Seattle Seahawks All Pro cornerback Richard Sherman has caught some flak recently for going back and forth with Darrelle Revis, and just super cocky at times. Sherman can at least be looked at as a hero for the next couple of day.  Sherman was on ESPN’s First Take to discuss football, Revis,and his charity work with high school kids. Sherman and the programs controversial host Skip Bayless got into a little, and Sherman took exception to Bayless saying that he wasn’t in Darrelle Revis league. Of course Bayless being  the crafty media veteran he is, put the bait out there for Sherman, and Richard gladly took it.  Things at that point got heated between the two, and Sherman who isn’t bashful fired several shots at Bayless, and according to Evan Silva, ended his barrage by calling Bayless “Ignorant, Pompous, and Egotistical.” Bayless who doesn’t have the thickest of skin, looked like he wanted to cry, but he got his ratings.

  • Up until now I haven't been much of a fan of Richard Sherman. He is definitely a great talent in the game and he is out to prove something. I also get that trash talking is sometimes a part of the game but I have always felt he takes it to extremes and seems to look for controversy. But after the things he said about skip clueless, I have to give him props. I have always felt bayless is a complete jackasss and have always detested him. Don't you just wanna smack him in his smug arrogant face when he makes those ridiculous faces while getting roasted by Steven A. Smith. At one point on First Take Sherman was answering a question from co-host Stephen A. Smith when he went after Bayless, who had expressed the opinion that Sherman was not in the same class as Darrelle Revis as a top cornerback. At one point, Sherman used the words ignorant, pompous and egotistical to describe Bayless. He promised to "crush" Bayless "in front of everybody" because he's tired of the "ignorant pollution" Bayless puts forth on the show.
    I gotta love that because I have been waiting for someone to jackslap bayless for a long time and while Steven A makes him look foolish he won't cross the line and tell bayless what a moron he really is. Kudos to you Sherman for finally saying what needs to be said about this extremely untalented sports talking head.
  • Sherman is a jerk! Period! That's Skip Bayless job and if you watch it its because he is good. By the way isn't Sherman accused of steroids along with two or three other DB's in Seattle. Oh apparently Skip is correct, Sherman the "bum" couldn't hold Revis jock strap. #Shermanstestedwillbeabust
  • Skip Clueless is a spineless twit and a freaking phony. Or maybe he's fooling everyone by spewing the STUPID SHIIT HE SAYS!!! Maybe it's just good for ratings because people like contoversy. I mean if a show like COPS can stay on the air or Jerry Springer was successful then people will watch anything for the sake of controversy. But Skip still sucks and that has nothing to do with Sherman's short comings.
