Sherman and the Seahawks annoy me in general, but Sherman is a beast for using his 15 minutes of fame like this lol

Thanks for posting this.

I agree with Sherman here. The word has a denotative meaning that in no way applies to him.

Is this Hoopshypian for something?
One might use the term thug for AH, he's famously been in fights, failed drug tests, and been associated with other crimes, notably the one he's in jail for.
How is Sherman a thug?
The term is being used for some connotative meaning it has...it's code for something. Sherman's guess is as good as mine as to what it's code for. Good on him for calling it like he sees it.

Wow not surprisingly that went over your head .

Not only black people are called thugs so it's a retarded conclusion that Sherman came too. I don't think anyone should be calling Sherman a thug for calling a spade a spade but there really is no need for the dude to bring race into it.

My bad i only skimmed over it missed this part -

Quote
On Monday, the interview and the reaction it sparked remained a hot topic of conversation. As measured by iQ Media1, the word "thug" was uttered more times on U.S. television on Monday, 625, than it had been on any other day in three years, reported Deadspin.


Guess Sherman has a point.

A guy gets in no trouble off the court, goes to a school like Stanford where you need to have high academic average whether you are on an athletic scholarship or not, but he screams during a post game interview where a mic was shoved in his face during a super charged emotional moment and he is a thug.  Got it.

Most NFL players have to work themselves into a rage to play effectively and he just made the play that sent his team to the Super Bowl. So he was obviously full of emotion so it should have been a surprise that he responded to Erin Andrews' question like that. People should have saw that and be amused maybe laughed but, then move on. If you were angered by that you either take this stuff too seriously or you are showing some deep seated biases.

And Sherman made a great point about how "thug" is being used as a substitute for the n word. I am always annoyed when I here people saying the NBA is full of thugs. Since I know what they really mean when they say that.

You guess  Cheesy

You just didn't read/didn't consider the man's view and rushed to label him an idiot who is unfairly portraying himself and other black people as victims, then when you realize you were the idiot, "you guess" you can understand the point but you don't guess or realize that you do the same crap that is being called out, which is being prejudiced.

To add on to this, Sherman plays corner, and everybody who has been involved with football one way or another says that cornerbacks have to be the most confident players on the field, especially one like Sherman who his team basically tells to cover somebody and blanket said receiver all game.

As for the game, it'll be interesting to see how the Seahawks use him in coverage.  Will they stick him on Demaryius Thomas the whole game and if so, is Denver going to run a bunch of crossing patterns packaged screen plays?  As a football game, this is the best Super Bowl I can remember since Pats-Eagles.
