The Commissioner of the National Football League has finally spoken out about Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s comments after last Sunday’s NFC Conference Championship win last week.
“It’s an emotional game, and you see a young man who comes off the field and he’s pumped up, and there’s so much excitement in the stadium, but no, I’m not cheering for that because he’s a great young man, he’s extremely well spoken, does great things off the field, obviously a great player on the field. I want him to present himself in the best possible way, and make sure that he’s reflecting on himself and his family in a positive way,” said Commissioner Roger Goodell. “He took away a little bit from the team. That was what he said yesterday. I thought that was a very interesting comment and I think it’s fair.”
Will the All-Star cornerack listen to the commissioner? It’s hard to tell. Sherman has always been a vocal player both on and off the football field.
