FIT-THROWING PLAYER TEMPORARILY TOSSED FROM TEAM: A Stanford football player wasn’t showing much smarts last week, and now he won’t hit the field this week:
SPORTING NEWS reports that Cardinal WR Richard Sherman won’t play in Stanford’s next game vs. Washington State.During last Saturday’s loss, Sherman was slapped with a personal foul. Not too soon afterwards, he was caught by TV cameras throwing a sideline fit, screaming and pointing at teammates, having to be restrained by a coach.
Coach Jim Harbaugh said Sherman, the team’s leading receiver, “will not be allowed to participate in any football activities this week.”And it may be more than one game that Richard takes a rest. The SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE adds that Sherman had been suspended “indefinitely“.
It’s not the first time a Cardinal player has been benched this year. Basketball big man Brook Lopez was thrown off the team for not attending class.
