The article written for the Huffington Post here is fucking stupid. It’s been making its rounds on Facebook and what not and it is just plain stupid.
“He taught us that we’re still a country that isn’t ready for lower-class Americans from neighborhoods like Compton to succeed. We’re still a country that can’t decipher a person’s character. But most of all, he taught us that no matter what you overcome in your life, we’re still a country that can’t accept someone if they’re a little louder, a little prouder, or a little different from the people we surround ourselves with.”
Yes, because everyone who said anything negative about his post-game interview definitely meant it in the context of him coming out of Compton. Totally. Everyone was just thinking, “Where’d this lowlife come from? Compton? Classic.” Shut up Isaac Saul. This article is bad and you should feel bad. People got mad because no one in football is allowed to call anyone out like that. Even in Bart Scott’s infamous CAN’T WAIT! interview, he didn’t call out any players directly. As soon as Ringworm Sherm starts using names everybody’s panties get in a bunch.
Respect is earned not given. Clearly neither Crabtree nor Sherman respect each other, so Sherman called him out. I have no idea why people are so mad about it. Its mind boggling. Crabtree apparently tried to fight Sherman at a charity event and people expect Sherman to just come out all Tom Brady, “You know they’re a good football team and despite him trying to fight me, he’s a good player and a good person, but only one of us could win. I’m just glad it was me.” Fucking lame. You want to put fucking reporters on the field seconds after the final play of a huge game like that fine. You want to live vicariously through the people you’re watching fine. Then you can’t get all mad when you see a real display of emotion. Grow up America.
P.S. I had no idea 1) that RIchard Sherman’s nickname was Ringworm Sherm, but that’s pretty awesome. 2) He graduated with a 4.2. That’s basically straight As no matter how you scale grades. Pretty fucking impressive. Go Seahawks! Prove that Manning is the choke artist I hope he is!
