?

Didn't we already cover this pretty heavily in the Sports tag all of this week?

1. He's well-educated
2. Majored in communications
3. Well-spoken in other contexts

Conclusion?

YOU PEOPLE ARE GIVING HIM WHAT HE WANTS.
 
2014-01-24 04:18:30 PM  
Since Sherman has a Communications degree, and Justin Beiber is well.. Justin Bieber,  can we all just agree they are both bad?  Send Sherman to the frozen north (for the Super Bowl) and also send Bieber to the frozen north (deport the drunk, sizzurp, speeding, duchbag).

I have no opinion on thuggery or lackthereof. But what he was doing there was saying, "that play I just made? It won the game." The game wasn't over yet when he did it, but he was rubbing it in Crabtree's face that it was pretty much a done thing.

Had he said something that was reflective of his GPA, no one would be saying shiat right now...
/as mentioned, his GPA is not reflective of his college career

Actually, I didn't have a problem with either player's behavior. That's just football. My problem is with the guy who clotheslined Jeremy Lane on the sideline.

The game was over. It wasn't rude.

Also, when did Crabtree suddenly become an innocent? This is the guy who raged out and refused to play because Hayward-Bey was a higher draft pick.
