Default Re: Richard Sherman's Big Mouth

I have mixed feelings. On one hand, I'm old school about demeanor and prefer players who act like they've been there before, even if they haven't. Marshawn Lynch rips off a big TD run and just hands the ball to the official and has an understated celebration with his teammates. And by almost any reasonable standard, Sherman's "interview" was over the top. It was a really punkish thing to do. It's one thing to celebrate; it's another to totally disrespect your opponent.

On the other hand, I know enough about Crabtree to know that he was probably giving as much trash talk as he was taking. Boldin is the same way, maybe even worse -- the 49ers WRs are just that way, and their coach shares some of their attributes and surely doesn't discourage it. I also saw Crabtree shove Sherman in the face mask right after that last pick. Now Sherman claims he was coming over to say "good game", but I call BS on that -- it was very likely more trash talk. But still, I think this was going on back and forth all game and these two were so jacked up by the end of the game that it took a while for Sherman to come down.

I show passion on the football field—but that’s only a small part of who I am. If you want to judge me, I can handle it.

He backs up his talk day in and day out, continually making key plays and shuts down receivers.

If he said that he bangs goats i would still want him on this team....

Default Re: Richard Sherman's Big Mouth

The dude's mouth writes checks that his play on the field cashes.

The NFL is an entertainment industry at the end of the day. Sherman entertains. He can be your hero or he can be your villain. Either way, you continue to watch to see him succeed for fail. But you watch, and that's all that matters to NFL, Inc.

Sherman is good for business. He's not getting into trouble off the field, he's not purposefully trying to injure other players, and he's about the team as much as he is about himself.

And, c'mon, we don't see great defenses with legitimate nicknames anymore.

"Legion of Boom" >>> "Bulls on Parade" as far as names go.

Default Re: Richard Sherman's Big Mouth

I can't believe how much people are talking about this after watching such an awesome game. The players say waaaaaaaaay worse stuff to eachother on the field, but they clean up their acts in front of the cameras. Sherman won the game on that play and was fired up, so he was pumped and let it show. So what?

I mean honestly, if you want classy-ness or whatever the hell people want to call it, go watch golf or figure skating. Football is an aggressive sport, and guys talk **** all the time, it's just that most of the time it's not in front of the cameras, or they edit it out of the broadcast. It's not like he was being racist or vulgar, just disrespecting a guy he schooled all game.


I also liked this article on it:

Quote:
...

We want them to utter the same banal cliches, put on a false face for television, talk like, simultaneously, everyone and no one actually does in real life. You ever wonder why 99% of athlete interviews sound the exact same? It's because everyone is acting, playing the role that countless athletes before them have played in their post-game interviews.

it's been so long since someone was actually honest, that none of us even know what that looks like.

And if you don't act that way -- a patently false way that no one truly resembles in their actual life -- then you're classless.

Quote:
Seahawks CB Richard Sherman tells me just now he regrets putting himself ahead of his team with postgame remarks: "I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates. That was not my intent.''



Chatter is Sherman approached Crabtree at an offseason charity event to shake hands and Crabtree went off on Sherman talking trash about how they're (the 49ers) going to do this & that to the Seahawks next year -- which ended in them almost coming to blows.

Who knows where the truth lies in that, but I'm less put off by the postgame comment now. But it is fun to watch a defensive trash talking get his mouth shut by being scored on -- can't get the same immediate satisfaction with an offensive trash talker because you have to wait for the whole game.

Agreed. People just have to get worked up about something I guess.

I like a player that plays with some intensity. The nice guy thing is good for marketing, but bad for football IMO.

Default Re: Richard Sherman's Big Mouth

Sherman's act is entertaining in two ways: firstly that he backs up his mouth with the way he plays, and second when he eventually continues to mouth off but his play inevitably declines like it does for all athletes. We are entertained as he goes up and and then when he comes down.

I think it sets up a good Super Bowl, too. #1 defense vs. #1 offense. Ball hawk secondary vs. Peyton Manning. EPIC.

Lots of either or stuff today.

Intensity is not mutually exclusive with being a nice guy after the whistle blows. Cliff "Captain Crash" Harris was one of the hardest hitting safeties the league has ever known and is a very "nice guy."

I like Sherman and there is nothing wrong with swagger but as with most things excess can get annoying.

Very true. Great matchup. Old pocket passer v. young and mobile. Manning could put a tombstone on doubting him by being the 1st QB to win a SB with two teams. etc.

He read the TO/Ochocinco/Broner/Mayweather guide for self promotion and is seeing it through. He's been doing stuff for attention for years. I just think the dude is a phony and don't care for him personally. Have no problem with someone who likes him though.

yeah, especially when you see NFL Films interviews with those guys and others recently where they basically admit that they were purposefully trying to hurt each other out there. Not just hurt, but take each other out of the game with injuries.

They were mean and unapologetic about it. Deacon Jones, even as an old dude, said he hates QBs and loved the NFL because it was the only time he could legally hit a white dude. Can you imagine a modern player showing that kind of demeanor out there or in the press?
