Video: Richard Sherman rips Skip Bayless on ESPN
Richard Sherman isn't a fan of ESPN personality Skip Bayless.
And you thought Sherman wasn't holding back during his Twitter feud with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis a few weeks back. Sherman's gloves were off before he stepped into the ring with Bayless.
The interview began with a montage of Sherman's most memorable trash-talking moments. Sherman brushed off a question about his rivalry with Revis before Smith asked how good he thinks he is. Sherman directed his response toward Bayless.
"... Skip can say whatever he wants. But Skip, whenever you refer to me, whenever you speak to me, whenever you address me, address me as All-Pro, Stanford graduate," he said. "Because those are some accomplishments you can aspire to, [but] you will never accomplish. You have never accomplished anything. ..."
The impetus for the resentment toward Bayless, it appears, was Bayless' contention that Sherman is "not even in the same class" as Revis. Bayless tried to steer the conversation toward Sherman's trash-talking and his rivalry with Revis, but Sherman wouldn't have it.
He called Bayless an "ignorant, pompous, egotistical cretin" before vowing to "crush you on here, in front of everybody, because I'm tired of hearing about it."
With that, here's a video of the segment:
