The Seattle Seahawks beat the 49ers this weekend after cornerback Richard Sherman’s dramatic game-saving play, and will advance to the Super Bowl. Due to the closeness of the game, bad blood was all but inevitable. Still, Sherman didn’t have to make things worse with a dramatic WWE-esque rag on Michael Crabtree with Fox’s Erin Andrews.
