Guy on 49ers sideline takes a cheap shot on Seahawks player (Video)

Jan 19, 2014; Seattle, WA, USA; San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh waits to take the field before the 2013 NFC Championship football game against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. Mandatory Credit: Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The NFC Championship game has been close with the San Francisco 49ers leading the Seattle Seahawks 3-0 after the first quarter. Punt plays can become dangerous for players running up the side lines with the way we’ve seen players and coaches come off the sideline and onto the field.

One Seahawks player was way out-of-bounds on the sideline on a punt return and it looks like he received a cheap shot from someone on the 49ers side line. It is hard to tell what happened to cornerback Jeremy lane because he runs behind a person, but it looks like he receives a clothesline from the person behind him on the side line.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments below what you think happened and if it is a cheap shot.

    DEFINATE cheap shot!!!! He lowered his shoulder and just blasted em! He even stared em down like the coward he is too…anybody know who the player was? Looked like an inactive 49er

          • Michael

            You know you can change your font size so you don’t continue to yell at everyone. And you can be more civil with your comments and people will be more willing to listen to your rants. Or are you always right and no one else can be right unless they agree with you. It is your opinion and we have ours and you can’t be right all the time. You can get a better response with honey other than using salt. Strange you can read our comments but have to use Caps for your own. That is plan yelling and no one likes to be yelled at. Funny SteelCurtin meaning nothing can through to you so why are we bothering?

          • STEELCURTIN

            MICHAEL, MICHAEL, MICHAEL. PLEASE READ THE THREAD BEFORE COMMENTING ON MY FONT SIZE

            FOR THE 5TH TIME,, THE REASON FOR THE CAPS IS I RECENTLY HAD EYE SURGERY. SMALL FONT IS DIFFICULT TO SEE. IN ORDER TO READ OTHERS COMMENTS I USE A MAGNIFIER, SEE, ALL YOU NEEDED TO DO WAS ASK

            AS PER THE REMANDER OF YOUR COMMENTS, KEEP IN MIND I DEAL IN BLACK & WHITE ONLY ON MESSAGE BOARDS. SOME PEOPLE SIMPLY CANT DEAL WITH IT

            THERE IS A LOT OF CRAP ESPOUSED ON THESE BOARDS. DIFF IS, I CAN PROVE EVERYTHING I SAY

            BOTTOM LINE: MOST SIMPLY CANT DEAL WITH IT BECAUSE OF THEIR WEAKNESSES AND PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS

            WHEN SOMEONE MAKES AN ACCUSATION ABOUT BEN FOR INSTANCE (IE: GUILTY OF RAPE), YOU BETTER BE ABLE TO BACK IT UP—ITS CALLED BURDEN OF PROOF

            SATISFIED?

          • Twilo

            Why are you cyber yelling?

          • Rick Burtonelli

            LEARN TO READ—ON AT LEAST 3 OCCASIONS I STATED THE USE OF CAPS IS BECAUSE OF A RECENT EYE OPERATION

            MAKE THIS THE 4TH TIME

            ANYTHING ELSE?

        • STEELCURTIN

          SO YOU ARE COMPARING AN ANTIQUATED NFL WITH WHAT TOOK PLACE AFTER THE MERGER IN 1970, WHEN THE PLAYERS BECAME MUCH BIGGER, FASTER, STRONGER???

          THERE WAS NO COMPARISON BETWEEN THE 2 ERA’S AS ITS INFINITELY MORE DIFFICULT TO WIN AN NFL CHAMPIONSHIP SINCE THE MERGER

          CAN YOU SAY 12 GAME SCHEDULE, ONE GAME PLAYOFF?

          ITS LIKE COMPARING A MODEL T TO A CURRENT DAY 450 SL MERCEDES

          THERES SOOOO MUCH MORE I COULD ADD IN TERMS OF DIFFERENCES, IT WOULD TAKE ANOTHER HOUR

          WAY TO EMBARRASS YOURSELF LITTLE GUY

          WHAT ARE YOU, LIKE AGE 13? LOL

          BTW–WHO WINS THE SUPER BOWL BETWEEN THE 1967 PACKERS & 75 STEELERS? LOL

          • Keith Olson

            No need to throw insults Steel Curtain (I’ll spell this correctly for ya to prevent embarrassment in the future).
            Comparison is fine with me. So, who wins the super bowl between the ’75 Steelers and the 2010 Packers?
            Comparison doesn’t work in ANY sport when discussing past and present teams.
            Should we throw out the Yankees many championships because the caliber of play was not what it is today? Or the Celtics?
            The Super Bowl crowns the NFL champion, just as the NFL championship game did in the past.
            The Packers have won 13 NFL titles, which the Super Bowl produces now-a-days, BIG GUY………..(big guy is a joke. I really mean DUMBASS!!!!)

          • STEELCURTIN

            First of all, care to point out ALL my misspells?

            You fail to understand what i said previously

            Taking nothing away from the Packers titles, but to win a SB in this day and age is infinitely more Difficult no matter the era.

            Do you honestly think the Pack would have won all those titles in a 32 team league given the appropriate talent, vs 13??

            Yes it is comparable when the circumstances are put together properly

            BTW: I grew up on football. My Dad was Offensive line coach for the Steelers from 1958 through 74

            I Played my college ball at NC State, drafted in the 4th round by Cleve Browns. Back injury in camp stopped further progress

            I know the game well, not like an every day observer

            My points are succinct & accurate!

          • Keith Olson

            Strange………..The Pittsburgh Steelers website lists three different offensive line coaches (maybe more;I quit looking after finding three between 1958 and 1974).

          • STEELCURTIN

            TAKE A REMEDIAL READING CLASS. THOSE 3 WERE **ASSISTANTS.

            DUH!!!

          • STEELCURTIN

            KEITH, INSTEAD OF GIVING YOU MY FATHERS NAME RIGHT NOW, AND SINCE YOU DOUBT WHAT I SAID REGARDS MY FATHER, HOW ABOUT A FRIENDLY WAGER?

            SAY MY $500.00 TO YOUR 100.00?

            SINCE I FLY CESSNA 172 IN MY LINE OF WORK, HOW ABOUT I COME TO YOU DEPENDING ON YOUR PROXIMITY TO PITTSBURGH

            I WILL BRING ALL CREDENTIALS AS IT PERTAINS TO MY DAD POSITION WITH THE STEELERS

            THERES NOTHING LIKE PUT UP OR SHUT UP

            NO EXCUSES, AS IN NONE!

            WELL, ARE YOU IN? I’LL CHECK BACK

          • Darin Martin

            Steelers Steel Curtain defense would have made mommas boy Aaron piss his pants. I hate the Steelers, but the defense was number one or two all time. Rogers offense isn’t anywhere near a top 10 offense all time… maybe closer to 15-20. Seriously. Many many offenses are better. The Patriots alone would occupy 3-4 spots at the top. The Colts with Peyton, same.

          • JMH57

            Nobody wins. They’re either too old or are already dead.

    • nathanville

      Actually a coward would have checked him and then walked away, not owning up to his actions. That dude completely owned up to his actions. Is he wrong for taking a cheap shot? Of course. Is he a coward for his behavior for staring him down? I don’t think that is the proper characterization of his actions.

      • Zach Vaught

        What made him a coward is the fact that he stared him down KNOWING the other guy wouldn’t do anything back for he knows he’d get in trouble. Easy to look tough when you have the stake of the game weighing on the Seahawks player’s reaction.

        It’s like pushing someone when you have your buddies with you….then feeling tough about it.

        • nathanville

          So in your estimation, in the 2 seconds that the nameless 49er had to decide to hip check the Seahawk, he considered that the Seahawk could not retaliate for fear of being flagged? That guy must be quite the quick thinker!!!

          • Zach Vaught

            That doesn’t require much thinking really. Chances are that he knew Lane wouldn’t retaliate given the circumstances. Simple as that. I think you may be giving too much credit for the thought process required..?

          • nathanville

            To decide to hip check someone while contemplating the circumstances takes far more time than that guy had. It is why so many penalties occur in the 1st place – it is a lot easier to react to a situation than it is to process cause and effect. In my estimation he saw him heading towards him, checked him knocking him to the ground, and then thought he was a bad a$$ and decided to stare him down. I seriously doubt at any time he was thinking “now if he retaliates we can get an extra 15 yards!”

          • Shane Beeler

            Wasn’t a “hip check” the inactive play tried to clothes line him and it was a cowardly thing to do. To do something to another knowing they can’t retaliate is cowardly. Do you have a crush on this 49er, nathanville, because you are defending his cowardice pretty strongly.

          • nathanville

            I just think people are over-analyzing the play. It was a cheap shot, he should be fined at the very least. But to think that a great deal of thought went into his action is jumping to ridiculous conclusions. As a Packer fan I really don’t like either team but I also don’t like outlandish analysis with no basis for an argument.

          • Zach Vaught

            I think you’re the only one putting so much though into it. As Shane summarized very well in a single line, “To do something to another knowing they can’t retaliate is cowardly.” It can be concluded from this that staring down the player afterwards isn’t exactly… brave.

          • nathanville

            He didn’t know he wouldn’t retaliate. How were there any guarantees that the Lane would not jump up and take a swing at him?

          • Zach Vaught

            Well, ok he wouldn’t, “know”. But I’m sure he had a pretty dang good idea! All I mean is that staring him down rather than walking away doesn’t make it any… less cowardly. If anything staring someone down after a cheap shot makes it more cowardly. I probably over-complicated things earlier but that’s all I’m really trying to say.

          • Rob

            For that matter you have idea if he knew or not either so stop arguing your point “outlandish analysis with no basis for an argument”
            .

          • nathanville

            Considering the guy most likely is not a mind reader, I can be pretty sure he had no idea what Lane’s reaction would be.

          • Shane Beeler

            I’m sorry, it read like you were defending his actions. I’m sure we can all agree that it was not good sportsmanship regardless of the thought process behind it.

          • nathanville

            There is no arguing that he is a total a-hole for his actions. It was definitely a dirty play.

          • Seidan1

            If you don’t want to get hit on the sideline maybe you shouldn’t be 10 feet out of bounds and headed toward the other teams head coach.

          • AngryCountryBoy

            Thank You – “Rose colored Glasses – Hip Check” -Is Nathanville his agent or what.?

            Jeesh

          • nathanville

            Hip check is just a hockey term. It’s hard to tell exactly what part of his body he hit him with due to the angle and the blurriness. Does calling it a clothesline, elbow shot or anything else change what happened?

          • Darin Martin

            Stop being so literal and absorb what he is saying. Jesus man, you argue like a chick. Yes, you Nathan

          • nathanville

            I comprehend what he is saying, but I disagreed with a few of his points. Thus the arguing with logic. I apologize if this is beyond you. I will try to dumb down my conversation next time so that I can communicate better with your “brah” mentality.

  • nhstoneybrook

    Yes, the guy launched himself into the player. I hope the NFL slaps him with a big fine. Also, I would hope Harbaugh would do something about it but I doubt it.

    • remainderman

      Don’t worry, Harbaugh will reward him.

      • RiverMikeRat

        Nothing to reward. Nothing happened. Harbaugh isn’t Shawn Payton.

  • David

    It looks like that the individual has spent his last day as a 49er.

  • Chairman Mao Facts

    it was great and completely called for

    • Jared Covey

      You Mad Bro?

    • Richard Slapoy

      Yeah, right out of the little red book.

    • Darrian Mitchell

      Which is why the niners will be watching the game from their couches at home

    • Gary-D

      Another fool who whines!

  • Justin Williams

    Ahh the blind loyal masses, you only bother to see what you want, not the fact that the player closelined committed multiple uncalled fouls in a single play, reentering the field being one of those.

    • J Crenshaw

      You really don’t know much about football do you. Otherwise you would know that you can come back into bounds, but you have to establish a certain distance before being able to get in on the play. Just because hes pushed out doesnt mean he cant come back in. nimrod

    • J Crenshaw

      Oh you should name the MULTIPLE calls while you are at it.

      • Richard Slapoy

        Not to mention #26 grabbing him by the face mask when he tried to get back in!

      • Justin Williams

        You give me more than a poorly edited 6 second clip and I will be glad to take you step by step.

        • Zach G

          You’re wrong, you know you’re wrong, and you can’t prove it. Name off the calls and let us know what “fouls” were committed during the play. I’m thinking because you believe being out of bounds automatically disqualifies you from the rest of the play that most of the “fouls” you saw probably were more of the same – nothing…
          You should be ashamed of yourself for even remotely trying to make what happened on the sidelines “right” in some way. It doesn’t matter how many fouls he committed in the process of trying to get down field, dropping a player like that can cause serious undue injury. If this was someone on the Seahawk’s sideline I would be just as outraged and would hope the person responsible was removed from the team.

    • Bud McCurry

      You are an idiot who doesn’t know the rules of football

      • Justin Williams

        How cute that your intelligence still has not progressed past the cave dwellers instinct to lash out. Maybe next you can attack a shadow on the wall, or maybe slap your reflection in water. I suppose next you will shake your fists and grunt at me as well instead of attempting any civilized communication.

        • William David Dell

          You sir, are an instigator of ridiculous proportions

        • Pete Haubrick

          Let me be civil about this. Can you address the penalties to which you speak?

        • FusterCluck

          And please, sir, cite the rule that says a player on the kicking team can’t reenter the field of play after being routed out of bounds? It would be very much appreciated…

    • Gary-D

      Reentering only deals with making a tackle. NFL rules state he must clearly get back onto the field as quick as possible, NOT that you can’t thus it is a foul!

    • Joe Dickerson

      Awww it’s cute that you just started watching football Justin. You may be interested to know that a gunner, sorry “the guy running like crazy to try to tackle the guy fielding the point” is REQUIRED to fight his way back into the field of play when pushed out. If he doesn’t, THAT is a penalty (unsportsmanlike conduct) so what are these multiple other fouls? Was it for wearing blue? Just so you know, blue isn’t banned in the NFL either…

  • Jamie Kennedy

    Definately a cheap shot

  • Jared Covey

    Total cheap shot you can see the guy stick his arm out and clothes line him!! I think a hundred grand just like thomlin got should be about right.

    • Bill Ernst

      Are you sure you saw that. Looks like he slipped on the first down marker.

      • Rroller

        Yeah, and he was so bummed that he clotheslined lane, that he stepped clear, and posed for effect! Like” you want more , step over here”!
        Blatant and classless, like everything 40 whiners.

      • Steven Shearon

        either your a 49er fan or your just blind. That is what the 49er’s are all about taking cheap shots and it starts with the head coach. he’s a total jerk and he let’s his players do the same. Even the fans in san Francisco are jerks.

  • Tanap

    Watch Lane’s feet. I agree this guy didn’t move out of the way and gave a hit on the shoulder, but Lane slipped on the 1st down marker at the same time. Just look at his feet.

    • Watching

      He didn’t slip on the marker, he was biffed in the face. Watch the way his head snaps back and he trips/falls back onto the field. Total crap shot by the other guy.

    • Jbob

      Look close the marker doesn’t move. So, that can’t be the reason.

    • Gary-D

      The SF guy lowered his shoulder into lane,. No slipping at all!

  • Donna Jones

    CHEAP SHOT, looks like the dude in the black sweats/ red stripe did it (IMO) LOTS of missed calls, when it was the Seahawks, but man were they calling some bogus calls against the Seahawks……Love when the Seahawks beat 2 teams!! Goooooooo Seahawks!

    • NorthWestBolt

      I agree, that holding call on Sherman on 3rd and 10 was the worst….that led to a touchdown. Could have been a game changer.

  • Ryan Loy

    Obviously it is a cheap shot. he clearly jumped back trying to make it look and if Jeremy Lane tripped over the down marker.

  • ingram1225

    Anyone else notice the Dbag coach there smiling after the hit?

    • Angela Estabrook

      hate that guy and his walmart tan pants

      • kile

        Its funny Angela, you talk shyt, but you would be on his nuts all day long, that is if you had the chance. Which you dont.
        And boy, would you gladly drink his ….

        • Darin Martin

          Your dad wasn’t around, huh?

          • kile

            Nope, but your sister was

        • Ty Jones

          It sounds like you speak from experience.

  • Dana Moreno

    Definitely a cheap shot…looks like it was a person with the 49 ers team….I think this should be looked at by officials of the NFL and if this individual can be identified he should be banned from all sidelines. There is a reason why clotheslining does not have a place in this game. This person could have cost this player dearly if injured by this or even worse. ..it might have cost him his career by breaking his neck….shame on this person!

    • FusterCluck

      If nothing else, congrats to you for being able to spell definately, uh, defenately, hmm, Deafinetlay? Ah, to he!! with it. Absolutely!

      • Gayle

        Dana has it spelled correctly: DEFINITELY. GO HAWKS!!!

        • FusterCluck

          Yeah, I know. I was makin’ da funny…

    • RiverMikeRat

      Oh, you mean like the clothesline and then face mask that took LaMichael James out of the game for awhile that wasn’t called? TWO penalties by one player on the same play and neither were called.

      • stan

        that was 100% not a clothesline, but it was a facemask. And that happened ON THE FIELD.

  • D.J. Wright

    true cheap shot…he’s off the team after the league sends that letter to harbough, smh

  • kile

    Seattle won, 9ers didnt

    • FusterCluck

      My aren’t we insightful…

      • kile

        You be nice Cluckey

    • Matt Morin

      Niners have 5 super bowl rings. Seattle – zero.

      • kile

        To Matt: not a Seattle fan, I’m just happy to see the niners out.

        And by the way, no Harvin, no Rice, and no Browner

        • Matt Morin

          Hmm… no Browner why? Oh that’s right, because the Seahawks are cheaters in addition to classless douchebags.

          Niners: No Manningham and most of the game with no Iupati – one of the best lineman in the NFL. But you can’t make excuses about injuries. Niners were without Crabtree most of the season. With him, that game would have been played in SF. But the Niners never whined about having to go back to Seattle.

          • kile

            Ya, but Harvin was out all year. And the first game in Seattle, Seattle was missing like 5 starters. And yes, i bartend dude, niner fans were very upset they didnt have home field, especially agajnst Green Bay. My God

          • tedster

            Matt: Make all the excuses whether logical or not and reach for all the bathroom talk you can come up with but it will never change the fact that your WHINERS lost the game! Shoulda, coulda, if only and whatever you can think of….your team lost the game….live with it and if it makes you feel better live in the past and oh by the way, you can sit in front of the billboard in Fife,WA that you and your fellow fans paid for. It’s considerably South of Seattle!

          • Matt Morin

            And you can take all your Richard Sherman trash talk and sickening fan popcorn throwing you can come up with, but it will never change the fact that Seattle has never won anything. Ever.

          • tedster

            You obviously watch and believe too many commercials down there! You also know nothing about the man Richard Sherman! On the field he talks alot and he backs it up. He is a fierce competitor but off teh field he’s one of the nicest and classiest guys you’ll ever meet. There’s a history between him and Crabtree but I doubt you’ll be able to understand it. With that being said You can take your old SB rings and sit on ‘em and see if they hatch! Of course the WHINERS couldn’t whine about having to come back to Seattle. It was either show up and lose or stay home and forfeit! You’ve got all off season now to sit there and contemplate, meanwhile….the Hawks are Superbowl bound! Stew over that one.

          • Matt Morin

            Sherman classy? DA HA HA! That’s rich.

            You want to see classy? Last year Navarro Bowman did the exact same thing Sherman did on the field – make a game-ending play that sent his team to the Super Bowl. The difference is, Bowman has more class in his little finger than Sherman could even dream about. Bowman congratulated the Falcons on a great game and showed real class.

            Act like you’ve been there before. Which I know is hard, because you almost never are.

          • Pammie Duran

            I guess you missed the part where Sherman went to shake Crabtree’s hand and got shoved in the face by Crabtree…Is that a classy 49′er? not even close. what did Sherman do that was so bad? did he cuss? No did he get physical with some one after the game? No. so what is your big deal about Matt? or are you just being a 40 whiner? and pissed that your Franchise didn’t win

          • Matt Morin

            If you think Sherman was trying to shake Crabtrees hand , you’re even dumber than you’ve already exhibited.

          • Terrence Nashlund

            Since when is smoking weed cheating? Looking through your post here, it’s quite evident you’re a sad little child.

          • Matt Morin

            It’s cheating because it’s against the rules. Pretty basic – most 5-year-olds can understand that. Funny that you can’t.

          • Terrence Nashlund

            In order to cheat, it has to give you some sort of advantage. Weed has a adverse effect. Surprise you didn’t know that.

          • Matt Morin

            No, in order to cheat, you need to break the rules.

            Browner suspended twice – once for PEDs, once for illegal substances
            Thurmond suspended for illegal substances.
            Irvin suspended for PEDs.
            Sherman – caught with PEDs, then got lucky and got off.

            And Browner and Thurmond were suspended because they had already blown through their first-time offenses.

          • Terrence Nashlund

            Cheating refers to an immoral way of achieving
            a goal. It is generally used for the breaking of rules to gain unfair
            advantage in a competitive situation.

          • Benjamin Shaw

            Weed isn’t against the rules the only reason he got suspended for it is because it’s federally illegal even though it was legal where he was smoking it

          • Matt Morin

            Um… yeah it is. Weed is against the rules per the collective bargaining agreement. And even now that weed is legal in Washington, it’s STILL against the rules for NFL players per the collective bargaining agreement.

          • elizapar

            Please stop whining like a typical 49er fan. You lost because your boy Kap choked under NO PRESSURE. Also, if Sherman was so bad defensively why didn’t they throw in his direction many times. What are the 49ers afraid of? So remind me again how many rings Kap, Gore, Davis, Willis have?

          • Matt Morin

            Please stop yapping like a typical Seahawks fan even though your team has never won anything. Ever. Most fans with teams as historically bad as yours are smart enough not to talk when they’ve accomplished nothing in 37 years.

        • Guest

          Matt: You’re grieving and should talk to someone. Your mom, your girlfriend, your boyfriend, or a counselor. Venting on this posting board will not make you feel better. Look at how much effort you’re putting into your responses. You need a hug, some love, (again) an ear. I would feel for you, but I’m a Seahawk fan. We won. No Al Bundy moment can take that away. You’re just going to have to deal with it and (it’s obvious) you’re efforts here aren’t helping. I lived in the Bay Area for 10 years and I know psychologists(and psychiatrists) in the area. Let me know if you need some references. 206-GET-SOME!!

      • KCS1986

        Haha Matt you are an idiot. Please have a more thoughtful argument than talking about the super bowl rings. Niners do have 5 rings… let’s start counting how many of THESE players were on the Niners team for ANY of those rings… let’s see 5… nope… 4?… nope… 3?… nope… 2?… nope… man it has to be at least 1 then?… WELL DAMN it looks like none of them were. Not to mention Out of our 2 teams the Seahawks seem to be the only one left that still has a chance of claiming a ring this year. Go back to your Niner troll dungeon and think up some better arguments before you ever post anything on here again. For the sake of your own intelligence and the rest of your fan base… please…

        • Matt Morin

          It’s cute that you think anything other than Super Bowl rings for the team matters. Players don’t matter – they move all over. The FRANCHISE matters. Well, the Seahawks franchise doesn’t matter because they’ve won nothing. Ever.

          For the sake of your own intelligence and the rest of your fan base… please… just go back to throwing popcorn at injured opposing players. That’s what you’re best at.

          • Pammie Duran

            The FRANCHISE never picked up the ball, they never ran down the field. They pay the payroll and the bills. They did not earn the ring, the players did, and without the players the FRANCHISE is nothing. Just another whiner Matt.

          • Matt Morin

            The FRANCHISE hires all the players and coaches. Ever wonder why FRANCHISES win Super Bowls over and over with different players? (Of course you don’t, because you’re clueless.) Just another bandwagon Seahawks fan with no knowledge of sports.

          • Pammie Duran

            So what Happened to your Franchise this year? Why aren’t you adding another ring to make it half a dozen?

          • Matt Morin

            Can’t win ‘em all. Then again, for Seattle, I bet you just want to win ONE.

          • Benjamin Shaw

            You’re an idiot because it’s not about the franchise it’s about the here and now, the team you currently have, you ever hear a team owner saying hey we have six previous rings so who cares that your going to the Super Bowl this year and not me, your living in the past with your Super Bowls I’m looking to the future with mine it’s not about the Super Bowl past it’s about the Super Bowl to come you don’t get paid for the past you get paid for the here and now

          • Matt Morin

            In the here and now you have no Super Bowl titles either.

          • Benjamin Shaw

            Let’s see if you can still say that in two weeks, and in the here and now we’re going to the Super Bowl and your players are going home

          • Terrence Nashlund

            Either do you.

          • Matt Morin

            But we have 5 others. That’s the difference. Niner fans have EARNED the right to talk. Seattle fans just talk even though they’ve never won a thing.

          • Matt Morin

            Any mediocre team can get hot and win a Super Bowl. See: 2007 Giants. It take a great FRANCHISE to sustain excellence. Something the Seahawks know nothing about.

          • Benjamin Shaw

            Yeah i know mediocre teams can win the Super Bowl take a look at all five of the 40 whiners rings

          • Terrence Nashlund

            One guy threw some popcorn at the guy. I’m not defending the fans actions, but it wasn’t like the whole crowd started doing the wave or something.

          • Genie Lee Evans

            Every fan base has it’s drunks who do stupid stuff.(No proof it was thrown could have dropped and it was one playwr). 99% of the Seahawks stood and clapped out respect for your injured player as he was taken off the field.

          5 Super Bowl trophies comfort me if we lose.

          What helps you when your team falls short every single year for their entire existence?

          • Real World

            Glad you’re comforted…you obviously need that security blanket for your psyche, Linus. After coming so close and failing this and last year, I can understand your need…

            I don’t need much comforting we’re pretty strong up here in the northwest…ask Kapernick and Vernon Davis. We’re building toward the future and you guys are still trying to reclaim the past…good luck with that. But maybe, just maybe Debartalo can buy the team back and Joe and Jerry can come out of retirement. LOL!!

            It’ll be interesting to see if that 5-super-bowl-privilege ever manifests into something more than topic for debate. Until then, little Mathew (Linus) Morin has his comfort…

            See you in New York…

            …oh wait…

          • Matt Morin

            Building for the future! That’s awesome. When you lose in the divisional round last year and completely miss the playoffs the year before, I guess the future is all you have.

            You should shoot for the recent Niner accomplishments – 3 straight NFC Champ games and one Super Bowl. I know that seems like a tall order, given the Seahawks history (or lack thereof), but I’m sure with effort, Adderall and some more undetectable PEDs, you can do it!

            In the meantime, remind your players and fans to talk like they’ve won something. In the absence of ever winning anything, you’ve got to start somewhere.

          • Real World

          What’s the expiration date on never winning anything?

      • Justin Robbins

        soon to be one unless we get the same ref crew we got against the steelers. whens the last time you guys won a super bowl? how long have you been in the league? and your best player ever hates you guys….. Ya Montana…. You lost to Flaco and the Ravens then went and traded between brothers for Boldin hoping it would help. IT DID NOTHING.

        • Matt Morin

          Typical Seattle fan – talk like you’ve won something, when you never have. And STILL crying about the refs against the Steelers? Pathetic.

  • Shane Yoss

    Personally if the player is OK and he is not complaining, I’m ok with it. Why because Seattle is going to the Superbowl and the 40 whiners are not! Cheap shot or not Whiner fans are sniveling!

  • Robert Littlefield

    I WASNT HAPPY ABOUT THE CONDUCT ON BOTH SIDES BUT THATS WHAT MAKES A FIRED UP GAME…NOT TO PROFESSIONAL AND YA THAT WAS A BLATANT CHEAP SHOT!

  • Robert Littlefield

    ALL THIS TALK AND LETS GET REAL BOTH SIDES WERE STARTING TO PLAY A DIRTY CHEAP SHOT GAME. come on it happens in every sport especially if it’s a real heavy game.The Hawks pulled it off.Congrads to the winners. Lets see what happens to the bowl and see who walks away with that!

  • Robert Littlefield

    a mans leg got broke for one that sucks no matter what team they are on!

    • elizapar

      • RiverMikeRat

        You must only know transplants then. All the girls I know are glued to the TV during a Niner game. Including my mother. She schedules shopping trips to occur not during games.

        • kile

          River rat, i have lived in the BA for 43 years, i clearly remember 1980, when they were horrible, and how (most women) would go shopping, go to the beach, do laundry, schedule a baptism. The same thing happened a few years ago when the niners were horrible.
          I guarentee your mom (who I`m sure is a very nice women) will be getting manicures, on Sundays if they started 0-5.

          • RiverMikeRat

            Nope. She’s always been glued to the TV when the Niners played. It was always a family affair, win, lose, or draw. Then again, we are REAL fans, not fair weather fans like many.

            My mom doesn’t get manicures. She’s done her own nails for all 70-plus years of her life. My sister is the shallow one that pays for garbage like that. Then again, my sister is also a real fan who will “shush” people who are talking during the game again, no matter HOW the team is playing.

            I lived in the BA for more than 40 years myself. My mom was there for closer to 65.

          • kile

            Well, that is awesome, and like i said “most women.”

            And if you remember 1981, you would agree with me.
            And a few years ago, people were trying to sell their tix.
            You know these things, you live here!

          • RiverMikeRat

            Fair weather fans. I also follow the Warriors and the Earthquakes. If I had season tix, someone would have to pay me a huge amount for them for any of those teams. And I sport my colors proudly win, lose or draw.

          • kile

            Not the Giants??

          • RiverMikeRat

            Yes, the Giants. I figured that would have been obvious. My bad. :D

    I think it is time to remove everyone from the side line that is not an active player. This really happens to much. This guy if he is a player should be suspended for a few games and fined.

  • Jerry Jackson

    So where was it?

  • WmThomas2424

    Yes, this is a total cheap shot. This person should be suspended for doing this.

  • Jerry Hocutt

    San Francisco’s 12th man.

    • Genie Lee Evans

      49er fans can not call themselves “12th man”. Seattle Seahawks fans are the only NFL TEAM who have the legal rights to this title

      • Seidan1

        I heard Seadderall was gonna try to copyright 13th man to describe the officials.

      • Kaledin

        And they STOLE it from Texas A&M. Real original there.

        • Dred Scott

          WRONG!!!!! They have a SIGNED CONTRACT with A&M until 2016 to use the 12th man icon. A&M got $100,000 up front and $5000 a year..
          Get your FACTS straight before you spout off and look like an ignorant 40 Whiner fan….or worse, a Republican

          • nathanville

            They got the signed contract AFTER they started using it. You aren’t suggesting that they approached A&M BEFORE they started using the term and worked out a payment agreement are you? A&M took them to court because they STOLE it initially.

        • Genie Lee Evans

          And the reason we got the right it was proven that though got the legal rights to it first we were actually using it first

      • nathanville

        Yeah, after they stole it from Texas A&M. Let’s not try to act like their 12th man gimmick has an iota of originality.

        • Genie Lee Evans

          Actually work on your facts…… the reason the case was settled out of court was because there was documented proof that we used the the 12th man first but they got the legal rights to it first. If it hadn’t Been for that documentation A&M would not have settled out of court

          • nathanville

            You’re an idiot. I don’t really know how else to explain it outside of you, being an idiot. Here is a little history lesson –

            The first recorded instance of the term “12th Man” referring to an individual was to denote E. King Gill and his actions in Dallas on 2 January 1922. At the Dixie Classic, the forerunner of the Cotton Bowl Classic, Texas A&M (then known as The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas) played defending national champion Centre College. In this hard fought game, which produced national publicity, an underdog Aggie team was slowly but surely defeating a team which boasted three All-Americans. During the game, A&M coach Dana X. Bible realized that one more injury would leave him without another backfield player to send into the game. Coach Bible remembered that Gill, an individual who had tried out for the squad but who “lacked the experience and ability to play for the varsity” had made the trip as a member of the school’s Corps of Cadets and was sitting with his friends in the stands. Bible sent for Gill and asked for him to suit up and be ready if needed. Gill later said, “I wish I could say that I went in and ran for the winning touchdown, but I did not. I simply stood by in case my team needed me.” Although he did not actually play in the game, his readiness to play was noted. As there were 11 men on the field, E. King Gill was the 12th Man, hence the term.

            Other individuals have occasionally been labeled by local media as the “Twelfth Man” of their team, although there is no record of this label being used by any schools or fans, other than Texas A&M. In 1930, W. H. Adamson, Principal of Oak Cliff (Dallas) High School was called the “Twelfth Man” of the school’s football team by a local reporter due to the rousing pre-game speeches he would give to the players.

            The first known instance of Texas A&M referring to its fanbase as the “12th Man” is contained on page 17 of the 25 November 1921 edition of The Battalion, the Texas A&M campus newspaper. Current Texas A&M students call themselves the 12th Man. The entire student body stands throughout the game to symbolize their “readiness, desire, and enthusiasm” to take the field if needed. A statue of E. King Gill stands to the north of Kyle Field to remind Aggies of their constant obligation to preserve the spirit of the 12th Man. Beginning in 1985, fans also began waving 12th Man Towels during the game to show their support. The tradition of towels started when coach Jackie Sherrill’s 12th man squad began carrying them to motivate the student body in the stands. During one kickoff during a tense game, 12th man squad member Tony Pollacia took to the field in preparation for the kickoff, and began twirling his towel over his head to excite the crowd. This was the first time the towel was ever swung around by a player on the field in this way. The act was so well received that during the next kickoff, more members of the 12th man kickoff squad took their towels onto the field as well and imitated Pollacia’s action. During the season, students began waving their own white towels, and now the towels are ubiquitous. In the 1988 Cotton Bowl Classic game vs Notre Dame, a member of Sherrill’s 12th Man Kickoff Team Warren Barhorst tackled Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown. He took Brown’s towel and waved it over his head in celebration. An infuriated Brown tackled Barhorst, earning himself a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

            The Seattle Seahawks retired the number 12 jersey on December 15, 1984 in honor of their fans. In 2003, the Seahawks installed a giant flagpole in the south end zone of what is now CenturyLink Field, and began a tradition of raising a giant flag with the number 12 on it in honor of the fans. Usually, a local celebrity or a season ticket holder raises the flag during pregame ceremonies. In recent years, 12th man flags have been seen all over Seattle whenever the Seahawks make the playoffs, including atop the Space Needle.

            “The first known instance of Texas A&M referring to its fanbase as the “12th Man” is contained on page 17 of the 25 November 1921 edition of The Battalion” … you know, way before the Seahawks even existed.

            resorting to name calling just lets us all know your iq level……low

          • Genie Lee Evans

            if truth told neither Seahawks nor Texas A&M started the phrase 12th man, Teaxas a&m “stole” it from another school. The phrase as been used as long as the game, A&M just trademarked it and we pay for the rights to be the only NFL team to use it as they are the only college team who can use it…..so get you facts straight. Truth is though I think it is cool that we are the only NFL team to have the rights to use it, it should be open for all.

          • nathanville

            At least you took the time to edit your original sentence where I was “resorting to name”. If you suspect that the fact that I called you out for being an idiot, after you went with “work on your facts” when you clearly hadn’t means I have a low IQ, then clearly you need to work on your powers of observation.

            I could just as easily point to this sentence “If it hadn’t Been for that documentation A&M would not have settled out of court” you made which first had an oddly capitalized “Been”, and a lack of punctuation and make a claim about your apparent lack of an education beyond a kindergarten level. But since I don’t like to assume things I won’t suggest that.

            I will stick with my original claim though that jumping on and telling someone to check their facts when you had no idea what you were talking about was an idiotic gesture. Maybe you can attempt to judge my IQ based on an act that actually has no indication of one’s IQ again and make yourself look even more foolish!

            In case you weren’t aware and IQ test does not measure the quantity of your knowledge but rather measures a person’s general intellectual ability to understand ideas, as compared to the general population at the same developmental level. How well we reason, distinguish relationships and solve problems are the kinds of things the test aims to discern. An IQ test also measures how well we process information, particularly our ability to store and retrieve it. I don’t suspect calling someone and “idiot” falls into that realm.

          • Genie Lee Evans

            There is a lot I could point that is wrong with what you have saying but you not worth my time and energy except to say you shouldn’t use foxnews or foxsports to get your information. Bye

          • nathanville

            “There is a lot I could point that is wrong with what you have saying but you not worth my time” … bwahahahahahahahaha!!!

          • nathanville

            And here is an excerpt from FOX Sports –

            The Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl thanks in large part to the “12th Man.”

            But in the world of college football, the “12th Man” resides at Texas A&M.

            How are the Seahawks allowed to use one of the Aggies’ longest and proudest traditions which began in 1922?

            According to a report by Texas A&M SB Nation blog Good Bull Hunting, the Seahawks paid Texas A&M $100,000 in 2006 and continue to give $5,000 a year to use the “12th Man.”

            The agreement was renewed in 2011 for another five years.

  • AngryCountryBoy

    Not a mention of it- way too much Sherman/Seahawk Hating going on today!

    Total cheep shot, that guy shouldn’t be allowed to play in the superbooohhh wait.

  • Paul

    Yup. Matched the one given by the Hawks on the field on the same play.

    • James

      What play are you talking about?

      • Richard Sherman

        I assume he’s referring to Lockette destroying James as he bobbled the ball around. Or perhaps still grasping at the one the same player laid on the Rams in week 17.

    Total cheap shot I’m just glad he didn’t get hurt

  • Guest

    I saw this during the game and was surprised they didn’t reply it over and over again and flag the 49ers for this. He should be fined severely because he could have injured that Seahawk player.

  • Jaruizcha

    I saw this during the game and was surprised they didn’t replay it over and over again and flag the 49ers for this. He should be fined severely because he could have injured that Seahawk player.

    Always nice to see the FortyWhiners watching the SB from the couch. It’ll give Kaepernick the time to find some nice dude to help him with his ‘celebration dance’.

  • Jeffery Beckham

    That was actually Harbaugh standing right there. That is CLASSLESS for a coach to actually see it and not say or do anything about it.

  • http://packer-madness.com/ Packer-Madness

    Seahawks deserves to be treated like this! Classless fools!

    Sucker punched looks like to me. He also was being absolutely mugged by the last defender.

    The 49er isn’t even LOOKING at the Seahawk player.

  • mylilelar

    He slipped on the orange down marker.
    What a bunch of poosies.

  • http://www.simplyheavenlyfood.com Kelekia

    Such a cheap no class shot!! I am glad they lost!

  • Dayna Miller

    Why did they let that go? Does anyone know the official rules on this type of foul on the sidelines?

  • John Geiger

    that guy on the sideline should be thrown out of the nfl and assault charges brought against him!

  • Jon Scherrer

    What I think is totally cool is that Lane just gets up and keeps on going. Him and Lockette are awesome in the gunner positions.

  • Logan H.

    Seahawk fans talking about class when their fans threw popcorn at a injured player, talk about another coach not doing anything when their coach does nothing about Sherman, and was a cheat in college. And then players being classless when they have players being suspended for drug use. Also to call out an organization that has five superbowls when yours has none. Get real Seahawk fans!

  • Melanie Barnert

    Why is this being overtalked. It’s straight out wrong. Sad.

  • Debbi Swears

    thats BS…and they have the nerve to bad mouth Sherman about his comments…this is poor sportsmanship!!!

  • Mark

    Looks as if Jim Harbaugh got pleasure out of it too. I used to really like Jim back to his QB days but Jim Harbaugh has turned into gutter trash right along with Kaepernick. Kaepernick is very close with Dr. Dre who is the Illuminati’s top recruiter, coincidence? I think not. It appears the spiders (49er’s) have a lot of thugs on their team.

  • Robert Walker

    And once he got back into the play… where was the hands to the face penalty?

  • SilverRyan0072

    I feel this guy should be banned from football altogether.
    This type of action should not be tolerated by anyone who is a figure for our
    youth. A clear message needs to be sent in regards to these types of actions,
    we don’t want to see this go on in any sport. Regardless of him owning up to
    it, the action he took shows us that his judgment is not what we want to be depict
    for our youth. If this was a Seahawk player that had done this, I would expect
    that Pete Carroll would remove that player from the team. I hope that the NFL
    sends a clear message regarding this fact and that the San Francisco 49’s sends
    the same message.

  • Seidan1

    He’s lucky he didn’t get a penalty for not returning in bounds fast enough. Look how deep into the sideline he is. The guy on the sideline was just trying to protect himself/get out of the way. First backwards “clothesline” I’ve ever seen

  • John Perry

    That guy should be hunted down & have assault charges filed against him plus they ( NFL) should fine the team.

  • Nick Woodhead

    Honestly I think because of the cheap shot it should have been a huge fine and an auto DQ

  • RiverMikeRat

    Looks like he wasn’t watching where he was going and ran into someone.

  • RiverMikeRat

    There’s a ref right there. If the Niner player had done something or even looked like he had done something, he would have thrown the flag. It was a Niner player supposedly doing something wrong, after all.

  • Isaiah3511

    When I first watched the video, I thought it was clearly a cheapshot. However, watch the video in slow motion and it looks like he takes a step back before the collision. He does NOT stick his arm out.

  • flipncrazy

    Simply this , it was an act of jelousy and hate. The 49rs aren’t going because they failed simple as that.It reminds me of a song the eagles sang caaled GET OVER IT………GO HAWKS

    • Matt Morin

      Yeah, we’re sure jealous of those ZERO Super Bowl rings.

      • I love things and stuff

        No heart, no dignity, no honor in doing things like this. A classless punk among other classless punks.

        All you can do is wave your rings. Cool thing is, I guess Seattle has 30 years to get said rings – just like SF.

        Ouch, see how that works?

        • Matt Morin

          You’re right.

          No heart to ever win a Super Bowl.
          No dignity in throwing popcorn on an injured opponent.
          No honor in making classless comments and utter lack of sportsmanship.

          Sherman certainly is a classless punk among a whole team of classless punks.

          Psst: All the Niners need to do is wave their rings. Because they have them to waive.

          Ouch, see how that works?

          • templestark

            Niners players? All perfect. Never cheap? I mean since you’re god and all powerful – clearly non-biased – judge of everything. But love blinds – as it appears to have with you. Enjoy next year, just not when playing the Hawks.

          • AngryCountryBoy

            I predicted 3 games this year and Seattle Beating them to go to the Big GAme –

            I expect Seattle back – SF after they pay Special K?

          • Matt Morin

            And what’s Seattle going to do when Sherman wants $20 million a year like Revis? Don’t think that isn’t coming…

            Maybe Seattle can trim their roster by getting rid of all the PED users…

            that’s all they will be doing – waving past (glory) rings.

            That’s the great thing about the past – it never goes away. It’s always there as a testament to who is the best.

    PS … I say its definatly

  • George Griffin

    it was payback for all the cheap shots from the peacocks on the field..The hit in the back then face mask grab and pull off helmet right before…. Hmmm . None of it is sportsmanship but the sideline hit was retaliation… still bad all this is showing what a great country of jerks we are becoming

    • CAPollyAnna

      Yeah, there were plenty of cheap shots by the Seahawks, but I don’t know what happened behind the guy on the sideline. I’d like to meet all of these people with x-ray vision!!

    • AngryCountryBoy

      Hmmmm…hand shake extended- crabtree smacks him in the face.

      Get real

  • Steve Wood

    You guys seriously don’t see that the guy is waving him through?? He’s not clotheslining him… he’s waving him through. I do that all the time… Hilarious.

    • templestark

      I suppose you just block punches with your face, too?

      • Steve Wood

        When was the last time you clotheslined someone w/ a waving arm? Give me a break.

    • AngryCountryBoy

  • dontworrydon

    What kills me is the 49 guys here who talk about Sherman and the popcorn but deny this cheap shot and say it is just a slip. So here are three truths for you. 1. Sherman was too amped but he still kicked your rear on the last throw. 2. Piss poor fans are piss poor fans no matter what the city. The popcorn throwers should not be allowed back in the stadium. 3. That was a cheap shot and the guy should be fined and booted from the sidelines.

  • scottd

    by this time next year 49ers fans will be begging the front office to bring back Alex Smith — and this load Harbaugh will be an afterthought after another couple of seasons.

  • AngryCountryBoy

    Who is the Guy that through the sideline the cheap shot?- Coach, Player, retired 49er???

  • Seahawk girl

    It looks to me like the 49er guy hit him as he ran by. You can clearly see the tail end of the follow through of the hit. This would be why his body turns afterwards. I don’t think he was trying to stare him down. I think the force of the hit made it look that way. This is my opinion. Cheap shot for sure.

  • Dean

    The Seahawk player was pushed about 7-8 yards out of bounds. By rule he is to come back in to the playing field right away. Instead he continues to run out of bounds in an area where 49er personnel are allowed to be. If Seahawk players weren’t such p*ssys he would never have been pushed out of bounds to begin with. The only cheap shots I saw at the game were pyling on Bowman after tearing his ACL. Then the fans throwing sh#t at him on his way out. Seattle funs are the punks. Period. I live in Seattle now. I used to not care one way or another about the Seahawks but after living up here, I’ve seen first hand all too often the childlike behavior of the Seahawks and their players. The only other city I know of that has to put undercover police to mix in with the crowd is Oakland. Seahawk fans are total lowlifes.

    • AngryCountryBoy

      WHAT film clip are you watching – what a bunch of biased fans you Forty “Whiner” fans are…

    Punk-ass move. Result of the Harbaugh culture! You can see he moves into Lane and deliberately hits him.

    • Tinwoods

      Another d-bag speaks his mind. Thank you for sharing.

  • Christian Dunn

    You have to make an effort to immediately return to the field. You can’t run down the sideline out of bounds. Still a little cheap but that’s why he did it; probably. Seahawk player could have been flagged.

  • Tom Lucas

    The NFL should investigate and get to the bottom of this. It appears that something happened and if the guy did hit the Seattle player a big fine and suspension should be in order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • John Elliott

    This is an everyday occurance in the NFL, so why make this incident special?

  • Sparks13

    About what you can expect from a 49′er. You didn’t think Crabs was the only classless member of that organization did you?

  • John Q Governor

    There was a time when the 49er’s were a respectable organization. Sad to see that time has passed.

  • Steven Shearon

    It amazes me that all the fans are comparing past titles and superbowls. The past doesn’t mean nothing unless the past records are set by the same team with the same players. Just like when breeze set a record. that record was set playing in a dome in a 16 game season. Marino set his record outside in a 14 game season. Breeze is a good QB in a dome but when he’s playing outdoors that is another story.

  • Forsaken294349

    Oh you can clearly see everything that happens on the sideline on this play. The dude is eating a sandwich there and then the play starts to develop so he puts his sandwich down and wipes off his hands before he strolls over to the sideline. He sets himself up and just at the right moment he bounces back against the ropes and with the slingshot rebound propelling him forward, he raises his arm and lays down a perfect clothesline. Afterwards, you can very clearly see that he’s thinking, “I must be the greatest!” It’s crystal clear. Just look at him! Nah, I’m just kidding. I’m trying to deflect attention away from the missed and erroneous calls made against the 49ers in that game. But those are much harder to see than this foul play.
