Bad Blood Between Richard Sherman And Michael Crabtree Goes Back To Last Summer At A Charity Event Of Larry Fitzgerald's

Bad Blood Between Richard Sherman And Michael Crabtree Goes Back To Last Summer At A Charity Event Of Larry Fitzgerald's

Richard Sherman‘s late play of the game to help Seattle Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship match was revenge for an altercation between him and Michael Crabtree last summer.

According Jerry Brewer of the Seattle Times, both players attended a charity event of Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Crabtree apparently refused to shake Sherman’s hand – a gesture which almost led to a fight.

Sherman’s older brother Branton said that Richard vowed to make a play against the 49ers player to embarrass him.

And that’s why his post-match interview was so intense on Sunday.
