Richard Sherman’s Post-Game Interview is Worth Another Look

Richard Sherman and Erin Andrews

So, the Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game on Sunday. The game was ultimately won with under one minute left. 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick lofted a pass to Michael Crabtree in the end zone. It was tipped by Richard Sherman, or as I like to call him DICK Sherman, and picked by linebacker Malcolm Smith.

Look, first of all, Sherman is one of, if not the best cornerback in the NFL.

Second, fuck the 49ers, King Dick Jim Harbaugh, Colin Kaepernick and his long, gazelle-like strides and everything else about those scumbags. The Vikings they are not. The Bears they are not. No. 3 on that list, they are.

Third, The Legion of Boom. That’s what Seattle’s secondary calls themselves. You know who gives a nickname to themselves? Someone who isn’t liked enough to have another party give them a nickname. Remember when George Costanza tried to give himself the nickname T-bone?

Yeah, this is like that.

“We’re such a bunch of douchy fucks that no one likes us enough to give us a nickname. Let’s just give one to ourselves! Yeah, great idea, fellow doucher!”

On a side note, Legion of Boom by the Crystal Method > Legion of Boom by the Seattle Seahawks.

History will remember one of those bands. It won’t be the one that includes DICK Sherman.

All that being said, the Seachickens are going to the Super Bowl, which they’ve never won. And good for them! Better them than King Dick Harbaugh & Co.

Anyway, after the game, DICK Sherman had something to say about that last play. In essence, you don’t throw on DICK Sherman, especially to a punk-ass bitch like Michael Crabtree (and we might add, with a bitch-ass throw like media darling Colin Kaep tossed).

Please tell me more about Colin Kaepernick, media! Please! I must have you inflate his statistics and accomplishments more! PLEEEEEEEASE!

Yeah, so, Erin Andrews did the “interview.” She wasn’t expecting what Sherman unleashed, which is part of the comedy. The other part is Sherman calling Crabtree a sorry receiver.

A clearly thrown-off Andrews tries to ask a follow-up, which Sherman unleashes another short tirade on. Then, Andrews starts with a third question and abruptly stops.

Huh?

Either Sherman just walked off — which would be appropriate, since he obviously just authored his magnum opus. Drop the mic, exit stage left.

Elvis has left the building.

Or, someone got in Andrews’ ear and told her to cut the interview. In which case, FOX got frightened!

“This angry negro is not appropriate for our audience! Stop the madness!”

Whichever it was, awesome!

Rock on with your bad self, Richard Sherman! You’re a total fucking dick, but we’re giving you props for this badass interview!

    Wasn’t really a big Sherman fan but I’d rather have the Seahawks in the Super Bowl over the 49ers. In fact, I liked Sherman’s passion. When’s the last time we saw one of our Packer players with that intensity. We could use a player like that. Do more research on Sherman. Didn’t use any vulgar language and the dude is a playmaker and a smart dude.

    • Andy

      His play is great but its him acting like an ass that gets everyones goat. If you go to NFL.com you cant even tell there were games yesterday, its all sherman this and that. Firey character is fine, but all this shit with trash talking to the media is tedious.

    • K.L.

      Agreed. The only people hating Sherman are bigoted assholes and 49ers fans who can’t accept the loss. I’m a die-hard packer fan and I think he’s great as long as he isn’t talking crap about the packers. He talks a lot, but he backs it up with excellent play. I have a lot of respect for him.

      And congrats to the seahawks. If only their fan base wasn’t full of dickheads.

      • Phatgzus

        And their head coach a cheater and half their D speed freaks. In all seriousness, though, congrats to Schneider, Beast Mode, Russell Wilson, and the $200,000-per-snap-man Percy Harvin (okay, in ALMOST all seriousness).

        Not so sure bigotry or fandom are the only reasons for disliking a player.

    Had no problems with the interview… so much more refreshing that the typical cliched responses from all athletes.
    Reading now that Crabtree started it all when he tried to pick a fight at a charity event.

    Fox probably got scared he was going to drop a F bomb.

  3. Ivomitonvikingfans

    When did Vince McMahon become commissioner? It is fitting for Seattle I guess. I sure as hell wouldn’t have complained had Wayne Simmons done this to the Niners back in ’95. My only fear is this will spawn legions of already entitled young football players to act even more douchey. You can be a great and passionate player without the histironics, it’s been done.

    • Phatgzus

      No doubt, pretty soon the NFL will merge with the Lingerie Football League and they’ll be playing during Halftime; shit they already hired a ref that was fired from the “LFL”.

  4. TyKo Steamboat

    It’s good for the game.

    Much like Ali & Mike Tyson.

    Refreshing to see someone speak their mind like that. It got me all fired-up yesterday

  5. Skinny

    Dick Sherman is the crazy but talented Wayne Simmons type the Packers organization needs badly again. Man this guy is scary.

  6. Table Top Pack Man

    Wow, this site is going downhill.

    “This angry negro is not appropriate for our audience! Stop the madness!”

    Way to keep it classy, Monty.

    • Phatgzus

      That’s actually a pretty spot on impersonation of the megalomaniacal Zionist piece of filth Fox Network owner and unappologetic eavesdropper Rupert Murdoch.

  7. the real russ letlow

    yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah. sounds like a little bit of roid rage. smart dude, went to Stanford, you can tell he is educated. but he and his def backfield mates seems to have a problem with PEDs/substance abuse.

  8. Tucson Packer

    To be fair, Sherman said “Don’t ever talk about me” he didn’t say don’t ever talk crap (etc) about me

    So I guess we should just um, respect Sherman and not ever talk about him, good or bad ever again, period.

        • Phatgzus

          One of the best military leaders the US has ever known, IMHO, no disrespect to Gens. Washington, Lee, Grant, Stonewall, Pershing, Patton, Ike, or McArthur intended.

  9. Shawn Iltarion

    One classless bunch of pricks beat a group of arrogant jackasses.

    Yay.

    Maybe if the refs blew another call, Seattle could win a Super Bowl. Justice, I suppose, since they had one Super Bowl ripped from them by the refs. But the Mike Holmgren Seahawks these d-bags are not. This is the Pete Carroll crew- roid rage and shit-talk extraordinaires.

  10. Nacho dan

    Way to take the spotlight away from the entire team and become a distraction for the next 2 weeks douche. Here’s his speech after the Super Bowl: “that’s my quarterback…. Sniff sniff…” TO style

  11. Cheese

    I didn’t care for the interview at first. Then I read an article on Sherman today and now I kind of like him. They said he doesn’t really run his mouth unless someone else starts talking first. Larry Fitzgerald said Sherman barely says anything to him all game. Crabtree on the other hand seems pretty full of himself, at least he did when he entered the league. I haven’t really heard his name since.

    That doesn’t mean I agree with everything Sherman does, but sports interviews are some of the most pointless, boring, and predictable loads of shit you can find. Yesterday was kind of a nice kick in the ass. Refreshing almost. His passion is something the Packers defense could definitely use.

    • Phatgzus

      I can’t say I believe the smack-talking-initiation issue, but I do believe he doesn’t try to ruffle L-Fitz'(s?) feathers, seeing as they’re pretty good buddies. As such, Sherman’s probably a pretty good human, birds of a feather and whatnot. I’ve no problem with him smacktalking on the field, especially when he can back it up, but when you turn the game into a circus sideshow/daytime soap by publicizing a personal feud, that deserves a “C’mon man”, IMHO.

    • Phatgzus

      It’s always entertaining watching Bayless get his ass handed to him, that said, Sherman sure didn’t improve his rep a whole bunch (other than proving he’s not just one of the empty-headed jock’s skating bye on his athletic talent alone), not exactly letting his actions do the talking-“The [gentleman] doth protest too much, methinks.”

      I feel bad for Stephen A., he has the look of someone wondering what in the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks he did to incur such torture.

  12. E. Wolf

    As I said before, I’d rather have a player like that who engages in these sort of antics than the lethargic bunch we have now.
    I guess winning to me is more important than decorum.

    • Phatgzus

      Agreed, I don’t think there’s a single defensive player in the history of Professional Football worth his

    • Phatgzus

      Agreed; I don’t think there’s a single defensive player in the history of Professional Football worth his salt who wasn’t at least the tiniest bit insane.

  13. Brewtown Packer Backer

    Hell yes it looked like WWF circa 1980s. Hell yes it was the opposite of act-like-you’ve-been-there-before. If we had just one person on our defense like this- playing balls to the wall for four quarters- maybe we’d be in that game with a chance to bring a fifth Lombardi trophy back to its home.

  14. Lynn Fuckin' Dickey

    Interesting that Lynch’s TD run resulted in a very Barry Sanders-esque gentlemanly handshake celebration. Cool juxtaposition.

  15. Wolfie..Woodson talked a little trash too. Remember this after a bears game. “same old Jay! Just have to be in position and he will throw you the ball!” Miss that guy..

  16. CO Bob

    CO and WA are the only states that have legalized weed. I guess this year it’s called the “super BOWL.”
