What's at stake here?:

1. A professional athlete being unsportsmanlike. Dick move? Sure. Set a bad example for others? Sure. Crime committed? No. Were lives at risk? No.

2. Professional "entertainer" street races with a BAC of 0.08%. Dick move? Yes. Set a bad example for others? Yes. Crime committed? Yes. Were lives at risk? Yes.

Unsportsmanlike like conduct and impaired driving aren't comparable in any way. The only salient facts in this story are highlighted above. No one has ever been killed or critically injured by trash talking. In the U.S. alone 10,288 people were killed in 2010 because of impaired driving (source). If you think the bigger villain in this is Sherman you're f'ing retarded.

Richard Sherman acted inappropriately. Argue all you want that it was adrenaline fueled or totally expected right after an NFL game, but there are countless interviews with people right after NFL games on the field and they don't yell and scream and denigrate opponents. That being said, what he did was not thuggish. He is engaging, intelligent, and very funny when I've seen him give interviews where he isn't playing "Richard Sherman the talking character" persona.

He is exactly right that people use "thug" to characterize someone and it is definitely based on skin color, dreadlocks, whatever because they can't say the n-word.

Also, Justin Bieber is a goddamn idiot that is allowed to do whatever the hell he wants because he is rich and famous and a popular 20yo white pop star.

----------
I can see why people would be upset with what Sherman did. However, you can be upset with what he did without resorting to labeling him a thug or using other dog whistle words to paint a picture that is not realistic. And, you can be upset with what he did without being racist.

On the other side, I can see why people do not have a problem with what Sherman did. Personally, I just had an issue with him attacking Crabtree. Everything else was perfectly fine and I didn't really care about the situation five seconds after the interview was over.

As for the difference in coverage, it is very striking, but I am not all that surprised. And, people that don't admit race plays a part in the difference in coverage are willfully obtuse.

Well, Sherman writes for MMQB. He said what he said to Crabtree was "good game".

Many, many people (only a few on Fark) responded with things along the line of "there's no WAY that's what he said," despite the fact that every single time Sherman's recounted something he said in the game, the audio comes out later, and he said almost exactly what he says he said.

Why do so many people refuse to believe someone who consistently tells the truth, is open and honest, and doesn't hide behind tired cliches, simply because of how they looked when they said something?

THIS!

It is what started it all.  I was watching the game like most people.  And I thought that was farked up.  Then I saw Sherman yelling at the camera (the reaction of the poor interviewer was priceless).  I honestly thought it was some kind of joke.  No one acts like that in front of the camera!
As it turns out, he really WAS pissed off, and had every right to be.  Was it unprofessional?  Sure.  But try winning the game that won the conference championship, and got your team to the biggest game of the year, and not have YOUR adreneline pumping like crazy.  I don't think he was really thinking professionally at that moment.

If the media is portraying him any differently, they are sorely mistaken.  I think it was actually pretty funny, what he did...


Beiber?  Self-entilted, spoiled rich, little brat, with abosolutely no resprect or regard for his position and the people that got him there.  Such to a point that he quite literally spits on them.

If the media are portraying him as just some misguided kid or something, they are SERIOUSLY at fault for not making him responsible for how he's acting.  I suppose it's going to take his actually physically hurting someone to get through to them.

Hm, again with the redefinition of reality.  The absolute truth in the basis for my post was wanting to know why you were so sure about your position.  Someone upthread brought up the point that at the end of the game there was a pat on the ass, a compliment and an attempt at a handshake.  You stated it was ulterior gesture.  Someone else said that they too thought it was an attempt at sportsmanship, and you asserted they were wrong.  A third gave examples of how a "good game" comment is delivered as a comparison to this event, and you said they were insane.  At no time, though, did you ever say how you found the facts to support your position, so I was/am asking you how you can manage certainty when the possibility of uncertainty exists?  It's a foreign way of thinking for me, I'm stuck with always weighing facts.

lennavan: Serious Black: lennavan: Serious Black: My swim coaches always made sure to impress on every swimmer on their team the need to congratulate the other swimmers in their heat for a good race no matter what. If they touched me out, I was still supposed to tell them good race. If I touched them out, I was still supposed to tell them good race. If they went way slower than their seed time, I was still supposed to tell them good race. The one time that I remember failing to shake hands with the fellow swimmers in my heat and showed poor sportsmanship, the very first thing my coaches told me was that I was a terrible sport for not doing so.

Say you're doing the 4 person relay and you swim 3rd.  This would be like your leg starts out neck and neck and you smoke the kid so bad the anchor doesn't stand a chance of ever catching up, so right after you touch the wall, you say "good race" to the kid you just smoked.

I get sportsmanship.  Rugby has you all beat - the home team takes the visiting team out drinking at the team bar.  But again, you're insane if you think Sherman was doing that to be a nice guy.

I'd wait until the race was over, but yes, I absolutely said good race to the members of a relay, even if we smoked them or they smoked us. I don't recall it happening in a relay, but I'm positive in my dual meets that I smoked a lot of people and would have several seconds (sometimes minutes in longer races) of waiting for the other competitors to finish. I know there were also races where I got smoked and they had to wait for me to finish. We would still shake hands and tell each other good race.

Impossible? no. I also can't say it's impossible the Earth has been visited by space aliens.

But which is FAR more likely, a 3.9 football player or another example of a cheat for grades? The numbers say the latter.


So, if I understand correctly, absent any supporting information, you assume that a person with a recorded 3.9 GPA likely cheated because he is a football player, even though all accounts of him in interviews describe him as articulate and intelligient.  I am guessing that you are therefore somehow supporting the idea that a guy who merely needs a passing GPA to play would not only cheat, but would also do so in a manner that would give him a 3.9 GPA, which would certainly draw more scrutiny than a very average GPA.

Also, I would like to see your substantiation for the idea that the numbers support that most college football players cheat.

You really can't believe anything Chief Internet says these days. He's been messing around too much with the firewireater limewire in the coconut.

parahaps: scottydoesntknow: 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.

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.


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.

kronicfeld: 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.


That was a joke on the simpsons, not a line of reasoning.

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.

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.
