Richard Sherman is not a Thug

People have been either saying Richard Sherman (cornerback, Seattle Seahawks) is a thug or coming to his defense after his comments proclaiming himself as the best cornerback in the NFL and Michael Crabtree as a “mediocre” receiver. Here are my thoughts.

I will probably do a follow up article and/or video on this, discussing the use of the word “thug” and the way we label our public figures, so if you have comments please share them. I’d love to respond to them next time.

You can see one of Sherman’s post-game interviews here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhO3znMf8xo.
