No excuses for Seahawks' loudmouthed player

Published: Monday, Jan. 20, 2014 - 1:10 pm

Re “Sherman makes play, then makes noise” (Page C7, Jan. 20): I was a bit disturbed by the article The Bee printed by Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star. It makes excuses for the offensive interview behavior of Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman after Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. I accept a certain amount of trash talking on the football field and recognize the emotional intensity of a game leading to the Super Bowl. However, the after-game behavior Sherman displayed should not be excused by the media or the National Football League. This is professional football, and it should be conducted as such. Coaches and players can be fined for comments about referees after a game. I suggest the NFL implement rules to discourage future behavior like Sherman’s. One thing I do agree with in the article is that there is another game: Go, Broncos.
