Richard Sherman RIPS Robert Kraft and Roger Goodell (Video)
Earlier today, I said that people would care about DeflateGate until Richard Sherman says something to shift people’s focus. Well, I was half right. Richard Sherman threw shade at Robert Kraft and Roger Goodell for maintaining a social/professional relationship that he believes will keep the Pats from getting punished. So while people will still talk about those stupid underinflated balls, Richard Sherman DID open his big mouth by saying soemthing controversial.
Richard Sherman threw shade at the NFL and Patriot honchos when asked if he thought the Pats would get in trouble for DeflateGate. He responded, “Probably not. Not as long as Robert Kraft and Roger Goodell are taking pictures at their respective homes. I think he was just at Kraft’s house last week for the AFC Championship.”
Goodell was at Robert Kraft’s house last week, though it wasn’t exactly a secret.

I’m not sure that the relationship between the two is really all that different that the commish’s relationship with other owners, and even if it is, I’m not sure that it would really effect the outcome of DeflateGate. But, Sherman’s straight talk won’t let a little thing like the truth get in the way of rattlin’ some cages.
Sherman got off to a slow start, but he’s now got six days or so to catch up and turn into the one-man show that the media just loves.
