The Debate Over Sherman's Post-Game Rant

The Debate Over Sherman's Post-Game Rant

A prime-time post game interview featuring Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman has many in KELOLAND talking about sportsmanship. While some loved watching his fired-up take minutes after a big play, others think he went too far in calling out another player.

With the NFC Championship and a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, Sherman made a remarkable play. The Seahawks went on to the beat the 49ers. And while the win is big news, a lot of people are on social media talking about Sherman's post-game interview.

"I mean it's great to be one of the best players and people will see that in how you play and through your stats, but when you go out and kind of say it in that fashion, it's kind of a big turnoff for me, at least," former weight room intern with the Chicago Bears Justin Soukup said.

Soukup is one of several fans disappointed in Sherman's speech after the game.

"I mean it was a great play but I always like throwing it back towards the team," Soukup said.

On the flip side, Dale Moss has spent time in several NFL locker rooms and he says that's just Sherman.

"Anybody who's followed Richard Sherman knows that he's going to say what he wants when he wants. That's him. He's not going to change for anybody," Moss said.

While Moss says speaking out isn't something he could see himself doing, he understands that in a physical game, people find different ways to motivate themselves.

"I don't think it was necessary but that's just him as a player. That's what gets him going. They're going to the Super Bowl so, it's hard for anyone to tell him anything," Moss said.

And you can bet with Super Bowl media day just ahead, we haven't heard the last of it from Sherman.

Moss says the buzz around Sherman is a shame because he does a lot in the community and from what he's heard, is a great teammate.
