Richard Sherman graciously decided to celebrate his victory with a tirade. Approached by Erin Andrews of Fox, he decided to dispense with the humble, self-effacing, magnanimous post-game interview that is the preserve of so many American sporting figures.
He offered no thanks to his Lord Jesus Christ, but had several words for "mediocre" wide receiver Michael Crabtree. He also proffered the view (very forcefully) that he was "the best corner back in the game" and again implored Crabtree not to "talk about me!" The pair took their disagreement on to Twitter afterwards.
There was a lot of talk before the game.... Now I'm the bad guy lol.... Well if u judge my character on the field ....So many glass houses
