Richard Sherman Rips Seahawks Fans Burning His Jersey Because He Signed With 49ers (TWEET)
It’s going to take some time to get used to the fact that Richard Sherman is actually a member of the San Francisco 49ers.
The former Seattle Seahawks CB was released by the team on Friday, and he took no time joining forces with a division rival, signing a 3-year deal with the 49ers on Saturday. Seahawks fans took it hard and most of them vented their frustration directly at Sherman for signing with a rival.
A couple of fans even took their Sherman jerseys and burned them, while others just called him a ‘traitor’ online.
After seeing the backlash, the newest 49ers CB took to Twitter and blasted his former fan base, telling them to direct their anger to the front office that got rid of him in the first place.
Instead of getting upset with me for going to a new team how about you get upset with the people who forced me to go. If one job fires you and another job offers you a great position I highly doubt most ppl would go back to the old job for a lot less money
