San Francisco 49ers LB Navorro Bowman was carted off of the football field in the middle of the NFC Championship game after getting his leg rolled up on. It was a scary sight.
Bowman made an incredible play to strip the football out and looked like he had come down with the ball for the turnover, but the Seahawks came away from the pile with the football and Bowman left the pile with a jacked up knee.
As Bowman was getting carted off the field, some chump fan decided to dump some popcorn at Bowman on his way out. That is a classless move right there!
Richard Sherman (not exactly the picture of class right now) shared his thoughts on the incident as well:
“I can handle it,” he wrote, but Sherman did not smile upon learning that a handful of Seahawks fans chose to dump popcorn on NaVorro Bowman as the 49ers linebacker left the field with a potentially torn ACL.
“One thing I can’t accept is what I read after the game about Seahawks fans throwing food at (Bowman) as he was being carted off the field with his knee injury,” Sherman wrote. “If it’s true, it’s beyond terrible. That’s as low as it gets. I’m sure whoever did this is in a small minority of fans, because I don’t think that kind of action is an accurate representation of the character of the 12th man.”
“Navorro Bowman is a great player who plays the game the right way. When he went down, I dropped to a knee and prayed for him. He deserves better than having food thrown at him as he’s carted off a field. All players deserve better than that.” (NFL.com)
Well spoken Sherman! If Richard Sherman says that is not classy, then you know it is bad!
