Is Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman a dirty player? He sure as hell played dirty last night, the most egregious example is above, when a clearly offsides Richard Sherman threw himself into the legs of Bills kicker Dan Carpenter during his kicking motion which should clearly be a roughing the kicker penalty or unnecessary roughness. No call from the referees. On that play. As unbelieveable as that sounds. The referees were terrible during this game, they missed many calls all in favor of the Seattle Seahawks, and the league needs to be embarassed by the performance of their officials during this game.
It is a terrible combination when the referees give a player the superstar treatment, and then that player decides to play extremely dirty, and taking multiple cheap shots during the game. It seems that the officials met before the game, decided that they were not going to call pentalties on Richard Sherman, and then Sherman got word of this decision so he decided to break rules constantly and put the health of opposing players at risk.
Take a look at this cheap shot, right in front of the referee with the ball in the air, Richard Sherman absolutely levels a defenseless receiver. No call.

Richard Sherman is a star player, but the way that he played on Monday Night Football was inexcusable, and the fact that the referees let him get away with cheap shot after cheap shot was appalling. Obviously Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan was upset with Sherman’s play after the game, but the league has to do something to discipline Sherman, you cannot let a player go unpunished for repeated cheap shots on defenseless opposing players which could have led to serious injuries:
