So....who DID say it first???

I saw it... and I'm in the corner that says he just made a play that sealed his teams' win and sends them to the Superbowl.... so of course he's excited and pumped and trash-talking.
Would you want somebody NOT that excited?
Didn't see any interview after that.

I want to see Manning get beat.

I love the Hawks, but Sherman is a dick, that being said he is a danger to all quarterbacks. He is really the best. But an asshole. As long as we win the Superbowl, it's all good. Now lets talk about Kapernick, what a douche.

I liked it. It was a refreshing change from the carefully scripted speeches we get today. Stuff like "I practiced all my life to get to the point where I can contribute and make a play like that. My praise goes to my opponent, he is an awesome receiver, his team is great, they are tremendous competitors. Today it just so happened that we made a few more bigger plays when it counted. The whole team was a part of this from the owners, coaches, conditioning staff, and of course the fans, we couldn't have done it without the fans."

Yeah, give me more of the real stuff. If you walk the walk, you can talk the talk.

My best (female) friend of 25+ years is a director at the NFL and it drives her nuts that I dont watch nor give a rats ass about the television show called "NFL football". She gets me back by always reminding me that the NFL is a non profit organization and her salary is well above 6 figures. That always gets me to shut up.

She handled it wrong and I think that's a large part of the overreaction. She got to the guy shortly after he made a huge play and was jacked up. She obviously wasn't prepared. I'm sure he calmed down later. But FOX didn't want to wait, they wanted the most immediate interview with the game changer.

Acting like I've been here before...

How many here complain about NASCAR and how it has become so button down and corporate? ---"The racers used to have fist fights and raw emotion..."


And now we get a NFL player showing raw emotion and cluck cluck cluck... "He lacks class..."


I'm not in any way saying it was classy, it wasn't. But I liked it better than the stupid cliche riddled pap most players and coaches use.





Now, you want to talk planned lack of class-- look a Belichick with his comments on Welker. Sorry, Belichick your GM fucked up and lost a key player for you-- I know, your GM thought you could coach anyone up, but he wrote (or didn't) a check you as Head Coach couldn't cash. Now you are bitter.

I get it.

Yes, the hit was illegal in football terms-- pass interference is the term. But, hey your team is well known for running picks just like that. But was it the, "one of the worst plays I've seen." Bullshit.

That accusation lacks class, and was clearly planned from a bitter man-- who is supposed to be a "genius."

I think it was a legal hit. The ball arrived at the receiver at the same moment as Welker made contact. And he blocked him above the waist and below the head/neck area. I think Belichik and Welker must not be on good terms, and Belichick found a way to vent his anger at losing.

I agree about people wanting to see genuine emotion and then complaining when they get it.

Yeah, Sherman really lacks class.

"One thing I can't accept is what I read after the game about Seahawks fans throwing food at 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman as he was being carted off the field with his knee injury," Sherman wrote. "If it's true, it's beyond terrible. That's as low as it gets. I'm sure whoever did this is in a small minority of fans, because I don't think that kind of action is an accurate representation of the character of the 12th man. Bowman is a great player who plays the game the right way. When he went down, I dropped to a knee and prayed for him. He deserves better than having food thrown at him as he's carted off a field. All players deserve better than that."

So it's like 8 figures?

Maybe they were KLR owners trying to help the guy out?



I wish Sherman would have gone into Ric Flair mode and just started yelling "Woo!"

I used to like watching The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) interviews. I couldn't care less about the actual wrestling matches, but the interviews were fun.




On the news, they made it sound Sherman was threatening her. To me, it just looked like he was pumped up and yelling "In your face!" I thought they were supposed to do that, and find it funny that they taunt each other during the game. If they were all like that, I might just watch.
