He's certainly not a thug, and I didn't think his Erin Andrews interview was as bad as everyone seems to think. Totally cocky and lacking in humility but also emotionally charged after making the winning play. But.....he continued the tirade well into the press conference, after he had dresed and showered, calling Crabtree mediocre at best. Just from a class stand point, he should have moved on. He should have said, "Let's talk about the Broncos and that game." I felt like sticking with the Crabtree line showed a lack of character. Michael Jordan was really cocky about his own play but I don't remember him, in the calm of an after game press conference after his team had won, calling out players on the other team for playing poorly (in his estimation).
OT- Thoughts on Richard Sherman interview
I missed this after the game, but I think the issue isn't that he was emotional, but that (a) he really was super-amped up and didn't seem able/willing to calm down a bit for an interview, (b) he seemed SUPER pissed about something but wouldn't go into any detail, which makes him look like a crazy person ranting about voices, and (c) because he's had a bit of history getting into verbal confrontations plus the overturned violation of the league's drug abuse policy, it's hard to treat this as an isolated incident of a guy being emotional.
Personally, it's a football game. Guys get amped up. I wouldn't necessarily want to use him as an example for young kids to emulate, but there are worse people in the league by the long shot. Kind of a nothing controversy.
classless and childish. What an embarrassment to the league.
He should have thanked Kraepernick for underthrowing the ball and not throwing it high and outside to the back pile on. If Kraepernick did that it would have been six. Maybe CK should spend more time on fusball than making sure the bill on his ball cap is flat as a board.
The only thing worse than a poor loser is a poor winner. My wife and I were yelled at by a Sparty at Krogers just the other day. This guy riding around in the electric cart Krogers supplies handycap folks with screams Go Green! Go Spartans!, after he looked at my UM ballcap I was sportin. I caught up with him and said the poor loser quote to him and he seemed to actually feel bad for being such a tool. So being humble and respectful after a big win or a beat down speaks volumes to me. Go Blue!!!
