Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman may hail from Compton, California, but he insists he is not a thug or a gangsta -- despite his thuggish rant in the most talked-about post-NFC title game interview ever.
Most of the country is still buzzing about Sherman's post-game interview with FOX Sports reporter Erin Andrews, in which he disses San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree for disrespecting him after the game.
"I'm the best corner in the game!," he shouted. "When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you gonna get! Don't you ever talk about me!"
A befuddled Andrews asked, "Who was talking about you?"
"N-- Crabtree!," said Sherman, who caught himself just as he was about to blurt out the N-word on national TV.
