Richard Sherman's 18 second rant, following his game-winning interception, captivated viewers a week ago Sunday. Some viewers found his honesty refreshing. Others said it was unsportsmanlike, and referred to him as a "thug." Sherman said he regrets his comments, but "thug" is just the new n-word. Now Sherman and his team are about to play the Super Bowl, and the debate continues.
