Richard Sherman fined: NFL decides to fine Richard Sherman for NFC title game

Richard Sherman got fined by the NFL for his behavior during the NFC title game. The NFL decided to fine Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks $7,875 for his actions. According to a report from Friday (Jan. 24), it stemmed from an unsportsmanlike conduct and taunting penalty that he received late in the fourth quarter.

The flag came after Sherman was key in helping the Seahawks intercept a pass by Colin Kaepernick on the last drive of the game for the San Francisco 49ers. After trying to shake hands with Michael Crabtree and getting a shove to the face, Sherman went to the sidelines and started making a choking gesture aimed at how Kaepernick had been playing.

The fine wasn't for the rant that he had with Erin Andrews later on, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell didn't find it very amusing either. He stated that, "No, I'm not cheering for that. He is such a great young man. He is extremely well-spoken, does great things off the field, obviously a great player on the field. I want him to present himself in the best possible way and make sure that he is reflecting on himself and his family in a positive way."

Despite getting fined, Richard Sherman will be leading the Seattle Seahawks' defense against the Denver Broncos at the 2014 Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 2. The game is taking place in New Jersey and could very well be affected by a cold weather system heading toward the area.
