(Huffington Post)   Turns out, Richard Sherman was mic'ed up for the last part of the Seahawks-49'ers' game, and when you listen to that audio, HE isn't the one who comes off as a complete douche. Subby, for one, offers Sherman a mental apology   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 138

Heh, Sherman's actually the good guy in this?  Media turns away and looks for the next story to scandalize.

This is still a thing?

Turns out that the NFL edited a video to make one of their major money-makers look good right before the Super Bowl.  Color me surprised.

It was still bad taste to try to get that end-of-game handshake or whatever with 20 or so seconds still on the clock.

I don't know. Seahawks had possession and were going to run down the clock.

So what was he saying here, since he's such a classy guy and all?  "Great contest, gentlemen, and if you would like a well-deserved neck and shoulder massage after the game to soothe the aches and pains of this hard-fought battle, I'd be happy to give you referral to my personal massage therapist, who, by the way is excellent and highly recommended."

No, he still comes off as a douche. For saying anything at all. Right after the play is made is not the time to come up and slap the other guy on the butt and tell him good game. If Sherman's argument is that he still needed a few minutes to cool off before thinking rationally, then why would Crabtree have been ready to accept his "good game, good game"?

It comes off more as rubbing it in, with a veneer of "I'm saying good game, did you not think it was a good game? I thought it was a good game, cause I looked in a list of games that were good and this one was in there on top, right after the play where I won the game occurred."

I've loved Sherman since his days at Stanford- and especially after his Deadspin video in New Orleans last year- but the condescending pat on the ass to Crabtree and choking sign toward Kaepernick were dick moves, and he knows it. As far as everything he did after, I think he's smart enough to know that his WWE-style rant would create a reaction just like this and put him and the Seahawks on the front cover, and I doubt he's actually sorry for it.
 
2014-01-27 06:00:10 PM

It's probably OK to call him a douche.  You aren't supposed to say he's a "thug" (which, in reality, he isn't) or a "loudmouth" (which he obviously is), because apparently, that's racist.  Or something.

Anyway, I'm not sure how this little exchange was supposed to justify his weird "I'm the greatest CB in the history of ever and don't you come at me with that meeeeee-deeeeee-ooooh-cur POS Crabtree" rants after the game, so perhaps someone else can explain this.
 
2014-01-27 06:02:34 PM

Yeah, kinda.  I sort of interpreted it the same way as when, if I'm playing poker with a bunch of friends and am the big winner, I might rib them by saying "Yeah, I thought this was a great poker game tonight, really great, and I had a great time--let's do this again tomorrow night!"  Of course, it comes off differently when you're having fun with a group of buddies than it does when you've just competed against and defeated your most despised rival.

Are you referring to Sherman as a major money maker?  He's on his rookie contract.  Top end doctors and lawyers make way more than him.

I see submitter is still desperately trying to rewrite history. Sorry, ain't gonna happen.

Nothing really more to say, everyone already addressed the major points upthread. Enjoy being the hated underdog!

As a guy who used to play rugby - for our American friends, rugby is football with no forward passing and less body armor - on multiple occasions if I had just been involved in a game like that I would have sought out my opposite number and told them what a great game I thought it was (and how well I thought he played) immediately after the final whistle. I always saw it as "when the ball is in play, you're my enemy... once it's not I hold you in the greatest respect".

Yeah but his jersey is the #10 selling in the league. He's the most popular defensive player by sales.

Jay Mohr re the "scary black man yells at hot white woman" fiasco, played raw audio of the gmae that showed two things happened before he went to Erin Andrews:

1)  he shouted "helluva game!" and i think Crabtree 3-4 times.  what a bad sportsman!

2)  the first interview he did was with ESPN Deportes or perhaps Univision;  while the questions were in spanish, Sherman said almost verbatim what he said to Andrews moments later:  "crabtree is medicore at best, don't talk about me," etc.  where was the media outrage when Sherman was shouting at the brown guy?

The rant after the game made Sherman about 1,000x the fine just by raising his profile before the Superbowl.  He's a smart guy.

They fined him the standard fine for the "choke" gesture.

When Kaepernick mocked Newton's Superman thing he voided all complaints related to future mockings against him, choking sign or not. Let it be decreed.

If he still has a problem, he can write about it on his arm.

Sherman has placed himself in position to be made a fool of on the biggest stage. Your move, Mr. Manning.

I'm trying to understand when the choke symbol started to make white people so freaking butthurt?

We had augly games back in college.....some fights, and on one occasion, 4 or 5 of their opposing fans tried to fight us after a win....which let to a quick brawl between both teams.

Regardless, I never saw anything bad when it came to the after game social.....keep it on the field.

/Amusingly enough, some of the games with most bad blood were our annual alumni vs. undergrad games.

OK, so you're a f*cking idiot, I guess.

I'm pretty sure it's not a race-specific thing to think that making a gratuitous gesture like that, to one's opponent, during the game, is pretty much the epitome of classlessness.  I wasn't aware that this was a racial thing of some kind, but I'm sure that, as a resident of the ultra-integrated Pacific Northwest, you have a keen understanding of such issues and can explain them to the rest of us.

The more I've thought about the whole thing (not necessarily by choice with how the media has beaten this horse to death at least 100 times), the more I believe that your position is correct. Sherman isn't a full on idiot. I don't care if you are a great athlete, you don't get into Stanford if you're an idiot. He knew what he was doing that whole time, from deflecting that pass all the way up to now.

When he wants to be considered as a thoughtful, intelligent person; he'll do it and he does it well (read some of the stuff he's written online as proof). But when he wants to come off an asshole, he'll do it and does a damn good job of it.

This is an attention grabbing shtick that he wanted to happen and it's working. Here's hoping he spends more time worrying about the attention than preparing for Peyton and the Broncos.

It's not racial. It's pure disrespect. And keep in mind, who was Sherman's head coach at Stanford? 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.

If running around making choking gestures is integrated marketing, then yes, he is better at it than me.  Beats are terrible, terrible products, and I have no idea how they are popular besides some rapper saying how good "his" design is.  And a commercial is NOT a football game, you know. There is a difference, please catch up.

fark everyone judging Sherman.  I talk worse trash than that after winning a game of Mario Kart against my 9 year old.  I simply can't abide anyone insulting him for being that amped up after making the play that won his team a championship.

To be fair, the was AFTER Crabtree slapped him. Still not a cool move, but he had just been slapped in the face.

Fark: getting four day old news today.
 
2014-01-27 06:39:05 PM  
This is somewhat reminiscent of the Trent Williams postgame incident last year. The assumption before the audio came out was that Sherman was taunting Williams after a win, causing the still-helmeted 350lb Williams to slap him.

Of course, Sherman was miked for that one too and had said literally nothing.

You are partiality right... it takes the spotlight off his quarterback. I think Sherman will be just fine.
