Seattle’s Richard Sherman Explains Wild NFC Championship Postgame Comments [Video]

Unfortunately, the most memorable part of Sunday’s NFC Championship football game between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers may not have even happened during the game.

Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman’s wild post-game interview after the host Seahawks’ 23-17 win has drawn much of the attention.

Football is an intense sport. It’s not unreasonable to think that intensity might pour over into post-game interviews which happen on the field immediately after a game.

That’s exactly what happened on Sunday during Fox-TV reporter Erin Andrews’ interview of Sherman.

Sherman explained what happened in a column he wrote for Sports Illustrated.

Here’s an excerpt from that column:

Andrews interviewed me after the game and I yelled what was obvious: If you put a sub-par player across from a great one, most of the time you’re going to get one result.

A lot of what I said to Andrews was adrenaline talking, and some of that was Crabtree. I just don’t like him.

It was loud, it was in the moment, and it was just a small part of the person I am.”

If you were expecting an apology, you’ll have to keep looking.
