Richard Sherman Destroys NFL with Help of Doug Baldwin Cardboard Cut Out
- Updated: November 25, 2014
Richard Sherman is a very talented football player. He is also quite an intelligent individual. Did we mention he’s outspoken too? Sometimes these dynamic forces come together in very compelling ways. Today’s “press conference” was another sterling example.
Sherman shines as he and a cardboard cut out of Seahawks teammate Doug Baldwin take the stage in front of beat media in Seattle. The real Doug Baldwin is there too…playing the part of ventriloquist. Confused yet? Just watch the clip. In just over two minutes, Sherman blasts the NFL and its “hypocrisy,” taking on its policies regarding media interaction (see: Marshawn Lynch), player safety, sponsorship protocols and a range of other issues. It’s truth, no matter how you slice it. The league will not like it. How they punish will be immensely interesting to watch.
Regardless of the repercussions, well played, Mr. Sherman. Well. Played.
