I was reading through some of the comments last night from the article about Sherm winning the Madden cover. One of the comments briefly touched on a Niners Nation Article about the same subject. So this morning out of curiousity i read the article myself. If you have not read it basically it states that one should photo shop the cover because of who is on it. The resecptful fan in me said, "really?" The disrespectful fan said "Wow what a bunch of pampered whiney bitches, really how many titles, hall of fame players, and other glorious deeds does that bitch ass franchise have?"
However i try to be respectful, had my thought and continued to read the comments starting with a copy and paste of a twitter feed hoping for Sherms death because he is a "dick." Now i will say some of, including the poster of the comment spoke out against this but there was still a large group feeding into it. This again was as laughable as previous. Lets look at why.
Is Sherman a "dick" as stated by so many at niner nation? If you judge a book by its cover, sure. If you undertsand the genius that is the Stanford Graduate you would see it is ALL on purpose. Think about it, football players have a very short half life, and Richard Sherman is now a household name. Agree or disagree with how he made that happen but none the less he did. He now has something very few retiring players have, a name to be used after football.
Second, Niner fans shunning an out spoken, brash, shit talking, shut down corner is the most laughable. Do those idiots not remember a guy named Deon Sanders? They sure loved the shit out of him, and i would bet that had San Fran used say a 4th round pick on Sherman and drafted him before us they would love the shit out of Sherman also. There were a few other past outspoken 49er players that came to mind but Primetime stood out the most in my mind.
Anyways, my point is that i dont seem to remember anyone getting upset or calling for the death of any of the past or present 49er players nor being so childish and petty as to call for a mass photo shop by your fan base against a rival team, it is just so......ill say it again, childish and petty. I will say i hate Kaepernick with all my heart, i dont know why i just do. But having said that i still would always wish him the best, least as much as my hateful heart will allow. Stupid Kaepernicking.....Sorry trailed off there, so i just felt the need to post my first ever Field gulls post in response. Would love to hear our fan bases thoughts on this behavior.
