It was a huge part of my game personally as well. But there is a huge difference between trash talking and taunting. Sherman's antics are more TO than they are Payton/Jordan/Sanders. It is bush and, frankly, embarrassing.
Hyperbole anyone? We get it, you're over 60 and I'm not. Guess what? Our sensibilities are different so deal with it and understand you're in the minority. It happens you know? People age so I don't fault you that you dislike Sherman and don't understand his mindset or the total mind games he's using against his competition. To full effect I might add.
Haha what a sad state when a post about class elicits this response.
I love the ignorance. "I'm young, therefore I'm not expected to act with or understand the concept of class, leave that for you old folks. Deal with it!" Our future is in good hands.
FWIW I'm nowhere close to old. I just choose to carry myself with class, and would prefer that those that represent our city do the same.
I completely understand his mindset. I have competed at high levels, recently I might add. I am a marginal athlete that used my brain and mind games to get me most of the success I was able to have. Yet, I maintained respect for competition and those I competed against.
The real issue is, is that this is growing. We would like to think he is going to start acting with more maturity, but how many of us believe that he will? At this pace, this is going to become a problem that effects our team. And when these kinds of things effect your team, they tend to come to a head at precisely the wrong time.
Talk your trash, get your edge. But there is a line between getting an edge, and acting immature and becoming an embarrassment.
