The Denver Broncos are favored to win, and team most fans will root for at the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII against NFC Champions, Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium, according to ESPN’s Sportsnation and the New York Post.
The New York Post has the Broncos favored to win by only one point over the Seahawks, as well as many other sports books, though other sites show Broncos at 3-1/2 points over Seahawks too.
Many sports fans have predicted both Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks would meet in the next Super Bowl taking place at East Rutherford, New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Sunday February 2nd, with a win all the way for Seattle; but after Seahawks’ corner back, Robert Sherman’s post game tirade that scared off FOX’ reporter, Erin Andrews, many sports fans were completely turned off, and now hoping Peyton Manning could get that second Super Bowl ring.
Robert Sherman’s post-game epic ‘diss’ and rant started when Andrews simply asked Sherman to explain and take her to how he helped win the game for the Seahawks, and Sherman ranted, “Well, I’m the best corner of the game…when you first try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you’re gonna get!”
Sherman angrily continued with his brash behavior and disrespected 49ers receiver, Michael Crabtree by adding, “Don’t you ever talk about me!” Andrews softly asked Sherman, “Who was talking about you?” Sherman yelled, “Crabtree! …Don’t you open your mouth about the best, or I’m going to shut it for you real quick!”
This incident lit up the Twitter-verse, as well as sparked up comments left and right on Facebook and social media.
Sherman’s rude outburst turned many sports fans off, and fans will use this to root for the Broncos now. ESPN’s Sportnation even ran a poll asking, “How do you feel about Richard Sherman’s televised post game comments about Michael Crabtree?”
There were fans who thought what Sherman did was “cool,” and said this sports trash talk comes with the property, while 61% thought it was not cool, compared to the 39% that were not thin-skinned and surprised by Sherman's comments.
