Knowing what you're going to say when someone asks you a predetermined question: Pretty elaborate, guys.

What article did subby read?

Wait, wait, wait. You mean to tell me that the guy with a bachelor's in Communications from Stanford- who's currently working on his Master's- may have planned his comments?

I thought it was all spontaneous and heat-of-the-moment, and he just happened to sell his rant like a professional wrestler. All while looking straight into the camera, speaking in complete sentences, and not using any profanity.

I thought, "It was the heat of the moment," was supposed to make us think he's not a douche.

Now, "I planned it all along," is supposed to make us think he's not a douche?

I have no idea how I'm supposed to think anything other than that he's a douche.

Look at the people you are talking to. You have a bunch of people here that couldn't talk their way out of a wet paper bag.

But the guy is smart and fully understands the game of hype and how to capitalize on the moment to advance his goals. From the way he talked about it in that video you would think he majored in marketing.

Yeah... I don't think anyone cares anymore, so I doubt that will happen.

You folks are going to eventually have to come to grips with the fact that Richard Sherman owns you.

/ And a Superbowl ring.
 
2014-03-31 02:28:56 PM
The TLDR version of the article:

"Richard Sherman meant what he said."

WOW
 
2014-03-31 02:29:35 PM
"You can kind of formulate a plan of what to execute after the game," Sherman said Wednesday during a keynote session at the Adobe marketing summit in Salt Lake City, "and what to say if certain events happen, if I intercept the ball for the game or you make a big play.

"I think if the play had happened a little earlier in the game, I would have still delivered the same message but it wouldn't have been as emotional, the volume wouldn't have been as high, the delivery would have been a lot more calm and reserved. But it would have been the same message, so it would have gotten the same buzz, the same effect. Maybe Erin Andrews wouldn't have been so scared and horrified."


Typical THUG talk.  What a THUG.
 
2014-03-31 02:33:38 PM

Rapmaster2000: What a THUG.


For the record, I don't think he's a thug at all.

But still quite a douche.

And he should be allowed all the Adderall he wants.

The Muthaship: For the record, I don't think he's a thug at all.But still quite a douche.


I don't care necessarily what people think of him, but in general, I think the term "douche" has been saturated enough now that it has no distinguishable meaning anymore. In line with how "hipster" means probably eight different things among ten people.

Perhaps you were thinking of tampon?

I am Jack's lack of surprise. It felt like he was cutting a wrestling promo at the time, so I'm not surprised to find out now that it was a work. Sherman should have kept up kayfabe and milked it for longer.

Go check out the PFT message boards and let me know if you still think that.

I suspect you wouldn't think he was a douche if he played for your favorite team.

/Fully admit I would hate him if he played for SF.

You know, it would be strangely awesome if a sports thread became completely derailed by an academic discussion on feminine hygiene products, and the use of them as slang.

Other Dallas-area douches for whom I have rooted, all the while thinking they were douches.

Is it really so hard to believe that Sherman is just a huge farking asshole?  Whichever PR firm he or the seahwaks paid to spin this, they're earning their money, at least.  So there's that.

Don't really have one.  My favorite sports team is the Celtics.  KG was a douche and he was our douche.  I understand the premise but THE HAWKS! fans are getting to be as annoying as Patriots fans.  That is bad.
