Richard Sherman explains his actions in column for Sports Illustrated’s ‘MMQB’


When Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman went on his now infamous post game rant on Sunday on 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree following the team’s huge win in the NFC Championship Game, all people wanted were answers. Why did Sherman do this? What sparked such public outrage? How could he act like such a “thug?”

Well, ironically enough, Sherman took the time once again to get together with Sports Illustrated and Peter King to pen his own column for their MMQB feature entitled, “To Those Who May Call Me a Thug or Worse…”

It was loud, it was in the moment, and it was just a small part of the person I am. I don’t want to be a villain, because I’m not a villainous person.

That above is just a small piece of the subject that Sherman goes into great detail to explain. Whether or not it will change someone’s opinion, well that remains to be seen. It won’t change everyone’s view, but it will definitely turn at least some heads that jumped to conclusions on Sunday night.
