Richard Sherman fined $12,154 for unsportsmanlike conduct

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was flagged for penalties four times in last Sunday’s loss to the Titans and one of them led to a fine from the league.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that Sherman has been fined $12,154 for his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Sherman received the penalty when he took off his helmet to argue with officials after being flagged for both defensive holding and pass interference on the same first quarter play.

Safety Kam Chancellor‘s interception was negated as a result of the penalties and the Titans went on to drive for a field goal.

Sherman was penalized later in the game for a late hit on Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota. The hit sparked a brief scuffle and resulted in personal fouls on both sides, which meant the play was thrown out. Titans coach Mike Mularkey took issue with that this week, saying that he’d like to see a rule change that left the penalty against Sherman in place while the other calls offset.

  1. He should have been fined for the helmetto helmet out of bounds hit on Mariota. And don’t come back with he wasn’t out of bounds or didn’t hit Marcus in the face mask. Watched the replay about 20 times, he is guilty of both.

    I bet you weren’t “sick of that guy” when he intercepted that game ending pass from Kapernick to Crabtree just a few years ago that resulted in an annihilation of the greatest offense the NFL has ever seen.

    Some fan!

    Uh…. Sherman did not intercept that pass, Smith did……. some fan indeed.

  5. And yet most of you downthumbed me earlier when I pointed out these and other team behavior failings and said the team ought to be the first to go on this new “leadership” education program. Or is Richard Sherman the lecturer on this course?

  6. They need some type of system where if you accumulate so many unsportsmanlike conduct penalties you have to sit for a game. That’s how this will end it or curb it. A 12 grand fine is a joke.

    Obviously you weren’t in attendance for the game winning Sherman interception in the 2012 NFC Championship game that was followed by the 43-8 win over the Broncos.

    What other game ending interception could I have been referring to that led to the annihilation of the greatest offensive explosion ever seen. Some fan you are if you don’t know that in 2012 Denver had the greatest passing attack ever seen in any year of the NFL.

    Everyone remembers Fox announcer Erin sticking a mic in Sherman’s face seconds after Sherman singlehandedly ended the 49er’s season at Century Link…okay, everyone but this hater.

    Ha, you really do believe that Sherman intercepted that pass don’t you….. I thought you just got carried away at first…. but you actually do not remember the play and how it went down…. fascinating.

  9. As a Seahawks fan, I’m disappointed in this fine. It should have been WAY more. Used to stick up for the guy, but I can’t defend his childish antics and idiocy anymore. Get rid of him and Bennett. All they are are distractions holding this team back.

  10. Agree with fine. Also; agree with Coach Murlarky that the initial penalty should have stood on its own, and not have been off set when he hit QB out of bounds. If a penalty is given to protect a player, subsequent penalties by both teams in knee jerk, retaliatory responses should be administrated separately. If they off set each other, than the initial penalty flag stands. If retaliatory by only the other team, then it off sets the initial flag.

    I’m not sure why the penalties, if separate instances and players, they aren’t all administered? “Off setting” means just that and if there are multiple fouls, so be it. In this specific case there really should have been the late hit penalty. The other two “off set”.
