NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell likes Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. And Goodell would like Sherman to think about the way he presents himself on TV.
Asked on CBS This Morning to react to Sherman’s interview after the NFC Championship Game, Goodell said he wasn’t pleased with it.
“It’s an emotional game, and you see a young man who comes off the field and he’s pumped up, and there’s so much excitement in the stadium, but no, I’m not cheering for that because he’s a great young man, he’s extremely well spoken, does great things off the field, obviously a great player on the field. I want him to present himself in the best possible way, and make sure that he’s reflecting on himself and his family in a positive way. He took away a little bit from the team. That was what he said yesterday. I thought that was a very interesting comment and I think it’s fair,” Goodell said.
Whether Goodell likes the way Sherman conducted himself or not, Sherman has been the center of attention in the media since the moment 50 million Americans watched his post-game interview. And we’re less than a week away from Sherman being the center of attention at Super Bowl Media Day.
