The biggest take away almost everybody has from the Seattle Seahawks win in the NFC Championship game over the San Francisco 49ers was that Richard Sherman will not be golfing with Michael Crabtree this offseason. After his epic and now infamous post-game rant with Erin Andrews, more videos are popping up that feature Sherman ripping into Crabtree.
Following his interview with Andrews and FOX Sports, Sherman was taken aside by Ed Werder and ESPN. Sherman had calmed down a bit at this point, but still managed to slay Crabtree yet again without even missing a beat.
ESPN didn’t quite get the rambunctious interview that took Erin Andrews by surprise, but they did get another soundbite of Sherman digging the knife further into the Niners chest and twisting.
If one thing is certain from all of this, besides Sherman’s now irreconcilable feud with Crabtree, it’s that this rivalry between the Niners and Seahawks just went nuclear. It was a great rivalry before, but this single incident has helped push the rivalry over the edge to become perhaps the greatest modern rivalry we have.
Not that it wasn’t already, but the next batch of matchups between these two teams will be must-watch television. Even non-sports fans can get invested in this rivalry as Richard Sherman has helped take this from a rising rivalry to the best one in sports.
