I keep seeing this and do not understand it at all. When did it become okay for people to conduct themselves with no common decency, especially prominent athletes who become role models for kids? It's chickens**t to refuse to hold someone to a standard of conduct simply because he is on your favorite sports team. I hated VD's antics when he first entered the league and didn't respect him as a result. Love the guy now.
Agreed...you act like this at work, you're fired. Period. In the NFL you get a small fine and forced to apologize. His track record proves he's an instigator and loves the attention...self-promoting for that #1 CB $. Kids WILL see this and think it's cool and Hawk fans and media guys (mostly for talking point) will justify it b/c he made a big play in a big game. Period. The last time we had someone road rage like this for self-promotion (or mental health reasons) we sent them to the Cowboys and Raiders!
Yes. Even if some Niner fans did approve of this extreme behavior I believe the offending player would recieve some sort of discipline from this organization and/or coaching staff. Case in point VD, Aldon Smith and Chris Culliver. Although I didn't agree with the timing of the Culliver blowup during Super Bowl week I can understand from our organization's viewpoint how his words and actions reflect upon the 49ers. I guess Seahawk fans and their organization could care less as this is not the first time Sherman put himself above the team. Did you notice how the Seahawks were waiting to bring back Brandon Browner despite his repeated offenses with substance abuse and PEDs? The scumbag organization would have him on the roster right now if the league would allow it. We on the other hand asked Aldon voluntarily to admit himself and get help without the league having to suspend him
