Richard Sherman cornerback for the Seahawks has been reported to be fined $7, 875 for his unsportsmen like behavior in the last game against the Seahawks and the 49ers that put the seahawks side into the Superbowl. The behavior that has led Richard Sherman to be fined is when Sherman supposedly mocked a 49er player after a game deciding interception which happened when Sherman deflected the pass and then was intercepted as a result of a bad pass from Micheal Crabtrees. Sherman after the interception ran over to the San Fransisco player and offered him a “mocking” handshake which Crabtree responded by shoving Sherman in the face. In another incident that led to officials penalizing Sherman, Sherman was seen making another mocking “choke” gesture over to Colin Kaepernick the quarterback to the 49ers. Sherman is yet to say anything about the fine. Football fans only hope that these unsportsman like antics do not ruin the SuperBowl on Super Sunday against the Broncos, a reason for the heavy fine may have just been a message to Sherman that antics like these will not be tolerated especially in the finals!
After the game Sherman later “ranted” on national tleviosn about Crabtree wich did not come across as great for Sherman… with some now calling him a thug, however this fine is said to be unconnected with the interview off the field.
