Sherman is a Seahawk, period.
"If you don't like the Seahawks, go play fantasy football...with your wife. If you don't like Seattle, then you're an old fart. This is the Buddy Ryan Eagles/'85 Bears reincarnated in an age that style of football has no business dominating in. They beat their chests like pro wrestlers, they fill the bulletin board on weekly basis and they beat the living bejeezus out of their opponents on sundays."
This has absolutely nothing to do with the issue. The Cowboys did this too. Jimmy Johnson and Michael Irvin and company would talk and talk and talk and then they would back it up by beating you. That is TOTALLY different from Dick Sherman.
As much as I hated Michael Irvin, he would NEVER act with a total disregard for sportsmanship and self respect the way Dick does. Sherman is taking the very idea of "RESPECT", and pissing on it, and laughing about it as he does it.
Talking is one thing, but showing a lack of respect at all times is completely different.
