Richard Sherman gets into war of words with PFT over Thursday night games

Richard Sherman has never hidden his disdain for the NFL playing games on Thursday nights, just four days removed from their last action. He’s consistently called out the league for claiming to be concerned about player safety when they put two teams at a higher risk for injury every week.

Right now player safety is the hot topic following Tua Tagovailoa’s scary concussion in Thursday night’s contest between the Dolphins and the Bengals. Sherman is now doing commentary for Amazon on their TNF broadcasts, which some folks have taken as a sign of hypocrisy. Some of the more outspoken voices come from Pro Football Talk.

PFT’s Michael David Smith started the action with this tweet:

Sherman responded with the obvious answer that his employment has no impact whatsoever on the league playing Thursday games or not.

Then Mike Florio jumped in, calling out Sherman for not carrying over his anti-Thursday energy into his new job.

Sherman didn’t back down, replying with a few more tweets:

Sherman finished his thread by inviting Florio to continue watching.
