Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman Threatens To ‘Ruin’ Seattle Reporter’s Career

Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman told a local reporter that he would ruin his career after a press conference on Tuesday.

Sherman became furious during the third quarter of the Seahawks game Thursday when offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell decided they should throw the ball rather than run it on the 1-yard line. Sherman expressed his disagreement with the play call by screaming at Bevell on the sideline.

Seattle radio host Jim Moore asked Sherman about the incident during a press conference Tuesday, and he was still pretty heated about it.

Moore asked the Seattle cornerback if he felt he had a “better handle” of the team’s play calling than his coaching staff and Sherman went off on him, the Seattle Times reports.

“No, I just had a, we had a prior experience,” Sherman said referring to a certain Super Bowl losing play, “so we talked about it. “But let me guess–you have a better play to call,” Sherman said to Moore. “Let me guess, you have a better experience.”

When Sherman left the room, he approached Moore and said “You don’t want to go there. You do not. I’ll ruin your career.”

“You’ll ruin my career? How are you going to do that?” Moore responded to the threat. Then Sherman told him he would “make sure” he doesn’t get a media pass anymore.

Someone in the Seahawks organization (perhaps head coach Pete Carroll, judging from a tweet by Sherman) must have informed Sherman he has no control over media credentials.

Sherman tweeted late Tuesday that he regretted getting “personal” with the media, but didn’t exactly apologize. The “next one should be fun,” Sherman added expecting more questions to come from the media.
