Richard Sherman

Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback Richard Sherman has had some heated exchanges with the media over the years, but one of the most notable came Tuesday with local radio co-host Jim Moore. Moore, a long-time presence on the Seattle sports scene who used to write for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and now works as a co-host on 710 AM ESPN, questioned Sherman about his sideline argument with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell over a pass play from the one-yard line Thursday.

Sherman took exception:

Moore asked a question of Sherman stating that what he didn’t understand is that Bevell is trying to call plays he thinks will work but that Sherman appears to think he has a “better handle’’ of what should be called.

“No, I just had a, we had a prior experience (a reference to the interception at the end of Super Bowl XLIX) so we talked about it,’’ Sherman replied to Moore. “But let me guess — you have a better play to call. Let me guess, you have a better experience.’’

When Moore said no, Sherman said “then you should probably kind of stop.’’

The press conference wrapped up a few minutes later, and Sherman then went after Moore on his way out:

As Sherman walked off the stage and down a walkway that headed out of the auditorium, he passed Moore and said “You don’t want to go there. You do not. I’ll ruin your career.”

Said Moore: “You’ll ruin my career? How are you going to do that?”

Said Sherman: “I’ll make sure you don’t get your media pass anymore.”

Sherman later apologized on Twitter:

And then relayed what appears to be feedback from head coach Pete Carroll:
