Sherman Voices Disdain For Goodell’s Comments, Serena Williams Fires Back, Rymer Hit In Face


Richard ShermanSeattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman always lets his voice be heard loud and clear. Don’t expect that to stop any time soon. When asked about NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s comments back in February suggesting that any player who got two personal fouls be ejected from a game, Sherman didn’t hold back. “I think it’s foolish. But it sounds like something somebody who’s never played the game would say, something that they would suggest, because he doesn’t understand. He’s just a face. He’s just a suit. He’s never stepped foot on the field and understood how you can get a personal foul.” He had similar feelings on the NFL’s murky definition of what a catch is.


Indian Wells tournament director Raymond Moore had some disturbing things to say about women’s tennis recently. “If I was a lady player, I’d go down every night on my knees and thank God that Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal were born, because they have carried this sport. They really have.” Serena Williams, who lost in the women’s final to Victoria Azarenka, didn’t appreciate the comments. “I don’t think any women should be down on their knees thanking anybody like that.” Williams eluded to all the people who only watch Tennis for female stars such as herself and her sister. Then she brought up last year’s U.S. Open. “I’m sorry, did Roger play in that final? Or Rafa, or any man, play in that final that was sold out before the men’s final? I think not.”


The Milwaukee Brewers may have lost one of their potential players. Outfielder Rymer Liriano left Sunday’s game on a stretcher after he was hit in the face by a pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers’ Matt West. The ball hit him just under the eye. Coaches and staff rushed over to help and carted him off the field after about ten minutes. Teammates say the player’s nose was still gushing blood when he got back to the training room. Liriano remains hospitalized.
