NFL Network trolls 49ers WR Michael Crabtree on twitter


Well, it looks like you can add the NFL Network to the list of people that are getting in on the whole Richard Sherman-Michael Crabtree saga stemming form the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

As you probably know by know, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman went full-on WWE promo on Crabtree immediately after the game, sparking the internet to virtually explode.

Well, not long after the comments were made, Crabtree issued an immediate response, via his twitter account, urging both ESPN and the NFL Network to check the tape of the game, even going so far as to call Sherman fake.

So, in fairness, the NFL Network took the bait and issued a response of their own.


There you have it, Crabtree. You and everyone else can watch the tape because the NFL Network is going to air it nationally and they just wanted to point that out.

Top to bottom, this has probably been the most fun night of sports in years, and it just keeps getting better.
