A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

More Nonsense From Richard Sherman

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on January 22, 2014

Richard Sherman is doing his usual post-dust up, mop up job of another one of his cry baby melt downs. Sherman is a smart guy, he’s quite good at diverting attention away from his behavior. This time it’s racism that was the REAL problem. All the idiots on twitter who vented their racist ways towards him. Is he really SHOCKED that racism is still alive in America? Of course it is. We saw a good example of it from our ex-resident Dennis the other day. There are ignorant people in the world. They aren’t going away.

But racism is not the issue with what Sherman did. It is a separate issue. The common theme always attached to Sherman: It’s always about what someone else did to him. He talked about *being in the zone* and some other stuff. What I wish Rachel Nichols had asked him is this: “Richard, why do so many people want to punch you in the face?” Is Trent Williams racist? Did Crabtree push your helmet after your fake-ass handshake because he’s racist?

Professional athletes are role models. They are role models no matter how many times they say they aren’t role models. And yes, real life adults in children’s lives can do damage control after outbursts like Sherman’s, we can have conversations with our kids about sportsmanship, how to win and lose with dignity; we can talk to our kids about all of that. But at the end of the day, they still admire him. They look up to him. He’s in the freaking NFL, that alone trumps most of the things we tell our kids about what is WRONG with Sherman. They see the money, the fame, the hair, the WIN and they look up to that.

Yes, he went to Stanford. Everyone knows that. There are a lot of smart people who went to Stanford who I don’t admire or look up to.

Sportsmanship is one of the most important things you can teach a youngster. It’s not always innate. And guys like Richard Sherman just make it harder on the “real people” in the world who are assigned the day to day job in the trenches with teaching kids the right way to win and the right way to lose. Screw him.

    Reports…Tanaka signs with the Yanks 7/155
    Great news for the flap and all Giant fans, that the Despicable Dodgers didn’t land him for their rotation!

    The *disrespected* card, which of course is usually played by those who have zero respect for anyone else who happens to be on any team other than theirs.
    Didn’t Sherman come to Stanford as a wide out first year or two before shifting to secondary? I’d be interested to know the backstory to that one, but it sounds like DB was his road to the NFL…paved by Stanford coaching staff. I really could not care less about SB and refuse to read all the BS about it for next 2 weeks.

    OK now that T is off the market, let’s see what shakes out with remaining FA SPs. Lot of talk here months ago about this I know, but there are still top flight guys out there. Who is best fit for SF needs? How much $$$/yrs?

    Mac, saw your note. 14 pts in a varsity game? Shot clock in your league (30 seconds for girls here, 35 for boys)? I remember a game during UCLA Wooden heydays vs. USC where the final score was something like 20-18 because SC stalled. SC was usually good too–Gus Williams (too short career with GS) was a monster.

    • unca_chuck said, on January 22, 2014 at 9:23 am

      I think he blew out his knee sophomore year, and was told he should probably switch to DB. I think he had 1,300 yards as a WR.

    • Macdog said, on January 22, 2014 at 10:19 am

      WillieD, no shot clock in NJ. I’m pretty sure N.Y. has it and maybe even Pa., but Jersey is still in the stone age as far as that goes.

  5. Chipower9 said, on January 22, 2014 at 9:07 am

    Great thread. I circled back and caught-up with yesterday’s thread, and the term “shit stirrer” came up frequently in regards to Sherman. He is a bright guy, but also an attention whore. Dude should take some lessons in humility. He is one of the best (if not the best) corner in the game. Would be great to see him take a page from Bowman or Willis’ page.

    Someone mentioned Kershaw’s deal yesterday, too (roughly 1 mil per start). And someone mentioned Tiger at about 11k per stroke.

    Kershaw, assuming about 100 pitches per game, translates to about 10k PER PITCH. WTF…

    Tanaka set to sign with the YankMees for 155 mil/7 years. Hallelujah he will not be a Bum, or even in the NL. I would have loved to seen him in the Orange and Black, but not for that duration/amount.

    Only 23 days until pitchers and catchers report.

  6. Nipper said, on January 22, 2014 at 9:18 am

    Now for two months of basketball. Yikes and I used to like this game.

  7. unca_chuck said, on January 22, 2014 at 9:22 am

    Well, not to pile on here, but this is the environment that Pete Carroll fosters. He was a heavy-handed prick at USC who regularly poured on the points at all costs against crappy teams. His players love him for the ‘fun loose’ environment he provides. But clowning and disrespecting the other team is par for the course on his teams.

    Both Baldwin and Sherman said they didn’t like Harbaugh but they respected him as a coach. They didn’t like the idea of subsuming the ‘i’ for the greater good of the team. Harbaugh wouldn’t take that kind of shit on a pro team. Kaepernick catches heat for doing Newton’s superman thing, but he didn’t do it at Newton, and he didn’t trash him after the game. Sherman’s choker sign directed AT Kappy, and his comments about Crabs were individual type things that he knows will generate buzz. And then he acts hurt that people react to it.

    Can’t have it both ways, skippy.

  8. zumiee said, on January 22, 2014 at 9:31 am

    Yeah, the gap between what’s allowed in behavior for the pros and everybody else is huge, especially in basketball. In every level below pros, basketball players aren’t even allowed to give the refs dirty looks, much less question their calls. It’s tough for some youth players to learn that. They get technical fouls trying to behave like the pros.
    Last night, Grant Napear had had enough at one point. The Kings were up by 21 points, with about 4 minutes left in the game, and a foul was called on one of the Kings, and the King’s player argued the call with the ref, and got a technical. (It wasn’t Cousins, miraculously.) And Napear, the Kings play-by-play guy went off, something like “Why does every call in an NBA game have to be questioned by the players?! You’re up by 21! Let it go, for God’s sake!”
    Expressing the feeling a lot of the fans felt while watching it.

  9. zumiee said, on January 22, 2014 at 9:46 am

    I like a lot of things about Harbaugh, but something I don’t like is his interaction with the refs, especially when Harbaugh goes into Tazmanian Devil mode about a call. I just think in some way it detracts from a team’s focus. Just my opinion.

    • blade3colorado said, on January 22, 2014 at 11:00 am

      Very few people in Denver like the 49ers, much less Harbaugh. I have a few friends that are Green Bay Packers fans and they abhor Harbaugh for the very reason you cited Zumiee. When he goes out on the field to dispute a call (which he did recently), what moral/high horse standard does he have to admonish one of his own players for losing their cool in the last few minutes of a football game? Please explain that because I sure don’t see it.

      Me? I could give a rat’s ass what Harbaugh does for 2 reasons: 1. I’m way more of a Giants fan and 49er fan circa Eddie D. era; and most important, 2. Harbaugh is a winner that turned a once proud, but totally dysfunctional pathetic loser team (on par with the Raiders) into a model organization again from top to bottom. Business schools could learn much from what he accomplished in his short time as 49er head coach.

    Sherman makes Yasshole Pigface look like a stand-up guy–that’s how obnoxious he is.

  11. John said, on January 22, 2014 at 10:24 am

    Seattle fans and talk radio are bending over backward to make excuses for Dick Sherman, showering him with praise and telling anyone who’ll listen what a good human being he is. He does a lot of community work with kids, he’s a Stanford alum and he’s very bright. Clearly, he’s worked his tail off to get where he is. He’s also, in my opinion, just another punk, something we all saw after Sunday’s game. His attitude stinks. My guess is he has an underlying and deep-seated insecurity that fuels this behavior.

    My question is, do the good things he does excuse his boorish behavior? He never stops talking bullshit, on and off the field. It’s pretty clear that the man is reviled around the league (though I wil grant that he can take a punch), because he never shuts up. You do not see Marshawn Lynch, Kam Chancellor or Earl Thomas, all top-shelf football players, publicly behaving this way. They jaw on the field (Marshawn, not so much), like a lot of NFL guys, but that’s where it stays.

    I really wouldn’t mind championship-starved Seattle getting their first title since 1979, but I just can’t pull for any team that has that loud-mouthed turd on its roster.

    Go Broncos.

  12. dirtnrocksnomo said, on January 22, 2014 at 10:37 am

    I am surprised to see Sherman’s act have so much traction. Kap and Crabtree both talk shit on the field. All the players seem to on some level. Was it over the top? Sure, but I don’t have a problem with any of it. It will be interesting to see if Manning lights him up. Speaking of Manning. I saw a show with him on NFL network last night. One of those audio on the field deals. Dude is kinda funny. For a Tom Hanks impersonator. Also, what’s up with Jimmy Johnson? When did he start looking like a miniature version of Bill Clinton?

    • James said, on January 22, 2014 at 11:22 am

      I think it’s because of the raw anger he vented at the world for not recognizing just how cool he is. There was not the smallest bit of playful arrogance.

  13. snarkk said, on January 22, 2014 at 10:42 am

    I’m getting some chuckles of all this sports radio and media chatter about Sherman, a lot of which is excusing his rant somehow because he’s “smart”. As if, hey, a smart football player is a rarity, so Sherman must be accorded deference to do what he does. Let’s get real, this is not this guy’s first rodeo with being a “look at me” ass in public, this was just the biggest stage so far, and he miscalculated. IMO, intelligence doesn’t equate to civility. And, given the blowback he’s rightly gotten for his behavior, I’m not seeing how Sherman is that “smart” anyhow, at least about how to formulate a public image. His act may play in Seattle, because it has to there, but it’s not playing well everywhere else. All it does is give the media a totally overblown story to focus on for this off week before the SB countdown week…

  14. blade3colorado said, on January 22, 2014 at 10:44 am

    Tanaka a Yankmee . . . Bums run out of money?

  15. blade3colorado said, on January 22, 2014 at 11:14 am

    More money in the Giants coffers as this dumb ass signing ensures that the Yankees’ payroll figure will exceed $189 million for the 2014 season. If you recall, “baby” Steinbrenner spoke often about how it was a goal, but not a mandate, to get below that figure in order to take advantage of luxury-tax benefits. I still think the Red Sox are the team to beat in the AL East.

  16. James said, on January 22, 2014 at 11:17 am

    The fact that Tanaka didn’t sign with the Dodgers means they now have a much weaker rotation, right? It feels that way, at least.

    • blade3colorado said, on January 22, 2014 at 11:35 am

      Are you serious? Dodgers are still “crème de la crème,” while we are that powdered shit you get at 7Eleven and truck stops. 😉

  17. unca_chuck said, on January 22, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    Even more stupid about this is Sherman now being all butt-hurt over the negative reaction to his antics. He’s playing the victim in all the hyperbolic vitriol generated in the blogosphere. Yeah, he’s going to get hundreds of cretins responding to his antics.

    But to now play the victim in ths whole thing is passive-aggressive behavior at its finest. It’s exactly like him trying to shake Crabtree’s hand while dogging his ass.

    If you don’t want the heat, don’t start the fire.

  21. blade3colorado said, on January 22, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    New posting rules are a windfall for Tanaka (and probably for future Japanese players). Yu Darvish agreed to a six-year, $60 million deal with the Rangers after the team won his negotiating rights with a $51.7 million posting bid. He is 29-18 in two seasons with Texas, striking out 498 batters in 401 innings. Not only is Darvish a way better pitcher than Tanaka IMO, but he’s also a bargain in comparison.

  22. Nipper said, on January 22, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    I don’t give a damn about the Yankees. BLEEP Tanaka!

    • SanDawg said, on January 22, 2014 at 3:53 pm

      I don’t give a damn about the Yankees either—which makes them the perfect team to sign Tanaka.
      GREAT news in my book.
      The whole Sherman story bores the piss out of me. He’s a helluva player who acts like an ass sometimes. Join the club.
      This won’t be a popular take around these parts, but I find Carroll more likable than Harbaugh—though the Twitter photo of Harbaugh posing with a fan while purchasing pleated Khakis at Wal Mart in Indianapolis did score big points with me. Probably goes without saying, but I’m not a huge huge Niner guy. I follow them closely and root for them—mainly cuz my son likes them so much, but my team is the Chiefs.

      • unca_chuck said, on January 22, 2014 at 4:29 pm

        Carroll’s act wore thin with me when he would allow his USC teams to taunt and diss opponents and he would run the score up relentlessly on inferior beaten teams. Frankly I loved it when Harbaugh returned the favor.

        Now that they are both in the NFC West only makes this shit more crazy.

    What does a Giants fan do when the high temp for the day was twelve below zero with the wind blowing at 20 mph? Don’t even ask me to calculate the windshield factor. Took close to an hour to schlep in the wood for both stoves and feeding and watering Macoujoe and the outdoor puss department. Then back to standing close to the stove and turning to a stash of NY Times business sections from October of 2012. Whaaat? you say. Ain’t you sposta be retirded? Why the business section? Big investment decisions? Not quite hardly.

    Back pages of section B in the NYT happens to be where they park Tyler Kepner and the rest of their sports reporters and October of 2012? Hope i don’t hafta tell anybody here why i was alternately chuckling, tearing up and laughing out loud. Was too busy outdoors during that wonderful month to even read the coverage at the time. But reading about the achievement of their second Market Street parade in three years was sure a nice way to beat up on a helluva nasty, cold January afternoon.

    In February it all begins again. I like our chances.

      we are in a serious drought here and the local weather man is literally a broken record. Lately, he’s started showing us weather from other parts of the country just to mix it up a little. And I swear to God I thought of Stix this morning while he was doing that part of the country.

      • unca_chuck said, on January 22, 2014 at 5:09 pm

        Yeah, I have friends in Ft Collins Colo who were going through a drought these last few winters. They can’t keep the snow away now.

        This is getting like the mid-late 70s when we had like 4 years of way below normal rainfall. The valley is going to burn this summer.

  25. unca_chuck said, on January 22, 2014 at 5:12 pm

    8 years ago a bill was shot down to build more aquifers in the foothills to save all the excess runoff that just runs into the bay. 4 years ago they were dumping millions of gallons of water out of Folsom Lake, and a bunch of other lakess, to keep them from overflowing their dams.


    • blade3colorado said, on January 22, 2014 at 5:22 pm

      Aquifers? Chuck, I don’t mean to correct you, but I worked for the Bureau of Reclamation . . . An “aquifer” is a natural water reservoir located underground, i.e., you don’t build them. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquifer

      I think you meant to say a reservoir or above ground water supply system – tanks which capture rainfall and are used to supply residential areas in hilly or mountainous regions (similar to what the Trinity mountains have).

      • Flavor said, on January 22, 2014 at 5:25 pm

        all time water reclamation knowledge. Nice.

  26. Flavor said, on January 22, 2014 at 5:27 pm

    back in the 70’s, and I can barely recall this, we had a pond in our back yard. Pretty big one. Anyway, during that drought CHuck is speaking of, my dad (southern boy) had the bright idea of using the pond water to flush the toilet. So, each time we’d use the toilet we didn’t flush it with the handle we just dumped a bucket of the pond water in there. It worked great, as I recall. My sister and I had fun doing it. lqtm

      Farmers in CA use 80% of the water used in the state. Residential cutbacks are window dressing. I already replaced 3 years ago my 3 commodes with low flow types, we hardly water our yards now. I’m thinking of leaving my water run for a day to up my average so we don’t get creamed having to mandatorily cut back 20% on our already low usage. Across the board percentage cuts is asinine for many who already conserve as a matter of course…

      On Sherman, Carroll and role models. All I can say is this: some people just take. For whatever reason. All of us have dysfunction(s) but some people never realize theirs’. I’ve always believed that everyone that isn’t a sociopath or psychopath has that innate sense of right and wrong. Guys like Sherman and Carroll, hell guys like TO and the OG of “I’m not a role model,” Sir Charles, seem oblivious or unwilling to wear that mantle-Role Model. My very best friend since 1974 is from Hunter’s Point. His opinion, as a black man, is that too many (white) people expect blacks to “be” someone or something that may not jibe with where “they” are from. His older brother was tight with Sly Stone until about 1975, when Sly went off the rails into coke and heroin. He won’t even talk to the guy anymore. Point being, Carroll has no “excuse” for his shit-except running up scores. I get that. Make your guys feel invincible. That’s a billion dollar business and product sells. I’m not excusing or condoning the behaviors of either and agree, kids see that shit and are influenced by it. But, like so many other areas of American society, no one wants to “own their shit and be accountable for it.”

I guess it doesn’t make a difference to the fat cats, that can afford the airline and hotel change fees. In fact, the airline industry could make some serious cash in doing so.

    I agree about Sherman. He says that he was caught up in the moment…but if your first reaction after victory is to run down the other team then you are pretty much an insecure jerk. Baseball and football may engender different mindsets and maybe the comparision is not apt but at the exact same moment of the season winning to take you the ultimate game (In this case, NLCS Game 7) Buster Posey was all dignity and class when talking to Ken Rosenthal. Athletes ARE role models no matter how much some try to say they are not.

    Richard Sherman at 9 years old.

      That’s fucking hilarious…

    Baggarly gives a non-answer answer to the question of — what happened to Gaudin? Geesuz, we Flappers could have given this “report” six weeks ago, with a lot more pizzaz. If the Giants were in NYC, by now the scribes would have written a three part story on the woman on the gurney…

    Sherman should just admit he’s an asshole. Everyone would then agree with him and this story would blow-over.

    Vid is out that shows Sherman was first interviewed for about 20 seconds by some radio or ESPN deportes guy as game time ran out, he made the same rant, essentially. Then he gave the same “me me me” rant to Erin Andrews. So the rant that went out via Andrews wasn’t some immediate outburst, he had just ranted the same thing, only the second time that went out on the network, he was more practiced…

      There’s also a video out now (cant link from phone) showing Sherman telling Crabs great game and extending his hand and crab in essence telling him to fuck off. Guess that’s what set him off. Heat of the moment. After an intense game like that, outburst doesn’t surprise me.

      • snarkk said, on January 23, 2014 at 2:11 pm

        On the vid after Sherman made the play, he’s celebrating with all his defensive buds in the EZ, then suddenly a light bulb goes off, and Sherman SPRINTS over to Crabby walking off the field, and offers him his bogus handshake. It’s an obvious, premeditated “in your face” attempt…

    • chipower9 said, on January 23, 2014 at 12:57 pm

      Yep…I heard that this morning on KNBR. So it wasn’t even spur of the moment…it was all fabricated (and practiced before it hit the airwaves). So not only is he a fucking loudmouth dickwad, but he’s a poser on top of it all. What a total POS. Learn some humility, asshole.

    So the consensus seems to be that Sherman is a chump. In other news, Yahoo is keeping up the negative take on the Giants.

      It’ll either be a wonderful bounce-back season for the Giants this year, or some more of the same from last year: a distressing general decline that signals the need for big changes.

    • chipower9 said, on January 23, 2014 at 1:03 pm

      Well, I see this guy as “keeping up the negative take” because I think he nailed it. Most everything has to go right for the Giants to succeed this year. And if not, as Zumie says, it will probably be more of the same shit from last year. Regardless, I am still ready to see some ball. Let’s go Giants!

      • dirtnrocksnomo said, on January 23, 2014 at 1:14 pm

        I agreed with some of his points. Especially about depth on the bench. I think Morse will be good. Dude will probably hit 7 in the LU to start out and if he hits some bombs work his way up to what? 6th? I hope not because that would mean poor performance from other players. Or good news that he forces the issue. I guess it depends on how you look at it.

        I am worried about Pagan and Scutaro staying healthy. Especially Scutaro.

        Pitching is always a concern but I think they’ll be ready with someone like Petit to step in or maybe even a young arm.

        It’s January 23rd. I’m feeling positive.

      • blade3colorado said, on January 23, 2014 at 5:32 pm

        Agree Chi. We have no margin for error like the Bums do. It will take a yeoman effort to just pass the Snakes.

  41. Bozo said, on January 23, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    I don’t really care about Sherman much, but I was thinking maybe he was just roided up. Crab was probably lucky he didn’t get the Romanowski spitski facial that Stokes got. Richard “Do You Mind If We Call You DICK” Sherman gets to play another game and our guys have gone home. Thanks for a fun year 9ers, go Giants.

  42. blade3colorado said, on January 23, 2014 at 5:24 pm

    The article Dirt cited (thanks Dirt) is spot on with regard to the Giants having little margin for error insofar as certain players needing to either step up and/or have an injury free year. However, the article falls short significantly in a number of areas, e.g., no mention of Belt, Crawford, Cain, Hudson, and the bull pen. In my opinion, improvement has to occur for all or most of these players, if we are to contend against the Bums and the Snakes. By the by, most projections/predictions have us in 3rd, not 2nd . . . and no one has us in 1st.

    I am hoping we can disappoint these so-called experts. 🙂

    • snarkk said, on January 23, 2014 at 9:26 pm

      Before ST starts, I’ve tentatively got the Giants in third behind LA and AZ…

      • blade3colorado said, on January 23, 2014 at 9:33 pm

        Yep. In my mind too, the Giants are in 3rd place at this point.
