Seattle Seahawks v New York Jets

Last week, Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman revealed that he yelled at coaches for throwing on the goal line during the game against the Los Angeles Rams.  That prompted him to go on a tirade towards a reporter who asked if he had a ‘better handle’ of what should have been called.

Fast forward to Wednesday and Sherman is still going off on reporters, threatening to opt out of his weekly press conferences since he isn’t appreciated.

“I’m just going to make sure that people, you know, it’s a privilege to have me up there. So, (you’re) gonna miss me when I’m gone.”
