Kedric Golston says Richard Sherman is a “cheater”


As if there weren’t enough story lines to sustain Sunday’s game between the Seahawks and the Redskins, a new angle has been added on Friday, courtesy of Washington defensive lineman Kedric Golston.

As linebacker Lorenzo Alexander was being asked whether Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman should be on the field on Sunday given the positive drug test that was overturned on appeal, Golston interrupted.

He’s a cheater,” Golston said of Sherman, via Jim Corbett of USA Today.

Cornerback DeAngelo Hall opted, uncharacteristically, to take the high road.  “I’m happy he won it,” Hall said of Sherman’s appeal.  “I don’t know all the details of it. If he won his appeal, he won his appeal.  We obviously would have been better off it he wasn’t playing, but he’s out there.  We have to deal with who’s out there.  There’s nothing we can do about it.”

Other than, you know, call Sherman a “cheater.”

  1. Florio must be trying to get readers goin’…..he posts 2 articles in a row about seahawk cheaters, Sherman and Tate, LOL

  2. What people fail to realize is that for the last few weeks Sherman has no question been playing without anything in his system. He is undoubtedly one of the best corners in the NFL, deal with it.

  3. Cool give the hawks reason to get peaved. smart move goofy! This an interesting game because of the fact both teams have come out of knowhere and arent just in the playoffs but are expected to do some damage. perhaps this is nextt years NFC championship game. like peyton vs brady this could be a look into the very near future. as a hawks fan i cant help but love RG3 , a talent in everyway and all class. Of course i feel that and more for RW3. CHEERS SKINS FANS, GO HAWKS!!!

  4. Maybe Golston should let his play do his talking. Except with no starts and just 16 tackles – in a entire season! – he wouldn’t be able to say a word.

  5. Then Kedric stuck his tongue out at Sherman and said “Nah nah…and your mother wears army boots.”

    Grow up, pal…you’re in the NFL.

  6. Who?

    The guy who got caught for selling his SEC ring? Or the guy who got arrested for battery of a police officer?

    That doesn’t make him a cheater at football; in the grand scheme of things, it’s worse.

    Cheaters never win. Redskins 31-13.


    So the redskins have been cheating the last 15 years?

  8. Sherman doesn’t need any PED’s and he doesn’t need any trash talking jerk to fire him up. He will make his statement on the field on Sunday.

  9. Kedric Golston? Never heard of him. Maybe he should get in the conversation for the most dominant player in his position before he starts calling out ballers like Sherman. Got anything to say about Peyton? Calvin?

  10. I am a Skins fan, and I know hate when I see it. Sherman won the appeal fair and square…even if he didn’t play fair and square. If he was not playing at a Pro Bowl level, would anybody care? To wit: Does anyone outside of DC care who Cedric Griffin is?

  11. Already making excuses huh? Who is he again? Richard Sherman was a no name too. Now he’s Mr popular. Maybe this unknown redskin could learn a thing or two from Sherman.

  12. I applaud Golston for speaking his mind. Makes me wanna go buy his jersey right now! And to think, Sherman really thinks people believe him. For shame Richard for shame!

  13. Truth be told, there is nothing more embarrassing than then watching the Seahawks CBs deliberately rape the concept of “bump and run” coverage, while somehow paralyzing refs into thinking their “coverage” is clean.

    Meth dealers are less credible selling rock to addicts. Seattle’s D is a joke, and its an embarrassment to the sport in any game coached by Pete Carrol. Win or lose, he’s shown a tendency to shed the blame and embrace the upside.

  14. “Poking Richard Sherman has proven to be an ineffective strategy. But hey, it’s got to work one of these days, right?”

    Is this the same Richard Sherman who’s defense got torched by Rex Friggin Grossman last year? In Seattle?

    And as to the Cedric Griffin comment, he served his suspension. He didn’t get off on a technicality.

    Man, I can’t believe the the fans of a team with ZERO RINGS EVER talk SO MUCH JUNK.

    Poking Richard Sherman has proven to be an ineffective strategy. But hey, it’s got to work one of these days, right?

    Seems to have been pretty effective so far which is why he had to win the case based on a broken seal or some stupid chain of custody technicality.

  16. of course you fail to mention sherman has been talking trash about washingtons receivers all week.

    let the skins be the underdog. I laugh at any seachicken fan who thinks they’ll come onto our fiele (which is real grass by the way not fancy turf) and run the game.

    good luck

    That’s how you know the Skins are shook.

    I think we missed something. You have some cryptic message finder?

  18. DeAngelo Hall : “We obviously would have been better off it he wasn’t playing, but he’s out there.”

    RG3 Will find out the hard way…….mark it.


    GO Legion of BOOM!

  19. Good move to man-up and call this guy out, right or wrong. Sends a strong I aint scared message to teammates. Redskins 31-13.

  20. Puhleeeze..the guy is a cheater…because his cup was cracked and the lab technician put his sample inside of a larger container and sealed he gets off ? Totally ridiculous! Only because of the whole Saints mess occurring at that same time this guy gets off… But he will get caught again..just watch…

  21. Class act Golston. Are you a 6 year old? I know you are richer than me, but you have much less class.

  22. Yeah, guilty until proven innocent…that’s the American way! LOL…ignornant comment from an ignorant person. I’ll bet he’d be singing a different tune if Sherman was playinh behind him.

  23. 31-13? Wow, skins fans are truly delusional now. The skins beat a bunch of struggling teams and you say 31-13 against the red hot Seahawks? Hahahahahaha. Has your team been that irrelevant for so long that you honestly forgot how the game of football works?

  24. Haha! That’s the Seahawks for ya… Remember that GreenBay game! Sherman didn’t use Aderall like Golden Tate “didn’t” push off! Not to mention they didn’t start having success until Pete Carol took his notes from watching Shannahan. But like they say “there are innovators and then there are imitators” though the Sea Hawks have been playing good football it’s looking like that’s on the back of another teams loss and another coaches talent. So if the game this Sunday comes down to character then I’ll be hearing Hail to the Redskins all the way to next week! HTTR!!!

  25. Golston says Richard Sherman is a “cheater”….ha,ha,ok Mr. I might not even play let alone start, since I’ve been out for a month for using drugs and got caught….

  26. Bottom Line: Sherman is a physical press corner who can body up any receiver on the Redskins, then jam and reroute them. He’s already one of the top CBs in the league—and he’s a tough matchup for the ‘Skins!

  27. Says the guy with 184 combined tackles over the course of a 7 year career in the NFL. You would expect a rookie to flap his gums before a playoff game, not a vet and surely not a vet with a career as laughable as this guy. It’s not wise to give your opponents more fuel for the fire.

  28. Sherman: “Yeah, so you caught me in the act red-handed, but I’m not guilty by reason that no one read me my Miranda rights.”

  29. Hawks are just too hot, too healthy and too pissed off at the world to let the skins impose any will upon them. Seattle is extremely focused and eager to smack someone in the mouth Sea 29, Wash 19

  30. If he pays attention on Sunday, he will see how a top 5 defense plays…
    Maybe he’ll learn something, and his unit won’t be ranked 28th next year…
    Go Hawks!

  31. Could u exspect any thing different from a carol coached team. Cheat cheat cheater. Went from college to the nfl. Cheaters can’t win period.

  32. Does he think his teammate Cedric Griffin is also a cheater? Cuz he’ll be on the field, too.

    He’s already served his suspension, therefore he’s allowed back on the field smart guy.

  33. The first contest in a big game is to see which team can keep its big yap shut and not say anything stupid in advance that would further motivate the other team.

    Advantage Seahawks.

  34. Yo Golston
    Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !
    We aren’t talking bout HGH, roids or Head and Shoulders. Grow some stones.You gonna lose them when Lynch runs ya ass over.

  35. lohhhh thank you thank you!!! i have been so worried with all these exerts picking the seahawks to win (being that they are BY FAR the better team) that they could come out slow. but thanks to the punk deangelo hall swearing in front of little girls and this idiot i have no doubt this EXTREMELY DANGEROUS team will have the neccesary chip on their shoulders they need to whip up on the skins in front of there unjustly over confident fans!!

    GO HAWKS!!!!

  36. I just don’t understand why they didn’t re-test him? If it was only a technicality that he got off on (leaky cup) then why not test again to see if that’s all it was?

  37. Ugh. Quit giving this guy motivation. The last thing I want is to play the Seahawks in the Super Bowl (if my team makes it). They remind me too much of the Giants.

  38. The Seahawks have been talking trash all week so they must be pretty nervous too. As for Kendric you should have said what DeAngelo Hall said instead of saying that.

  39. Aren’t the skins just activating a PED banner and have an O-lineman just get suspended. When Hall is your classy player in the news. That says something. Go Hawks!

  40. He’s not wrong. Doesn’t matter if he got off on a technicality and escaped punishment, he’s still a cheater. I like Sherman, but he’s only playing this weekend was that their was a procedural mistake in how his urine was handled. None of those procedures compromised the legitimacy of his specimen. The urine was dirty. He only got off because of the zero tolerance collection policies. Cheater.

  41. Cheaters have crumbled vs the Redskins. See J.Mara and A.Peterson. Decietful teams and players are frowned upon by God and will be ineffective vs his team. Look for Pierre Garçon to have 200 yards and 2 TDs.

  42. The Seahawks haven’t shut their mouths all week, they have went as far as downing the Redskins wrs, and defense….everyone knows Seattle did not become relavent until they stoled the Redskins offensive skeem… Since when have the Seahawks been good? They are only televised in Seattle!

  43. The overturn of Sherman’s test result was a positive for the NFL. There seems to have been a clear mishandling of the urine sample by the test agency. That, in itself, should negate the result of the test. Unfortunately, it does not prove that Sherman was not using adderall.

    The NFL needs to improve its testing policies and it more importantly needs to improve the confidentiality of the testing procedures. This entire mess has been exacerbated by the NFL’s inability to put a lid on the information leaked by its own employees.

  44. Lol. The Redskins are doing plenty of talking. But on Sunday, they got a butt kicking coming to them in front of their fans and there is nothing they can do about it. Sherman was innocent and it was proven. Now I want to see that defense bend RG3 up.

  45. Even more uncharacteristically, Hall could have said that it’s better that they were going up against one of the best corners in the league, and despite initial allegations, settling which is the best team is best done on the field with the best players.

    Still, I have a smidgen more respect for him for saying what he did.

    Kedric, you listening?

  46. Walter Payton, Emmitt Smith… Where are you now? Wish the prima-donnas of the NFL or the wannabe ones would just conduct themselves with class and play the game.

    Talk only if it improves the silence.

  47. Cheater would mean he had some unfair advantage on the field of play. Just cause you challenge the great Godspy doesnt mean you cheated. Its means you stand up for yourself.

  48. All I get outta this is that Seahawk fans should expect some suspensions in the future.

    Guys like Sherman have been spoiled for many years now.
    He will screw-up beyond appeal at some point.

    He is replaceable.

  49. Hawks 28
    Skins 24

    I can here the post game comment by Sherman to him already……’You mad Bro? ‘

    Go Hawks!

  50. Skins shook? Of what? Seattle isn’t even the best team they have faced. Only thing the 12th man is good for is bukakke. Prepare to get worked Seattle.

  51. With all due respect to a very good Redskins team and their fans :

    It doesn’t really matter if you think he’s a cheater or not – you still have to play against him and the rest of the #1 ranked defense in the NFL come Sunday .

    Good luck with that …

  52. As a Skins fan I wish Kedric kept his mouth shut. Leave talk like that to the Seahawks who have been running their mouths all week. But whats done is done. Should be a good game.

    And for those saying “Golston who?”, well Kedric Golston is one of those depth/special teams players that all good teams need. You can point to his stats and laugh, but the guy gives his all every game and when called on usually delivers.

    In short, those making fun of him on here based on his stats aren’t worthy to carry his jock.

  53. NFL Team Opponent Points per Game

    Date: 1/5

    Rank Team 2012
    1 Seattle 15.3
    2 San Francisco 17.1
    3 Chicago 17.3
    4 Denver 18.1
    5 Atlanta 18.7
    6 Pittsburgh 19.6
    7 Miami 19.8
    8 Cincinnati 20.0
    9 New England 20.7
    10 Houston 20.7

  54. The problem with reading quotes like this, is you cannot discern the tone in which it was said. Most of us are assuming he said it like a complainer or a whiner, what if he said it laughing like a wise-ass? Maybe he even knows Sherman… He could be simply stirring up trouble for fun with confidence, not complaining like his team is in a bad spot because of something unfair… You’re assuming his tone of voice…. And whats more, the question being posed to Alexander sounds like a reporter baiting him into just such a response just to cause this whole story

  55. Both teams and their fan are talking WAY TOO MUCH. What every happened to “letting your play speak for you?”

    Winning franchise don’t shoot off like this… time to grow up and try to act like one.

  56. I can not wait til Sunday ends and we can send these annoying SEAGIRL fans to a bitter off season. Even their trash talk is corny. Redskins 38 Seagirls 17. HTTRR!!!!!

  57. CHEATER?…….DUH!………….But he’s a good one and it was a catch…..GO HAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  58. how can you talk about your defense when ypu cant stop reggie bush and the rookie tannehill?

    also, sherm is a cheater. he cheated and got caught and cheated his way out of his punishment. he is the definition of a cheater. and he doesnt hold himself accountable for his own actions. thats really kindergarten.

    and seattle literally copied shanahans offense. before that wilson was average at best.

  59. How does this make him a trash talker or jerk? Was asked a question about Sherman’s drug test and he answered with what he thought, and he is correct he was a cheater, and got off by a technicality. Jordan Black was suspended for PEDs and I would say the same about him, he cheated. People need to realize that players don’t just blurt stuff like this out, they’re in interviews. Seahawks fans don’t get your panties in a bunch, your not the great team you think they are, infact Redskins led more stats then the Hawks, better run defense, turnover differential, passing offense, running offense, only thing the Seahawks have better is secondary and pts per game. So I really don’t see why Seahawk fans think they are unbeatable, I mean the Redskins are the ones on a 7 game win streak.

  60. Without a proper urin sample there is no way to prove he was using. So why call someone a cheater if you dont really know for sure. One thing is certain….nothing in his system come sunday so dont freakout man. BB was suspended so yeah, you can say he cheated. But as previous posters mentioned… just keep feeding the fire of an emotional, young, high energy team and see what happens.

  61. The real cheater was the pee tester, who tried to cover up his incompetence and failed process by not reporting his screw up. How many others have been found guilty by lying testers who maybe are fans of other teams.

  62. Top Scoring Offenses
    1 New England
    2 Denver
    3 New Orleans
    4 Washington
    5 Green Bay
    6 NY Giants
    7 Atlanta
    8 Houston
    9. Seattle
    10 Baltimore

    And that’s with Seattle’s inflated points at the end of the season. Personally, I’d rather the Skins face a really good defense rather than a good offense. Our offense can handle a good defense. Put 38 up against the Rams. Could’ve done well against the Steelers had we not had 10 drops.

  63. who the heck is this guy? oh yea he was the guy who wants to beat up police while he was at UGA like an idiot. Also he was one of the idiots who sold their 2002 SEC ring. Golston you are an embarrassment you were horrible while at UGA and still are horrible.

  64. I just can’t wait until Sunday. Redskin fans will go into hiding just like 49er fans after we played them after they trash talked all week. Skins haven’t played a defense like this and the run D has decent rating only because teams can pass on you for 300 plus yards with ease. Go Hawks

  65. It’s called damage control. Seattle is going to get really physical and knock some heads out there. Seattle 30-17

  66. funny i saw two nfl top ten lists posted on here and one of these teams is on BOTH!!!! And for all this nonsense on here about washington putting up 30 and 40 points all i can say is thank you!!! you obviously havent been paying attention.. i realize u think bob is superman but i assure you the seattle defense is made of KRYPTANITE!!!!! Grow up skins!!!! Seattle 31 skins 14!!

    GO HAWKS!!!

  67. Cheaters don’t try hard you idiot, people who try hard… try hard. That’s the point of cheating like Sherman, Browner, Kedric and hundreds and hundreds of other NFL players. Cheaters tend to try hard, crackhead.

  68. I thought Sherman was a cheater before this drug test even came out. The illegal contact rule is called judiciously throughout the NFL but seems to magically disappear whenever he or Browner play. Did Polian throw that temper tantrum for nothing?

  69. Passed over time and time again, the glove of a new dominion shall exact his inexorable influence upon a league of unbelievers and would-be usurpers. He will engulf all who attempt to despoil his territory. He will tear the hearts out of his foes. Heed his words. Heed his scorn. Heed Richard The Dread. Beware the Legion of BOOM and prepare yourselves for the RISE OF THE SEAHAWKS EMPIRE!!!

  70. @themackstrong

    49ers fans are not hiding. The Seahawks dominated our team but our fans still came on after to take it.

    That being said our fans know a Super Bowl win is not in Week16. Do yours? Ive seen way too many ‘new’ Seahawks fans and usernames magically pop up on this site in the last couple of weeks.

    Go Niners.

    Yeah, and the Chiefs would have made the playoffs if they had only won 10 games. But they didn’t.

    Maybe if Morris ran for more than 59 yards, and maybe if the Skins hadn’t let Dwyer run for 107, and maybe if Griffin didn’t have 6 rushes for 8 yards, and maybe if… you get the idea.

  72. Kedric who? Oh, you mean the back up TE with 8 solo tackles, 8 assists and nothing else through 16 games. Wow!

  73. Yes, Seahawk fans everyone knows that your team hasn’t allowed many points, BUT don’t act like high scoring offenses like the Skins haven’t put up points against that D, I mean you did let the Lions and Dolphins put up 21+ against this great defense. Come on guys, it’ll be a good game, but your D isn’t going to shut down the Redskins offense, as no team has this year, and they’ve faced great D’s. Your offense is slack though, great run game, but I don’t see Wilson getting it done (and I’ve been impressed by Wilson and a fan of his since he played at NCSU). Just hope Wilson doesn’t end up like the last 2 qbs we faced, HURT.

  74. I love all of these skins fans saying “the hawks have been talking trash all week” but not ONE of you has produced a quote. Go away and start working on your excuses for the Loss.

    Hawks 24
    Skins 16

  75. For all you Seahawks fans pointing out that Cedric Griffin was using the same stuff as Sherman, yes he did use adorall or some equivalent. Difference being is that Sherman used some sort of legalese technicality to get off. Cedric Griffin was suspended for 4 games. You don’t think that Sherman’s PEDs had something to do with the season he had this year? Griffin is a slot corner who plays a lot of third and passing downs. Not exactly benefitting the same way Sherman was by performing at an elite level. So griffin was cheating to barely stay on the field while Sherman was cheating to be considered elite. See the difference?

  76. There is a major difference between meth and adderall. Yes they do have some of the sme substances but adderall possesses very slight amounts of meth… otherwise they wouldnt prescribe it to children. The edge people are gaining from adderall is going to be a slight increase in awareness.

    The nfl is a big money business. People are going to look for competitive edges everwhere they can. Theres people even taking sexual arousal drug ffs. Dont act like this is limited to the seahawks. Then talk trash when it benefits you to feel good about your own team. I will guarantee you this, every single team has at least a few people who are taking substances to gain an edge. That is just a moderate accusation. Some teams probly have more players doing it.

    Dont wait until your team faces the hawks and then point a finger saying they are cheaters, because the skins, and every other nfl team has had the exact same thing go on.

  77. Mcary, for argument sake, lets day Sherman was on something. He was tested, told he was getting popped and presumably stopped taking anything (you get tested constantly after getting popped) why then, with all of those distractions while appealing, and no “help” from whatever he “took” why again did he actually play even better? Just give it up already…

  78. The adderall thing is just an excuse. It was probably HGH but you’re allowed to say it was what ever you want according the rules of the CBA. That’s why all these players are claiming Adderall. It’s a front. And Seabirdturd fans. Quit saying “Hail to the Seahawks” HTTR, is sacred to skins fans. Stick with your lame “Go Hawks.” Something a JV cheer squad would come up with.

    ‘Skins lost to the Rams, 31-28, on Sept. 16. Or were you referring to the game on 12/13/71 when the ‘Skins beat the L.A. Rams 38-24?

    Liar = Cheater

  80. Looking at the QB’s under pressure in the second half of the season is rather interesting. Looks like Wilson has the edge going into the game and more interceptions likely for Sherman.

  81. The Blowhard Hawks have done nothing but talk trash. It will be interesting to see what they actually do at FedEx field.

    Funny thing, the Skins beat them at Seattle WITH Rex Grossman.

    Pretty sure that scary defense was present.

  82. I loved your poem daddyspeed im a poet that was cool
    But i got to say i love both of these young qb and their rb
    They have really made football fun and exciting to watch this season. Good luck to both teams.

  83. mis-remembered. Hate looking things up.
    Haha. Sorry, you’re a cool poster. Wish that response was to a toolshed instead. This game has us all full of P & V!

  84. Reading through the comments, I can’t believe the lengths Seahawks fans have gone to protect their beloved player. He was caught. He was not innocent. Ryan Braun was innocent too right? The sample collectors wee out to get Sherman right? Come on. He is guilty. He got off because the cup was cracked. Doesn’t mean that he didn’t do it. This was a technicality. It wasn’t like he proved that he had his sample tampered with. IT WAS A CRACKED CUP!

    Yes cheating by all teams happens. But when it happens, are the rules applied appropriately. Yeah I guess so, but the skins have had players suspended and they served time. Not sure that Sherman should have benefitted from a technicality. His own defensive backfield teammate took the suspension for his own violation.

  85. I feel bad for Russell Wilson, I really like the guy! But he plays for a fan base with nooooo CLASS!!!! You’d think Sherman was the whole damn Team from reading this post. He can only cover one receiver. Last time I checked most NFL teams have at least 2..

  86. He is a cheater, his testing came back positive. He just got lucky to get off on a technicality, but look at this honestly. Do you really believe someone tainted his sample? Ummm, no, he cheated and got away with it this time. His big mouth will catch up with him.

  87. Just read through all the comments again after the game. So classic. So hilarious.

    Where are all the skin fans now? I’d make a joke about the draft, but they traded away the next 3 years.

    How do you know?

    Because he’s been tested several times since and is clean. The Skins still lost, and he still shut out Garcon, Hankerson and Morgan.

  91. Once they come up hot, they get tested on the regular. You can bet Sherm was the cleanest dude in football for the last 5-6+ weeks. In that time, all he did was shut dudes down, pick off qb’s, score almost as many td’s as the hawks opponents weeks 15-17, and make a bunch of haters along the way.

    Face it… he is the player that 31 teams and their fans hate, but if he played on their team, he’d be the face of their franchise and everyone would love him.
