Kevin Harlan calls Erin Andrews a drama queen over handling of Richard Sherman interview

When Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman went off on San Francisco 49ers Michael Crabtree, a lot of people criticized him. Particularly they criticized them because it seems like he was taking it out on Erin Andrews, an innocent bystander. Well at least one person is complaining about how Erin Andrews handled the situation, and that would be broadcaster Kevin Harlan.

From CBS Radio in Pittsburgh on Thursday:

“I don’t know if she was unprepared, her reaction was more about her than the guy,” Harlan said. “It was very odd. If you go back and look at that interview, her reaction was more like drama queenish.”

“If Michelle Tafoya or someone like that were interviewing, I can’t help believe that she wouldn’t have asked the appropriate followup and been a little bit more composed,” Harlan added. “Whereas the gal that was asking the questions was almost like she was on a stage. It wasn’t about her, it’s all about him, and the more I think about it, the more irritated I get.”

Harlan was specifically referring to, I think, the question when she asked “who is talking about you?” I think the point he is making is that she took it personally, as if she assumed he was talking about her and not Crabtree. Still, an interesting and unique take on it.
