Stop being stupid. He's passive aggressive, narcissistic, egomaniac, insecurity complex. He runs up slaps Crabtree in the rear. gets in his grill and starts talking trash. I would punch him and you would too. After the choke neck symbol too. He's a thug. Stop making excuses for him. He talks all day long and and irritates people until they want to take a swing at him. He knows exactly what he is doing. Then it's poor little me. I'm just a great sport and everybody hates me.
Sherman ain't a "thug". Dude is an attention whore and a douche. A real thug will get his hands dirty whereas Sherman is just a mouthy antagonist that happens to be a great player in Pete's scheme in this league. Sherman is an insecure wannabe premier crossover athlete and these next 2 weeks he will get his wish but real bros know that when it comes to scrapping Sherman is going to fall back for protection. He will have his hands in his pockets when its time to scrap. Just look at the incidents with Trent and Crab. Amongst the bros this is exactly why Crab said that he (Sherman) is a TV guy and that Sherman knows what time it is. The players know what type of dude Sherman is and they appreciate that he is trying to get paid and get the spotlight but there is little to no respect for him as a man. Now Lynch would be thugging for real if not for football but Sherman would be at a desk job. He ain't ready for combat. He just talks a good game and knows that on the field he is protected by the NFL and his teammates but he ain't reached nobody quite like Ray Lewis did except maybe the impressionable young rookies or something. Don't make me laugh calling Sherman a thug. A "punk" and a great player is more like it. Now I am not advocating for thuggery nor am I trying to say that it is admirable but what I am saying is that don't talk like one if you can't be one, especially for show. And he is intelligent enough and well spoken but just because he graduated Stanford with a degree that I could obtain with one eye closed doesn't mean that I should worship him as some in the media would have me believe. For one, i know my education was much harder to obtain than his was being that it is math and science related. The second reason I can't respect him is that I can't stand a man that mouths off like a tough guy for show but behind closed doors is a coward. I do however respect him as both a great player and an entertainer
