    I don’t really like the NFL. There are plenty of reasons for that the Craig Kimbrel Jersey military-industrial complex-esque hold it has on the country and horrifyingly routine violence are two of them.Guys like Richard Sherman, though they’re not on the list. The Seattle Seahawks cornerback, as you’ve seen in a billion places, freaked everyone out on Sunday night when, literally minutes after the biggest play of his life, he spent a hilarious, honest, harmle s, unhinged few seconds with Erin Andrews.Pearls were clutched. Code words were used. Racism, as always, was publicly displayed. There are plenty of places you can go to find small and for . A lot of intelligent stuff has come out of the “incident,” or whatever you want to call it.The best place to start is with the man himself, : “It was loud, it was in the moment, and it was just a small part of the person I am.”For our purpose though hockey. Man, I thought as it happened, hockey could use Rick Porcello Jersey more of that. Hockey could use, like, dozens of Richard Shermans. Krys Barch doesn’t agree. In the world of we have measures that force someone like to behave with cla s! Krys Barch (@krysbarch) what? Why?This isn’t new ground: one of the most exhausting parts of the NHL is its systemic desire to erase most elements of joy and spontaneity from the game at least publicly. We saw it last week with P.K. Subban. We saw it earlier this season with Tomas Hertl. We saw it last season with Nail Yakupov. It’s disheartening, largely because of the total lack of upper-level thought a sociated with it. with his teammates after a game-winning goal? Cla sle s. ? Cla sle s. It’s tough to characterize the power-wielding hockey community’s overall reaction to that sort of stuff as anything but Puritan and poorly thought out Puritanism, at that.Because David Price Jersey really, what’s more ridiculous: using your skill to stomp a dude you justifiably can’t stand, then talking about it on TV, or punching him in the face, as Barch implies? Is what Richard Sherman did more disrespectful than, say, , or what James Neal did to Brad Marchand a few seconds before? Be honest and then ask yourself, Why did I dislike what Richard Sherman did in the first place?Another way of looking at it: the hockey community turned itself in a knot when Peter Gammons referred to it as a “minor sport” on Sunday morning . In the big picture, he’s wrong, because a $3.5 billion industry, by definition, Andrew Benintendi Jersey can’t be minor. He’s also speaking when , but that’s another i sue entirely.But if you are willing to concede that hockey is, at best, fourth or fifth in the American sporting conscience, and if you are interested in growing the game if you think it’s the greatest game of all, and if you want it to get the attention it deserves you should be willing to admit that the weird, hypocritical Fun Police act that regularly unfolds isn’t Nomar Garciaparra Jersey helping. At all.So yeah, let’s see a few more Richard Shermans. Let’s see some self-awarene s. Or, at minimum, let guys have fun in the heat of the moment when they do cool stuff. It doesn’t need to get more complicated than that.
