Classless Seahawks Fans Throw Popcorn on NaVorro Bowman as He’s Carted Off the Field (GIF)
You can debate whether or not Richard Sherman‘s post-game antics following the Seahawks’ 23-17 victory over the 49ers in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game were classless or not.
What you can’t debate is whether or not throwing popcorn at 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman as he was being carted off the field with a torn ACL and MCL was classless or not. It was absolutely a classless act on the part of the Seahawks fans, plain and simple. Heck, even Sherman said that much in his weekly column on Sports Illustrated:
“One thing I can’t accept is what I read after the game about Seahawks fans throwing food at 49ers linebacker Navorro Bowman as he was being carted off the field with his knee injury. If it’s true, it’s beyond terrible. That’s as low as it gets. I’m sure whoever did this is in a small minority of fans, because I don’t think that kind of action is an accurate representation of the character of the 12th man. Navorro Bowman is a great player who plays the game the right way. When he went down, I dropped to a knee and prayed for him. He deserves better than having food thrown at him as he’s carted off a field. All players deserve better than that.”
Well said, Richard. Here’s a look at the incident in question:
