Stephen Colbert: Apeman and thug Richard Sherman channels Mohammad Ali

Crabtree facemasks sherman

Michael Crabtree and Richard Sherman began their rivalry in the NFL pre season with some words being tossed about.

After batting down the pass intended for Michael Crabtree causing an interception to win the game in the last second of the NFL playoff, Richard Sherman extended his hand in the end zone to Crabtree who responded by with a slap in the face. A few seconds later came the now infamous 5 second interview. I am told MOB means “money over witches” which I admit as a white guy I don’t understand. Subsequently Michael Sherman has been called a thug over 600 times, which is 600 more times than real thug Richie Incognito was called a thug. And you know, dreadlocks just makes it worse. Gosh do white guys every hate that.

By the way, the $7875 fine put upon Sherman was not for his aftergame rant, but for a cutthroat sign he gave to San Francisco the quarterback a bit earlier.

[Richard Sherman] Well I’m the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gon’ get! Don’t you ever talk about me!

[Erin Andrews] Who was talking about you?

[Richard Sherman] Crabtree! Don’t you open your mouth about the best! Or Imma shut it for you real quick! M-O-B!
