Seattle Seahawks All-Pro defensive back Richard Sherman can come off as arrogant and loud mouthed to those who don’t invest enough time into learning about him.

But the Stanford graduate is far more than just a trash-talking Pro Bowl talent.

Sherman recently sat down to pen a piece for MMQB and delivered some hard hitting points about concussions in the NFL, blatantly pointing out that if you as a fan are offended – don’t watch.

If you don’t like it, stop watching.

Sherman goes on to talk about the dangers of other sports, using Nascar and boxing as examples, which are extremely valid points. He also points out that he (and others) are well aware what they’re signing up for.

Of course, on the flip side we’ve seen what repeated blows to the head can do to a persons mental state so I’m not sure it’s as cut and dry as Sherman attempts to point out. Regardless, it’s a very captivating and interesting read.

Did Sherman change your opinion? Or do you still feel the way you did prior to reading his piece?
