Ask The Expert:
Question: In your opinion as a therapist, Did Richard Sherman of The Seattle Seahawks act classless when he ranted after the game?
Cali Estes’ Answer: Classless? I think not. Adrenaline, a victory, and being an entertainer played a full role in his reaction. He did go to Stanford, so he is highly educated and as we know, bad press is good press because we are all talking about it aren’t we? He is not angry or aggressive, and certainly not classless. As a nation we expect a specific type of entertainer, yet the fans have no ‘class’ when they smack talk. It is part of the game and quite frankly very entertaining!”
