Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman isn't a thug or a hero, he's an average guy making poor decisions.
Everyone has their take on Richard Sherman, the trash-talking Seattle Seahawks cornerback who captured the national media spotlight for his behavior following the NFC Championship Game. You either hate the guy or love him, or so you've been told to.
Supporters say he's a misunderstood hero and point at his rough upbringing and admirable personal accomplishments. Adversaries say he's a thug, classless, and harmful to the overall perception of African-American athletes. Both sides are wrong, and extreme views of a very middle-ground topic. Don't fall into the hype, you're better than that.
