Richard Sherman and Longhorn Network Don’t Like Crabtree


Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman made a great play late in the fourth quarter of the NFC title game last night, denying ‘Niners wide receiver Michael Crabtree and sealing a 23-17 victory with a deflected pass.

However, Sherman’s efforts on the field were immediately overshadowed by his post-game antics on national television.

After slapping Crabtree on his rear and mocking ‘Niners QB Colin Kaepernick with a choking gesture, Sherman told Erin Andrews and the world exactly what he thought of himself and Crabtree.

Not long after, both Crabtree and Sherman took to Twitter regarding those and other post-game comments.

Sherman’s comments are dominating sports talk shows and Twitter today. Even the Longhorn Network decided to join in on the internet-wide trash talk party.
