The best rivalry in the NFL today is unquestionably between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers. They met in January to decide the NFC Championship in a grueling, nail-biting contest that ended on a crazy interception in the end zone.
Call it “just the tip.”
That’s cornerback Richard Sherman tipping a pass from Colin Kaepernick to future Super bowl MVP Malcom Smith in the end zone. The pass was intended for 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree, who was a sorry sport about it. After the play, Sherman approached Crabtree, extended his hand and said “hell of a game.” In response Crabtree shoved him in the face.
In his now infamous post-game interview, Sherman lambasted Crabtree and instantly became the biggest villain in sports.
The feud between the two apparently goes back to a charity event for Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald. According to Sherman’s brother, Crabtree tried to start a fight with him. Now Sherman is rubbing it in Crabtree’s face every chance he gets. Apparently he’s signing autographs of the tip with a special message.
Sorry Crabtree. Not sorry.
I love this guy.
