Seahawk Richard Sherman rips Roger Goodell, officiating, says NFL ‘isn’t fun anymore’

Last week, Richard Sherman dressed up as Harry Potter for his regular weekly press conference.

Thursday, Sherman was wearing NFL-issued camo clothing as part of the league’s “Salute to Service’’ celebration.


Sherman, though, spent most of his 15-minute press conference attacking the NFL, saying it’s to blame for declinting TV ratings for taking the fun out of things, ripping officiating and saying of commissioner Roget Goodell that “saying he hasn’t done a great job is beating a dead horse.’’

It was simply the latest in a long line of increasingly candid critiques at the NFL, which came on the heels of his post-game comments Sunday ripping the officiating in a 25-20 loss to the Saints when he said the league “makes sure they keep an impact and control’’ of the games.


Sherman, though, said he has not heard from the league for his Sunday comments. “Nothing in terms of fines or anything,’’ he said in answer to the first question that came his way Thursday.

And from there, he let it rip.

Here’s a sampling:

— On why he thinks he’s never been fined for what he’s said about the league: “Sometimes the truth is the truth is the truth. It is what it is. This is basically reality TV, so I guess I’m good for ratings, probably.’’

— On being told by a ref during Sunday’s game that they are doing the best they can: “That was his answer (doing the best we can) and I responded by saying ‘we’re doing the best we can, too, but you guys are kind of not giving us a chance.’ But it’s funny when it’s obvious like it was on Sunday. It’s real funny to us, we have a good time with it. The fans can finally see it. Sometimes it’s incidental, it’s sall, it’s deceptive, most people can’t catch it. But this game it was so obvious, one of the worst-penalized teams in the league doesn’t get a penalty other than a obvious false start that they didn’t want to call.’’

— On if it’s the commissioner’s office talking to refs that leads to more penalties on Seahawks: “I have no idea. They are real connected to the New York office nowadays, aren’t they? So I’m sure that’s fun. But it is what it is. We just go out there and play. They are going to come back and they are going to apologize the next day — we probably lead the league in NFL apologies.’’

Many of the rules he's complaining about were instituted before he started playing...

I really love it. The team that historically got away with the most uncalled PI's is complaining about no-calls.

Add that to the fact that the Saint would probably have a couple of more games in the win column...but for bad calls on our secondary.

Give me a break.

For those who want to read all of Sherman's comments, here is a bit of background music.

I'm sure it's fun when he looks at his bank account.
