This past off-season, 31 NFL players were arrested for everything from gun charges and driving under the Influence to murder.
Last year, Kansas City Chiefs player Javon Belcher killed Kasandra Perkins, his girlfriend and the mother of his own child, before taking his own life.
Yet Richard Sherman at the age of 25 coming from the very bad neighborhood has never been arrested, finished 2nd in his high school, graduated from Stanford, had a remarkable family upbringing, and in just 20 seconds of yelling at a camera, is now labeled a thug and a villain. When he came to Seattle I read SO much about him. What we saw in that 20 seconds is not him. I must say that after reading about his background, reading his articles he writes each Monday I really admire this man! I love the way his parents raised him, and I LOVE LOVE the way he inspired and got 8 other high school players on his team off to college ... and more. This man is ON FIRE for Life!
If people here will judge him and call him a thug because of 20 seconds of yelling at a camera, then I feel sorry for them.
