STP's BLOG 06/24/14 "Leave Richard Sherman Alone"
It’s not very often that I go on a soap box on my blog, but I feel like this one warrants a trip on the “box”.
Last night I read that Richard Sherman has decided to not speak with local media anymore due to the fact that the Seattle Times posted a story about him buying a new home, and his address was listed.
This pisses me off to no end. I get that Richard is a public figure, but does he not deserve any privacy? He does. I don’t blame him one bit for being mad.
For all the local media that are making it a point to say that his home info is available to the public for anyone that wants to find it…shut up. I know, if you search for it you can find this stuff…but you just made it easy for most people that would be too lazy to do that research.
What’s the big goal behind this? Cool…we know where our favorite Seahawks player lives. I wouldn’t care if this was a story about anyone…a rival teams star player, a politician, etc…just because we can find out where someone lives doesn’t mean we should take advantage of that…or exploit it like the Times did.
Also…shame on you “fans” that are going to his house to try and meet him. That’s his home, ass****’s…that’s where he and his lady live, show the man respect. Richard does enough in the community with charitable events where you can meet him and get a pic or autograph, don’t be THAT guy that thinks it’s cool to visit him at his home.
And kids, get off my lawn. Ok, I’m off the soap box.
