Richard Sherman gives choke sign, pats Michael Crabtree on butt after interception, rants (Video)

Richard Sherman choke

This is exactly why people hate Richard Sherman, and exactly why Seattle loves him.

After making an incredible play to tip a pass from Colin Kaepernick to Michael Crabtree into the air to set up an interception that sent Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl, Sherman gave Crab a pat on the butt and then gave the choke sign to the Niners.

Richard Sherman pat butt

Sherman was penalized for a personal foul for taunting, not that it mattered at that point.

Sherman has become known for his trash talking ways, but after making plays like that, he’s able to get away with his cocky behavior. He just knows that nobody will ever confuse him for classy with the way he behaves.

Then, after taunting Crabtree and the 49ers, Sherman took it next level by calling Crabtree a “sorry receiver” after the game:

Around The Web

  • Cary Fulbright

    Sherman just embarrassed the NFL, and should be suspended for a game. Even the network had to turn away from it, it was so ugly.

  • Peggy Viney

    They aren’t showing where Crabtree pushed Sherman’s head. So, it was a two way street.

  • The Good Bad n UgLy

    There is only one thing to say about Richard Sherman. This little child is quite the immature thug we all knew him to be.

  • TheEsquireof212

    Pull the schlong out of your culo. PLEASE.

  • TheEsquireof212

    Nice euphemism there with the “thug”. Does the word you really want to use get censored here, yeah?

  • Ron Bevins

    The beloved Gary Peyton reincarnated but in a different sport. He went a little over the top but he’s laying the ground work for intimidating Crab next year. Psychological warfare. If you like Seattle teams, you should love Sherman.

  • Cary Fulbright

    Would you please put that in English so I can understand what you mean?

  • Cary Fulbright

    Are you playing the “racism” card? It’s so easily done, but it’s no more than a Puritan in Salem calling “witch”. And it’s power wears off with over-ue.

  • B. Martin

    Actually, he patted him on the ass, and then offered his hand to shake; which is when Crabtree pushed him by the facemask; Sherman responded with a choke hand sign and was penalized.

  • DadAltman

    I seem to recall Sherman getting lit up for about 140yds and 2 TDs by another good pocket passer in week 5 and Manning is light years ahead of Luck at this stage. Keep talking stooge.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    He’s saying stop being such a huge pussy. People like you are what is causing the NFL to be so boring.

  • Cary Fulbright

    You’re both idiots.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    What an insightful and well thought retort Cary. We don’t need your over sensitive bitching cynicism in the NFL.

  • Azazello

    A brash post-game interview embarrassed the NFL? I disagree. Some people laughed, and some thought it was classless. And that’s fine, people have a right to their opinions. However, your call for a suspension is ridiculous, as Sherman did not use any profanity in his rant, nor did he make any inappropriate gestures towards the camera. Last I checked, being loud doesn’t violate any FCC standards.

    Fans want to see the best players compete in the Super Bowl, and you are the first person I’ve encountered to suggest Sherman be suspended for that game. Roger Goodell and the discipline committee would laugh your suggestion out of the room.

  • Cary Fulbright

    Disqus – do you mean to be this funny? You must be a crack-up in person.

  • Cary Fulbright

    Azazello – I appreciated your thoughtful comments, right up until the last sentence.

    If you don’t think the NFL was embarrassed by Sherman’s rant, why did CBS cut away so quickly from that interview? And this is exactly the kind of thing that Goddell is bothered by. He doesn’t like anything that embarrasses the league, and this was clearly embarrassing.

    So while you may disagree with my view, I think you’re wrong if you don’t think the discipline committee is considering some serious action.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    Dance monkey dance. I expect a prompt reply, add your fragile ego clearly can’t stand not having the last word, yet you can’t think of anything substantial to say. Thus your lame responses in an attempt to massage your insecurity.

    It goes well with your crybaby reaction to this video of Sherman.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    I believe you were seeking the word “its.”

    Thug is a very specific term in this case, and it’s clear what connotations were being implied. Don’t fool yourself. Racism still exists, and if you don’t believe it does, you’re very sheltered.

  • Azazello

    To be clear, I wrote that your call for a suspension would be laughed out of the room because Mr. Goodell and the competition committee wouldn’t penalize the Seattle fans, and others who want to see the best teams at full strength in the Super Bowl. The NFL could be looking over the tape right now, and they may decide a fine is necessary. I don’t rule that out. I just think it’s unlikely, and if it were to happen I would disagree with the decision.

  • Cary Fulbright

    Where did you learn your debating skills? They’re really quite impressive. If I don’t reply, bullies like you win. If I do reply, you say, “nya nya, told you so”.

    I was raised in a more respectful era and environment than you evidently were. No one would have behaved as Sherman behaved, and no one else would defend it or value it as a positive part of the NFL game. We would have called it thuggish, and that was at a time when you could use the word “thug” without being accused of racism.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    You are the bully, and I feel bad for you. This is the NFL, not your crocheting club.

  • Cary Fulbright

    Discus – did you just get out for recess? I wondered what happened to you.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    How rude. You truly are a hypocrite for complaining about abrasive behavior and then resorting to it yourself. Truly pathetic, and I feel bad for you.

  • Cary Fulbright

    Oh Discus, I see I got under your skin. I’m so sorry. I thought I was the thin-skin whiner here, but I guess crocheting needles can be pretty painful.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    I really feel bad for you. This is why you have no friends.

  • Cary Fulbright

    Weak

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    No, seriously. I’m not trying to insult you anymore. I truly do feel bad for you.

  • Cary Fulbright

    As I clearly value your opinion, that means so much to me.

  • mickrussom

    SF choked. HARD. Its the damn truth. He was amped and later apologized, but please, stop being so BUTT HURT. Its AMPED! He did choke. And I was for SF to win. Stop being BUTT HURT. Stop the vagninification and feminization of the USSA.

  • mickrussom

    Yep. Manginas that have been vaginified, emasculated and feminized by communists, panty-waists and scared sheeple. MAN UP. Learn to play with passion and win big and lose with humility.

  • mickrussom

    MAN UP. Stop being a Mangina.

  • mickrussom

    We need more MEN. No more manginas, vaginified milquetoasts. MAN UP.

  • Cary Fulbright

    I don’t think I know what “BUTT HURT” means, nor what the second “S” stands for. But I don’t think calling for a little dignity and humility will cause the “vagninification” of the NFL. If its does, it’s a much weaker organization that we all think.

    People like Sherman are the reason why many fathers don’t take their children to NFL games anymore. The rude and thuggish behavior by players and fans are bad examples.

  • mickrussom

    Thats right. We NEED RICHARD SHERMANs. Real men. Work hard. Play hard. Fear God. Apologize for transgressions but BE A MAN. We need more MEN. No more manginas, vaginified milquetoasts. MAN UP.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    Your sarcasm is cute. If you’re being honest, then you’re an extremist, for sure.

  • disqus_2c6itm7tkq

    Relax kiddo.

  • mickrussom

    Your respectful era? You red diaper doper baby 1960’s liberal piece of TRASH? YOu RUINED this country with panty waisted milque-toast mangina vaginified femmes.

  • mickrussom

    He has sand in his vagina.

  • mickrussom

    We need more MEN. No more manginas, vaginified milquetoasts. MAN UP. YEAH!

  • Cary Fulbright

    How about winning with humility? And how about not stereotyping an SF fan as a communist panty waist? I’m a married father of two registered Republican. I don’t need to prove my manhood to you. If you think being respectful of the game and other players is “milquetoast”, then I can’t respect your values.

  • mickrussom

    We need more MEN. No more manginas, vaginified milquetoasts. MAN UP. Yeah. RICHARD SHERMAN. Winner, man, God-fearing, MAN! Yeah! And he even apologized later. I was going for the 49ers but they DID CHOKE. They deserve the lampooning.

  • mickrussom

    We need more MEN. No more manginas, vaginified milquetoasts. MAN UP.

  • Cary Fulbright

    Mick – you’re uninformed. See my later post. I’ve voted Republican every election since 1976.

  • Rob West

    The Nfl will never suspend him cuz its taking from there pockets. But they can suspend every body else tho. He need to be taught a lesson

  • N., Mark

    What is lost in all of this is the failure to put Sherman to task at what he said at the very end of his interview with EA. Sherman can be heard clearly stating M.O.B. (Member of Bloods). This should be an extremely fine-able offense. The irony in all this is the FS1 aired a piece earlier in the day on how Sherman had triumphed in surviving the gang saturated streets of Compton.

  • Nadia

    You’re a complete idiot, not to mention a racist. He said LOB. Legion of Boom. You think he’d mention gang affiliations on live national TV? How moronic can you possibly be?

  • Keg

    Sherman came in and instigated Crabtree, and you know it.

  • Keg

    Possibly a fine for the choking gesture. No way he is suspended for Super Bowl.

  • Keg

    Go watch Hockey then.

  • Keg

    We do not know what was said.

    And if you seriously think that Sherman was going up to Crabtree, to congratulate him, right after getting the game winning tip; I have a bridge to sell you.
