Richard Sherman loves to run his mouth, but the Seattle Seahawks cornerback may be doing less of that during the offseason. Or, we should say, he might make himself unavailable to the media more often than he typically would.
Last week, 1090 The Fan’s Steve Sandmeyer Show reported that Sherman has decided to boycott some of the local Seattle media after the address of his new $2.31 million home was published. Sherman said fans have been showing up at his house for autographs, and he blames the Seattle Times and seattlepi.com for publishing the details of his big purchase.
According to Pro Football Talk, Curtis Crabtree of KJR radio has followed up by noting that Sherman has not said anything about boycotting the entire local media. Rather, he is simply upset that the two aforementioned publications linked to a real estate website containing his new address.
The buying and selling of real estate is public information, so fans could have figured out where Sherman’s new house is even if the Seattle Times didn’t publish the information. Perhaps Sherman is angry that the paper made it so easy for fans to track him down.
Will the so-called “boycott” stick? Sherman can’t live without running his mouth and making headlines. We’re going to say no.Google+
