    So I see the fine for Sherman is out, but apparently nothing on the Lane hit?

  2. Southendzone says:

    Thursday, that Lane hit will take a while to sort out. Remember the Tomlin thing this year? They didn’t resolve that very quickly at all, not announced with the Friday player fines by any means.

    You can imagine based on prior history, if they had evidence that it was as intentional as a lot of us think it was, that guy is looking at maybe a year long suspension and significant fine.

  3. i know i’m biased, but now that i’ve seen the clip where Sherman says, “helluva game” to Crabtree and puts out his hand – and not at all in a dickish way — I’m even more annoyed about this whole episode. Obviously, Sherman was po’d by Crabtree’s reaction at that moment in time, and rightfuly so. I’d sort of assumed that sherman’s pat on the butt, and handshake was done in a mocking sort of way – but that wasn’t the case at all.

    I know, I know, time to let this story die . . .

    Thanks, Southendzone. I didn’t really pay attention to how long it took them to decide on Tomlin hahah. I don’t see how they fine Sherman for taunting and whatnot without also fining Crabtree for the uncalled facemask shove.

    I assume Sherm’s was for the choke sign, I hope, because otherwise that’s some crap.

    Fine wasn’t for the rant…it was for the choke gesture. I’m ok with that.

  6. Southendzone says:

    I wonder if Crabtree is going to use his 2 Superbowl tickets. Anyone got his contact information? Would he give them to me?

  7. seaturkeys says:

    For about the same price as the billboard in Fife, Sherman became the most famous person on earth.

  8. raymaines says:

    seaturkeys gets a five star post rating from me!! That was the most insightful post I’ve read in months.

    Contrast: Marshawn Lynch avoids the press and gets a $50,000 fine. Richard Sherman gets head slapped and is fined because he, rather than Michael Crabtree is interviewed immediately after the game and says something unsportsmanlike. I love professional football but just hate the NFL.

    What if there were a jury of eight people and one judge drawn at random from a pool of 2 fans from each of the 32 NFL cities that would have a binding vote on this sort of thing? The jurists wouldn’t be corporate lackeys and would probably be much more balanced and fair than Roger Goodell.
