On Friday night’s Unguarded with Rachel Nichols on CNN, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said he really does not have any “regrets” about the post-game rant that gained him widespread notoriety, along with often racist backlash. If there is anything about the entire episode that he does regret, it’s how the media “covered” it.
After playing clips of Sherman’s original post-game interview and the subsequent press conference, Nichols asked him what, if anything, he “regrets.”
“Well, there isn’t much about it I regret,” Sherman said. “Mostly I regret, I guess, the storm afterwards. The way it was covered, the way it was perceived, and the attention it took away from the fantastic performances from my teammates. That would be the only part of it I regret, the way it was covered.”
He did admit that he “probably shouldn’t have attacked another person,” in this case meaning the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree. “That was immature and I probably shouldn’t have done that. I regret doing that.”
